This restaurant may not be to everyone's taste, but enough people love that it is often full. The selection of dishes is huge and the servings are generous. Be aware that much of the food is quite spicy. If you like spicy, you'll like it here. If you prefer blander fare, you'll need to be selective in what you order. Our party of four started with Mouth Watering Chicken. The chicken was deliciously spicy and prepared our palates for the rest of the meal. We had Dan Dan Noodles which were excellent. . .these can be prepared spicy or not. We had one of each. . .the spicy was excellent, but to my taste the mild was just a bowl of spaghetti with little taste. The Kung Pao Chicken (Chinese style) was spicy and abundant in chicken and peanuts. We also had Dry Fried Stringbeans which my spouse orders whenever a restaurant has them. She said these were the best she has ever had. She's had a lot, so that's a big compliment. An outstanding meal was enjoyed by all.

First time eating here... ordered kungpao chicken; my date ordered chicken and vegs. The chicken had the texture of balls of fat. I think they processed chicken scraps mixed with about 75% fat... Tastless and gross. Told the mgr how awful it was and she just shrugged and walked away.

This unassuming restaurant is a real find, and if you're traveling through New England, it's not very far off of I-95. We live in a town near Milford, CT and over the years we've tasted over 75 of the dishes offered by Lao Sze Chuan, never disappointed. While the inexpensive lunch (soup, spring roll, main dish, dessert, tea) is mostly Cantonese, the regular menu has a broad range of interesting preparations from various parts of China. If you can, go with a bunch of people so you can share many different items.

Unbelievable to have this place in such a small town like Milford. The place is also very small with minimal decoration. But they served good Chinese food, especially the vegetable. Price is reasonable.

Don't go here for chop suey: This is the real thing. We started with a well-prepared dish of pickled jelly fish with minced scallion sauce. The strips of jelly fish were nicely dressed in the green, smooth sauce,—different from the usual coating of sesame oil—and quite delicious. An order of "stuffed tofu crepe with black mushrooms and bamboo shoots," happily turned out to be tofu skin and an emphasis on black mushrooms. Our main courses included a wonderfully flavored braised duck casserole, an appropriately spicy Ma Po Tofu, and a fresh and tasty sautéed green that I think was Chinese spinach—ask what the freshest green is that day, and it will arrive! Our waitress was sweet and attentive—but we got there early and before the place got busy.
