Awesome - I have lunch here once a week. I started going to this place because a coworker would bring a plate of extra spicy scichuanese chicken and had me drooling. My wife and I visit this place often and usually have the yummy thing my coworker had (which yes is quite oily) or the sesame chicken. The place seems to be run by a family, the prices are quite good. You gotta try it!
Cheap chinese food with kick.... The food is greasy, authentic, and great. This was my first experience at an authentic Sichuanese restaurant and it quickly became one of my favorite eateries. (Don't forget to order their dried cooked pork with tofu and fish in black bean sauce.) Their "special" spicy dishes seem to be swimming in chili oil so if you can't handle heat stick to their more mild dishes. Unfortunately (or fortunately), other people have discovered this food gem and it gets really crowded during dinner and lunch rushes. The service suffers due to large volume of customers and small service staff. Be prepared to wait getting refills on water and other amenities during busy moments.
great sichuanese food. i was surprised by the bad review above. i have been to this restaurant several times, both for lunch and dinner, and have found the food to be consistently great. the ma po tofu is some of the best i have ever had (and i make a mean one myself). service does get less-than-stellar when it's crowded, and like most places of this genre the atmosphere does not inspire romance. but if you're looking for really, really good sichuanese, check it out.
Incredibly lousy food. I love spicy food but the food at this point was horrible. The chicken was what I would classify as "mystery meat" and the sauce had so much oil in it that it was hard to taste the sauce. Hard to believe that this place got such a high rating. Go figure...
Secret spot on the Eastside dishes up seriously spicy bowls of authentic Szechwan treats..
Surprisingly spacious, this simply decorated strip mall joint has a number of smaller tables around the edges with a giant 12-seater round table occupying the central place of honor. This table sets the tone for your meal--if the crowd is boisterous, expect an equally rowdy dining experience. Close to Microsoft's main campus, half the crowd is sporting official name tags at any given moment.
Almost anything ordered from the "special" page is tearfully spicy. Knight Zhang's Beef is a rich stew piled with cabbage and shredded beef; the powdered spices sprinkled on top give only a hint of the powerful flavors. The pan-fried dumplings are meaty and crisp, with a salty, spicy dipping sauce. Dry-cooked string beans are coated with chili oil and chopped garlic; blend with the steamed rice for a pleasing balance of textures and flavors. The tea is strong and bitter, and soothing on your over-heated palate.
Avoid Peak Hours otherwise Good. I would go before 6pm or after 8pm. Otherwise the service is BAD and too crowded during the peak hours. Food is has been consistently good and very affordable.
