Only flavor is garlic. Grubby pieces of chicken - grizzle and strange parts. Very disappointed

Usually order from Ollie's but thought we would give Grand Sichuan a try for lunch takeout. One of the dishes ordered was the Chicken with Cashews, should have been called Chicken with Celery. The fried rice was actually steamed with vegetables. Portions were a bit on the small size too. I guess it's back to Ollie's

This place is the real deal, they use Szechuan peppercorns that make your tongue and lips go numb. The food quality is really good, even though occasionally a little salty. The Sichuan picked cabbage is spicy, sour, crunchy, a fine combination. Try the dried bean curd with garlic shoots--amazing. Desserts are an afterthought, so don't leave space for them.

Made an order on a Friday night for delivery. Food arrived 50 minutes late. We were starving, so we took it (after requesting a discount off our order). The sesame chicken was pretty good. The Tofu dish (Mapo Tofu) was bitter and soggy. The Chong Qing Dry & Spicy Chicken was not tasty. Maybe I am not used to the Sechuan Peppercorns, but there are so many in this dish, that the peppercorn is all that can be tasted. I love spicy food, and the dish is pretty good without the peppercorns... it is as though they are not meant to be eaten. The chili peppers do a fine job of adding spice and flavor. Biting the peppercorns is just bitterness followed by numbness in the mouth... not spicy, just gross. I guess if you love slow deliveries or the Sechuan peppercorn, this place is awesome. I won't be ordering again.

Excellent Chinese food, probably the best in Hell's Kitchen. Been there several times already, although they have only recently opened this location. However, I knew their other places, and food is just as good. Happy to finally have a good Chinese restaurant in the area!

Just checked out this latest addition to the Grand Sichuan chain and thought it was great. Appetizers like xiao long bao and pork belly slices with garlic and chili sauce were excellent, as was the water-cooked beef. The dou miao sauteed vegetables were also excellent--fresh and not too oily. Service was also good, and the restaurant was clean and well-lit. The 23rd and 9th street location of Grand Sichuan is still the best, IMHO, but this is a very good Midtown option for Sichuan fare, and right on Restaurant Row.
