Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After reading reviews we decided to give Fulu a try. Took an Uber there for lunch, host sat us down gave us the menu on a tablet to order it was then that we learned they only accept cash or debit cards, It clearly states...on their their website they accept MC and Am/Ex. We carry a decent amount of euros but not enough for the pricy lunch we were about to order (Fulu average entree $25) we mostly pay with a CC. This has never been an issue until Fulu.More

We love Chinese food but were underwhelmed. We had pre booked table. We had prawn wontons and chicken wontons. Bland and tasteless with a little dish of sweet chilli sauce. Boring. Chicken in black bean sauce okay. Sweet and sour chicken dish was shredded pieces...of chicken in thick batter. Tasteless. Rice was very dry and was not a nice texture. It was very busy and am perplexed as to why? A lot of food was left over on surrounding tables. Staff were very pleasant though.More

Not sure how this place got a travellers award. Food was ok - nothing special at all, service was friendly, the menu overly complicated and many of the dishes over spiced with chilli rather than having any flavour. It’s also pricey. A wholly meh experience...made worse by them not accepting credit cards. Disappointing.More

We saw this restaurant was highly recommended so booked it. First we had to order off tablets so no real opportunity to talk about the food options. One of our dishes (chicken szechuan) was just too hot and inedible. The table next to us felt...the same! We were advised we should have said right away and they would have changed it. However we didn't but wish we had. Very authentic experience but too hot for us sadly.More

Attempted to eat here…..waited for sometime as we hadn’t made a reservation despite the restaurant being akin to the Marie-Celeste. Eventually taken to the top floor, which was empty. Asked to sit at the window but again told we didn’t have a reservation. The menu...is on an iPad, so you make your choices & add to your basket which is fine. We ordered drinks as we were starting to order then noticed on the top of the iPad was a sticker stating ‘Credit Cards Not Accepted’ - we checked with waiting staff & they confirmed we could only pay by cash or debit card, we were uncomfortable with this & paid for our drinks & left. Staff were very pleasant and there was no issue with this at all. Just worth noting payment methods before you order. Also average main course is around €33 plus you need to order rice & sundries on tip of that. Can’t comment on value for money etc as we didn’t see any dishes.More

Today, I went with some friends to a long-renowned Sichuan restaurant near Central. There were about seven or eight of us, and we ordered a variety of dishes, all of which were delicious. I highly recommend the Dry-Fried Green Beans and the Spicy Stone Pot...Fish – they were both fragrant and spicy! We even had two big bowls of rice. It was a delightful experience, eating and chatting with friends, making the meal even more enjoyable.More

I’m a big fan of spicy food and so I went with my friends to try in Fulu. It was a wonderful experience ❤️ delicious food and great atmosphere! Fulu makes really amazing Sichuan cuisine dishes — two of my favourite dishes are the Dry-fried...Chicken Leg Fillet with dried chilli peppers and Dry-fried Prawn with cauliflower and red chilli peppers. These two were made with quite authentic Sichuan spicy flavour. And if anyone prefer food which are not that spicy, there are two tasty tofu dishes — one is called Stir-fried Tofu with Enoki and the other is Mapo Tofu. Both of the them are cooked with specially made sauce. Another definitely recommended dish is called Double Fried Thin Pork Belly. It’s a classic and made with the famous Lao Gam Ma Sauce! Looking forward to go eat there again!More

Convenient location with quite a few vegetarian-friendly options. We ordered the eggplant and chinese cabbage as recommended by our waiter, which was a good balance as the eggplant had more spice while the chinese cabbage was more refreshing and light. The tofu was also very...delicious, and the portions were quite generous. Staff members were very kind and helpful when introducing the food and explaining the menu, will definitely be back in the future.More
