If you are not used to Szechuan you will be surprised after drinking some water. The food is really quite good but I believe they sometimes use too much Szechuan. The service can be described as quirky, in fits and spurts but when the food comes out it is in a torrent.

Came here on the recommendation of a friend, though reviews were mixed online. It is better than your typical American suburban Chinese place, but that isn't saying much. In a bigger city, or in a place with a significant Asian population, this place would be out of business. On the surface it looks decent...an extensive menu, with prices lower than... More

We ordered two dishes which were seriously lacking flavor and was a bit greasy due to too much oil while bring cooked.

The restaurant is in a strip mall off Boston Post Road. If you aren't looking closely you might drive right by. When we went in around 5pm on a Saturday there was only one other family. By 5:20 the entire restaurant was full! We ordered General Tso's Chicken, shrimp fried rice, lo mein and egg rolls. The food came out... More

Excellent food . Basically we ate dishes that were familiar, but they were prepared better than we were acustom to. Double cooked pork beyond my imagination and incredible salt baked shrimp

This place has gotten a fair amount of buzz, which it does not deserve. It's somewhat of a Chinese fast casual theme with decor on a par with Chipotle. The ambiance consists primarily of flatscreen TVs placed throughout the restaurant which...surprise...have nothing on them put a Powerpoint presentation touting the restaurant and its owner. The menus offer names but no... More

Great food and nice restaurant and run by a family. The most impressive thing is that they actually use Szechuan peppers, the ones that make your mouth numb, try the sole fish in szechuan peppers, its $19 but worth it, or for a sample of the mouth numbing pepper have the bamboo appetizer. No other Szechuan restaurant in the area... More
