A pretty decent place for Sichuan Chinese. Pros: the cold noodle appetizdishes are excellent. The eggplant is very good as well. Cons: I just got the wrong main dish. I got the old Sichuan chicken, thinking it sounded pretty authentic, but which came out fried. The taste was not bad. The spices were pretty good, but just not flavorful enough... More

The best Chinese food in America. Spicy and delicious food. Would recommend this to everyone as it is the best food I ever had. We were there for 3 days and we went there thrice.

As expected, Szechuan food is usually oily but they have great fish dishes especially the fried fish with tofu in a special sauce. Service is good.

Sichuan Gourmet is a very good place to go for either a week night when you want something different than your usual home cooked meals or meeting up with friends. The service is amazing and the food is even better, my favourite dish would be the spicy hot cayenne pepper tofu,fish,or chicken. Sichuan Gourmet is a very good local Chinese... More

We enjoyed the authentic Sichuan food in all Sichuan Goumet locations for years - but can't anymore. The recent visit to Framingham location was surprisingly bad - the "ma-la" taste is gone, only left with the taste of chilly power. Has the chef left? Or they run out the prickly ash (Sichuan numbing pepper)? Very disappointed.

Went mid afternoon on a weekday. Excellent Sichuan and Kung Pao chicken. Very spicy and cooked just right. Waitress was difficult to understand and she was also very authoritative. Didn't feel comfortable asking her to repeat her answers repeatedly so we gave up trying to understand. Tea was schorching hot - burned my fingers trying to pick up the cup.... More

I ate here 2x in the same week with friends who were visiting. From out of town. Once for dinner and once for lunch. For dinner we had scallion pancakes, spicy cucumber with garlic (yum!!), wudon seafood noodles, and scallops in Cheng du sauce (lots of scallops with broccoli and bell peppers) the scallop sauce could have been more flavorful-...

Chinese is Chinese until you come here. There are a lot of good places in Framingham, but this one offers options you can't find elsewhere. The amount of whole fish is outstanding, the scallops, the cold appetizer of cucumber in spicy sauce with garlic. I honestly haven't been here since it was a Thai place decades ago, but I am...
