We went to this restaurant after seeing some good reviews and decided to try it. We were extremely hungry so ordered dumplings. They were very good. My daughter was not quite ready to order when the other three of us were but placed her order fairly quickly after us. She ordered Chicken Lo Mein - my husband had ordered pork... More

Visited friends in NYC for the NY Time Travel Show and agreed on Chinese food for dinner. Disappointed to learn that so many of the Chinese restaurants in the West Village, including some of our favorites, closed the past few years, but agreed on Grand Sichuan. Huge disappointment in the vegetarian department. The scallion pancaked were obviously reheated and mushy... More

I love trying new foods and really enjoyed the variety of dishes that were ordered! Our 3 appetizers were delivered in succession, permitting us to enjoy each one before the remaining dishes arrived. Tasty, tangy, and plentiful - more than enough for our large group.

This is one of the oldest authentic Sichuan restaurants in Manhattan. The food is still as good and the prices as reasonable as twenty years ago. We ordered the whole steamed fish, spicy chicken, lamb and vegetable dishes plus fried rice. All came to only $67, very inexpensive for Manhattan. My parents, who lived in China for many years, agreed... More

The food was so good. We had pork soup dumplings and they were the best we have ever had. Generous filling and no gristle! We also had the eggplant with garlic sauce and pork. Amazing sauce, dark and thick and so good! Yes, the staff is not very friendly but so what. The food came in a very timely fashion... More

Nothing special , just another Chinese restaurant on a good location, our duck and lamp where overly fried and dried! They even forgot one of our dishes till we finished and removed from our bill with hesitation, The waitress weren't friendly or caring at all, and for this type of lousy service we decided they don't deserve the proper amount...

We have been here three times in six months attracted by power of taste of their food. Dan Dan noodles and sesame Tofu can be easy favorites.

Grand Sichuan International - Chelsea is a typical New York neighborhood restaurant. They have an excellent lunch special, as I have already said. The atmosphere is a bit lacking in charm and depending on when one comes, the staff can be friendly or sultry. The food, however is good and is a good value for the money. I usually go... More

Grand Sichuan is just okay in the realm of Chinese food in NYC. It’s not gourmet for sure and the resturant isn’t fancy by any means. But, for a heaping helping of Chindese dishses, this is the place to go. The service is good, not neccesarily friendly and the place is really busy with take out orders – so if... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
