First time visiting in many years since college in the 1980s, and better than I remembered. Fantastic chinese food, attentive service at reasonable prices. Busy area with little parking but I suspect most customers walk and take the T. Will return when in this area.

I came here for a birthday lunch with my girlfriend, and we were both very impressed with the food here! Authentic Szechuan cooking is difficult to find in the United States, so we will definitely be back here. We ordered the minced pork with cellophane...More

Genuine Sichuan cooking is hard to find. The Sichuan Gourmet presents a decent effort but is not consistent. Since we live nearby we eat there often. Service is brusque but efficient. Dishes are good size and the spice level varies light to moderate but never...More
