superb. the restaurant is a class act with great cooking.
I was so happy to find Chinese food as authentic as this, having lived in China for a couple of years in the past. I've found it surprisingly hard to find the good stuff in London, but The Sichuan is the real deal! I only tried the chef's special fish (whole roasted fish) on my first visit, but since it was SO good I will definitely be returning soon to see if the rest of the menu stacks up. Great value for money, the service was great (all the staff were super friendly), couldn't recommend this place more.
Birthday lunch with friends, Great food and service, nice and relaxed.
Service was efficient and friendly. The food was really delicious. Better to have a larger group so that more dishes can be sampled. Will go again!
Family dinner at our old favourite. The Sichuan never disappoints. Beautifully executed Sichuan classics pack a punch; flavours are complex but chilli levels vary. You can go for less spicy dishes if you want (just don’t order the ‘Chinese takeaway classics’ - to do so would be a shame). It’s a good idea to come with a few friends so you can try more dishes - portions are large. Don’t miss the hand torn cabbage with pork belly, beef jerky, the green beans with minced pork, the whole grilled
We really enjoyed our meal at The Sichuan. The food was really great and the waitress was very friendly and efficient. The salt and pepper soft shell crabs and the hand torn aubergine salad were delicious and we enjoyed the house speciality of grilled fish. With many other exciting and interesting looking dishes on the menu, we'll definitely be back. Very good value for this part of town too.
The Sichuan is a brilliant show case of one of China's most interesting cuisines in the heart of London. If you have never tried the deliciously numbing effect of Sichuan peppercorns before you really must! I took a colleague who claimed not to like Chinese food and she loved it, realising that what she didn't like was the English sweet sticky Chinese. Go go go!!
Authentic Sichuan flavours - good combination of 'la' (hot) and 'ma' (numbing). The pigs ears in chili oil starter was excellent, but no Sichuan pickles available even though on the menu, which was a shame. The shuizhu niurou (beef in spicy sauce) was excellent but maybe had a little too much potato starch thickener and would have been better a little looser and a little more oily. The laziji (chicken in chilis) was battered, which you see in Sichuan restaurants in the UK (red chili, for example), but not really in China itself, where the chicken is cooked without batter - that makes the dish lighter and better in my view. Dan dan mian noodles and shaochou dumplings were both good - noodles slightly over-cooked, but that's being fussy. Overall, good Sichuan flavours that made me think of Chengdu and restaurants like Longshaochou and the now closed Chengdu Canting.
Excellent attentive service, all staff polite and helpful, great choice of dishes on the menu to suit all tastes, great value for money. Vsited The Sichuan approximately four times in last two weeks during lunch hour and would never tire of visiting due to great choice of food on offer
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!
