      Can't speak for Szechuan Gourmet in Flushing. My one meal at that location was underwhelming but I love the Manhattan outpost.

      Spicy & Tasty has lunch specials and the food is first rate. Here's the menu -

        Spicy and Tasty lunch specials are great, eat there or get it to go often. They have the shrimp and turnips on it, which is my favorite dish. It's good to get the lunch special and then split a cold app, and they will also bring you another little cold app with the special, and soup, which I don't like there.

          SG in Flushing has to cope with the rating of its Midtown outpost, which is unfair. The place is not bad at all: it is simply outshined by the stellar selection of Sichuan restaurants in Flushing. In particular, I would recommend their whole fish with black beans, something virtually non-existent in their Manhattan branch (and not recommended ;) either, because the fish is too dry). But in Flushing... I think both Xiao La Jiao and Cheng Du Tian Fu beat them quite easily. Spicy & Tasty does not, IMHO, but it has a wider selection.

          Just go to Chengdu Heaven. Their whole menu's a few dollars cheaper and the portions are enormous so it's not hard to arrange a lunch. Ma la tom and a ma po do fu with one portion rice is basically enough to kill a horse. You can off a small elephant if you toss the pork tripe with chilli oil and mung bean jelly onto the order.

          I think they've even translated their menu now.

            Szechuan Gourmet does have lunch specials ($5-6) and the last time I was there they were excellent.
