I am very worried about my health after I saw the toilets and the bar condition. garbage bags in the public areas an open bottles of cleaning liquids in the bathroom could be very dangerous and probably not legal. The food was good but I really prefer don't think about the kitchen condition. I wont repeat.

THE WORST FOOD WE HAVE EVER TASTED. Honestly just don't do it to yourself if you're even thinking of eating here. Hot and sour soup (brown tasteless jelly soup) wasn't remotely hot or sour, in fact it just had no taste whatsoever, then after one mouthful we left that and then the duck and pancakes came... literally the driest thing...

Not bad, not great, just average to be quite frank. Spicy chicken riddled with bones and tons of chillies. Other dishes ok. Lamb a bit fatty though. Toilets are filthy which begs the question what's it like behind the scenes in the kitchen/prep area? Suspect you don't see this at night if you're half cut but it's there to see... More

This place is great if you love Szechuan food and doesn't have the sweet gloop that you sometimes get in other Chinese places. The food is pretty spicy though (so if you can't handle hot stuff, you might prefer somewhere else). Overall, great food, good service and reasonably priced.

Visited 6.30pm on a not very busy Wednesday: There's no doubting the authentic food here (I've visited Beijing, Shanghai, Harbin and tons of other Chinese cities), the flavours and menu options are an absolute joy, and the Hotpot is 'Bang on Beijing'. Superb. The service here though is shoddy and slapdash to say the least. Inattentive and snappy staff. We... More

Called by chance whilst in Manchester and as it was only 5pm the restaurant was empty. However we ordered and whilst we were waiting for our meal several people started to arrive. Two drinks, 3 starters to share,two mains and two coffees cost £50. Not the cheapest but really good food with excellent service.

One of the best Chinese restaurants in Manchester! The belly pork starter is amazing, I order it every time I go. Cumin lamb, Mao's red pork and hot and numbing beef are good as well. Staff are friendly and the prices are great.

Don't ne misled by the name or the inauspicious entrance from Faulkner Street. This place is The Business - as witness the mainly Chinese diners on the two occasions I've been. Vegetables you think you know are presented here in novel and delicious ways - especially aubergine. Starter portion s are large and may compromise your ability to tackle what... More

Food is good in Chinese standard. It's typical Szechuan cuisne rather than those weird westernized chinese food. Don't know why it is under-rated. 越是这种餐馆大概越不能被英国人接受吧。 不过tripadvisor上的点评太虚了,那些评分高的餐馆也很容易踩雷。刚刚几个中餐馆底下的评价看过来,给一两星的特别多,至于吗?英国人你们就只懂球啊?
