    we 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.

    We 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.

    Dined on 11/21/2013
    We 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....

    The 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.

    very 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.

    Superb, 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.

    Dined on 5/24/2013
    Grand 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.

    Dined on 3/2/2013
    Food 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.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 10/6/2012
    Was 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.

    Had 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.

    There 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.

    My 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.
