Good food. Good menu. Interesting tastes not particularly Americanized. Service is somewhat pressured.

I'm happy you enjoyed your meal with us, DeBobbo. Thanks for taking the time to write this review -- I greatly appreciate your support! Thank you, JW, Owner

Ingredients with gluten are pervasive in Chinese cooking. Despite that problem the management went out of its way to accommodate us with some interesting modifications on some classic Chinese dishes. The service was excellent. Everything arrived hot and tempting looking. Food was very tasty. Very...More

Very good chinese food. When we told the waiter we wanted 2 dishes for 3 people, he seemed annoyed, told us the 2 things wouldn't be enough to eat and mumbled something about a $10 minimum per person. So we ordered a beef Lo Mein...More

Simply disgraceful - there is no other word for it! Until this evening, this was our favorite Chinese food restaurant and very authentic Szechuan Food (my husbands family are from the Szechuan area of China). And my elderly mother's favorite Chinese food. However, we had...More

I just checked Yelp and saw this over there too. Again, I'm really upset to read about you and your family's most recent experience. It sounds like there was some miscommunication about your reservation time, and I apologize that we didn't handle it better. I...More

After a lengthy quest, we found Szechuan Gourmet. This place is special. The menu is lengthy, authentic, and exceptionally well prepared. This is where to go if you want great Chinese food. It's busy at meal times, but it's big enough to hold lots of...More

It is no longer necessary to travel downtown for authentic Szechuan cuisine, not altered for American taste. The varied menu includes several exotic offerings for the adventurous, and the list is marked with chili peppers to indicate degree of heat in the flavors. Personal favorites...More

We were by far the minority ethnic group in this restaurant--most of the customers were Asian. Really great Chinese food, some of it incredibly spicy, but not all of it. Wonderful dumplings. We have just scratched the surface of all of the offerings, but it...More

It's always disappointing to see that not everything was a hit, Daisy. From the underwhelming drinks to some dishes that didn't excite you, I wish we would've left you with a better impression. As you mentioned, no changes should cause us to be unorganized, and...More
