Birthday dinner at Grand Sichuan Midtown...what are their strengths?

I_<3_NYC_FOOD | Nov 30, 2004 12:17 AM

I will be going tomorrow night to Grand Sichuan Midtown for the first time tomorrow. It is my birthday celebration, so I will be going with a group of 5 or so friends. Are there any dishes in particular that are not to be missed? I understand the chinese-american food should be avoided and we should stick with the more authentic chinese dishes, is that right?
I saw the menu on, and the smoked tea duck sounds interesting. Anybody had that before?
How are portion sizes? Should we order some appetizers to share before the mains, or would that be too much food? How are their desserts? I would just like to have a nice variety of things to share that we would all enjoy.
Also, is the restaurant cash-only, or do they take credit cards? Do they take reservations? Should I make reservations if my group will be about 6 or 7 people?
Sorry about all the questions. I have searched a little bit about this place, but still find myself seeking all to the additional information I can get. Any and all help/suggestions are greatly appreciated.
