    Look past the weird strip mall location and ignore the deserted environs to eat your way through dumplings in hot red oil, slippery numbing noodles and a Sichuan-style dim sum feast. [Eater 38 Member]

    The Chinese Szechuan food at Gu's Bistro has developed a heavy following amongst Atlanta's food enthusiasts. Try the tea-smoked duck and the dry eggplant. [Eater 38 Member]

    The Chengdu won tons are best when the thin skins are pierced so some of the liquid can permeate the ground pork interior. Dan dan noodles are worth the visit alone.

    If you're not a fan of a lot of peppercorn in your food ... Do not come here. My first and last visit ... I couldn't taste the dish because the taste of peppercorn and its tongue numbing sensation :(

    Focusing on Szechuan specialties cooked with a delicate hand (cumin lamb, tea-smoked duck, dry-fried eggplant), Gu's setting may look inauspicious at first, but once inside it's warm and welcoming. Read more
