Great food, terrible service. Wanted hot pot and was told that we could not get it because 3 other tables that came in after us would be serviced over us. Took over an hour to get one of the dishes we ordered. Food was great but being treated terribly makes the experience poor.

I have been to Tacoma Szechuan several times over the past couple years. I went in yesterday for lunch and the food was wonderful as usual. Good value, good service and great food. But as I was in the bathroom, a member of the kitchen staff came in, did his business, and left without washing. That put a damper on... More

It was a our first visit and it won't be our last. Great Szechuan food! The Crispy chicken w/ hot garlic sauce was amazing. We ordered the family "A" combination so we could try a few different dishes. They were all very good. We also particularly enjoyed the hot & sour soup. Sadat provided great service and he was funny... More

Hubby and I were in the area doing other errands and tasks and decided to stop for lunch. We searched based upon Asian food and found this place. Their General Tso's chicken lunch special was wonderful, the portion large- so much so that hubby finished his General Tso's shrimp and THEN finished my chicken. Service was wonderful, attentive and friendly.... More

Love the Shrimp and Pea Pods on the lunch menu. My mother loves the Fish with Green Beans. Mine is mild. Hers is very spicy with lots of Chile peppers.Good service. Delicious food. Located in a busy strip mall off South Tacoma Way near Paldo Market so parking can be a challenge. Try it!

Can you believe it? Trip Advisor asks if this restaurant serves Shanghai food. The answer is NO! And, Cantonese food is not a mainstream dish here either... IT'S a bona fide Szechuan restaurant. And it IS one of the best Chinese restaurants in the pacific Northwest, not because it's fancy... but because they serve true Szechuan food. I list only... More

Have eaten here several times now, my partner and I thoroughly enjoy the food here. Hot Pot is delicious and a great value for a group of friends. There are traditional americanized chinese dishes plus some truly authentic ones too. We will certainly eat here again and again.

Decided to try a different Asian food place . This is a pretty authentic Chinese food restaurant. The service is very good and the food was fantastic.

Tacoma Szechuan Chinese Restaurant is a great place. Staff is friendly and welcoming. There is a long and varied menu. We had hot and sour soup, spicy garlic eggplant, and mu shu pork. All were excellent, well seasoned and expertly cooked. Prices were very reasonable. I am definitely going back!
