Time Out says

Flushing’s Chinatown eateries tend to skew to two extremes: They’re either fluorescent-lit canteens or Hong Kong–style palaces of glitz. Szechuan Gourmet is an exception—a quiet spot, located on a side street, serving mainland Chinese cuisine that bears little resemblance to Americanized “Szechuan” fare. Outstanding choices include peppery minced pork with cellophane noodles, garlic-bathed deep-fried chicken with chili, and ginger-sweetened crisp fried sea bass—an almost greaseless accomplishment.

Since Flushing is an International tourist destination, you should visit SG for authentic Sichuan dishes, executed with care and speed. This is not your Manhattan "Wo Hop" Chinese food experience; this is the affordable, real-deal  Flushing version for natives who know better.

Most of all...come hungry.  The service is swift, the portions are generous and the vibe is all about authentic Asian flavors. Hand-drawn noodles, piquant spices and appetizers that are worth sampling.  Perfect for a Thursday nigh with another couple; very crowded on weekend evenings.


Delicious food and massive portions.  We were seated immediately and the whole place smelt delicious as soon as we walked in.  Food was delivered quickly.  The appetisers were ok, the main courses were delicious and so big we really didn't need to have ordered anything else! Great little find in an area filled with cheap chains and awful food!
