    Excellent Chinese restaurant. The food was great at reasonable prices, the services was attentive without out being intrusive. I booked a table for 2 on spec as I needed to find a place quickly for dinner and was very pleased with my experience. It is certainly a restaurant I will go back to.

    This is one of those places that you REALLY don't want to share the good feedback about because it will become too busy! But I have to be honest and say that the food, service and prices make it an absolute gem in the City. Please don't visit!

    I have been a couple of times at The Sichuan 5 or 7 years ago,at that time enjoyed tge food and thought it was a lovely Chinese restaurant. The food was 100 % delicious,this year decided to take my friends there for new years eve. I was curious to see if the food was still the same,after so many years. Sure enough it was amazing,my friends and I enjoyed the food and the service was good too. Thank you to the chief at the Sichuan for cooking so well and thanks to the waiters for a great service. Happy New year 2024

    Best Sichuan restaurant in London and quite possibly the best Chinese too. Have eaten here several times and the food is always excellent with lots of interesting choices. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the place is always buzzy and busy

    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.

    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.

    Great food, very authentic, nice and spicy and brought back fond memories of our time in Asia. Service was very good also with good options for kids who don't like it spicy.

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