Not your typical American Chinese Restaurant

The dishs have nice heat and great flavours. It is pretty close to authentic food, they still modify it a bit for the American palette. I had the Dry Chicken and chili it was great, the chicken had great flavours. But, the dish could have used another handful of chilis in it.

This is a more traditional Chinese restaurant. They serve tea with every meal. The dishes are prepared in a more traditional way most they say are "family style". The options are still Americanized but there is a good selection. Get there early as seats go fast and there aren't a ton of them.

Everyone I've convinced to try the Szechuan items loves this place. The other items are meh. It is very busy at noon so try to avoid 12-1. There are not many seats in this restaurant.

This is a tiny restaurant, but the flavor and heat in the food is huge. Judging from most of the clientele in the restaurant, this is authentic Sichuan food. Love it.

This isn't a generic Chinese restaurant; it's food from a particular region, with most dishes using hot oil or peppers. Some of the dishes you might expect aren't available. The tastes are sour as well as or instead of sweet. It's not just one-note 'hot' -- there's a lot of flavor there besides the hotness. My favorites are the fish... More

This place never disappoints. Our favorite place to go for chinese, especially if you like very spicy food. The restaurant is always busy on Friday and Saturday nights so be prepared to wait. It's worth it though..

In the 1980s I used to eat frequently at a restaurant in Cambridge that was owned by someone who grew up in China's Sichuan province. I have been searching ever since for Sichuan food that approaches those standards. Luckily, the search is over! I was introduced to Sichuan Gourmet by a friend who provided a large variety of dishes via... More

I take my Chinese food very seriously and don't waste my time in Chinese restaurants that do not serve authentic Chinese food. Sichuan Gourmet is at the top of my list. I recently vacationed in China and couldn't wait to taste the food in Sichuan province. It was fabulous, as expected, but it wasn't any better than the food at... More
