Its name may be generic, but Szechuan Gourmet is anything but ordinary. This Flushing eatery is the antithesis of stuck-in-the-eighties Szechuan chains that proffer limp sesame noodles and lame hot and sour soup. While its menu caters to local tastes, the restaurant has made an atypical-for-Chinatown attempt at atmosphere: Soft lighting, decorative red paper lanterns and damask-cushioned chairs invite diners to savor the outstanding food. The peppery minced pork with clear noodles could be one of Queens best noodle recipes. Dishes are generously spiced, but tender sea bass in a honeyed-ginger sauce banks the fires of red-chili-blanketed fried chicken chunks or garlicky pork.

Recommended Dishes

Minced pork with clear noodle, $6.95; deep-fried diced chicken with chili peppers, $8.95; sweet and sour crispy seabass, $16.95
