I lived in China for 2 years, after coming back to NY I was frustrated with the lack of authentic chinese. This place was the answer! If you want real chinese i can not recommend this more. Enjoy

I really like this place. I brought my parents here in 07 off the back of the great feedback on MenuPages. It did not disappoint. This evening I have been back for seconds. We ordered dumpling appetizers and crispy chicken and beef &mushroom dishes. The food was hot and delicious. We were also given a complimentary pot of jasmine tea which was a very nice touch. One thing to note is that this is not a tourist restaurant, this place will appeal to visitors who want authenticity over predictable tourist menu's and cookie-cutter style service.

i am native taiwanese, so i've been wary of chinese food in NYC. i went to SG for the 1st time for xmas lunch with my friend's family, and the food was phenomenal! i've tried some other places, even flushing, but so far this is a standout. my gracious hosts wouldn't let me pay & i came after orders had been placed so can't comment on the value, but the food is authentic szechuan. we had spicy pork belly, jellyfish salad, spicy szechuan noodles, spicy wontons to start. then we had sauteed bok choy, ma po tofu, braised abalone mushrooms, tea-smoked duck (best i've had in the city! real tea & smoke flavor), braised fish head casserole. will return soon to test the rest of the menu; may become my fav chinese--a first!

I'm a native Chinese and I've been there many times. I have to say the food is very authentic and delicious. They have many local Szechuan dishes you wouldn't find elsewhere in NYC. But I do think the service can be better.

I just loved the dishes I ordered. The szechuan dumplings with that incredible sauce are out of this world! If you like spicy food, they are a must. Everything else was great too! But beware of those szechuan peppercorns as they numb your mouth and nothing tastes good after that. Ask them not to put them in. The value is not bad. The dishes under $13 are very good and two people can eat well for about $30 without drinks (total bill) which is pretty cheap for Manhattan. Love this restaurant and will continue to haunt it along with my other favorite Chinese restaurant on 24th and 9th.

Remarkable, authentic sichuan restaurant, on an otherwise bleak block in mid-town. In the evenings, I am usually the only lao wei in the restaurant, which is a good thing. Must-haves are the chengdu dumplings and fish filet with red pepper. I can't speak highly enough about this restaurant.

The restaurant with very accommodating with customers' requests. They also have a different menu for more exotic food like pig intestines!!! Yikes!!!
