This is a bit of real Chinese food in the burgh. In Squirrel Hill and easy to get to. Parking not bad as well. I've been told to NOT order from the English menu (the one without pictures). Everything we ordered was great. Just beware,...More

The food is traditional szechuan and tastes delicious. However, the environment is nothing especial:very simple and kind of old. The waiters are nice, but service can be slow on weekends.

Visited for lunch, traveling from the North Hills of the ‘Burgh. Just a few english-speaking customers, so this was a good sign. Place was simply decorated and a bit warn, but don’t let that sway your decision. Menus are extensive - for the novice Chinese...More

What can I say? I am impressed! This place is pretty authentic! There is an American menu where you can get your lobster sauce or you can get the real Chinese menu. Be brave and get the Chinese menu! The braised pork shoulder is delicious!...More

The food at Chengdu is consistently excellent. The vegetables are fresh and you can get authentic Chinese dishes that you don't find as most of the Chinese restaurants in town. Highly recommended for both eat in and take out.
