As authentic as it gets in Indy

I've been going to Sichuan since 2005 when I moved to Indy, and coming from the west coast where good ethnic food is a given, I found Sichuan to be exactly what the owner made it out to be: home style sichuan food, authentic, and spicy. Lunch buffet is an excellent deal, and provides plenty of... read more

If you want outstanding and authentic Chinese food in Carmel, this is your place. The inside is a little rundown, but the owners are friendly and you get used to it!

If you are looking for good Chinese food, ry this restaurant. As a former New Yorker, I am always searching for good food restaurants in the Indianapolis area. This one qualifies as good Chinese food. Even the local Asian population eats here. Buffet is smaller than the usual "China Buffet" offering, but that's because this is real Chinese food. Went...

Prior to trying this restaurant, I noted that previous reviewers did not recommend it based on its decor. Having said that, the buffet that was in operation at lunch time looked disgusting. It was a hot summer day and the temperature inside must have exceeded 85 degrees. The buffet with its inadequate sneeze shield had the various menu offerings spilled... More

The best Chinese restaurant I've eaten at in Carmel. I get take out from this restaurant. The orders have always been made quickly and accurately. The interior is a bit dated.

If you want ambience, go somewhere else. If you want great, authentic (as authentic as a place in Indiana can be), inexpensive Chinese food, go to Sichuan. The first clue that Sichuan has good, authentic Chinese food is the high ratio of Chinese:Non-Chinese of its patrons. The lunch buffet is very good with foods you don't usually find in Chinese...

We came here an International Supper Club, and boy oh boy what a crowd we had! There were probably more than 30 of us, taking up more than half the restaurant, and thanks to our awesome Supper Club coordinator, they made us wonderful family style meals. The highlights for me, a vegetarian, were the mapo tofu, the bok choy, the... More

Ask any Chinese person in town and they will tell you Sichuan is the best. Weekday lunch buffet is only $6.50 including drink and tax. Weekend is more expensive but more traditional dishes. I love the dry stir fried shredded beef. I has jalopios, Sichuan pepper corns, and dried chilies.

Skip the normal menu that has all of the same dishes as every other Chinese restaurant. Stick with the authentic Chinese menu. You can be as daring as you wish. From pork tenderloin to pork stomach, jelly fish, or rabbit. The hot pot is also very good. Not on either menu.
