Summary

“Wonderful, spicy” Sichuan cooking, “shabby” surroundings and “authentic service-without-a-smile” – make an outing to this “very low dive” in Bloomsbury a “fun” culinary treat. “The unremarkable exterior does not prepare you for some of the most genuine food ever” and “you’ll leave with perfectly tingling pepper-and-chilli lips”.

“Wonderfully spicy” Sichuan cooking is the reason to discover this “brilliant find in Bloomsbury”. Forget the “plain” surroundings and the “hit-and-miss service”: “you can put up with all that to eat such fantastic dishes!”

Summary

“The really interesting, Sichuan ‘nose to tail’ food will take your breath away (literally!)”, at this Bloomsbury dive, and “makes it worth enduring the very offhand service”; (“order less than you think, as portions are huge”!)
