Szechuan Gourmet

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.

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!
