Main meals were RMB30. Beer and soft drinks are cheap, but watch the wine prices. Stay away from the Great Wall brand as the quality varies greatly. If you want wine choose an overseas brand.

This restaurant has a huge menu with many choices.

The food was hot, fresh, delicious, and spicy. Portions were large and prices reasonable.

The staff does not speak English but with the large pictures and English translations in the menu, we got along just fine. Service was fine.

The restaurant is tucked away in an alley and not easy to find.

Traditional Sichuan food, which is famous and delicious. Local people will prefer this place for dinner.

Very very classic and good tasting sichuan dishes, the enviroment was noisy and facilities not delicate but you will ignore everything as you are having their food!

The food served here is very traditional even with a Sichuanese standard. Yet it is losing its edge thanks to the improving quality of other Sichuan restaurants in Beijing. The service in this restaurant is somewhat you could expected from a state-owned enterprise: no passion, cold face, and "you-can-leave-if-like" faces.
One tip, arrive early to avoid the queue. They do not accept reservation unless you are a powerful official guy.
