I'm a huge fan of all Asian food, especially chinese. I've walked past this place and wanted to try it for a while. Looks shabby on the outside but the food is great!! We ordered 9-10 dishes and all were very very good!! The deep fried prawn starter and beef in black bean sauce were my favourite. Don't go here... More

Extensive menu. Super quick to bring food to the table. Loved everyone of the 9 dishes we ordered. The beef with black beans and the short ribs with garlic were the best by far. The fried prawns were excellent as well. This is a new favorite. We'll be back!

Didn't want to eat in O2 & found it by accident. Had the set menu Bar £19.95/person a bit boring I know but it was tasty & great value for money. The service needed at least one extra person but the food came out quickly enough. The beans with chilli oil/ paste were great & the chilli prawns were good.... More

This little Chinese cafe style restaurant doesn't look much on the outside but it well worth trying out. The dishes that we tried were all excellent and generous sized portions. Be careful not to over-order! The beef with chillies coriander and cumin was excellent, as was the fried beans and aubergine.

Very glad to eat in this place again, the food is amazing. I visited last Sunday and Monday lunch. Ordered the Szechuan Pork and rice. Very well balanced flavours. The next day I ordered a spicy pork soup with homemade noodles. The food was amazing. It is very rare to find a Chinese restaurant in London with such a talented... More

A very large menu with many genuine sechuan cuisine items, filled with people who seem to know and love it. We have returned many times.

I lived in Chengdu for a while and loved this streetfood dish. I yearned for it now I'm back in London and so looked up restaurants. This place seemed to have good reviews and so spent over an hour on buses getting there. What a disappointment. I ordered it and when it arrived I was disappointed by the portion size!... More

My partner taught in provincial China for a year and during that time became familiar with the Chinese "hot pot", which is a fondue-style meal shared by diners at one table. We visited Little Szechuan last night and had the hot pot, which I had never tried before. It was amazing and the quantities vast - it was really too... More

This is an amazing Chinese restaurant hidden on finchley Road where you wouldn't expect to find a place of this quality. From the outside it looks fairly average but their food is generally top notch. Try the BBQ, and also the fish in chilli oil.
