I am a NY transplant and was about to eliminate chinese food from my menu, until I discovered Szechaun Delight. I can no longer do the szechuan dishes thanks to allergies, and usually try to be somewhat healthy while still getting some flavor. Every location I’ve tried (and I’ve tried each one that placed a menu on my door, or sent one in the mail) would overcook the vegetables, and the other dishes just tasted terrible. Not so with Szechuan Delight, the vegetables are crisp, and the meals are tasty and well seasoned. I’ve tried quite a few of their dishes and have enjoyed them all. I even enjoyed their shrimp with lobster sauce (after I added soy sauce), and I’ve never liked that dish before!! I'm not too fond of their BBQ ribs appetizer, but I usally order steamed dumplings as my appetizer, and can't do a fair comparison. Today we’re experimenting with the healthy champagne chicken, the healthy chicken with vegetables, and the pepper steak. I suspect I will be pleased with these as well. To top it all off, the person who takes my order when I call, is ALWAYS pleasant, friendly, and helpful. The same can be said for the delivery personnel. I've never eaten there however, and can not comment on the service or in-house atmosphere. My biggest complaint is that they never place a menu in the bag, and both my printers are on the fritz, so I always have to go online to check my bank statement to get the name of the restaurant so I can pull up on the online menu. Once one of my printers is fixed however, I will print the online PDF menu and this will cease to be a problem. Yes, I know, I could save the PDF version to my computer, or add the menu to my favorites, but that would be too logical. Plus, then I'd have to remember which computer I saved it to. : D If you want a pleasant staff, prompt delivery, and a meal you will enjoy, look no further than Szechaun Delight.
