Authentic, excellent Sichuan cuisine.

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

We do both take out and also eat in at Sichuan Gourmet. The food is excellent, really flavorful, interesting, and authentic. Our favorite local restaurant. Whenever we need a touch of tasty, but home, it is Sichuan Gourmet we reach to. Highly recommend! It is so good, it is always crowded, BUT it moves along, and take out is a... 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

If your looking for ambiance and 5 star service this is not the place for you, but if you want authentic Chinese food your in the right place! When you order and you see the little red peppers signifying how hot the food is it would be wise not to go much past the one pepper unless you really like... More

Recommended by one of my colleguaes we went to this place last Sunday. The place were this restaurant is located is not what you call an inspiring place. But if you put that aside and you accept the overcrowded restaurant once entered you will be thrilled by the quality of the food. All typical Sichuan recipes are on the menu... More

We had take-out which I specifically requested contain no peppers of any kind: chili, red, green, yellow. We really enjoyed the food and it was a great value for the money, but one dish had red peppers in it. We called about it just to let them know and to their credit they offered very enthusiastically to make it right,... More

When people use the old cliche that you can't tell a book by its cover, they might well be referring to this restaurant. It's in a standard strip mall with a tiny little storefront. I did not know if it would even have any seating -- perhaps just providing Americanized take-out to nearby chicken finger lovers. Man, was I mistaken.... More
