Having lived in China and eaten in Yiben - the hometown of the drink that is the namesake of the hotel, I feel reasonably qualified to comment. Of course the food is not quite as spicy as it would be in Yibin or Chengdu but it is quite reasonable. Service was a little slow but other than that everything was... More

Their Mapo Tofu is probably one of the best in the City. Superb. It was as not as crowded as I imagined and they let me sit at the table and ordered while I was waiting for my friend to come. It is not cheap but given the location and the quality, it is acceptable.

I go here every time in town on business. The food is delicious and the service is decent. The room is kind of cramped when the place is busy. I recommend the chilled noodles, they are great.

It's been a while since visiting here and I still enjoy this Restaraunt very much. Had the full bodied hot and sour soup, filet mignon and shrimp dishes. All quite tasty. Make a reservation for lunch or you will wait. Located just a few minutes from Times Sq. Look up to catch the sign!

We ate here for dinner during a day trip into NYC. My uncle, who brought us, has eaten here many times before. Based on his recommendation, my boyfriend ordered salt and pepper prawns, which were excellent. I ordered the pan fried noodles with veggies, which was amazingly good. All told, we had a very good meal with no food left... More

It was a disappointment because this is supposed to be a high-end Si-chuan restaurant which provide some authentic Chinese cuisine. However, for one of the most typical courses, "水煮鱼" a.k.a., "boiled fish fillets with hot chili" , it failed big time. it does not give a natural fish flavor in your mouth. After examine the fish fillet with my naked... More

If you are looking for standard chinese food without any flair, visit this place. The staff must be playing cards or something in the back because the LAST thing they want to do is help you or make sure that your dining experience is a good one. I had water, I was never asked if I wanted anything to drink... More

We had a nice meal with appetizers and four shared entrees.The service was good and I liked the dining room (probably once the parlor of a private home.) It was pricey.

The restaurant was highly ranked as a Sichuan restaurant by the Village Voice and although the food was good and service was pleasant, I thought it was a little over-rated. Most of the food on the menu you can find in any Chinese restaurant and although the meal was good and portion sizes were fair, the food is cheaper in... More

We ordered braised fish fillet and pea shoots, we ended up paying $59 before tip. First of all, fillet wasn't even close to the best that I've had, I think it's $26 vs. $16 at Han or Grand Sichuan, which has much better fish. Pea shoots cost $23? come one, that's high way robbery. I am never going back to... More
