This is not meant to be offensive, but I think some of the reasons people are not rating this restaurant as well as others is because certain people are ordering non Szechuan food, i.e., chow mein, wonton soup, etc... It is a Szechuan restaurant after all.
And ordering Seafood at a Szechuan restaurant is akin to ordering fresh seafood at a restaurant in Saskatchewan. Sichuan province is land locked; there isn't an ocean within 1000 miles of the place.
If people stick to the spicier Szechuan dishes like Deluxe Dan Dan noodles, General Tso chicken, Mapo tofu, Shredded chicken cold plate appetiser , ginger beef, Mongolian beef, etc... I believe they would enjoy more (though the beef with green vegetable is quite good). Just my opinion.
I have found the staff very helpful in describing dishes if they are asked.

The cook and owner used to work as a chef on one of the big cruiseship companies that sailed the Orient.
I come here for lunch because it is nearby and a better value than the Thai House and with much better service and faster. It is one of the best bargains in town. For $5.50 you get a crisp spring roll with spicy dipping sauce, a good size side of rice, and the entree of your choice.
I usually get the beef ginger and mushrooms and my coworker orders the egglplant with basil. The vegetables are very well done, not too tender and have great colour. Service is good.
