The food always arrived hot and so savory. We always order large portions so we can keep it throughout the week. That's how much we love it!

I ordered a large amount of food. I wanted to substitute a large plain fried rice for some of the white rice. I called and was told that it was $6 extra. I expected a couple of dollars, but six? Ok. I went with it. Then I called back to complain about it and was greeted with a yes it is $6 by another person. I asked if we were still getting some white rice with the order and was told no. So, I ordered a small white rice for $1.50 more. When my order came, I paid the extra $7.50 to the driver. Opened my order and there were large containers of white rice that came with my order. So, although it wasn't a large sum of money, I paid for something I was already getting plenty of. To top it all off, there were no fortune cookies or sauces with my order. For $124.00 order you think they 1. Could have thrown in a fried rice for free 2. Would have made sure that we had fortune cookies. I know other Chinese restaurants that would have thrown in some almond cookies with such a large order. We used to love this place and have not ordered here often due to the price increase. It was a special occasion and I wanted something good. The only reason I will order from here in the future is because I have many coupons for free stuff that I didn't realize I still had. The food is good, but the service is quite lacking.

The food is always consistently good. Employees are helpful and courteous. Their takeout is always ready at the time it’s requested to be ready for pickup

Ordered food online at 5:20pm for a 6pm pick up/ I called restaurant at 6pm to verify if food would be ready and was told it would not be ready until 6:45pm. Went to pick up food at 7pm and order was not ready. Finally received food at 7:30pm only to get it home and discover it was all cold. Not fresh. Staff was not organized and was focusing on fulfilling delivery orders and not online orders. When I called restaurant to inform food was cold - it was received with indifference

Orange chicken uncooked and beef to stall over cooked

Missing the requested utensils and napkins. Food was great though!
starstarstar_borderstar_borderstar_border Apr 18, 2021
Made a note with “please verify correct address” “mount prospect NOT DES PLAINES”. Still got delivered to the wrong address, so food wasn’t hot when it got here.

Great food!

Driver came back in to ask why i didnt tip. I did mean to but this is not very professional.

Ordering on line was easy and fast. As always , checking out at the restaurant is a wait.

Great food, great price, fast service!

Food was 1hour 45 minutes late. When I called they claimed they didn't get the order until 1 hour after I received my confirmation email. Then they told me the order was for pickup when I requested and was charged for delivery. Very disappointed.
starstarstar_borderstar_borderstar_border Jan 19, 2021
Food was pretty good I guess but 2 hours to receive a delivery only 2 miles from the restaurant?! I don’t think we will be ordering again.

Best lemon chicken ever! Sauce was fresh tasting, not overly sweet. Chicken wasn’t drenched in batter before deep frying. So delicious
starstarstarstarstar_border Dec 11, 2020
Disappointed the beef lo mein was made with angel hair pasta and not lo mein noodles. Also, on the menu it says it's made w mushrooms, carrot, napa cabbage and more but only contained water chestnuts and celery.

The order took 1.5 hours from the point of order until order was fulfilled for an ASAP of a order of Egg Rolls and Crab Rangoon. The food was so good.

It took an hour and a half to get my food delivered. My food was lukewarm when it got here

Very tasty!
starstar_borderstar_borderstar_borderstar_border Jul 07, 2019
Food was supposed to show up within 40-50 minutes of ordering, they sent it after they closed. Didn’t show up for 1.5 hours after ordering and I live 5 minutes down the road from them. Returned food

I love House of Szechwan, their egg rolls are huge, crab ragoons are stuffed with filling. I've never had a bad meal there
starstarstar_borderstar_borderstar_border Mar 10, 2019
I will never order online again, that's for sure. No way of knowing when food will be ready. If I need to call the restaurant to find out when my food will be done. I may as well call them to order and get it all done in 1 call rather than wasting time on some 3rd party sight
starstar_borderstar_borderstar_borderstar_border Mar 10, 2019
It took over two hours to receive the delivery, which would have been ok except that it took a phone call to ask where my order was which I was informed abruptly it is Saturday and "we are slammed, orders are taking two hours" . Funny thing is my order arrived fifteen minutes after I called, with lukewarm, congealed food. I know Saturdays are probably busy, but I received no empathy and crappy food.
