I've just recently heard about China Village in Albany. I love hot and spicy food and live nearby so I've got to try it. I've seen in other posts that there've been changes in the staff that affected the quality of the Sichuan dishes. Would love to hear which of the Sichuan menu items are still reliably excellent, like the Village Special Lamb I saw mentioned in another thread.
Also, any other top-drawer Sichuan spots in the Berkeley/Albany area?
