I ate at China Village tonight in Albany/Berkeley and it was by far, the best szechuan I have ever had. There was nothing wrong with the meal and they don't dumb their very spicy dishes down for you just because you are not chinese. The meal was perfect, that's all I can say. I got the szechuan I'd been looking for. I asked for spicy and they gave me what I was asking for. If you ask them to suggest dishes it helps, and they're really helpful. I'll be going back again many times.
Feel free to comment and give suggestions of things to try at China Village.
