“Ordinary Good Chinese Food”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

But if you like to pay higher prices for ordinary good Chinese food than this is the perfect spot for you. I also did not find the service as good as it might be though nothing terribly wrong...

“If you want better chinese, you may have to go to china”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

We have dined here for more than 25 years. The food is always professionally prepared. They use the finest and very fresh ingredients. We love the pieking duck and the whole sea bass (crunchy fish). The appetizers are good as well. We love the spare ribes and the dumplings (din sun). The price's are higher than you local chinese place. You will not find the same friendly service and the great atmosphere and most important, the food. We love it and are here once a month.

“Good food, pleasant experience”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

We've been going to and getting take-out from Chengdu 46 for about five years now. The food is tasty, middle-of-the-road Chinese fare so I'm surprised at the super-terrible as well as the super-good reviews here. To me, the food is just fine...perhaps a bit overpriced. I've found the best dishes are anything that they list on the their "specialities" list ("Heavenly Chicken" is a family favorite in our house) and that anything else is fairly bland and uninteresting. In terms of the dining experience, I've liked it: the waiters are very professional and prompt and the host is extremely friendly.

“Gourmet Chinese -- well above your average Chinese restaurant.”
Reviewed April 4, 2012

This restaurant has been a favorite of ours for many years. They serve items not ordinarily found on the menus of ordinary Chinese restaurants. It is consistently good...no, excellent! A little more expensive but well worth it. Treat yourself for a special occasion and you'll be creating occasions in the future.
