Little Sichuan is not a place for the feint at heart. If you LOVE SPICY food, then come here immediately. They have dishes that are often too hot to handle, but you can request varying degrees of spiciness. I highly recommend the spicy cold noodles that is served with ground meat. It is really tasty even with the burn of the spice. I also recommend the ma pao tofu and the stir fried string beans. If you are planning on eating here, make sure you order a lot of water! The place itself is okay on the inside and the prices are reasonable. Sometimes the parking runs out in the lot but parking on the street is not too bad.

The resturaunt was dirty and the service was horrible. They are unable to get orders correct and they are unable to provide you with enough service (even when it isn't a busy day). (09-24-07)

( the review above was made weeks before the review made below.)

Even though they have horrible service I still go back to little sichuan for the food. My family and I have been a loyal customer to them for at least five years. Last week the most disgusting thing happened...while eating our usual order of vegtable chow mein and tofu, one of us noticed a black little thing lying on the plate. It was a cockroach! It was the size of a quarter, it was dead and I think all the legs were still attached to it. ICK! I'm never going back there! I starting to feel sick again just by thinking of it! (10-06-07)

The food is ok. The service is so bad. There's a tall fat guy who speaks English quite well service is so poor. When you order the food, he even didn't look at you. When a customer ask him to do some service, he even yelled at the customers in front the owner and owner just ignore what he had done to the customer. I'll never go there again.

Cons: worst service

Very spicy sichuan food. Great food but as with most Chinese restaurants, there is no such thing as customer service. Strange how they still expect to be tipped!

We drove all the way to San Mateo for some traditional Chinese breakfast food... dou jeung (soybean milk), you tiu, that sort of thing. We were sorely disappointed.

The dou jeung tasted burnt, and nothing else was that good either. The you tiu weren't fresh, the potstickers were hard to eat, and the green onion pancakes had no flavor. Maybe we came on an off-day, but I'm not planning on trying Little Sichuan again to see if the food is normally better.

Pros: okay service

Cons: the quality of food

.

Memorable not for the average food, but for quite possibly the worst service I have ever encountered! The wait staff is beyond rude, and the only "service" you will receive is when the check is dropped off at your table with the arrival of the last dish! A definate NO!

Cons: Horrible Service, Average Food

Spicy Sichuan cold noodles and some spicy dishes are very famous and delicious(ex. Taro duck, spicy beef). But the service is way below the average. The price is reasonable.

This place is one of me and my coworkers regular lunch spots. The food is good, the portions are big and the overall value is great. The service, is the absolute worst I've ever encountered. A couple times, I needed to break a $20 bill and they refused to give me change. Also, they consistently hand you the bill with the food, implying hurry up and eat and leave so they can turn the table. They give you about 1 minute to decide what you want to order. The epitomy of bad service.

Pros: good food, inexpensive, large portions

Cons: terrible service, won't break a $20

Not big on writing reviews, but I had to let you know that if you're considering going to Little Sichuan then be prepared to keep your cool, and focus ONLY on the quality of food. The service is terrible, waiters are actually rude at times.

Pros: Food

.

This is one of the places that has good food but less than ordinary service.
On a scorching day, in peak summers, this place doesn't serve even a glass of water when you enter.
The waiters and waiteresses are arrogant and indifferent to cutomer's needs, not to mention that fact that they are not very well conversant in English.
I guess the owner has some other vocations too and this reaturant is not something that is on his priority list.
Well............thats the blessing of owning a restaurant in San Mateo down town right ?
