Chengdu 46 has always been one of our favorite restaurants, and it continues to be. We especially enjoyed our most recent dinner. Everything we ordered was really delicious. We visited on Saturday evening, when they were very busy, but we had a reservation, and we did not have to wait at all. The service was also excellent. The atmosphere is... More

We have been coming to Chengdu 46 on and off for 14 years (we no longer live in the area). It hasn't changed much at all - which we consider a plus! Sure, the decor is old school but doesn't take away from the food. This is a Sichuan restaurant - not "mall" style Chinese. I have traveled to China... More

This is authentic Chinese food. I heard they bring in chefs direct from China every year. My favs are the cold sesame noodle, hot and sour soup and mu shu pork which they wrap at the table. The place tends to be very quiet and reserved, at least at lunch. But it is miles above take out.

You think Chinese food is similar---you can't be more wrong. My husband and I have eaten here many times. Each time we try something different. We have NEVER, EVER been disappointment. The service is outstanding. We still ask for suggestions because the menu has so much to offer. If you want something hotter or not so hot, it is prepared... More

Without a doubt, Chengdu 46 has the best Chinese food in the tri-state area! The careful hand of the chefs in the kitchen using different fresh spices and oils make each dish distinct. When we want terrific Chinese food, we go to Chengdu 46. The one thing that has changed in the last year or so is that they no... More

I was really anxious to eat at Chendgu 46, read so much about the gourmet Chinese food. So finally went for dinner and was not impressed as I hoped to be. The food was very good, better than take out but not like I was led to believe by the reviews. We did not order the standards, we ordered the... More

the GOOD.. service attentive... food has distinct tastes to all the dishes and not awash in tasteless sauces like many Chinese restaurants. More expensive than most other Chinese but worth the cost for the tastier dishes. Peking Duck ($42 for two) is always very good NOT so good... food quality and taste has diminished in the last few years, all... More
