Is it convenient for parking if I arrive at 8 p.m.? I have come here twice but both were in the daytime.

Yes, plenty of parking

What's the difference between this Chengdu Taste and the one down the street?

The old one is better. Lol

Are uou open on Christmas

Good question. If they're not, you'd have dozens of other options in the area.

Do they have vegetarian options?

Yes

Get the fried rice. It’s the best. Also kung pao chicken is one of my favorites. I visit this restaurant almost every time I come to LA.

This is the worst Chinese food I’ve ever had!!! The rabbit dish was full of small bones. The ginger beef dish was so hot it was inedible and all the sauce was pure chili oil. No flavor, just heat. Fast food places like Panda Express is heads and tails better than this place! God awful! What a waste of money. Never again!

Really spicy for me. I needed lots of rice and water to wash it down! My favorite dish was the Tofu with Peas!

We enjoy hanging out. Last night we arrived in this fine place which we didn’t know before. We enjoyed a lovely evening there with very good dishes and an experienced crew and an impressive cook. We added this restaurant in our list and we will definitely return soon. We warmly recommend.

Ohhh all those Sichuan peppercorns swimming in the broth of the green chili boiled fish, mouth-numbing citrusy juniper aroma. So good and so unique. The cold garlic noodles were perfect to cool off the fire but some other patrons were drinking yogurt. Whatever helps you enjoy the spicy and yet bursting in flavor dishes. We ordered the green beans (amazing), toothpick lamb (amazing), and the incredible boiled fish with all the Sichuan peppers your mouth can handle.

Was told by my Chinese friend and his friend that this is the most authentic Sichuan restaurant in town, and I believe them. The signature green pepper sauce is exquisite and is like nothing I've had before, thought definitely not for the light of heart!

Was so excited to try this place that I took myself out to lunch. Worth it for the leftovers! Every other table had at least four people, which seems like more of an ideal scenario because you get more things! Stuck with two simple dishes and they are both must-gets!Toothpick lamb- little bit of fat and a small amount of crisp. A whole lot of spice. Never had anything like it- in short, it was fantastic! (Side note, it makes an excellent leftover!)Dan Dan noodles here are very peanut-y. If you like pad Thai, you will like this version. Enjoyed the simplicity but uncompromising flavor of this dish.I need to remember to order mild spicy! It was a lot for me to handle ::foodsweats::Will return to try it all again at a slightly lower spice level.... rookie mistake

Decent place for some spicy Szechuan food. Highly recommend the boiled fish in spicy sauce. The toothpick lamb is also pretty good but some of the meat was a bit hard. The spicy wonton dish was not spicy at all, actually kind of sweet, I remember it being much more spicy in the past.

Best spicy Chinese food in California...so yum! It could be even better if they serve alcohol. Because the food were spicy, I needed cold beer.

I ordered Ubereats from this restaurant and it was amazing!! The portion is humongous! Food is delicious. Not crazy salty like normal Chinese restaurants. They have very good prices as well. Highly recommend.

The food here is so good! Yes, they have spicy food. But it's also quite delicious. Their fried rice is also pretty good even though it's not spicy. You can ask them to make something not so spicy if you want to. The quality is excellent, and so is the service! I'm surprised to see how many non-chinese there were eating there. The spicy fish and lamb barbecue sticks quite good. So is the Chengdu fried rice.

The service attitude of the staff here is very poor. They do n’t know the expression of smiling, love to eat, or to get rid of, or even hear what they are saying. If you want to buy twenty dollars of food here, I suggest you bring good cash, because here It's not enough to receive only 19 yuan, nine nine dollars and nine dollars in cash for less than twenty dollars. I hope the boss can train the quality of employees and not sell food to passers-by. Will not come again

Long wait but it’s very delicious! Tips #1 you can join the waitlist on yelp to save your wait time in store. Tips #2 the plate size is very big! Be aware of this especially if you are just visitor to LA.

Genuine Chengdu food. Place is small. Had to share a table with someone else. But food and service are good. Not much choice of non spicy food. Love the majiang deco :)

The food was okay. It was spicy which I like but it wasn't overly spicy. Had 8 dishes and was only really fond of the eggplant and toothpick lamb. The rest were just okay.

last night was the first time we went to this magnificent restaurant. But It is no doubt not the last time. We passed a splendid evening with the courteous service, with the high quality food and wine and with the honest charge. We will absolutely go back there soon.

Spicy and amazing. Expect to stand in line but the wait is more than worth it. Order the toothpick lamb. Tan tan noodles vary in flavor and heat but don’t disappoint. The pork crura is great as well. The water boiled fish here is top notch

We were craving spicy food and this is the winner. We had toothpick lamb with cumin, flourless pork belly and crispy shrimps with ground pork french fries. It is really delicious. The pork belly was just ok but the other 2 dishes was a hit. We will have to try the other dishes next time.

5 star for the food. Have to say, as a Chinese myself, the food is authentic Szechuan. Just thinking about it now makes my mouth water. The price is reasonable, and the serving of the dishes is big. 3 Star for the service. The service is fast and is minimally satisfactory but is nowhere near good. The service staffs seem to be very stressed out and would not bother ask you how the food is or at least take your order with a smile. Also, sometimes the chef forget to put some side ingredients and you’ll have to tell the service staffs ASAP, or they will argue with you and say you just ate them. Overall: 4 stars.

Really good. The Toothpick Lamb was a surprise and a highlight. It was very tasty, well seasoned and a delight because I don't usually order lamb at many places. The Boiled Beef in Hot Sauce was the main reason for our visit and was really good. We were actually expecting it to be spicier but that's okay because it was so good. We also ordered the Sauteed String Beans which I would highly recommend. Spicy and good flavors. I also ordered the Twice Cooked Pork Fried Rice which was awesome.
