Unworthy of the name???stick to the original o 39th st.

This is NOT the original Szechuan Gourmet on 39th st., which is a wonderful place, just a pale (and nasty) imitation. The two restaurants may share a name and many of the menu items, but the 56th St. restaurant is a disaster - I work near it, so I was very happy when they opened, and ate there at least 10 times in the hope that they'll get better with time, but they've only gotten worse. The last straw came with a truly sickening dish of prawns, which reeked because they were so past their prime. Yes, they replaced the dish with a grumble, but I was already nauseous. They are unable to follow spicing instructions at all, and on at least one occasion seemed to deliberately spike a dish ordered mild with an absurd amount of chili powder, but that's the least of their problems. They are riding on, and ruining, the sterling reputation of the original restaurant. Avoid at all costs.
