Fantastic Szechuan & good ambiance
We love all types of Asian food. Sadly, finding a good place where the quality stays consistent is very hard. We've been to LIttle Szechuan a few times and are always raving about everything we try and so for so good on consistency. The other thing that make LS a destination is that its one of the few restaurants of this type that has lovely decor and ambiance. Because of this it makes the experience itself more enjoyable, not so much just a focus on the specific type of food.

The restaurant was very good. The staff was a bit too eager to service you, making us feel rushed. Good place to eat and will definitely be going back.

Really enjoyed the food, very authentic. The service was fine, seemed like it took a while to get our appetizer and then our food considering it was lunch and the service should be geared towards a speeder service.

A Twin Cities Prize
We are regulars of the Saint Paul location but took our extended family to the Saint Louis Park location for a college graduation celebration dinner. It was a wonderful choice. As usual, the food simply cannot be beat. The Szechuan food is unparalleled in the region. As regulars at the Saint Paul location, we are not used to the fancier atmosphere of the SLP location, which is not really needed to enjoy what they have to offer, but it is an extremely nice atmosphere. As I live very close to the Saint Paul location, we plan to remain regulars of it for years to come and to keep the SLP location in mind for future family gatherings.

The drinks were awesome. Food
The drinks were awesome. Food was great. The server was very sweet, she had outside tables so I know she was extremely busy so we were forgotten about. My friend and I weren't in a hurry so it didnt bother us. The server was very apologetic. Too sweet to get mad at since we got our food and drinks from others helping her. I would return without any hesitation. The food speaks for itself.

We had lunch at Little Szechuan at West End for our daughter's birthday and it was fabulous. The food was exceptional, the service great and the ambiance was lovely. We will most certainly return.

Great Menu at Reasonable Prices
I keep going back to this restaurant because even though they keep raising their prices, they have wonderful food--both adventurous and familiar dishes beautifully photographed. Happy hour is great for reduced prices on a nice selection of appetizers, but a signature drink I ordered was mostly ice and very weak. Is that usual for Happy Hour drinks? I don't usually go to HH.

Upscale Chinese fine dining
This gives you an idea what upscale Chinese dining in China means, as good as it can get in Minnesota. They are also kid friendly. Highly recommended !

not the usual Chinese fare
The food here was very good...and lots of different choices. Not just the "usual" Chinese choices. The veggie spring rolls and pot sitckers were our favorites, The green beans were also done perfectly. Definitely a return trip is in order.

Best Chinese food that I have
Best Chinese food that I have had in the US. I spent 2 years in Shanghai as an expat and this food was like going back. Not the tyical "American" Chinese food.

Excellent food. Each dish
Excellent food. Each dish is a gem. Our friends remarked that it was like dining in Hong Kong with the variety of unique dishes and excellent execution. One exception was the dry, brittle pancakes served with the Honey Duck. They could not be rolled and tasted of raw flour.

Decent food in a nice setting
Little Szechuan is a very attractive restaurant with excellent service. I think the food is just average compared to other Asian restaurants with less bling. Many others in their category offer more exciting and better prepared food, especially for the prices being charged.
That said, if you are in West End and looking for this kind of food you won't have a bad experience, just not an outstanding one. It is not a destination restaurant and can be bettered by a host of smaller, simpler places on University Ave. in St. Paul, or the Rainbow Chinese and Chin Dian in Minneapolis.

We'll be back
Went for a movie & T-giving dinner because it was the only West End restaurant open on T-giving (think "Christmas Story"). We had avoided this place previously because of friends that did not suggest it. We took the risk & had a great experience! We had a Chinese twist on a t- giving meal: honey duck (no head included ;), sweet potato cakes (sticky, dense and yummy), beans (savory goodness), pot stickers (hearty
& tasty), and the Taste of Szechewan chicken- extra mild (awesome flavor that you can add your own spice/heat to,f you wish). It was a cold night & 2 hot sakes, a spiked hot cider & mocktail completed the meal. Great, personable service and memorable meal for 3 people under $100.

Wonderful authentic Chinese food
My friends and I have loved the St Paul restaurant for years. We are all very happy that there is a location closer to our homes.
