I love Chinese food, especially spicy Chinese food. I have been to Chengdu. I was recently in Pittsburgh for a meeting and heard of the restaurant. I persuaded others from the meeting to go with me. The first menu we were handed was disappointing, being...More

Chengdu has been praised in Pittsburgh Magazine for the best Chinese food in the 'burgh. I heartily agree. A lover of hot, spicy food, I was totally happy there. As many have noted, the decor shows little thought, but the food is very well thought...More

There is a lot of competition in Squirrel Hill when it comes to Asian cuisine. The unique dual menu at Chengdu is a great way to cover all the bases. They offer "American Chinese" food like General Tso's, but they also have an authentic menu...More

Chengdu Gourmet consistently shows-up on "best of" lists for Pittsburgh restaurants. I had tried to visit the restaurant on prior occasions, but gave-up due to the lack of nearby parking. This time, I was determined and used an Uber. The storefront is a bit rundown...More

We really enjoyed our meal at Chengdu. The service was great, the food arrived quickly and was very good. I really enjoyed the spicy Szechuan dumplings as an appetizer. Everything was great.

This is a bit of real Chinese food in the burgh. In Squirrel Hill and easy to get to. Parking not bad as well. I've been told to NOT order from the English menu (the one without pictures). Everything we ordered was great. Just beware,...More

The food is traditional szechuan and tastes delicious. However, the environment is nothing especial:very simple and kind of old. The waiters are nice, but service can be slow on weekends.

Visited for lunch, traveling from the North Hills of the ‘Burgh. Just a few english-speaking customers, so this was a good sign. Place was simply decorated and a bit warn, but don’t let that sway your decision. Menus are extensive - for the novice Chinese...More
