Very efficient service. Great food. Very generous portions. Friendly atmosphere. Ate there twice in one week whilst in London on business. Good value for money. Would recommend.
As great as always. Food is always very good, service friendly and prompt and everything is reasonably priced. Will keep coming back. Thank you Sichuan
An incredibly good restaurant. Food not the least bit greasy. Most dishes will leave your mouth tingling with a numbing feeling so be warned. Aubergine is cooked more ways than you could imagine. Service superb, even when restaurant is at capacity.
We really enjoyed the food which had that authentic mainland Chinese flavour. My wife who is from Xian always moans about the quality of Chinese food in England but she thoroughly enjoyed the dishes. The beef was particularly flavoursome.
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
Compared from their website, the actual experience exceeded my expectation. My original expectation was only to enjoy authentic Sichuan food as I've always been a fan of Sichuan food, but the restaurant was a lot larger and well decorated than I thought (compared to what I've seen from their website) and service was great. When I arrived at the restaurant, it was filled with Chinese customers which is always a good sign that their food is authentic. I absolutely enjoyed the food and will definitely come again sometime.
The food was delicious, the service was great and the ambience was fun and vibrant. We really enjoyed the restaurant and the whole experience. We will definitely come back again and recommend The Sichuan to anyone who wants authentic delicious sichuanese cuisine.
