    I love this restaurant, they always do a great job with everything & their Sichuanese food is very authentic. I’d recommend their Mapo Doufu & Liangfen which are my favorites & are perfectly done every time

    Food is authentic and the decoration looks nice. Staffs are welcoming. However, portions are really small vs the price. Not so many selections as well... impressed by the taste but disappointed by the quantity. Second floor was cold ... the kids had to wear jackets when eating

    This is the real deal Szechuan. Was just like being in China. Fresh, interesting, dishes. Sure, some are very spicy, but also dumplings and other options. Will be back for sure.

    The food was everything we thought it would be: Dandan Noodle, Braised Pork Belly Chunks, Kung Pao Shrimp, Eggplant with ground pork and Mapo Tofu. The service was somewhat inattentive and if we needed something it usually took several staff to go past us before someone would stop and receive our request. Despite this problem, I will definitely return and recommend the restaurant to others.

    Beware: This is serious Sichuan food. Unless you are a fire eater, proceed with caution when ordering spicy dishes. This is probably the best Sichuan food in greater LA.

    If you're not a spicy food lover, don't try this restaurant. Even when they tone down the spice, it's spicy -- it's Szechuan Chinese cuisine after all.

    The service was horrible! Most employees weren’t trained to handle a big group (10+). Foods were brought out randomly... the staffs need more experiences. The foods were decent but nothing was great... not a good evening for our guests.

    In general, we really like Chengdu Impression. However, when we have eaten here before we had better service and food. This time some of the offerings, eg. the dan dan noodles, were as good as usual. However, some dishes, especially the especially super spicy shrimp, were oily, and we had to ask several times for another dish, pea shoots, to be served. Chengdu Impressions generally serves sophisticated mostly Sichuan cuisine in a lovely setting. We hope our last experience does not indicate a trend.

    Food was excellent for sure. Chicken soup was amazing. The price was reasonable for the quality of food. However, the windows did not close tight and the room became quite cold in the night since the wind could come in. Meanwhile, rice/carb should come with the dishes. The dishes were very flavorful but needed rice to go with.

    We came here to honor the late Jonathan gold. He had recommended this restaurant, if not discovered it. I found it to be very very overpriced for quite basic food. $75 for two people can buy you all lunch anywhere else.
