We often go to Chengdu before NY Giants games and have been frequenting this restaurant on and off for 15 years. I read the negative reviews and it seems there was a period with changes to chef and food. We've been a couple of times recently (including last night) and to us, it hasn't changed. We ordered steamed dumplings in... More

The last few times we went to Chengdu 46, we noticed it was not the same, but we gave it another chance, and were very pleasantly surprised. The Peking Duck was outstanding, as well as the Shrimp Duet, which we both had for dinner. The service was first class. All around we were very pleased.

Have been going to this restaurant for years but went in September and have to ask why change something that is excellent?

We cannot emphasize enough how disappointed we are in this restaurant. We have been customers since the restaurant opened, always looking forward to going back. Not anymore, there are many empty tables. We used to wait for a table, but now you can walk right in. We will not go back unless we find there is some indication that they... More

This has always been a great restaurant but our last experience was disappointing. Too bad. The green beans, which were always crispy and tasteful, were soggy and overdone.The other dishes were not up to their usual standards either. I will wait until I hear good reports before we go back.

Each time I come here the staff and service is always consistent. The food is always very good and the staff are always attentive. I will come back here over and over again. It's that good.

The old chefs and management are back!! The 5 weeks with the "new team" didn't work out - during that time the food went downhill. Now that the old team is back the quality of food is once again exceptional.

It used to be very special, but last couple of times it was missing a bit. I don't know if they have a new chef or what. It's still better than anything else around though
