I love Sichuan style Chinese food and these were the BEST wontons I've ever had. They come in a perfect sauce... combination of soy sauce, vinegar and hot oil with scallions. You must try. We also had dan dan noodles and general tso's chicken. Both...More

Wonderful list of chinese (ChengDu province) spicy selection to pick from. Must try the Lamb Cumin, Fried chilly chicken and Mar-Lar (short tongue/limb burning sensation) fish. Service is not as good as they only have 2 waitress that takes order. Also wished all the dishes...More

We got delivered so can't talk about the service but the food just had no flavor at all. We had Kung Pao and the Orange chicken along with vegetable fried noodle. None of the food had any real flavor at all and the noodles were...More

Even though the customer service is some of the worst, the food is great and the service is usually alright. Even if the service was worse, I would recommend going. I have been to more expensive restaurants, yet this one has the tastiest food. Lots...More

We were asked to leave and served bill before being asked if we wanted desert or coffee or tea. I noticed that other Asians were not treated the same. I would suggest that non asians should expect rather cursory service.

This unassuming restaurant serves real Chinese food, not chicken nuggets in a neon-orange sauce. The decor is basic but the place is busy, the service is good and the food is by turns intense, balanced, and just flat-out good.

Second time visiting impressions, and I came away more impressed. We sampled a wide variety of dishes, but I could have stopped at the tofu. Amazing! We also had duck, shrimp and an assortment of veggies. Beware, the food does come with an elevated spice...More

I visit every month for work and always hit a a Szechuan restaurant as we don't have good Chinese food let alone Szechuan where I live. Chengdu Impression was excellent, I had the Dan Dan noodles but the real star was the Kung Pao Shrimp...More

Chengdu Impression, located in an area where one does not find a lot of truly authentic Chinese cuisine, is a winner. This is genuine, authentic Sichuan cooking, as one would find it in Chongqing or Chengdu. There are non-spicy items on the menu, and they...More
