This is one of our favorite restaurants. Roger has made many meetup's here, for Sunday Brunch and Dim Sum. I say let's go there and enjoy a night of HEAT and great FLAVOR.

As their website say's:" We are considered one of the best, if not the best, Szechuan restaurant in Atlanta. Some of our honorable mentions include "Best of Atlanta" by Atlanta Magazine (2011), The Atlanta 50 by the AJC (2013), and Eater 38 (2013).

​We invite you to come and experience authentic Szechuan food. We strive to provide nutritional and tasty Authentic Szechuan cuisine by using only quality ingredients while providing guests with prompt, professional, friendly and courteous service. We maintain a clean, comfortable and well maintained establishment so our customers can enjoy their dining experience."

If you don't like it too hot come along as we can order family style and have a mix of plates that you can enjoy without peeling the skin off the inside of your mouth. If you don't believe me read the reviews below. Get there early or on time or we will start another Spanish Inquisition...

"The Zhong Style Dumplings are hands down the best I've ever had. The sauce is unique and the dumplings melt in your mouth. I challenge you to find some better dumplings."

"The tea-smoked duck tasted and felt like it was made with lots of hands-on attention. That went for the entire meal, all of the servers were top-notch and all of the food was very good."

"The Chengdu Noodles, along with the wontons we tried were very spicy, but in a good way where even though my mouth was numb and my eyes were watering, I could not stop eating the delicious food that was in front of me."
