An “adventurous menu” of “authentic, flavoursome and very Chinese food” – best of all Sichuanese dishes with a real kick – makes this Chinatown spot “well worth a visit”. It has siblings near the university in Oxford Road, in Leeds and York.

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”.

“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!”

For 30 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).
