Order right on time (a concern given other reviews). Food delicious. My only complaint: menu doesn't give much if any description of dishes. Thus, I had no way of knowing that szechuan string beans were flavored with shrimp. (Something a family member is allergic to.)

The Chinatown location is so so much better than the one on Michigan Ave. We won't order from Michigan anymore. With Chinatown the spice level is perfect. The chicken crispy and there's sauce in the bottom of the container.

Their mapo tofu is the best. It's super saucy and comforting. I also love their garlic eggplant, which is also super saucy with beautiful purple eggplant. They were on time and found the place easily.

I always get Tony's 3 Chili Chicken and it is always amazing. I can't even eat at the Chinese restaurants near my house anymore because Lao Sze Chuan has caused me to raise my standards. Yum!

One of the absolute best delivery experiences we have had. Food was insanely hot and crazy delicious. Extra spicy was actually spicy. We will definitely be ordering from here regularly

Opened in 1998, Lao Sze Chuan has become the most beloved Chinese restaurant for Chicagoans, and gradually gained its reputation by providing the authentic Sichuan cuisine with high quality materials and ingredients. In 1999, Lao Sze Chuan was recognized by Chicago Tribune as "One of the Best" and received a "three fork" ranking, which was a very high award for Chinese restaurants at that time. "One Style For One dish, a hundred dishes have a hundred different taste", that's what some of our frequent customers said keeps them coming back. At the present, Lao Sze Chuan has many special Grade A chefs who are from Sze Chuan China, to provide customers the most authentic tasting food. As the best representation of Chinese food, Lao Sze Chuan has been named the Best Chinese Restaurant in Chicago by the main stream food columns.
