Mason >Sichuan Bistro
Simply great food...authentic Sichuan.
I worked in China for several years and many of my business trips took me to the rural areas of Sichuan province where I fell in love with the hot, flavorful food of the region.
When I came back to Cincinnati I lamented ever finding that kind of exotic food again. Luckily, some of my friends from China told my about this place.
Simply put, the food is very authentic, the best Sichuan I've had since l left China...including several restaurants in New York.
I have always found the service to be more than adequate since going there is an event to be savored, so a little extra time is welcomed.
The only complaints...We have to wait for tables from time to time (maybe the expansion will remedy this), and , on occasion they've run out of cold beer...which is a problem when you are eating some of the more spicy dishes.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is willing to experience something fantastic!
Very good Chinese food. This is a great place to get good Chinese Food. Pass on the boring American Chinese menu and go straight for the authentic Chinese menu. I would have to say that this is about as authentic as you can get for being located in Mason, OH. Every time my wife and I go to this restaurant it is packed, mostly by the Chinese community. Sometimes they do give preferential treatment to their Chinese customers and it sucks but it happens and isn't that big of a deal b/c the food is well worth it. You can tell it is a typical Chinese restaurant operation when you walk in. Don't let the disorganization frustrate you b/c it will. Things are done a little backwards but it is a very easygoing way of service. No major complaints with the food as much as the cleanliness of the walls by some of the tables and the floor. I would recommend getting rid of the nasty carpet and clean up the walls a bit in some of those areas while you are already adding on. Stand out from the rest of the other Chinese restaurants. I was shocked when I used the restroom to wash may hands and it actually looked clean. I give you props for that.
