Grand Sichuan - Times Square reviews from OpenTable diners
- bad servicefernVIPDined on 2/8/2014I made the reservation on open table but they refused to accept my open table dining check
- we saw a roach in the kitchenlsquaredVIPDined on 2/1/2014we saw a roach in the kitchen (through the frosted glass). when we tried to talk to the waiter about it, he kept cutting us off, saying "i know, i know" and then suggesting dishes that we should order. this happened at least five times.
- My visit to a Chinese RestaurantelijahDined on 11/23/2013We were seated right away and the food was very good. I was also surprised at the quality of the wine served by the glass. It was quite good as well. The only problem is they booked the tables tightly, and we were politely asked to give up our table when we finished our meal, and they served the food rapidly, which explains why.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very Disappointing...CanuckVisitorDined on 11/21/2013We were looking for great Chinese food and some ambiance before a show. Unfortunately, the Grand Sichuan - Times Square delivered neither. We were seated in a mostly featureless room by the entrance that offered an unattractive view into the restaurant kitchen. We ordered vegetable Spring Rolls, General Tsao's Chicken and Chinese Vegetables. The vegetables were fine but the spring rolls were like tasteless parchment rolls and the General Tsao chicken balls had nothing to recommend them over a supermarket brand. Not what we expected in New York. Perhaps the back part of the restaurant and the more traditional sichuan dishes would have been better but we will never know....
- Truly unusual in today's ManhattanRiverheadDestinationVIPDined on 11/9/2013Truly unusual in today's Manhattan - a first rate authentic Chinese restaurant. Excellent food, reasonable prices and a helpful and knowledgeable staff. Highly recommended.I would recommend this to a friend.
- knockoutmooseDined on 11/5/2013soup potstickers were unbelievable! Excellent value too.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Food served in strange order;bannnDined on 10/23/2013Food served in strange order; duck served before appetizers; some soups were cold.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good for Sichuan Food!WMLA04VIPDined on 10/12/2013The Sichuan food here is very good and very authentic. Anyone eating the Sichuan food will be pleased. You have to like Sichuan food, which is very, very spicy. Then you will like Grand Sichuan. I also liked the Beijing Duck. Because the focus here is the Sichuan food, the mandarin cuisine, which is still good, gets lost in its minimal taste compared to the Sichuan food. I think the mandarin cuisine is good and uses good quality ingredients, but they real star of the menu is the Sichuan food. The restaurant is relatively clean, the service is straightforward, matter of fact, and direct without pleasantries. The back room is quieter and there is an outdoor room that have one large table. Overall, very good Sichuan food.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great eveningdjpdjpDined on 9/1/2013This was a real surprise. Quiet, excellent food. Very reasonable. We knew it would be good when we saw all of the Chinese folks eating there.Special Features:
- Basement like !DavemacDined on 8/13/2013very unimpressive. When you have Grand in your name, you should be more than a small (very Small) basement restaurant. Menu was minimal and food was average. nothing to rave about. Decor, ehh! They are located on restaurant row and we expected a lot more. I am not some snob who needs a lot of decor, but this place was like the chinese family next door decided to open a place in the basement.
- Excellent Sichuan dining inRiverheadDestinationVIPDined on 6/22/2013Excellent Sichuan dining in the theatre district. Friendly staff. Reasonable prices.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Delicious Chinese food atSkishDined on 6/15/2013Delicious Chinese food at a very reasonable price.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Superb, authentic Chinese foodFrequentDinerVIPDined on 5/29/2013Superb, authentic Chinese food in clean, modern dining room. Service could be improved. Great for quick thirty minute pre-theater dining or long leisurely dining. Grease-free and very fresh food. Must try Fuschia Dunlop's version of Dan-Dan Noodles. Great Soup Dumplings. Have never had a bad dish there.Special Features:
- Grand Sichuan is a lower priced,OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIPDined on 5/24/2013Grand Sichuan is a lower priced, unpretentious restaurant with terrific food. The portions are very generous, so be careful not to over order. Many of the dishes are quite spicy but the heat never overwhelms the complex flavors. This is a great pre-theater restaurant, quite different from many of the assembly line places on Restaurant Row.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Food was excellent and theOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 4/20/2013Food was excellent and the service was courteous and prompt.
- Delicious food. The soup dumplingsOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 4/7/2013Delicious food. The soup dumplings are a must and I loved the super tender sliced lamb stir fry.Special Features:
- Very authentic food, fairCeciVIPDined on 3/28/2013Very authentic food, fair price. It can be spicey!
- This place is more of a ChineseOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 3/9/2013This place is more of a Chinese take out, than a restaurant you want to have a nice meal before or after the show. It doesn't belong in this district.
