“Nobody comes for the decor or service” when choosing this Chinese canteen near Angel, which has “zero charm”, to the extent some find it “a strange place”. But it’s definitely “worth a visit”, so long as you “stick to Hunanese and Sichuan dishes in which they specialise – spicy and challenging but very good”.

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”.

For 31 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).
