I have eaten several times at the China Chalet. The food has always been fresh and vibrant. While the Szechuan specialties are perhaps best, the more ordinary Chinese food such as pork dumplings is well executed but if your game, stick with the Szechuan or the unusual at least. If you are adventurous, Ox Tongue & Tripe in Peanut Vinaigrette, Razor Clam and Pesto Scallion, and Spicy Beef Tendon and Tripe are terrific appetizers. Szechuan lamb is as good as I've ever gotten. Fish, whether spicy or not, is well executed and balanced the Camphor Smoked Duck is smoky and flavorful. I like food spicy but if you don't, they will tone it down. Service is efficient, if a bit brusque. Portions are pretty large. Costs are higher than Chinatown but again, you save on the tolls. BTW, and this is usually a good sign, many of the dinners are Asian.
