They make fun of their customers in Korean while you eat. The food was not that great and you can tell they think Americans are dumb. You can just tell with the way they snicker right to your face. My sushi fell apart and I had to try to put it back together before eating while being laughed at by... More

Strongly believe this is the best sushi in the area and the staff is always friendly. If you go during the dinner rush, expect a wait. Great value for the food and also serves Szechuan options (not just sushi). Plenty of parking and an outdoor dining options.

We went there for the first time based on the good reviews that we had read online. The atmosphere was nice, and the service was good. We ordered sushi for dinner. And the fish contained in the sushi was like warm rather than cold. By letting it sit out of the refrigerator for that long, it had started to go... More

Despite the name Szechuan Cafe do not expect to taste anything remotely Szechuan. This restaurant serves American-Chinese (American first because it is more American than Chinese). Because our Szechuan Pork, Szechuan Tofu and Szechuan Green Beans arrived with no hint of Szechuan flavor or heat even though there was a pepper picture along side of them we asked for some... More

We love this place! We are a frequent customer, at least once a week. Tim and the staff are very welcoming and they seemingly know every customer. It is a nice experience. The food is always on point. And if you don't see something on the menu, just ask and they are more than accommodating with special requests. I do... More

We have been eating here since it opened. The owner Tim is personable and cares about your experience. The food is very good for this type of restaurant. The Hot and Sour Soup is one of our favorites of any Asian restaurant...anywhere. Dry Crispy Beef is special fare, and the Sushi is good, although not as good as we have... More

Unfortunately, I live outside the delivery area, but I will drive past several alternatives that deliver for far better food. Shrimp toast is never greasy and egg rolls are never greasy. Dining in or carry-out, the service is always excellent. I like my oolong iced, and they always accommodate. And the Tim's roll is to die for.

They have the best food around! Always fresh and delicous! I prefer carry out over dine in but both are amazing! My only complaint would be one of the employees is extremely nasty and rude.
