Time Out says

Sichuan restaurants and eateries are a dime a dozen in Chinatown, but none are as popular as Old Chengdu Sichuan Cuisine Restaurant along Pagoda Street. Incepted in 2007, this family-run restaurant shot to fame after it was featured by international media CCTV4 for serving authentic Sichuan cuisine. Since then, you’ll notice snaking queues on both weekdays and weekends. If you manage to score a table, be sure to try some of their signature dishes like the double boiled fish (from $36), featuring fresh slices of fish served in a ‘mala’ base of chicken broth, chilli oil and Sichuan peppers; and the frogs in pickled chilli ($28.50), boasting succulent, firm and flavourful frog meat. Diners who like variety will appreciate that the restaurant offers a wide variety of dishes ranging from cold dishes like beef tripe in chilli oil ($21.80) to meats like mala beef fillet ($28.50) and fresh seafood including mala crayfish ($31.80) and spicy crab ($61.80).
