Kalvin’s Szechuan Restaurant 松林居 {Restaurant Review}

Sup Y’all. So, it was my mother’s birthday yesterday and I made a reservation at Kalvin’s Szechuan Restaurant for my family and a family friend and his kids.

I’ll lay it all down for you all first so you guys looking for a quick review don’t have to go through all my shiny photos and shit at the bottom!

★★★★☆

What I liked (Pros)

  • The food was authentic! (By the way, I never understood why he named it Szechuan, as pointed out by Jacqueline… it’s taiwanese food okay. :l)
  • It was clean, and the washrooms aren’t terrible.
  • It has a nice atmosphere.
  • Dishes are worth their price.
  • Waiters are nice. (There’s this one that really looks like my mother’s sister and she’s super duper kind :3 Wears glasses and talks in a slightly high voice. look for her.)
  • The owner of the restaurant comes out sometimes to socialize. (He’s a bit crazy but he’s cool. Actually, he’s my classmate’s dad! I never knew until a year ago.) Everytime I go to eat, somehow the owner always comes over to chat. LOL

What I didn’t like (Cons)

  • Why is it so damn far? it’s located on Victoria Dr. and it takes me forever to get there. Even thought I’m only sitting in the backseat… not driving.
  • It’s really really small. The mirrors give an illusion of a large restaurant, but in reality it’s actually really small. They’ve renovated but the size has never changed.
  • The seats of one table often bump into another table :c a n n o y i n g y o
  • There isn’t a back parking, and not really much of a front parking either.

So yeah… I definitely recommend it, from a Taiwanese person’s perspective. I don’t go there a lot but I’m always satisfied whenever I do! (Plus, the owner’s wife gives us discounts… pwahaha.)

They just need to get a bigger restaurant someday! 😀
