“One of Soho’s best” – the Sichuan food in this well-known café is “first-rate”“really spicy and delicious”. Much of the menu is not for the faint-hearted, but “it’s always possible to avoid overly hot dishes with the aid of the helpful staff”.

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).
