Sichuan had so so reviews but we figured it would be fine because Chinese food seems to always be good. They did give us decent fried tofu, but the General Tso flavor was a bit lacking in it as well in our other dishes. We also had fried rice, Lo Mien and tea to drink, all quite bland, no spice...

Restaurant was inviting staff was friendly. Good quality taste I usually ask for spicy but had a feeling this was authentic. My beef with hot peppers was spot on and very tasty great sauce. Just hot enough we're almost halfway through you start slightly sweating and your nose runs a bit. Served with a small bowl of rice. Take a... More

This is not what I expect when ordering Szechuan food. Four of us (three vegetarians and an omnivore) ate dinner here. We were seated promptly. Appreciated a large pot of tea on a very cold evening, but alas I could not detect any taste of tea; it was not much more than hot water. Despite an extensive menu, there was... More

The food was awesome and good value for money (portions are huge) -I think it is one of the best chinese restaurant ever outside of Asia. Staffs are friendly too.

Lunch today was outstanding. It was a holiday celebration among 15 working associates who are also good friends. And, we did it at the very best Sichuan Restaurant in the Washington, DC area. The food is the most important part of the experience, and we had plenty of it. We started with a Cold Tendon and Tripe Appetizer. This was... More

We stumbled on this great restaurant and other patrons at the door recommended it. We were greeted with yummy and warming hot tea (perfect for the cold night). There were many choices on the menu for food and drink. We ordered from the authentic items and chef specials. The service was perfect and the food was quite good.

I had lunch at the Sichuan Pavilion yesterday with a friend. The best Sichuan cuisine I have had in years. Friendly staff, fast service, brilliant food. Make sure you arrive before the lunch crowd (we arrived at 1130); there is a line--which is always a good sign. Highest recommendation!

4 of us visited this restaurant, mini business/casual meeting. We ordered the Kung pao lamb, shredded pork, lamb in beef stew and noodles and stir fried noodles. The food was so good, a bit salty but still tasty. A bit on the high side but totally worth it! I would definitely be going back there.
