Summary

It’s “hard to beat the quality of food” at this functional Sichuan/Hunanese canteen near Angel, which raises the bar for “deep, savoury, deliciousness”. Top Tip: “superb cold starters: lotus root is amazing”.

Summary

An “unglamorous, cash-only” operation serving “spectacular Sichuan and Hunanese food” near Angel. “It’s not fancy”“decor is functional”“but that’s part of the charm!”

Summary

“It’s not for the faint-hearted” (“heavy use of chilli”, and “a heavy hand on the oil”), but for an “authentic taste” of “China in N1”, this “brusque” and “basic” Hunanese/Sichuan operation has a certain “utilitarian” charm, and the best results are “sensational”.

Summary

Some detect “a fall from grace” at this “stark” Sichuan three-year-old in Islington; fans still hail its “stunning” cooking, but others are “not sure why it’s had such raves” given its “slow” service and food they say is “awful and way overpriced”.

"Strange place; very good food, bordering on excellent but the restaurant has zero charm and is deserted at lunchtime. Still worth a visit if you like reasonably hot Szechuan food."
