More about The Sichuan, London

A righteous amount of fuss has been made about the defection of leading Sichuanese chef Zhang Xiao Zhong from HuTong in The Shard to Islington’s The Sichuan. Zhang is a peerless talent when it comes to the famously spicy cuisine that originated in his hometown of Chengdu. He himself is from a long line of celebrated chefs, and has proved his own merits over a decades-long career that has seen him showered with awards and prestigious appointments around the world. Now that he is ensconced at The Sichuan, whose premises down the City Road stretch if Islington match Zhang’s high calibre Chinese cuisine with a luxurious sense of Far Eastern style, it’s time you made a booking to experience Sichuanese cuisine at its very best.

Islington locals and City of London workers know that a good time to catch a table at The Sichuan is at lunchtime. And we don’t mean it’s not busy – given the quality of the Chinese cuisine on offer here it reliably is at all times – but rather that you can experience the power of chef Zhang’s Sichuanese cookery for a great price thanks to the restaurant's lunchtime lunch sets. Grab a mixed dim sum platter, the humorously titled Numb and Spicy Wontons, or the so-called Legendary Sichuan Dan Dan Noodles. Perhaps the best way to experience The Sichuan is to hire the large function room and have a banquet, but even a la carte dining, with views out over the canal, is an experience that’s hard to match no matter how hard you scour the city.

Considering it is Chinese New Year we did understand that the service may be slower than normal which is fine so well done still on service it was super busy. The food was AMAZING, great flavours and felt very authentic in comparison to most Chinese's in the UK. Would highly recommended if you want to taste real flavours rather than just a fried salty taste you would expect from other restaurants/takeaways. I had C3. ‘Gong Bao’ Prawn on Rice (contain hazel nuts) and the C7. Braised Beef Brisket on Rice, both were very yummy!
