New Lao Szechuan in Uptown?

I've been twice. First time with daughter for lunch over the holidays. Very good eggplant and signature dry chili chicken stir fry.
Second trip tonight with dh. Complementary start of "Chinese kim chee". Very tasty spicy cabbage... nice and crisp. Seafood hot and sour soup. A bit tame but very tasty. Not at all 'gloppy' like some which are overthickened. MaPo tofu... delish. No pork. Very tasty. Salt and pepper squid. Nice squid but not much flavor. The winner? An appetizer of green beans chopped up with smoked tofu and fermented black beans. Really yummy. Couple next to us had the iconic lamb with cumin and said it was good but 'too oily'. Interested in hearing more reports.