- Food was very ordinary andFred58VIPDined on 3/2/2013Food was very ordinary and I was immediately concerned about eating there because the restaurant had a B rating from the health board as opposed to an A. That is reason enough not to go but I had no choice because I had tickets to a show and did not have time to go somewhere else. It would be helpful if this website posted the health board ratings so you know before you make a reservation.
- One of NYC's best SzichuanCeciVIPDined on 2/27/2013One of NYC's best Szichuan restaurants; very authentic. But they need to have chili paste!Special Features:
- Very good Sichuan food inRiverheadDestinationVIPDined on 2/14/2013Very good Sichuan food in the theatre district. Creative cooking, strong presentation,courteous and helpful staff. Recommended.
- Food was fair, nothing toMareDined on 11/17/2012Food was fair, nothing to get excited about. But reasonably priced for NYC.
- Didn't honor my reservation,JasonVIPDined on 10/30/2012Didn't honor my reservation, but just turned us away saying that they were full.
- Close to Times Square, basicOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 10/6/2012Close to Times Square, basic decor, fast service, and good food make this a worthwhile restaurant to try whilst in the area.
- Was not impressed. SmokeOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 10/6/2012Was not impressed. Smoke from waiters smoking outside drifted into the small front dining room. When I asked for help ordering, I was told I would not like many of the specialties as they were too "foreign". My daughter ordered the worst Gen. Tso's chicken we have ever eaten, pasty exterior and meat that tasted like nothing. I had the very tender beef in red wine sauce, which was tasty but could have been beef burgundy from a cheap French restaurant - nothing Asian about it. Very disappointing meal.
- Don't waste your timeDonaldVIPDined on 10/3/2012Had to ask to have static radio station turned off or changed. It was changed but static remained. Found food to be very bland and lacking flavor. Would not recommend this restaurant or will ever return. Food came extremely fast and sat in front section of restaurant which was very hot and could not wait too get outside were it was cooler. No Air conditioner on even though I saw air conditioning units on wall.
- We made a reservation forLRCRDined on 8/30/2012We made a reservation for 10:15 PM, but when we arrived the hostess said there's no reservation unde my name and we must eat fast because de kitchen was going to close in half an hour! After us, some people arrived and they were seated and served. I honk the owner of the place changed the situation!
- MediocreOpenTable Diner Since 2008Dined on 7/24/2012Service wasn't fast, meat a little chewy. Maybe I just ordered badly...?
- Grand Sichuan is ChinatownOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 7/7/2012Grand Sichuan is Chinatown in the theatre district, and cleaner!Special Features:
- Best Pre theater Chinese!OpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 6/27/2012There is one table outside that seats 8 or 10 which was lovely. Kind of private, set aside but outside. Unlike other pre-theater restaurants, quiet and the food was not greasy, ordinary NY chinese food. It was more upscale but not too expensive.
- The food is unexpected...OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 6/19/2012The food is unexpected... The spicy pot (麻辣香锅) is not authentic. The vegetables are good. Waiters are friendly, and one of them is a little nervous and the other funny. Price is fair.Special Features:
- Recommended!QBillVIPDined on 6/9/2012Good food at a reasonable price, which is remarkable given the proximity to Times Square.
- This is an unpretentious,OpenTable Diner Since 2005VIPDined on 6/1/2012This is an unpretentious, moderately priced restaurant that serves large portions of excellent Sichuan food. The boneless Sichuan chicken is smothered with chilies and, if you like spicy-hot food, absolutely delicious. Also terrific are the scallion pancakes.Special Features:
- In the barren desert of theOpenTable Diner Since 2006VIPDined on 5/5/2012In the barren desert of the theatre district, this outpost of the Grand Sichuan empire is priceless if only because of the relative lack of decent and affordable places in the area.
- Excellent Sichaun style diningOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 5/3/2012Excellent Sichaun style dining (read spicy). Alittle limited for Vegans like myself. Definitely a repeat for us - really good food, not overly sauced, good service, etc.Special Features:
- My wife and I came after seeingOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 4/8/2012My wife and I came after seeing an evening play on Easter Sunday. We wanted some authentic Chinese food and other reviews on this site raved about the food. The food itself was very good. It was very tasty. I found we were rushed through the whole dining process. We got there about 9:45 pm and by 10:30 the staff all looked like they wanted to go home for the night, even though it was marked as being open to 11 pm. Maybe if we had come earlier in the night we would have not felt as rushed to finish up and leave.Special Features:
- Amazing Chinese food in aOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 4/6/2012Amazing Chinese food in a quiet spot on restaurant row.Impeccable service.Most clients are Asian, so it's a good sign that the food is authentic.Special Features:
- A quickieOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 4/3/2012Good for a quick dinner per theater Good size portions. Very small I almost thought it was a take out restaurant
