Editorial Review
It's rather interesting that prior to Famous Sichuan arriving on Pell Street, there was nowhere in Chinatown to get authentic Sichuan Food. While people still crowd Joe's Shanghai across the street and wait an hour for a table, it is at Famous Sichuan you will find some spectacular dishes that you are unlikely to get anywhere else in New York City—except maybe at someone's home.

You'll find the most beloved Sichuan dishes here such as Tea Smoked Duck, Sliced Eggplant with Garlic Sauce, Bean Curd Sichuan Style, Braised Beef Filets and Napa Cabbage with Roasted Chili, Chengdu Kung Pao Chicken, Stir-Fried Chicken with Spicy Capsicum, Mungbean Noodles with Spicy and Peppery Sauce and Double-Cooked Pork. Every Sichuan restaurant has their own style with these classics, and we find all of the above are just fine here. Perhaps you are looking for something special and not typically served in New York? Definitely try the Lamb with Cumin Sauce for its texture and complex flavor, the Shredded Pork with Spiced Dried Bean Curd for a great balance of tastes,the Smoky Wok Tossed Asian Chili with Garlic Sauce for a superb spicy vegetarian dish, a distinct and delightful soup, the West Lake Beef Chowder. Finally, while you might begin with Dan Dan Noodles, those Mungbean Noodles with Spicy and Peppery Sauce as well as the Diced Rabbit with Sichuan Sauce are unforgettable—try them!

We recommend you visit early and often before this place becomes "discovered" and mobbed with locals and tourists alike. Save yourself the airfare to Chengdu or Chongqing; just eat at Famous Sichuan!
