    Come with a big group and share everything: soup dumplings, Dan Dan noodles, crispy orange beef, and deep dark secrets.

    Get the Aui Zhou Spicy Chicken spicy and crispy from the "fresh chicken" menu (C6). Best thing I've eaten at a Chinese restaurant in years, if not ever. Pork scallion dumplings are a great choice too.

    my favorite au Zhou chicken, this time the "fresh" option. Chicken is more juicy and definitely fresher tasting!

    Unassuming Sichuan restaurant that is an awesome place for groups to share family style eating – and they serve some of the BEST soup dumplings in the city.

    I come here for the bánh xèo, which is not served at all Vietnamese restaurants. An order of summer rolls and ice coffee (brewed at table, served with condensed milk) makes a great lunch.

    This is my neighborhhood, no frills, Chinese delivery/takeout of choice. Soup dumplings, dumplings in chili oil, wonton soup, salt and pepper shrimp...all good choices.

    Good value for spicy Chinese food. Recommend: fish fillets in chili sauce, Chinese broccoli & fresh garlic, and clams with black bean sauce. Get something cold to drink.

    Lunch here is under 10 dollars that includes soup or salad, rice or noodles, and main entree. It is really good and does not include any aftertaste.

    Also, there is a $7 minimum per person. I've never heard of that before! You should easily meet that but if you're planning on splitting you may not. the waitresses also rush you.

    They start closing around 10.30 and you will have five pairs of eyes like daggers on you as they try to make you leave. Great food just watch out for this.

    Food's very good. Service is abysmal, though. Know that going in. Up to you to decide if you want to take your business to any number of other quality and respectable Chinese places in the city.

    If you can't take the heat, best take the taste buds elsewhere. If you can, the Chong Qing Chicken is about as spicy and authentic as Sichuan cuisine gets. Read more

    perfect for later lunch/early dinner. The pickled cabbage appetizer, sichuan noodles, potatoes in vinegar and family style bean curd all rock!

    Go to Grand Sichuan and start with soup dumplings then move to the roast duck. They smoke it first and it has the most amazing flavor.

    The pork soup dumplings taste great but overpriced when compared to similar spots. Actually, most of the menu is overpriced. For that just head down to nearby Chinatown and go to Joe Shanghai's
