THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Szechuan Gallery Restaurant Restaurant Review

: If you really want to savor some authentic Chinese food, ask the waiter for the Chinese menu, where the kitchen staff posts dishes not available on the more familiar-sounding list. It helps if you bring along a friend who speaks Chinese; that way, you can determine which fish is freshest and what specials the chef is willing to stir together. We recommend any of the clam or crab dishes in season, plus the beef with coriander and dried bean curd, and crisp-fried baby fish with peanuts. If you still have an appetite, add an order of Yu Ling duck and the salt and pepper shrimp. Located right in the middle of Chinatown, this has been a longtime favorite of locals and has managed to stand the test of time. Despite the competition, it’s usually quite busy.
