“We'll be back!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

This was our first visit since the restaurant changed hands, and we were very impressed. We went quite late on a Sunday, and the place was still hopping. We shared crab rangoons and a soup with dumplings (yum!) and noodles. The rangoons were big, freshly fried, and so much better than the usual sort. The soup was delicious, and there was some left to bring home. I can't wait to try the stir-fry dishes!

“great Chinese”

Terrific Szechuan food. Try the soup dumplings and Chili Shrimp. They make all their dumplings from scratch.

“Great food; visitors from China were very satisfied!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

Just came back from a great meal at Szechuan's Dumpling with friends who were visiting from China. We had the pigs feet dish (so yummy) and other dishes that Americans may not typically order. In order to get the most of the experience, I would suggest taking a few risks with the vast menu and letting your culinary senses explode!

“We keep going back!”

Very large servings. Wonderful dumplings and vegetable dishes. Particularly enjoyed the juicy pork dumplings, with chicken soup inside. Also the garlic eggplant in hot pot. Good sign: lots of Asians eat here. Nice decor and good service.

“A great Mother's Day present!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

My son took me here, having heard good reports of this new restaurant. I was very impressed. We were welcomed and seated promptly. The menu was enormous, so I put myself in my host's hands: we had shrimp-and-chives dumplings, beef-and-veg ditto, mango chicken, and salt-and-pepper shrimp fried shells-on. The food was very tasty, especially the chicken, and there was plenty to take home. Despite its being a busy day, all the guests were greeted cheerfully, service wad quick but not rushed, and we were thanked by all the waitstaff when we left. A happy time.
