Have been going to this restaurant for years but went in September and have to ask why change something that is excellent? The spare ribs were so tough and not the usual melt in your mouth honey glazed-nor was the crispy fish the usual large fish cooked to perfection-it looked like a fried minnow compared to the usual-so Chengdu 46...

We cannot emphasize enough how disappointed we are in this restaurant. We have been customers since the restaurant opened, always looking forward to going back. Not anymore, there are many empty tables. We used to wait for a table, but now you can walk right in. We will not go back unless we find there is some indication that they... More

This has always been a great restaurant but our last experience was disappointing. Too bad. The green beans, which were always crispy and tasteful, were soggy and overdone.The other dishes were not up to their usual standards either. I will wait until I hear good reports before we go back.

Each time I come here the staff and service is always consistent. The food is always very good and the staff are always attentive. I will come back here over and over again. It's that good.

The old chefs and management are back!! The 5 weeks with the "new team" didn't work out - during that time the food went downhill. Now that the old team is back the quality of food is once again exceptional.

It used to be very special, but last couple of times it was missing a bit. I don't know if they have a new chef or what. It's still better than anything else around though

Peking duck on offer without needing to order in advance. Excellent szchuan spicy dumplings as an appetizer. This place has been around many years and continues to serve fairly good quality food at fair prices. This is a comfortable restaurant with table clothes and excellent service and nicely plated dishes. Good wine list for a chinese restaurant and full bar.

Thank coeurdelion

I ate at Chendu 46 last night as I have for the past 26 years. I kept going because the food, although a bit overpriced, was the best Chinese food I have eaten. Well, surprise surprise. They have installed a new manager and he comes from another Chinese restaurant named Chengdu 23 which I've eaten at only once as it... More
