I had a party and ordered several dishes. Here is a review of a few. Ordered the spicy cucumber appetizer and wondered if it would be as good as the amazing dish I had from Xi'an (multiple locations). When I bit in, the contrast (cool cukes! hot chili!) was missing. Then, I realized it was green squash, not cucumbers. No wonder the oil was more absorbed, heavier, and not as memorable as the Xi'an version What was sent was passable, but I wanted memorable, and was annoyed. Deliver what was ordered! Then, I tried Szechuan Pork Dumpling with Roasted Chili Vinaigrette, hoping for a juicy dumpling and a fiery sauce. They were a little chalky, and the filling was like a fatty mass, and the sauce was not very hot. Hmmm, not worth it at least this time. Finally, I had the Flavorful Spicy And Aromatic Prawns which were served in a sea of chili peppers, and a few celery stalks cut down, and while tasty, was not overly generous in portion, or spicy. The food was delivered by a cranky person who yelled "delivery!!" behind the door, but I know that is a tough job so I don't hold that against them. Well, maybe a little, let's say that does not make a good impression. I am a little torn, but overall, think I will try elsewhere. (Thought they get points for being more authentic than many Chinese spots in the area.)

Can't be touched. The chicken and broccoli takes Chinese food to the next level. The dumps have grown on me over the past 2 years. They've realy increased the meat:dough ratio. Oh and the cold seasome noodles.... Forget about it.

I went here a month ago and the taste was so salty, not good.

Mapo Tofu is in the business of making sure you get your food and get out of there. But it is always packed. The food is delicious, fresh, and attractively plated. If you know your order immediately, it will save you being briskly asked every 10 seconds for it. And don't bother asking about the schezuan pickled vegetables--the menu claims they come with your lunch, but it's lying.

Unbelievable, extremely reasonable food. Really fast service, though the place was not crowded. Atmosphere a little sterile, but fine really, and this isn't nearly as important to me as the quality and value. Go.
