    Good food (but not excellent) and service but a bit disappointing that the lunch special options seem to have vanished from the menu. That said it was still reasonable as an a la carte menu choice for where it is in the city. The person I was treating appreciated the food, particularly the beef he had (which he said was the best he had eaten in a Chinese restaurant). Busy but not too busy so that was great.

    Excellent food, staff is friendly and have good advice on what to eat. Comfortable environment. The Man and Wife offal salad is so damn good, and the auxiliary materials add the needed hot and cold slap to your taste buds.

    Great staff and excellent food and a real pleasure to go to a restaurant in London with such a warm and genuine welcome for customers. Real value for money as well.

    A real hidden gem. Outstanding casual place to eat. Could not fault a single dish, consistently good quality every time I go here. Have been with friends, family and on business.

    I went with a native Chinese and we both agreed that the food was authentic and very good. We found a quiet corner and were pleasantly surprised as to how long we stayed.

    My first time eating but definitely not my last. Excellent service and delicious food. It was a bit noisy as the tables are quite close together but not enough to distract from the food or the conversation

    Such a great restaurant - friendly service and excellent food. It was so good that I returned the very next day to eat here again! The beef black bean was a highlight.

    The food was superb, the prices very reasonable and the service was very good despite the restaurant being very busy as it was lunchtime. I recommend this as a good place for a team lunch.

    Dumplings and salt&pepper tofu were quite nice. The mains (Sichuan Pork Belly and Gong Pow Chicken) very average.

    Nice food and friendly people. Both are much more than I expected. I will go to this restaurant definitely again. Early Monday evening was not very busy. I am not sure when they are busy it could be the same.

    Great food, such a varied menu, so nice to be able to try different dishes. Excellent service as usual. All dishes are delicious and served hot, we shared the main so we could all try something different.

    Amazing Sichuan food and friendly staff to help you negotiate the big menu. The tastiest for my palate were the dishes loaded with tingly Sichuan pepper. I want to go back and try the Sichuan hot pot, as we missed that having indulged in other delights.

    We were in a terrible hurry and there was really fast service and food was immediately on the table. Kudus to kitchen and service. However in the kitchen there was a terrible noise - almost like an old telephone going off every minute - felt like a canteen.

    Tasty, quality ingredients, good service. Portions too generous for me. We had starters and mains and could have shared.

    This authentic Chinese restaurant is superb and fantastic. We tried several traditional sichuan food, though a bit spicy but we really enjoyed it! Strongly recommend!

    Amazing place with some of the most fresh and authentic tasting food

  • David W.1 review

    This is an exceptional restaurant that specializes in Sichuan cuisine. Contrary to many beliefs, this is not always spicy hot! We ordered a good variety of dishes and they were all absolutely fantastic. As we do not live in London, this place is on our priority list when we make the trip. The food is incredible, and over the past decade has actually made us come to London just for their unique dishes.

    Food is good but the portion is quite small. Not crowded at all. Good atmosphere. The service is excellent. Will recommend to whoever likes Chinese food.

    It’s not a fancy restaurant, no plush interior, trickling streams or pan pipe music in the background. But, the food and service were excellent, definitely going back.
