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.

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!

Really does a restaurant have such an extensive menu as Tacoma Szechuan has. The food is authentic Hong kong-style, mixed in with Szechuan. The lunch servings are very ample, and they have a wide variety to choose from. I come here approximately three to six times a month, and on the weekends too. The lamb cumin dishes are excellent, as... More

I ordered the Mapo Tofu with beef, twice cooked pork and Szechuan dumplings. All dishes were okay but way too oily. Others at my table said the same thing, just way too oily. Service was good. And things looked clean. I'll try it again sometime. I liked that they had chili oil and black vinegar at the table as condiments.... More

We have gotten takeout from this restaurant a couple of times, and sometimes it was good and sometimes it was mediocre. I was raised on Szechuan food, so my test dish is always the hot and sour soup. The first time we got takeout, it was fabulous and I wanted to eat a bucket of it. The second time, it... More
