Never again for take out – I regularly picked up carry out at Szechwan. Last time I ordered Szechwan Chicken it was totally burned and packed up anyway. I called and complained and the person argued with me and told me it was supposed to be crispy. The food was black, burned and smelled burned. I could smell it was burned in the car. The person on the phone argued with my about giving me a credit for the burned food. I was a regular customer who tipped generously when I picked up the food. They knew who I was and were still giving me greif.
Finally they agreed to credit the burned food.
At that point I could care less. I will never return there again. I tried other Chinese places in the area and found the food at the competion to be better quality for a much lower price.
Best service with very good food – This restaurant deserves more than a 7.0. I go there almost every week for an authentic diner. The restaurant has a not typical chinese interior but the personell is very friendly and polite. Many restaurants can learn from the way they treat their customers. The food is not expensive and we love it. I recommend the mongolian beef, the noodles with chicken and the honey/walnut shrimps. Please eat with sticks (my advice). The food comes quickly. The restaurant is allways minimum half full but reservations are not necessary.
Not that great... – Their lunch specials include soup and salad but the soup was bland and the salad dressing was just sprinkles of vineagar. I had the shrimp with vegetables which was ok, a friend of mine had the tangerine chicken which did not have a tangerine flavor. However, the food came out pretty fast, so if you're looking for a quick bite then go right ahead.
The Best Place TO Eat – This is one of my favorite places to eat. Have been going here for years and have never had to even wait more than a few seconds to be seated. Staff is wonderful, fast and polite. Great place to eat with friends or family. I work at a local hotel and send my guests there and they have all loved it as well.
Worst Chinese food I've had in the States! – Oh, My God! I can't believe how bad the food is at this place. It's unauthentic and pricey and really isn't worth the value. We had take-out and the food was REALLY disappointing. I definitely will not go back!
