Always a winner

I dine at Szechuan around once a year, usually for a celebration of someone's birthday or just a get together with friends. It is a large restaurant and tables are reasonably spaced so there is still a sense of intimacy on your individual table despite other groups dining. Food is delicious and... read more

I've been to nearly all the top rated Chinese places in Sydney but find it hard to go past this little gem who have been wooing my friends n family with delicious meals for more than 15 years.

Never again! My partner and I ate at this restaurant. When the food finally arrived it was hot on the outside and still frozen in the middle and there were cockroaches crawling up the leg of our table. Would not recommend.

The Garden hasn't changed for many a year. Why change a winning formula. Located adjacent to the IBM office, it never fails to please with its Szechuan dishes. I'm particularly fond of the szechuan chicken which yesterday came in a fiery bath of dried chillies. The scollops dish is always a winner too. Washed down with some of Robert Oatley's... More

This restaurant is a hidden gem. The Menu whilst not too expansive offers a range of dishes where you cannot go wrong. A mixture of provincial cuisine along with matching Aussie wines and that is in my book outstanding thinking and local sourcing. Way too many Asian restaurants have a disjointed wine list that does not suit the cuisine. Many... More

We ate early one evening in mid October. Only three other tables of diners, in a large restaurant. The waiter was helpful, the food was quite tasty, but I wouldn't rave about it.

Had an early meal for one on a Friday night, whilst in St Leonards for business. Nice ambience, prompt and friendly staff, and excellent food. Had Szechuan John Dory and steamed bok choy. All that I needed.

This place has been around for years - first went here when it was on Chandos St - loved it then and still love it now. The "Il Classico" - Chicken in a wok - may not be as numbing as it once was - but still packs a punch! The popper chicken starter - excellent - see photo -... More

We hadn't visited this restaurant for quite some time and our experience yesterday will probably mean that we'll be back pretty soon. The food was excellent. The service was pretty good, and they accept BYO. Spicy but not so hot that it cannot be enjoyed. Small criticism - no deserts - A couple of ice creams only.
