We have been here twice now, both at lunch time. I see there are negative reviews but on both occasions we were delighted with the food and service, it was not particularly busy. Also, it was obvious that the restaurant is frequented by Chinese and...More

I found it very odd that the menu prices were not what you had to pay - is that even legal? The servers didn't know what the food was, which also seemed odd. Staff seem stressed and tired - maybe just the end of a...More

Well I wouldn't quite classify this as my preferred choice - mind you I have eaten in mouth watering sichuan restaurants in London, Cambridge, Southampton, Shanghai, Chengdu (well that is no comparison to these of course) and other places. This restaurant has non-existence service. The...More

I visited My Sichuan with my wife, Sam, on a Monday night. It was pretty quiet except for a large group in another room. We ordered the mixed starter to share. I ordered the Beancurd with Sauce for my main course and Sam asked for...More
