    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.

    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.

    Get away from the gallery crowd at this unpretentious Chinese restaurant known for their soup dumplings and extensive menu of both authentic Sichuan and Americanized chinese dishes. Read more

    Skip the obviously Americanized offerings and head straight for strips of double-cooked pork sautéed with salty bean paste and the bizarre and wonderful sour string beans with minced pork. Read more

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I would order these again: Salt and pepper shrimp, dry-fried green beans with pork, Aui Zhou chicken.

    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.

    Musts: string bean with minced pork, soup dumplings as echoed below, whole braised fish with hot bean sauce (doh ban yu). Just OK: double cooked pork belly, mapo tofu (too oily). Saw drew barrymore a

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

    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

    Excellent soup dumplings. And the recommendations for the Au Zhou Chicken are spot on, it's great

    Incredible Chinese food especially the soup dumplings. Service on the other hand is horrendous but it's worth it because of the quality of food.

    Best dan dan noodles in the city. Soup dumplings are okay. Don't forget to order the Ai Zhou spicy chicken.

    It's all about The Aui Zhou Chicken. Soup dumplings are good as is the spicy salt squid.

    Very good food. Try the eggplant with green peppers. Be prepared to wait at least 20 minutes for a table, but well worth it.

    Everyone comes for the soup dumplings, but if you like a little heat, try the dumplings in red oil. Spicy little dollops of perfection.

    One of the very few Chinese restos that I eat at. Soup dumplings are awesome, traditional sesame/tso chicken is great along with the slew of Sichuan dishes

    As usual, great food, good prices, with service that veers between surly and uninterested.

    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

    Good food, but all employees stop at 3pm to have their own lunch. Around 15 people in the restaurant tables. Never seen this before

    Soup dumplings and dumplings in red oil are a must! Get one order per person for the dumplings in red oil because you won't want to share.

    Get the cold sichuan noodles (order it spicy, even though it's not that spicy) and get tea smoked duck (awesome)

    Food was very good, nice spice levels for us (spicy but not scorching hot). Service was rude except when they ignored us.

    Definitely wouldnt recommend this. The food was OK, but the dishes all tasted the same. The service was terrible - they urged us to finish our meals and forced us to pay more tips, which was absurd.

    Dine in the restaurant for the best Chinese in Manhattan. The takeout/delivery - not nearly as tasty but ok for soup and noodles.

    Soup dumplings. Drive from BOS some days just to get them. Best ever. Red braised pork with chestnut good too, as is duck w/ bitter melon.

    Super disappointing. The cooks must have changed. Nothing had flavor. Had to add salt. At a Chinese restaurant! Ordered cumin beef and wondered where beef was under all the batter. Will not return.
