* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“Authentic and very tasty Sichuan cooking” is served “in basic surroundings” at this Lace Market operation, which is reassuringly popular with Chinese (around 80% of the clientele, apparently), as well as students and – better for PR – even the odd Times food critic.
