Curious if the other reviewers were on crack or just not human..perhaps just out-dated. Was excited to get some real Szechuan food bc cant fine any near our home on LI. Went bc of the good reviews and the area. 1st problem was the B rating on the way in..that should have tipped us off. We sat anyway. The appetizers were mostly disgusting. Inedible, dry and bony spare ribs. Sesame noodles high on salt and NO peanut taste. Costo-similar Veggie spring rolls. Dumplings were edible, but barely. After appies, wanted to play it safe with the main courses, so went with chicken and broccoli and Moo Shoo Pork. Sauces were good, broccoli was good; chicken was disgusting; thin, rubbery and completely inedible. Moo Shoo Pork the same, but I ate it anyway. I swear, I almost threw up on 2nd Avenue. To cap off the worst Chinese meal of our lives, they refused to take off the ribs from the check, even though we sent it back. Chef came out and, through an interpreter, said "we ate 2 of them". The mention of "Yelp" meant nothing to them. if they are not out of business in a year, I'll eat my General Tsao's Chicken Hat.

Just received my order and I think it is the best Chinese on the UES. Highly recommend it.

I agree with other reviewers that this is the best Chinese food on the Upper East Side. Over-the-phone customer service was excellent, and I got my order in less than 20 minutes, exactly as requested. I ordered Vegetable Chow Fun, Spicy Garlic Eggplant, and Braised Beef with Chili and Napa Cabbage, and all were excellent.

This is by far my fav Chinese on the UES. It took 65 min for delivery but it was worth the wait. We're never ordering from anywhere else. Try the tripe under "Delicacies." It's fantastic!!!

A change from the local Chinese joints - interesting flavors, genuine spice, and unusual offerings you don't see everywhere. Even the standard dishes (e.g. shrimp fried rice) have a Szechuan flair that you'll remember. The 2nd avenue construction creates a distraction, but Szechuan Gourmet is worth a visit if you're in the mood for good food.

I love Szechuan Gourmet on 2nd ave between 72 & 73 best. The taste is better and less salty.
