Foursquare Tips

  • The chef here, Ding Gen Wang, is something of a star in his native China. Although everything here is very good, the best dishes are off-the-menu. [Eater 38 Member]
  • The Chonjqing chicken is NOT fucking around. If you love spicy this dish is for you.
  • has become my go to spot for sichuan food. Menu is massive - order dan dan noodles, glutinous rice balls, wonton in red oil, ma po tofu is sick, also all chicken and pork dishes from sichuan region.
  • "Everyone talks about Mission Chinese, but Legend actually has better food and gets less hype. This is where we go to get our crazy Chinese on, sans hipsters and hip hop." http://buff.ly/VKX2eM
  • The BEST Chinese food I've had in NYC, which says a lot because there's a LOT of Chinese food in the city. Den den noodles, duck, fish/pickled veggie soup, mapo tofu, chili prawns, shrimp dumplings.
  • Come here for the Dan Dan Noodles, soup dumplings, and excellent lunch specials.
  • Try the Dry Spicy Chicken w peanuts, the exploding pork dumplings and #54 Bean Curd mixed with chopped green onion... it will surprise you.
  • I literally have eaten here every week for the past 2 years. Everything is great! highlights include: chengdu spicy fish filet, spicy Sichuan cold noodle, spicy stir fried eggplant, chonqing chicken
  • Dumplings in red oil had the baby kicking. Sheeeesssshhh hot and fun
  • Order from the Sichuan pages of the menu BUT ALSO get the scallion pancake. Weirdly, it's one of the best in the city.
  • One of the top sources for Sichuan food in the city.
  • Parties of two have to do a "hot pot prix fixe" with a choice of beef or lamb. The cost is $43.95 for two. The pot arrives with both the meat and broth already inside.
  • So good. Highly recommend the Chedung duck abd the braised pork shoulder
  • Best Sichuan food in the city!
  • Hot pot for two is the perfect meal for a winter day
  • Best mapo tofu I've ever had in my life, ohmigod.
  • Skip the Americanized stuff for great Sichuan like juicy Chongqing chicken and crackly fried eggplant.
  • Try the Dry Spicy Diced Chicken With Ginger And Peanuts
  • Surprisingly delicious and quite authentic dishes.
  • This place has a C. Cooool didn't know that when ordering from seamless.
