It seems to be a new restaurant do we decided to give it a try. We had beef noodle, dong Po pork, and mixed vegetables of your choices. The portion of food is quite big. The beef in the beef noodle is tender but gamey....The pork is very tender and we both enjoyed it. We also like the mixed vegetables. Very spicy but good. You can choose the combination of vegetables, seafood and meat. My husband also had spicy wonton, decent, not great.More

Dongpo Impression is in the spot where Yan Bang Cai offered great Sichuan food (and before that, Double Li) - and those were good, but this is even better. They are owned by the same folks that operate Chengdu Impression on the near north side....It is 100% authentic Sichuan cuisine (it isn't all spicy - but the dishes that are spicy are really spicy). Everything very well prepared - nothing over-cooked, nothing drowning in thick generic sauces. Every sauce is appropriate to the dish. Fish fillet with green peppercorns is delightful, great cumin lamb, many other dishes on an extensive menu. This is Sichuan cuisine at its very best.More

This restaurant is at the same location where Yan Bang Cai was, and Double Li before that. It continues the Sichuan tradition at that spot, but raises the bar a bit. Dongpo Impression is owned by the people who own Chengdu Impression on N. Halstead,...and this is every bit as good as that. The food is totally authentic Sichuan cuisine. The spices are not tamed down for American taste, unless you specifically ask them to. There are many Sichuan dishes on the menu that are not available elsewhere in Chicago (except for Chengdu Impression). Service is very friendly, the range of dishes is very broad, the preparation is superb. This is the highest level Sichuan kitchen in town.More

Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest
neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on
character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In
this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic
Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth
Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or
other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your
visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures
