I've lived in Barcelona for the last 15 years and have loved Chinese food from NYC, London and Singapore but have lamented the dog food, yes, dog food that has passed as Chinese food in Spain. Finally, luck has arrived and here I sit, surrounded only by Asians and know my prayers have been answered. No, not Out of China nor any other recent fashion restaurant can compare. This is it, people. Go here.

We had a TA Cruise starting in Barcelona. We got a head start with three days there. On one day, we were walking around the city and decided to stop in for a quick bite. I am glad we did. The place was clean and inviting, the food excellent and the service outstanding. The missus had a nice large bowl of soup, I went with a nice beef and rice. Of course we had to do the dumplings. We now know when we are in town, we will be going there. The staff were so attentive!! If you are in Barcelona and want a change of pace, walk the extra few blocks off La Rambla and check L'olla de Sichuan out!

Located in the corner easy to drop guests. On arrival you can choose a la carte or buffet or noodle package. Parking garage is near. Food is prepared fast and tastes good. At 22.00 we could ask what we wanted and prepared by chef even if it is not on menu. Great for lunch too.

The food was very nicely prepared and the peppered flavors were great. I had a curried prawn dish that was wonderful. The hot and sour soup was a delight and the fried dumplings were very delicious. Service was good and the staff was very polite. I would recommend this restaurant to anybody staying in the Eixemple Izquierda, or the city center.

First time at de si Chuan. Food was tasty and enjoyable. Service was slow and staff seemed a bit neutral ( not very friendly) I was quite dissapointed with the decor and the website ( which is a blog not a website).

Hello traveller_xx13,

We are happy to give us your opinion. Good things and bad have the same origin.

We are very pleased that you liked the food. Cook just after the client asks us to cook. Thus we get that food is more fresh and tasty, but it took more time than other restaurants. End of February are very high occupancy dates in chinese restaurants, but made us change the hierarchy to be more efficient. When you return, you will see that we are more fast: D!

Our waiters are Chinese and are used to serve their countrymen, sometimes forget that we are in Barcelona. We apologize if you felt treated incorrectly, and thank you notify us.

Thanks again, and we hope when you return,

L' Olla de Si Chuan
