“Authentic Chinese in a San Antonio strip center”
Reviewed December 1, 2011

Most tables are occupied by Asians ... that tells you something.

Best dumplings in SA and less than $4 for 10!!!

Never had anything but excellent food and I have ordered from all corners of the menu avoiding some of the more exotic (e.g. pig ears). Watch the heat request because they take you literally - they can burn you out.

Decor is Asian kitsch and service can be spotty but the quality of the food more than makes up for these "deficiencies".

This place deserves much more business.

“Genuine Sichuan Cuisine in San Antonio! About time!”
Reviewed October 12, 2011

Although San Antonio has good Thai, Vietnamese and Korean restaurants, it has been terribly short of decent Chinese restaurants. Sichuan Cuisine is the real thing! Finally! Excellent dishes include Chengdu Style dumplings, Sichuan Tea Smoked Duck, and Sauteed String Beans with Ground Pork. Many of the dishes are seriously hot, such as Bang Bang Chicken (cold appetizer) and Chong Qin Crispy Spicy Chicken (40% crispy pieces of chicken 60% dried red peppers (not to eat)). Chengdu Style Spicy Shrimp also in a mound of hot red peppers; you can - and should - eat the entire shell, minus head and tail. There are even more adventurous dishes on the extensive menu. We've been back several times.
