    Did not like the tan tan mien - oddly bitter tasting. The chow mein was oily but good

    Pretty good Szechuan. We had spicy crab (so-so), fish fillet with tofu and pickled greens (which was nice) and pea sprouts with chili (nice). We'd go back, but it's not worth the 45 min line.

    Tan tan noodles have that numbing spiciness. Pancakes are great too

    Authentic tasty large portions - all the food I had here was great. Felt the spice was dulled down a bit - worth noting for next time. Prepare to queue, worth it.

    The most authentic Chinese food in the US! Make sure to order 沸腾鱼- a spicy yet very flavorful fish dish, dry sautéed string beans, 辣子鸡,a spicy chicken dish diced, crispy, delicious.

    The explosive chicken is a showstopper presented atop a terrifying pile of chili. However, the heat isn't overwhelming and the chicken is flavorful. Just reserve a table ahead of time. Read more

    For the love of God, do not order a general tso's chicken when you can get all that Sichuan goodness.

    The wait was not bad, but have your party members with you. The chow mein was quite tasty along with the cashew chicken and the eggplant w/ garlic though it was very spicy.

    Food is good but not exceptional. Spicy but not too much. Maybe worth 30 minutes of wait max.

    Sadly just had the worst service ever and I've been here many times. Bad enough to revise my tip. It took TWO hours to have lunch! Seated people before us. Brought a Top Chef crew member to try. Bad!
