If you are looking for standard (american style) chinese food, go elsewhere. However, if you order from the New Sichuan section of the menu, and are ready for really wonderful, true sichuan peppercorn flavored food, this is the best. It's hot, spicy, tongue-numbing and amazing.

I tried to order delivery from them and got rejected -- even though it was 1/2 hour before their closing time and I live only 10 blocks away. They say 10 blocks are too far. What kind of delivery service is that? Will never order from them again.

This is hands down the best Chinese food I've had in NYC. The dumplings are fantastic and I highly recommend the Chong Qing fish. Can't wait to go back and try even more of their extensive menu. The only drawback is that the service is very slow. At least it was on Sunday afternoon.

I went there for lunch with my 16 month old and struggled to get the pram up to the restaurant door...and was told vehemently to get out even before I could grab my breath. I have never been so shocked...especially as it was extremely cold outside and i was to meet friends. The woman didn't give me a chance to open my mouth!

The key is to order the true Szechuan dishes. If you don't like Szechuan cuisine, don't bother. Not that I haven't enjoyed some of the American Chinese when I'm in the mood, but the spicey fish dishes are as good as you can get anywhere in Chinatown or Flushings. An oasis on the east side.

I used to eat here all the time with my boyfriend, but ever since they significantly raised prices ($3+ on many dishes!), we just haven't been able to stomach it. My old favorite was the pumpkin soup. I'll grant that it's a lot of soup (enough for 2 or more people), but it used to be $5 and now it's $8! The Sichuan dishes are very good and authentic, but I've been unimpressed by the American dishes. The vegetables are not fresh, and in all of our dishes, we've sometimes experienced extremely poor, fatty cuts of meat. If I'm going to pay $18 for a standard chinese chicken dish, I expect good quality meat! That aside, we do miss some of our old favorites.

This is the best Chinese restaurant in New York city. I absolutely love the food. There is nothing but authenticity and deliciousness! Though it might not have the best looking decors and whatnot, the food is phenomenal. If you are looking for some real Chinese food (Sichuan food), this is the place.
