Service – South Legend had fair service. You pretty much have to hail the waiters to get most things done, especially when they are busy.
Verdict – South Legend serves up decent spicy Sichuan Chinese dishes. This restaurant is a good bet if you’re looking for some heat, and are located near by.

South Legend Signature Dishes – Boiled Fish, Couple’s Delight, Chong Qing fish fillet with Chili.

South Legend’s Menu features a wide variety of dishes, but we would stick to the Sichuan ones and avoid Americanized dishes.

South Legend Food Picks:

South Legend Milpitas boiled fish

Boiled fish fillet in a fiery sauce ($10) was spicy and decent, but included some fair fish in a heavy gravy. Overcooked peppercorns.

South Legend Milpitas green beans

Dry fried Long Bean ($7.75) were done just fine. Fresh, cooked till firm.

South Legend Milpitas spicy cold jello

Spicy Sichuan Rice Jello ($5.50) was pretty firey. Nice blend of cool and hot.

South Legend Milpitas cumin lamb

Cumin Lamb ($11.25) was in gravy, unusual for this dish. Not bad, lots of fat, and not too much spice.

South Legend Milpitas sweet and sour pork

Sweet and Sour Pork ($8.95) was surprisingly decent. Egg-less batter. Freshly fried, leftovers were dismal.

South Legend Milpitas pork rib noodle soup

Pork Rib Noodle Soup ($6) satisfied our need for noodles. Decent broth too.

OK: (Order if you like this dish)

Pans: (We would not reorder these dishes)
