    The best Chinese in its price range

    The GS restaurants are great, and this one may be the best of the lot. Every dish we've had there has been consistently great -- and we eat there weekly. Standouts include Crab Meat and Pork Soup Dumpling, Dan Dan Noodles, Sichuan Wonton w. Red Oil, Duck w. String Bean, Dry & Sauteed String Beans, Shredded Beef w. Red & Green Pepper, and Smoked Tea Duck. The Crispy Whole Fish is a revelation; the sauce is what the generic sweet brown sauce at low-end takeout places *should* taste like. Unlike most of the other Chinese restaurants north of Chinatown, this branch in particular is often full of Chinese patrons. Which brings me to the chief complaint: the place is usually full! Also, the seating arrangements seem designed to minimize the number of "good" seats. The atmosphere -- what there is, anyway -- is OK, the service decent but not exceptional. But you won't be returning for the atmosphere anyway, will you? You'll keep coming back because it's the best place in its price range, and you'll have to spend at least triple on a dinner elsewhere to have Szechuan or Hunan this good, end even then you'll be lucky if it's consistent as it is here.

    Careful. if u start, you'll never stop

    I get a craving for this place at least once a weak. I get hunger pangs just thinking about the gui zhou spicy chicken, braised sliced beef w/brown sauce, dry and sauteed string beans w/beef, or hunan beef. Those are definitely must haves. The servers are friendly and eager to please, and you can't beat the value. As mentioned before, don't go here if you're looking for american-chinese food. I'm sure those dishes are good, but why have regular old general tso's when you can have some phenomenal authentic sichuan and hunan dishes? Only con - it has ruined me for all other chinese takeout. I simply can't go back.

    Authentic and spicy!

    Definitely the most authentic and spicy chinese food in the city. Great small chain overall, and this one looks better than the others in Manhattan. Anywhere that specifically differentiates a side of the menu called "American Chinese Food" has just got to be good! Ha!

    By far the best in NYC

    The GS chain is phenomenal, and this one may be the best of the lot. If you keep to the "authentic" sections of the menu, you will have the best Szechuan food available in New York. No other restaurant comes close.

    Best of the GS Empire

    After eating at the Chelsea GS for a few years, we just recently discovered this locale & are devout converts! The food, service & atmosphere are all superior. the dining room full of Mandarin speakers attest to its authenticity. Things to get: cucumber salad, five-spice beef, dry-fried string beans, red-cooked fish, beef w/ dry bean curd, guizhou chicken, loofah, stir fried potatoes, water-boiled beef. Enjoy!

    Delivery All the Time

    Ok, so I order take out from this place about once a week. It is addictive. The food is so good and authentic. Take it from one Asian, do NOT eat at any Asian cusine restaurant if there are NOT real Asians eating there. It is a HUGE sign. Maybe you think I am being funny, but it is a cultural thing and rings true every time. Happy ordering.
