    has become my go to spot for sichuan food. Menu is massive - order dan dan noodles, glutinous rice balls, wonton in red oil, ma po tofu is sick, also all chicken and pork dishes from sichuan region.

    Best Szechuan I've ever had! Absolutely in love! Came with a big group, sat downstairs round table with lazy Susan. So much fun! Dan-Dan noodles and the soup noodles with braised need are sublime!

    The BEST Chinese food I've had in NYC, which says a lot because there's a LOT of Chinese food in the city. Den den noodles, duck, fish/pickled veggie soup, mapo tofu, chili prawns, shrimp dumplings.

    The chef here, Ding Gen Wang, is something of a star in his native China. Although everything here is very good, the best dishes are off-the-menu. [Eater 38 Member]

    If you don't know what you want to get, just order their Chengdu Fish and Pickled Vegetable. The portion is big enough for at least 3-4 people and it is made in the most authentic Chengdu style!

    I got Chongqing chicken and it was pretty good like everyone said except it has a strong peppercorn after taste that says in your tongue and changes your tastebuds. Too much peppers also.

    The shrimp dumplings were excellent. Szechuan cucumbers pretty tasty and crunchy. Scallion pancakes lacked flavor. Food was very fast!

    One of my favorite restaurants right now. Make sure to order from the Sichuan part of the menu! The other dishes are probably be fine but you're missing out on the magic.

    Pork dumplings in chili oil are a must. Ginger scallion lo mein is good but it's not the best thing on the menu. Very nice staff.

    Dan dan noodles are fantastic. Their fuqifeipian is great but could be sliced thinner! Top quality food though, definitely visiting again.

    Parties of two have to do a "hot pot prix fixe" with a choice of beef or lamb. The cost is $43.95 for two. The pot arrives with both the meat and broth already inside.

    Soup dumpling are great. General Tso’s Chicken is the best I’ve had anywhere. Cocktails leave a lot to be desired, though.

    I recommend the Sichuan spicy boiled fish stew--a traditional Sichuanese dish and one of their signature menu items. Oh and just as a heads up, you're not supposed to eat the chili peppers, haha. Read more

    Skip the Americanized stuff for great Sichuan like juicy Chongqing chicken and crackly fried eggplant.

    The fried crispy prawns are so delicious. Spicy and the fried chilies aren't spicy, more like a spicy chip. :-)

    Don't get any pig intestine dish, it's kinda chewy. Do get the traditional dish and little juicy pork buns.
