Time Out says

Tony Hu’s excellent Lao Sze Chuan, which has several city and suburban locations, opened an Evanston outpost in March. The vibe is similar to the Uptown location, and has a lounge feel, with glowing purple-lighted columns, huge panda photographs and bamboo throughout. The menu is pretty much the same as the other spots, with so many dishes it would take ages to try them all. For total newbies to the restaurant or sze chuan cuisine, start with the Chef’s Recommendation section, which includes a mix of spicy and non-spicy dishes. The chef’s special dry chili chicken, chicken with three chilis and sze chuan string bean are all on the list and a good introduction to the fiery cuisine.
