    Perfect Neighborhood Chinese

    Everyone needs a great go to Chinese place for an easy/cheap dinner. Grand Sichuan is definitely the place to go in Chelsea, one of our favorite neighborhood spots we've tried since moving here. I agree with the previous reviews that the service is a little slow/poor but I don't really have high expectations when going out for cheap chinese. We've ordered delivery, not as good, but its got a nice nostalgic chinese restaurant atmosphere, so we enjoy going anyway. Try Dan Dan Noodles, Sichaun Wontons (On par with Spicy and Tasty in Flushing), Pork Soup Dumplings, and although fans of authentic Chinese food will shudder- General Tso's chicken, they have a really great version here. Even my finicky girlfriend who usually just picks at food when I drag her out to Sripraphai for Thai and Flushing for Chinese loves the food here.

    good food subpar service

    Great food in a laid back restaurant. Always busy so expect to wait. Worst part is the service. They could care less and if you left they would not care.

    Great Food! Poor service

    The food here is GREAT! Quite authentic especially the spicy dishes considering I've had Sichuan food in China before. Its slightly on the oily side, but its Chinese so love it or hate it. The only drawback its the service. They are not attentive, I've to fight for my attention to get rice or water all the time. But considering it is cheap for the quality of food. I will always go back because you you can't find this quality of food in Chinatown.

    best in city

    They are very busy. Never expect a table just walking in during dinner hrs and they have a reservation number limit - I think five and above. Order take out from someplace else if you want stupid faux Chinese food. Eat food there that has odd names on the menu and you will be in heaven - the complainers get what they deserve - shrimp and Broc from here is a waste of time - go to another place and practice yelling "give'me shrimp(s) and white rice , and no vegetables Chino. And make it fast. I'll be back."

    Know before you go

    This is basically Chinatown in Chelsea, so forget about the service...that's just part of the deal. I find it almost amusing, even liberating, at how bad it is. The food, however, is excellent and authentic...if you know how to order. Ordering General Tso's Chicken and Sesame Shrimp here is kind of like ordering a Tex-Mex burrito and Chimichanga at a Mexican-Oaxacan place that's famous for it's Pozole and Moles. So...suck it up, don't be so sensitive, and order like a person who travels, but never goes on "vacation." Enjoy.

    Do not order

    I just got my food and I took 2 bites and threw it out. I ordered the chicken in garlic sauce and it was overly greasy and not tasty at all. So disappointed. I had heard of this spot and wanted to try it- well, at least I know not to order from here again. Oh well. On to the next Chinese food place in Chelsea...

    Absolutely Disgusting

    Having just moved to west Chelsea, I randomly chose this restaurant based on the decent reviews and close proximity to my apartment. WORST decision I ever made. The food was basically inedible. General Tso's chicken consisted of fried MSG and salt with a tiny piece of psuedo-chicken within it (even though I requested white meat). Shrimp dumplings came in a soup-y cup with greasy sauce and all 8 dumplings were attached to each other in a blob. I have never been so grossed out by a chinese food order, and I am by no means an expert in chinese food. Do yourself a favor and NEVER go here.
