And very popular. At 8:00 on a Wednesday night, the restaurant only had one table available, and the restaurant was full and getting new customers even when we left. Most were Asian--all excellent signs that we'd picked a good place (we were travelling through, and...More

We stopped for dinner at Szechuan First in Kent yesterday on July 4th - worried that they'd be closed, happy they weren't. The four of us ordered fried whole rock fish, fish flavored spicy eggplant, salt and pepper whole shrimp in the shell, and stir...More

We had the Spicy Crispy Fish Fillet and the Spicy Eggplant. Both were very good but the former was spicier. Very good price for both. Love coming here when we need something spicy.

My brother loves this place but I don't share the same feeling. I think the food is greasy and the quality is average at best. The people are nice though which is not typical of Chinese restaurant.

If You Are A Chop Suey Fan, YOU PROBABLY WON'T LIKE SZECHUAN FIRST! To me Szechuan is a special cuisine, and most Chinese restaurants in the U.S. simply don't understand Szechuan cuisine and don't care. They'd rather hustle horribly concocted Cantonese recipes loaded with sugar...More
