Sichuan Pavilion stands up to true Sichuan cooking. I had the crispy duck which was excellent and the pork stew was also very good. I would like to return with a larger group to be able to try more dishes

I had the jumbo shrimp in hot garlic sauce and LOVED it. My husband's orange chicken was over done. Our server was fine but the food runner was really rude more than once. It made for not such a great time.

I have been seeking a good Chinese food location for my biz trips to DC and when I’m not near Chinatown This place exceeds expectations. The food was excellent, and the wait staff was terrific. I will definitely return.

Finally a restaurant that uses sichuan peppers in its food. We started with soup that was great. We ordered Ma po Tofu and sichuan greenbeans, both were outstanding and had sichuan peppers in them, which has not been the case for at least a few...More

According to their Yelp page, they're open 11:00 am - 10:00 pm on weekdays. Not sure how accurate that is, so I would just call them if I were you.
