Sichuan cabbage was tired and tasteless, broad beans & scallions overcooked to almost mush, hunan chicken, was not like chicken I had tasted before, it was almost slimy in the mouth, with absolutely no texture. I left almost all of everything, paid the bill and left for Chinatown. Even the jasmine tea was tepid and tasteless. The beer was cold... More

Went here for lunch after reading about the "soup dumplings." When we were across the street, we noticed that the restaurant seemed like any other Chinese restaurant--nothing special. But, when we walked in the door, we saw that almost every table was taken: a good sign. We were seated at a table in the rear, next to a couple of... More

When in NYC, your first instinct for Chinese food would be China town but, grasshopper, you are wrong. Go to the Chelsea neighborhood and try this restaurant. The restaurant is unpretentious and is designed to feed you comfortably. The service is impeccable and some of the wait staff is down right cheeky which heightens the experience if you like sarcasm... More

Some of the best Sichuan food in the city...this unassuming Chinese restaurant in Chelsea has some spicy dishes in store for you. Kung Bao Chicken, dry sauteed string beans, baked hum bao, and crispy spring rolls are all top notch. Fresh ingredients, thoughtfully prepared and priced agreeably. That's what makes this my favorite in Chelsea.

The Grand Sichuan is not really fancy but the food and the service made up for the decor. We ordered the General Tso Chicken (not really spicy), Sichuan Shrimp (not really spicy either) with chicken friend rice. Everything was pretty delicious and flavorful. I was full by the end of the night. The waitress was very friendly, sassy and funny.... More

Good food, good service. very fast and efficient. As soon as a table is finished, they have it set for the next diners. Had the shrimp toast which was lovely.

The food is still good and reasonably priced. But the service required steady management on our part - please bring menus, please bring hot tea not tepid, please bring chopsticks, please bring place settings, and so on. Utensils had little bits of something stuck to them, and the fold down edges of the table had a lot of unwashed off... More

Skip all of the non-Sichuan style dishes (i.e., don't bother with soup dumplings or American Chinese dishes). Try dishes like Guizhou (spelled Aui Zhou on the menu) Chicken, Dan Dan noodles, or 水煮牛 (spelled shui zhu niu; don't know what the translation in English would be).

As a native New Yorker I lament the fact that the Asheville, NC area - while a culinary destination - is sorely lacking in first rate Chinese food of any variety. That's why when I am in NYC most of the meals I eat are Chinese and my go-to place outside Chinatown for Szechuan cooking is the Grand Sichuan in... More

This is our go-to restaurant for an easy and familiar dinner--in other words, comfort food--when we don't feel like cooking dinner ourselves. We usually order take-out so as to minimize having to put up with the surly service. My favorite: Spicy Sauteed Chinese Broccoli; Gui Zhou Spicy Chicken (it's written incorrectly in the menu as "Aui Zhou Spicy Chicken); Braised... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
