Summary

A “nicely authentic” Chinatown establishment – part of a four-strong northern chain – where they don’t damp down the Beijing and Sichuanese food, be it red-hot gong bao chicken or using more adventurous cuts; add in “extremely efficient” staff and it’s reliably “busy”.

Summary

“The hottest gong bao chicken this side of Chengdu” and “delights such as pigs’ intestines and other anatomically less salubrious bits” star at this “excellent value” Sichuanese, which “is one of the more authentic options in Chinatown”. “I have not had a better Chinese meal for some time and it cost just under £20!”
