    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

    Chongqing chicken: The copious chilies telegraph the intense heat in this fantastic heap of fried chicken nuggets. It’ll burn but hurt so good you won’t be able to stop. Read more

    came here twice in one weekend for the chengdu cold noodle dish and the cumin string beans w/dried chili peppers - delicious! spicy dried eggplant has good flavor but way too oily.

    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 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.
