“I could only eat about 5 bites.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2012

I love mapo tofu but this dish was a bit too spicy for me. There was red hot chili oil floating on top.... it was delicious, though.

I guess you have just go for the experience. Don't expect much in way of service.

“This is the real thing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011

It is the original Mapo Tofu and everyone will love this version as long as they love the texture of the tofu and the spicy of the ma la sichuan peppercorns and the red chili peppers.

It is just the best dish and most common dish here, advise to eat with rice.

“First your tongue starts to tingle, then...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2010

First your tongue starts to tingle, then your whole mouth vibrates with the taste of fiery Sichuan peppercorns- a clove/ginger/chili mythical meal. My 8-year old son couldn't stop eating the signature mapo dofu, then explained when we left that his "lips were sparkling."
Service was a little numbing also (eat downstairs for a more casual meal)- but certainly no reason to skip this place. In fact, chasing down someone to order was half the fun. This place is the real deal.
