Turning up the heat on London’s Finchley Road is Little Sichuan, a family-run restaurant bringing the best of western Chinese regional cuisine to hungry locals. Chef Yan Ling and his wife Zhen Jun are enthusiastic about sharing the flavour-packed specialties of their homeland to West Hampstead locals and foodies from all over the city who make the journey to Little Sichuan for a taste of the restaurant’s truly authentic cuisine. A must-visit for Asian spice lovers!
Sichuan cuisine is known throughout the world for its spicy dishes, often featuring the fruity, unique sichuan peppercorn (Chinese coriander). While Sichuan cuisine has earned a reputation for being spicy, the sichuan peppercorn provides more of a light, tingly sensation that makes it suitable for milder palates. At Little Sichuan on London’s Finchley Road (close to Finchley Road & Frognal station in West Hampstead) guests can taste this delightful ingredient in a number of dishes, ranging from the mildest mild to the hottest of the hot.
London’s Little Sichuan provides West Hampstead residents a taste of western China in a lovely environment. We recommend visiting for the affordable all-you-can-eat hot pot special during lunch and dinner to sample as many ingredients as possible including king prawn, baby squid, black fungi, lotus roots, fried tofu, and many more. Try some of the chef’s favourites like poached fish in hot sichuan pepper oil, minced pork and pak choi dumplings, or chicken and peanuts in chilli sauce. Reservations are a must for this Finchley Road foodie hangout!
