“The hot pots are exceptional… some of which are very hot!”, according to fans of this “great Sichuanese”. “It’s not the most attractive restaurant, but the food makes a trip well worth it!”

“The very good traditional Sichuan food” at this Brick Lane canteen makes a trip “way better than a visit to Chinatown”. Conditions are “pretty basic”, but staff are “very helpful to newcomers to the cuisine”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
