Been here perhaps 40 times over the years. Always good food, good value and good service. Have a great fresh fish dish which sometimes you have to ask for - but it's worth asking for! Go. Enjoy.

From fake fish in the hot and sour seafood soup for two, to smaller portion on the main course- Firecracker Beef- and beyond, this was so disappointing we may never return. That was not the limit of our disappointment at this restaurant- we only ate a small amount of our soup and requested the remainder to be packaged to bring home for a teenager (obviously enough remaining for a teenager to enjoy) and when seeing the tiniest container they had, with obviously much of our soup thrown away, we questioned why they did not give us all of the soup...the waiter then proceeded to bring out a little bowl- less than 1/2 the size that the soup for two was served in - to try to demonstrate that he did not cheat us. Unbelievable. To top this, we both had illness that night, with frequent waking and trips to the bathroom. We shared the entire meal- we are friends and do not live together, so it was obviously their food that made us both ill. What has happened to both the food and integrity of this restauant is beyond me. Loosing 2 pounds over night is not my idea of a good restaurant, and neither is fake fish in the soup. I no longer recommend this restaurant.

Whether ordering take-out or dining in, the quality of food from Chengdu is very good. The food is always piping hot and in good sized quantities. We have never had a problem getting a seat when dining in and the wait for take-out never exceeds 15-20 minutes (unless there is a power outage in town). One of the better Chinese restaurants in town.

Chinese food is not difficult to find in West Hartford. A new Chinese restarurant seems to spring up every month. Good Chinese food, however, is limited to just a few places and Chengdu is the best of them. Nicest decor of any Chinese restaurant in the area, although the bar is a little tacky. I eat here or get takeout from here at least once a month. Individual dishes are $1 or so more than what you might expect to pay in a typical Chinese eatery, but still very affordable and the quality is much better. Excellent service, too.

Good Chinese, not badly priced
