“Authentic Sichuan cuisine”

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 and won “Bib Gourmand” award from Michelin Guide for year 2012 & 2013.

Great, authentic Sichuan food! Price and service are reasonable. The dan dan noodles and pot dishes are very good and reminded me of those dishes I've had in Sichuan province. Oftentimes, Sichuan restaurants have a difficult time getting the noodle and pot dish right, but they nailed it!

The name Tony Hu is synonymous with consistently stellar Chinese cuisine at restaurants all across the city. At Lao Sze Chuan, scarf down an array of regional dumplings (Peking, Chengdu), both fried and steamed. A dunk in Lao's chile oil kicks things up.
