I wouldn't expect more from this restaurant than typical Americanized Chinese fare. The portions are very good, the service very poor, and there was little Sichuan I could find in my dish.

If you are a vegetarian, you cannot eat here. For example, the menu says the hot & sour soup is "vegetarian," but if you ask if it actually has broth in it, they say yes...that's not vegetarian! None of their soups are. I was reduced to

Expect to put your name down and then add another 45 minutes at the said time. It is not worth the long wait only to be expected to wolf the food down and leave. We were a party of three and they kept on refusing to sit us down at tables

The food was descent BUT we were asked to pay our bill and leave before we were even done with our dessert! I get that they had people waiting but we weren't just lounging around by any means. The server was crazy RUDE about it! At least

It's all about the Fresh Chicken and the Soup Dumplings - complain all you want about the other dishes, but those two alone will have me coming back time and time again to this no-frills no-nonsense eatery that has to be the best Szechuan

The food was great - big portions, very tasty and inexpensive. The dumplings are delicious. Although the wait was long(without reservations), its worth it. A must go when you are in New York. The best part... it is not touristy!

Pros: Fast service once you are seated

There are very few restaurants in NYC offering authentic Chinese food at better prices. Not the perfect restaurant to go on a date, but definitely worth checking out.

Just wondering how anyone could give positive reviews about this place!?!?

I used to like Gran Szechuan for its affordable, fresh, yummy Chinese food. However over the years the service (which was never its crowning point to begin with) has gotten surlier and surlier, especially, frankly, to non-Chinese patrons.

The best Chinese food. Mapo tofu is best I've ever had. However the hostesses are very rude. The service is whatever. I would recommend going only for great chinese food. Or opt for take-out instead.

The Grand Sichuans run by this chef are the best Sichuan in the city.
And cheap too.

A neighborhood favorite, you need to get there early on Sunday nights when there is a line for tables. The straight forward frech tasting food is even better brought to your home. Try the General Tso's or let them chose for you!
