Great food, authentic. Chef very accommodating. Get the peking duck, when you have a group. I like the dumping in spicy & sweet sauce for appetizers. Crispy chichen awesome. Steamed fish nice. Bring your wine, and make a toast.

Pleasant restaurant with very good menu. I am picky about Chinese food and this place passes the test. Service is good.

I have been coming to this restaurant for over three years. And, they continue to serve tasteful dishes. For small party of 8 to 10, the peking duck is fine. Ask the matradee what is fresh catch of the day. Steamed fish in ginger and scallion sauce is good. Ok, be careful of spicy foods that waiter asks, "are you OK with the hot spice chili peppers? " Start with mild level of spice, then come back and kick it up. I have been thrre, done that...ordering a dish too hot. The amount of red peppers they can add is special for seschuan foods, hot enough for non natives to burn on the first sample taste. So, keep within your limits. Crispy chichen, steamed dumplings, non fried oily dishes, like sautéed eggplant with garlic sauce. Yummy. Bring your own wine, preferably a resling sweet with fish, and malbec with meat, then sit back and enjoy. For some great luck, their services are very relaxed, so you will not be rushed in your visit. And, their bathroom is clean. Careful, lunch M thru F can get busy due to working folks needing to get in and out ...quick. On the flip side, I hope they get to add more vegetable dishes. My dietary restrictions begs for vegetables.

Authentic food with good quality. The owner cares about the food he serves his customer. When I ordered a veggie dish, it tasted and smelled like a veggie dish, unlike that from some other place where the veggie dish had the fishy smell.

I'm an old NYC vet who enjoys the more authentic dishes and especially spicy. China Chalet is far superior to anything in the area, and i've tried them all. More interesting menu choices, good spice and consistent quality.
