The food was awesome and good value for money (portions are huge) -I think it is one of the best chinese restaurant ever outside of Asia. Staffs are friendly too.

Lunch today was outstanding. It was a holiday celebration among 15 working associates who are also good friends. And, we did it at the very best Sichuan Restaurant in the Washington, DC area. The food is the most important part of the experience, and we had plenty of it. We started with a Cold Tendon and Tripe Appetizer. This was... More

We stumbled on this great restaurant and other patrons at the door recommended it. We were greeted with yummy and warming hot tea (perfect for the cold night). There were many choices on the menu for food and drink. We ordered from the authentic items and chef specials. The service was perfect and the food was quite good.

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.

My friend and I went to Sichuan Pavillon for lunch. There were 2 ladies waiting for a table and we should have gone next. while we were waiting, 3 men were seated and we thought we were next. Two Chinese boys walked in and they were supposed to be seated after us. We do not know what they told the... More

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
