    Made fresh daily, Chili House's dumplings are a welcome reprieve from the numbing spices of the Sichuan fare. Choose from xiao long bao, shumai, pot stickers, and more. Read more

    Everything is pretty good!! Very authentic. Try spicy crispy chicken. It's a must! Those who can't eat spicy dishes please be careful. Sichuan style is spicy in nature.

    Order the Pan fried noodles, prawns with walnuts and the Szechuan Chili Pepper with pork. Prawns are large and the coating crunchy. You can request to make the Szechuan dish to be medium or mild.

    Mapo tofu was on point. Cumin lamb was tasty but could have used more lamb. Pork dumplings were great. Excellent meal plus entertaining tea pouring acrobatics.

    Beef pancake has hoisin inside so it's a little sweet. I like it

    Explosive chili peppers with chicken is great. Rather than chopped wings, they use boned chicken. Had a garlic encrusted crab. Delightful and fresh. Szechuan green beans were fresh. Not overly hot.

    My new favorite is the wonton with spicy peanut sauce. Get this and the house cold noodle for sure!

    If you like chicken with explosive chilies, try out the hot and spicy pork trotter.

    Pan fried leek turnovers are amazing pockets of crispy and molten tastiness with leek, egg and noodles inside. Love the numbing spicy beef tendon, too!

    Pretty authentic. The shuizhuyu (signature spicy fish) was excellent, tender and spicy but not overwhelming. Had to wait about 15 mins for party of two on Saturday at 7.

    The dong po pork is giant slabs of saucy, spicy pork belly. Must order this and cold noodles!

    It's the same owner who owns Z&Y. Food is great for sure, a little bit pricy.

    Pretty authentic. The fish was delicious, but I can't say if it was more delicious than the other szechuan places on my radar

    Best Peking Duck in San Francisco! The Beijing-style dim sum is different, and really good too!

    Not very impressed. They're trying but it's nowhere near the taste and quality of Sichuan Home on Geary.
