We were looking for a place to eat very late last night near my apartment. Most of other restaurants were closed except for diners. But my wife really wanted some asian food. So we walked into Legend when they were closing. The staff were so nice that they set up the table and served us a great hot meal.

This is the best szechuan food I found in Manhattan! The chef is from my hometown Szechuan. And luckily , he did not change the flavor like most Chinese restaurant do. The taste is really authentic and spicy.Everything I had tonight is good and wonderful. However, if u never tried Szechuan food before, you should start with some cold dish like Red Rabbit or Beef. Then you can try some spicy fish. Forget about General Tso's Chicken and Sesame chicken !!! They are not Chinese food at all. Anyway, I think you'd better ask them for some recommendation if you are not a Szechuanese. Ask them what is the real Szechuan food. Do not forget to get the house special drink. You wont regret!

I live several blocks away and noticed this place has changed their menu. Decided to give it a try. As it turned out they have excellent food and very nice setting for reasonable price (I am a student so I am cost-concious.). Also a big letter "A" is posted on the door so you are assured that they have better hygiene condition than most of other chinese restaurant. They have a large menu for one to explore. I am glad to have one more nice restaurant in the neighborhood.

This was a delivery order, so the atmosphere review above is n/a. Otherwise, this food was just unappetizing. Scallop and beef dishes very tough. Sui Mai crab appetizer quite dry though presentation was attractive. Rice dry too. Asked for fresh mustard but not included in delivery. Phone and delivery personnel very friendly and smart except for forgetting the mustard or even usual condiments such as soy sauce. Original establishment many moons ago was OK and deteriorated from there through the many changes of names and owners. Too bad, as I would greatly appreciate a really good neighborhood Asian restaurant.

This place has great, authentic Sichuan dishes - that have more spice and flavor than the other go-to Sichuan places around the city. Especially now that the quality at the local Grand Szechuan has taken a dive, this should be the go-to place for anyone in Chelsea looking for great Chinese. The dry spicy chicken, served with peanuts, is the best fried chicken dish I've had in the city. It doesn't hold up as well for delivery, though. Sweet potato noodles are great too.

I eat a lot of Sichuan food, all over Manhattan and Queens, but this place actually has some stuff I've never seen before. Try the Chengdu Style Fish Filets and the Spicy Chicken with Ginger and Peanut for dishes that I haven't seen anywhere else. Definitely a solid new contender, with the added bonus that Happy Hour is absurdly long (4-9) and covers pretty much every drink on the menu.
