Sichuan Impression expanded from the original Alhambra location to Tustin and West LA... so decided to stop by. Twice, actually!
The wait, even with an online waitlist, is ridiculous at dinner, and some things are reported to not be quite as good, such as the water fish. However over two visits, while the line remained insane, the pig ear, spicy pickled cucumber, and toothpick lamb were all good to excellent. A-choy was pretty solid too.
Only disappointment was the stir fried pork intestine, which was quite good, but I think it was deep fried, not stir fried. o_0 Hello grease!
Overall it's not as good as the 626 locations, but considering the convenience, it's more than good enough!
