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.

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

This restaurant has always been known for outstanding food. Although quite pricey it was considered reasonable because the quality of food was so great. Ordered takeout lunch for the office and for $200 it was horrible. The duck was dry the egg rolls had no taste. The spare ribs were overcooked and dry. The Duck Sauce in containers was watered...

I have being hearing for over 25 years that this is the best Chinese restaurant in New Jersey but I had never been until just now. We had 7PM Saturday night reservations and were seated immediately upon arrival. It was a busy night but on over crowded. Although this is more of an upscale establishment, the clientele is very mixed... More

A wonderfully appointed dining room with a Chinese flare . Spot lighting adds to the dining rooms drama. The food is unusual. A high standard for Chinese cuisuine. The rice itself is superior to that you have ever had. There is a small bar and they also afford takeout, The dining experience , even just once is well worth the... More

Chengdu 46 has always been one of our favorite restaurants, and it continues to be. We especially enjoyed our most recent dinner. Everything we ordered was really delicious. We visited on Saturday evening, when they were very busy, but we had a reservation, and we did not have to wait at all. The service was also excellent. The atmosphere is... More

We have been coming to Chengdu 46 on and off for 14 years (we no longer live in the area). It hasn't changed much at all - which we consider a plus! Sure, the decor is old school but doesn't take away from the food. This is a Sichuan restaurant - not "mall" style Chinese. I have traveled to China... More

This is authentic Chinese food. I heard they bring in chefs direct from China every year. My favs are the cold sesame noodle, hot and sour soup and mu shu pork which they wrap at the table. The place tends to be very quiet and reserved, at least at lunch. But it is miles above take out.
