The food here at Grand Sichuan is incredible. Their soups are wonderful. I'm not a fan of the spicy stuff, but my husband loves them. I prefer the more general wonton or noodle soups. They have the large servings that you can enjoy as your entire meal. Great place to grab lunch!

I work at a school nearby, and I decided to go to this place a few times because another place I always went to was temporarily closed. And I think I am done with this place after several trials. First, the receptionists/cashiers are not nice and kind. Then, more importantly, food is not good at all. I tried several different dishes, but all of them was subpar compared to the other place I used to go.

I feel sorry to write such a bad review, but this place needs to improve both its service and food, I think.

Pros: Not sure

Cons: Food and service

.

The food is decent here but the service is so horrendous, there's no justifying going back. I've tred it out maybe once a year for a few years now and every time I do, I wish i hadn't. I know several other people who had the same problems and just finally gave up on the place. The worst part about it is that the staff or owners don't care that they treat their customers poorly! With the thousands of other Chinese restaurants out there, I can do without this one. Perhaps the other location is better...

Great food. Nice and spicy, with a huge variety of fish and fowl, bovine and porcine... with some tofune thrown in for good luck. Most of the customers were Chinese... that's always a good sign! If you're looking for CHOP SUEY, you're in the wrong place. This is the real stuff. Greasy, spicy, we had a native Szechuanese with us... She said it's just like mom used to make.
Good thing they had those moving family (Chinese family, that is) style trays. Most of us shared everything. We all had Tsing Tao beer. The table next to us, some kind of Chinese wedding or graduation, drank 100% Budweiser... I guess it was exotic for them. --Eat Club Org is a roving group of NYC gluttons.

Pros: authentic food, fast service, great for groups

Cons: not for casual tourists

.

I have to say, the food here was definitely average at best. Wasn't a bad place- but I don't think I'd make a trip to the area specifically for the restaurant. The food is spicy, so that's a plus for all those hot/spicy lovers out there. There was just nothing that stood out to me

I was extremely interested after reading about this place. I can only think that they have either changed hands or the great reviews were put up jobs. I've tried this place twice and found nothing to come back for. I must agree with the other negative reviews previously filed. It's the worst chinese food i've had in a long time. And I've been to China and the orient too! I'd go into greater detais about each dish but each was so poor that I'd rather not waste my time. Very few places are a total "do not return". This is one of the few!

I'm from sichuan, this is the restaurant I recommend going. food is delicious, the affordable price makes it more attractive (most items ~$10). What makes this restaurant special are the authentic sichuan cooking and being the only one in NYC that offers authentic chongqing hotpot.
my picks are:
´ÐÓͱý - Scallion Pancake (fried with vegetable juice, very special and tasty)
¹óÖݼ¦ - Guizhou Chicken
ËÄ´¨Ð¡³´ - Shredded Squid Family Style (one of my personal favorites)
ÏãÀ±Èí¿Çз - Sichuan Spicy Soft Shell Crab
Ë®ÖóÓã - Shuizhu Fish (this one is for hardcore Sichuan food fans, I wouldn't recommend to my American friends as it's very spicy. But people from Sichuan will die for it)
ÖØÇì»ð¹ø - Chongqing Hot Pot, chongqing was the biggest city of Sichuan, now became an independent province. This is also where I was from. :)

Pros: Food, Price

Cons: Decoration

I went there for lunch and it was not as good as I expected from the reviews I read. Sauce was watery and the food didn't have much flavor. If you like the food and the value you get from some of Chinatown restaurants, this is not the place for you. I don't think I would go again.

I consider the best Grand Sichuan restaurant in NYC. It is run by the same Sichuan chef who started the chain in Chinatown. If your favorite Chinese food is General Tao chicken, then this is NOT your place.

Quality of food is excellent and price is cheap, stick to pork, fish, chicken, lamb and vegetables. my picks: Guizhou chicken, fish with hot bean source, fish fillet in spicy source (special menu). Be careful, when they say spicy, they mean it!

If you want Americanized Chinese food with your usual watery, generic white sauce, this is your place. They even have a section in the menu called American Chinese food! The hot and sour soup was unbearably hot and tasted of only pepper and nothing else. My entree of hot pot with seafood was full of imitation crabmeat with a couple pieces of shrimp and squid, and was unnecessarily heated with a burner. The sauce was watery and tasted heavily of MSG. (I was thirsty as hell afterwards.) My companion's entree didn't fare any better either. (Both our entrees were not from the AC section.) His cabbage with baby shrimp came also with the same watery sauce, and no real shrimp, but dried, reconstituted shrimpthe cheapest thing you can buy. He was terribly thirsty after the meal too. What a ripoff! Don't go there!

Pros: decent decor, clean bathroom, inexpensive

Cons: bad food, inadequate service, menu too long

This branch is run by the same chef as the Chelsea Grand Sichuan branch; dishes we have ordered so far at both Lexington and Chelsea branches have been prepared identically.

Major reasons why it gets a higher rating from me:

1. it is less crowded and the service is better (including more personal),
2. the menu is longer, and includes great things like huo guo (aka hot pot or nabe) that are not found at the Chelsea branch.
The only possible drawback to this last point is that as of the date of this posting, the additional menu items are only written in Chinese.
