I have been going to Szechaun House since it was opened twenty some years ago and still under the same ownership. Kudos to Robert and his manager Jean. This is the best, reliable and generous portions Chinese restaurant in Baltimore. If you are adventurous, order some items from the traditional Chinese section. Try fillet black cod steamed in soy sauce... More

Always crowed for dinner, but the good food and reasonable price explains that! Further, the customer orientation is shown by a plate of oriental chips and peanuts is kept full in the waiting line, and if the line really gets long they have been known to bring free soft drinks! Food is good and reasonable portions, although staff is often... More

Consistently good food and service, but, I think it's high time they invest in new table cloths, as ours was stained. The hot towels were cold and damp rags and the menu covers are old, tattered and getting kinda sticky and gross. We've been visiting there since they first opened and really like the chow, man. To their credit they... More

It's authentic, spicy and as good as the food I taste in Hong Kong! Plenty of diversity of dishes including unique items like water spinach and custard buns. I keep going back for more!

I had the sushi lunch combo. I got a California roll and a shrimp, avocado roll. It comes with a very small salad. They could leave that off because it is so small and it does not have dressing. I ordered my food for carry out and ate Chinese noodle while I waited for my food. It took about 10... More

The strange thing is, this place is busy! When we ordered, I asked for extra spicey. My entree was so bland you could feed it to a baby,(but he couldn't chew it) It was cooked so long the pieces were like a rock. My husband's meal was eatable but again very bland. Had trouble getting the wait person for a... More

This was our first time here. We called ahead and told them when we wanted to pick up our order. It was packed and ready when we arrived. The online ordering was cumbersome so we simply called. It is so nice to have an option for levels of spiciness for each order. The soups were all excellent as were the... More

This is one of the more popular Chinese restaurants in Baltimore County...I eat here about 3 times a month...love the szechuan shrimp...it seems this is almost always busy and sometimes you have to wait a bit for a table, but people don't seem to mind... located in a strip center so there's plenty of parking
