There were so many Japanese restaurants to choose from, we don't even know where to begin. At last I saw Grand Sichuan. Yes, I know it's not a Japanese restaurant :P However, I have been reading some very good reviews about that place, so we decided to give it a try. It's located just above Red Mango, on the second floor. I guess if you don't look hard enough, you might miss it.
At the end of the meal, we were given some complimentary slices of navel oranges, a fortune cookie and wet towel each. Overall, it was a pretty good lunch. A tad bit more expensive than the typical Chinese restaurant you can find in Chinatown, but the taste and quality of the food makes up for it. If you are a fan of Sichuan cooking, this is the place for you.
