Hai Authentic Szechuan is adding an Alpharetta outpost later this year. Owner Gary Lin has secured a lease for a 2,400-square-foot space, at 5530 Windward Parkway Suite 440. Lin’s restaurant currently operates in Decatur with Chef Wang Hai at the helm, who has previously worked for Peter Chang in Maryland as his partner and regional chef. In a phone interview with What Now Atlanta, Lin said that the opening is expected by December 2020.
The menu at Hai Authentic Szechuan includes sesame chicken, General Tso’s chicken, Mongolian chicken, and lo mein noodles. Lin also said that there are seasonal items that rotate.
Outside of Hai, Lin owns several restaurants in the metro Atlanta area including Urban Wu in Buckhead and Wei in Marietta. All are traditional Szechuan cuisine. Atlanta Magazine a year ago called Lin’s restaurants “legit” Szechuan eateries giving Urban Wu a “very good” rating and Hai a “good”.
