    Spicy cumin lamb, and double cooked pork belly, and the spicy cellophane noodles, and the dan Dan noodles and everything on the goddamn menu

    Scallion pancakes and pork dumplings are very tasty. Service is mediocre.

    Dan Dan noodles will make your mouth feel tingly and numb IN A GOOD WAY

  • Alex R.

    One of the best Sichuan restaurants in the city. Cold sesame noodles, Dan Dan noodles, cumin lamb, wok tossed chicken and chiles, double cooked pork... All excellent.

    2 legit 2 quit ordering their Mapo tofu (best I've had outside China), Dan Dan Noodles & crispy Lamb. If you like Szechuan peppercorns, you're in for a treat.

  • Honghui Y.

    Decent Szechuan food to be had here, but prices are not competitive with the dirty cheap grub you can get in Chinatown.

  • What's Good Here

    The mapo tofu here is delicious. Spicy and flavorful without a lingering heat.

  • Brittany G.

    The service leaves something to be desired, but the food is delicious.

  • Steven G.

    The mapo tofu is very authentic, similar to what I had when I visited Sichuan province in China.

    The chili sauce that came on my pork dumplings was amazing. Best Chinese food (chicken and broccoli specifically) I've ever had, and I've tried that EVERYWHERE.

    Their choices are awesome. I will definitely comeback to try some meat dishes.

    Ask for (and I probably spelled it wrong but sound it out) La tsu tzee - it's a spicy chicken dish not on the menu and it's phenomenal.

    Seth Baron · March 25
  • M R.

    Dumplings. Sautéed bean sprouts, yum

  • Francisco A.

    A simple place, not fancy nor sophisticated but the food is good and this is what matters.

    Francisco AB · March 2
  • Divya M.

    The food is average. Food is super oily! I would rather eat Thai.

    Strange place - not at all fancy (to be kind), not particularly warm or attentive service, but good food.

  • Amir Z.

    Cumin lamb is super dry, go for the chicken egg plant, spicy sesame noodle and pork dumplings

    Amir Zonozi · November 7, 2014
  • Mike M.

    Awesome Chinese. I've seen this place included in lots of lists of underappreciated NYC restaurants. Never fails to be great.

    Mike McDonough · November 1, 2014
  • Garett P.

    Braised lamb but ask for extra spicy sauce on the side! Bring the heat.

    Garett Press · October 21, 2014

    Very good lunch menu, many many options, inexpensive but great taste

    Ask for this mouth-watering off-menu dish: wok-tossed chicken with chilies. Read more

    Their specialty dish is the Crispy Lamb Filets with Cumin but diners give equal praise to the Spicy Sesame Noodles and Chef's Ma Paul Tofu. Read more

    Beef chow fun, cumin lamb, eggplant

    Still a hit or miss place but can be pretty good. Saw that they had steamed juicy pork buns. Was a little iffy about ordering them from a szechuan place... they came out frozen on the inside.

    Ron Hsu · September 19, 2014
  • Fuat Ş.

    Amazing dishes the general tso chicken was amazing. The soups perfect . Fast service but old decoration. The porsions very big watch out to over eating. Was the best in my NY chinese foods

    Wok-tossed chicken with chilies- Nubs of poultry get pan fried until crispy, tossed with blistered red chili peppers, & then doused in oil imbued with the mouth-numbing heat of Szechuan peppercorns. Read more

    Usually easiest to get a table at lunch between 11:30 & 12. If you're solo, they might stick you close to other people. Works for me!

    Nice fish!

    You need your real Szechuan food cherry popped here.

    I cannot say enough good things about the Cumin lamb. I have had dreams about it. I have cravings for it. Completely unique.

  • Vic C.

    Best Szechuan take out

    Vic C. · August 7, 2014
  • Raven T.

    Spicy cold noodles (the best I've had in the city) + one entree was enough for 2 hungry people! There was still food leftover. Pretty awesome for a place on this part of Midtown.

    Raven T · August 7, 2014

    Double cooked pork belly with leeks annotate denied.

    Brandon · August 7, 2014
  • Lauren

    Dan Dan Noodles are A+. Chili Cumin Lamb is top-notch. I found the Double-Cooked Pork Belly to be boring, but I would vote the Spicy Garlic Baby Eggplant for President. 👌
