Have been looking for a solid Chinese restaurant (and a replacement for the Oriental Table on Exchange Street) in the concert venue region (Merrill Auditorium, Aura, State Theater, One Longfellow Street) of Congress Street. This is it! Great food at reasonable prices.

Creative, innovative, and delicious. This is a Sichuan restaurant like no other. I love what we call Chinese food, and I have never had anything better. If you are looking for chow mein and egg rolls, then no, this is not for you: it is...More

Sichuan kitchen is a small Sichuan style restaurant on Congress Street near the Portland Museum of Art. It is important to understand Sichuan style cooking: spicy. At least three spicy ingredients are often used: hot peppers, Sichuan peppercorns, and occasionally black pepper. Sure some dishes...More

Underwhelming, greasy, nonvegetarian friendly menu. Despite the many "V" placed here and there, the menu actually lists as vegetarian food cooked in chicken broth (glad I read the description), and what they mean by vegetarian is simply a vegetable and meat dish without the meat...More
