I had lunch at the Sichuan Pavilion yesterday with a friend. The best Sichuan cuisine I have had in years. Friendly staff, fast service, brilliant food. Make sure you arrive before the lunch crowd (we arrived at 1130); there is a line--which is always a good sign. Highest recommendation!

4 of us visited this restaurant, mini business/casual meeting. We ordered the Kung pao lamb, shredded pork, lamb in beef stew and noodles and stir fried noodles. The food was so good, a bit salty but still tasty. A bit on the high side but totally worth it! I would definitely be going back there.

Freshly cooked food. The pan noodles could have been better cooked, but the sauce was tasty. Squid kung pao was really good! The pearl in the sweet rice soup was also very good. Prices very reasonable for the area

After a long day sightseeing, considered ordering a take out, with the option of visiting the restaurant if they did not deliver to our location. Person who answered phone could not understand my question " Do you deliver to xxxxx street?" so another person came on the phone and when I asked again, said "No, we don't" and put the... More

Living in FL means horrible Chinese food. I seek it out on all my business trips. I found this jewel a while ago but my visit last night makes me want to write about it. Went with some colleagues and ordered a ton of food. But, I am writing specifically about their pork with pickled cabbage. I am the one... More

We found this restaurant quite late one evening. They were closing early but found us a table. The food was absolutely delicious and the portions were huge. The Chinese tea made a welcome change The staff were so friendly and keen to ensure we enjoyed our meal

Had an early lunch with my sister. My sister opted off the soup, I had the corn soup. The service was fast, initially we were not sure if we would manage to finish the portion. The chicken was so crispy and moderately spicy. Great flavors with the prawns. Loved it.
