About Us

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.

Very good Chinese food; delivery orders from Grub Hub are speedy (mine have arrived in 30 minutes) I've eaten at several of Tony Hu's places in Chinatown, and in Uptown as well. This spot aims at mid-upscale vibe. The interior space is a combination of modern and Chinese - lots of red light with sleek black. Staff appears to be all under 30 and the patrons are largely young Asians in their 20's & 30's...Maybe Northwestern grad students? Anyway the food itself is well prepared and yummy; Tony Hu knows a thing or two about running a good restaurant. I picked up here recently, just a few days after several of his businesses were raided by the FBI. The place was packed, and the food was still delish.
