Delicious and authentic Sichuan food. The weekday lunch buffet is very reasonable and even though it's not a large buffet the food on it is delicious and they will bring out fresh food when they see something is running low. Very friendly staff. Highly recommend...More

Amazingly authentic spicy Szechuan food. Not overpoweringly spicy but an explosion of flavors nevertheless. Restaurant is nearly 100% packed with Chinese clientele, which tells you it's the real thing. Decor is tired cliched Chinese but like any authentic Chinese restaurant the food takes center stage....More

If you want authentic - this is the restaurant to visit. The food is phenomenal!! Our family goes quite a bit - never had a bad meal. Service can be hit and miss.... but the food is never a miss!!
