I go here every time I stay in Woburn. At first glance, this doesn't look like a restaurant you would simply walk into, but once inside, you'd be pleasantly surprised. The bar is very popular and the food is wonderful. Though Americanized, the food tastes great and is very spicy (Sichuan style). I recommend Ma Po Tofu and the beef... More

The service was slow. We got spare ribs that were all fat. We returned them. So, the cook sent them back overdone. There was no vegetables or meat in the rice noodle dish we got. The General Goa type dish we got was very chewy. We didn't take the leftovers. Now I can drive by without wanting to stop in.

We recently had an excellent dinner at the Sichuan Garden. The food was more authentic than at most Chinese Restaurants. This contrasted with an earlier late lunch visit which was disappointing. But I'm so glad we gave the Sichuan a second chance. The fact that the restaurant is in the historic Baldwin House on the old Middlesex Canal is a... More

It is a little out of the way from Boston, but well worth the drive. Even though we had a reservation, we had to wait ~20min or so for our table. The Baldwin bar is to the right and the Sichuan Garden to the left. We wanted to grab a drink at the bar downstairs, but there is no standing... More

In an historic home, we've been eating st Sichuan Garden II in Woburn for a while but our recent dinner here of MA Paul Tofu with spicy pork as well as baby eggplant in spicy sauce was outstanding. A real treat. A cut way above most local Chinese restaurants. Highly recommend.

We have traveled near and far in search of good Chinese restaurants in the Greater Boston Area and this one is a rare find. Not only do they offer authentic Chinese a cut above the rest, but it is a true pleasure to spend time in the historic building, sampling some of the best in Chinese cooking. If you like... More

I dined at The Baldwin Bar for the second time this evening. My first time was a quick stop on my way back after work during the week and I sat at the bar downstairs. Tonight, I made a reservation and sat upstairs at a table. In both instances, I have been simply stunned by the creativity of the bartenders.... More

The food is excellent while the service can be slow. Most dishes are a bit on the hot side so you might want a second beverage. The real treat is in the lounge upstairs with unique spectacular cocktails.

We came here with our son, wife and grandchildren. We were seated alone in an upstairs room which was OK due to the disruptions of the children. But ... the service was extremely slow both in delivery of the food and in handling the check and payment. The food when there was good but the slow service spoiled the evening.

I read mixed reviews on TA so wasn't sure what to expect! We were greeted warmly at the door, and we had a small but comfortable private room upstairs (group of 16). We ordered group apps, including the potstickers, crab rangoon. Then we all ordered different entrees, and shared up and down the table....The food was AWESOME!!! We probably had... More
