“Use hot sauce to hide”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

This restaurant love to hide the lack of freshness with the hot sauce. Obviously many customers don't see it... but I obviously do. I order the sea bass and the fish for lack of suitable words to keep this rated G tasted as if it got caught a month ago. I paid a lot of money for that damn fish. I expect a decent dish in return.

“Consistently good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Menu is very reliable, takeout, too. A Chinese menu which is excellent. Best eggplant dish I've ever had on that menu

“Excellent Sichuan food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

This is an excellent Sichuan style Chinese restaurant. This restaurant has two set of menus. They will ask you if you would like to have Chinese style Sichuan food or American style Sichuan food. If you ask for Chinese style, then the dishes are really spicy. IMO, it is much more original than Sichuan Gourmet in Brookline. Some recommended foods are Kung Pao chicken, general tso chicken, etc. The restaurant is not large. You may have to wait for 20 minutes during peak hours. Price around $15--$20 per person.

“Great place for authentic Sichuan-style Chinese cuisine!”

Not a fancy-schmancy place, but the food is authentically tasty and service warm and efficient. Try their wenjun fish and tujia eggplant!

“Great chong qin chicken”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

One of the few good Chinese restaurants in Boston and a welcome addition to our regular dining experience. Try the aforementioned chicken dish and balance it out with white bamboo and okra. Top it off with the tiger skin chiles. Great stuff.
