If you like spicy food, this is certainly a place to visit in Barcelona. The Chinese-owned restaurant offers traditional food from the region of Si Chuan which is renowned for their extremely spicy food, so be careful when you order. Their hotpot is delicious and...More

Just got out of the restaurant from lunch with a couple of my friends, here are my two cents. Service: not rude but a bit too much "pride" when we asked why a dish was not spicy at all (marked with 3 peppers on the...More

I can't even waste a lot of energy writing this review. The food was mediocre, as was the service. I have an innate distrust of restaurants whose menus feature pictures of their food, and this was certainly borne out. We all ordered items from the...More

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
