This is where any Johnstowner knows to stop for a sit down Chinese meal. It reminds me of a PF Chengs that they have in big cities. The food is all consistent and much better than the take out or fast food versions of chinese food. IF you have not been in awhile stop in!

The original spot for Chinese in Johnstown. AAABA is not the same without stopping for some delicious fried rice. Way better than fast food Chinese.

Always great food that is fresh and tasty! The portions are humongous and well worth the wait for a table at times. Also get delivery and we are never disappointed. Staff are nice and respectful and always get the order correct!

My husband & I have been coming to Thunder in the Valley for nearly a decade now. We always make it a point to come to the Szechuan Restaurant & once again we are happy we did. We have met the new owners & though Sam (the previous owner) will always have a place in our heart, we truly have... More

Tried this and was very disapponted. It may have been just because it was busy, but the fried rice was mealy and the chicken was dry, the sauce insipid.

Since the old owners left, the prices have gone up and the food quality has gone down. It's very disappointing. The fried rice and the lo-mein noodles now have tons of pepper added to em. Some days it's more than other days. It's Chinese food, not Mexican!!!!

I have heard that it was better with the previous owners, but as far as Chinese food goes, this is still some of the best in the area. The prices are great for the amount of food that you get and the quality is fine. Overall, if you are in the area and craving Chinese food and do not want... More

Stop for the lunch buffet for the first time since the new owners have taken over unfortunately I left there disappointed with the food. It was ok but you could tell it has changed since the previous owner Sam was running the restaurant. Unfortunately what was once outstanding Food Fair has now turned into mediocre and average.
