Busy…for good reason

I love the Hot Chicken. My Mister thinks the Hot and Sour Soup is the best he's had. If you're looking for an appetizer, the onion pancakes are great.

Loved this place. A hole in the strip mall wall of a place but well worth the time to seek out. I had the Cilantro chicken and my Wife had the broccoli chicken. Both were delicious. My only complaint is the lack of brown rice as an option.

We live a few blocks from the international district including this hidden spot. We go here almost once a week for the Chong Ching chicken and fish and pickled vegetable soup. Device is fantastic and quality and portions is great. Parking here is terrible and cleanliness is so so. If this location doesn't do it for you try "seven star"... More

The menu has many vegetarian options, which I appreciated. It also has extensive meat options. I love food that is very hot and spicy. I have trouble finding it in the Northwest. Usually the flavor is blasted out by the hot spice or the food is not spicy enough. I often have to order chili oil on the side. Not... More

Sichuanese Chinese is easily the best Sichuanese food I have had outside of China. I used to live in Shaanxi province and the authentic food at this restaurant immediately brought the experience back to me. The restaurant itself is no-frills, and the service is very basic, but the food is so good that none of that will matter to you.... More

This is a "hole in the wall" restaurant. Parking can be tight, so sometimes we park on the next block. The food is amazing and pretty fast. With one round table and a number of rectangular tables, sometimes it's quite crowded. The food is freshly prepared from raw ingredients. My favorites are the eggplant and green bean dishes. Wonderful! Sometimes... More

Amazing food day. We shared multiple dishes and all were phenomenal. The eggplant took the award for best of the best, and I'm not an eggplant junky. Does anyone know if the Redmond location is owned by same people? Can't wait to revisit.

When we manage to get off our island my favorite travel companion starts making little whimpering noises about how she hasn't had Chinese food in years... And so it's off to Sichuanese Cuisine, a hole in the wall in the International District with all the glamor of a phone booth (remember those?), parking that is chaotic and inadequate -- and... More

Great food. Kind of a hole in the wall but down home, Sichuan food. The real thing. Try the dry fried string beans that are mixed with small pieces of fried chicken. The green veggies were great too. The staff was very friendly.

Best Chinese food I've had in years. Obviously a well-loved popular place. Would return without question. Location is a problem. It's in a little mall --- hard to find on a rainy night. Not much parking --- and the place is too small for the crowd it brings in! Those are the only drawbacks.
