I have been going to the Little Szechuan since I moved to Tempe in 1975. I have never had a bad meal or poor service. They truly care about their customers.

Ate here during a convention I was attending. It was good food and reasonable prices in a nice setting. The dish I ordered was a little spicy. I'll probably eat here again when I'm back in town.

The food is good, and service is good. We go here often because it's close to work. I've never had a bad experience.

A great stop for some great food. Driving along University Avenue we saw this little Gem and decided to give it a try. It had the look of a local family spot. Very homey and very yummy. Well worth the stop.

We four had a very good Szechuan dishes at this humble Chinese restaurant located at 524 W. University Dr. Tempe, AZ. Shrimp with broccoli, Devil's chicken and Eggplant in garlic sauce were all delicious. The server treated us very well, and we all had a very lovely evening.

Average. Nice owner, hard worker. OK food. Don't expect Los Angeles or San Francisco Chinese food but of course there wasn't much to pick from around the University too. Went out to get Hawaiian food around the University but one look at it left and came here.
