If you like spicy food, this is a place to go. They have many types of spicy food. The environment was good. The restaurant was quite clean. The service was quite fast. A good value restaurant

This is a terrific Szechuan restaurant that is very reasonably priced. It is the original of the branch that is now located on Michigan Avenue. Having been to both, I prefer this one for its authenticity and its pricing!

Our son who lives in Chicago took us to this restaurant. We ordered several appetizers and entrees which we all shared and everything I tasted was amazing. Highlights included Tonys Chicken, garlic chicken and Kung Pao Chix. Can't wait to visit our son again soon and revisit this excellent restaurant.

Ate here with my wife and step-daughter, who live in Chengdu & MianYang, Sichuan. We ordered four dishes and shared. I loved them all and they rated a 4 but the stuff was quite authentic. Even my Kung Pao Shrimp was not westernized much. Either way very good.

Many of the clientele speak some dialetic of Chinese, so I presume this is the real deal. I enjoyed the jellyfish, Shanghai style, as an appetizer and the Kong Pau chicken, which in no way resembled the Kung Pow stuff on Chinese restaurant buffets. The service left something to be desired, but the waitress apologized, saying that they were "very busy." It was true.
