What an amazing place to eat. We stayed in the apartments and were so lucky to have this restaurant on site. Amazing food, friendly staff and an overall fantastic experience.

I have been to this restaurant several times but sadly I didn't enjoy my last visit. To start I had salt and chill squid, it was one of the worse renditions of the dish I have had. It had no seasoning whatsoever and was just deep fried squid, I had to send it back. The main course I choose was... More

We went with the set early bird menu and the choice was great. I got the pork ribs to start, they were very tasty so were the spring rolls. The mains i got the duck, which was also really nice. Someone else got the prawns which were a tiny bit disappointing. The beef dish was the best!

On Sundays and Bank holiday Mondays lunch and dinner here is at a busy neighbourhood restaurant. Easy to reach by the Luas tram to Stillorgan stop from central Dublin. We were five - including a ten year old. We had wasabi prawns, dumplings in broth, calamari, turnip cakes, for starters. Then black sole in XO sauce; Rib eye beef -... More

Having tried several Chinese restaurants around Dublin, China Sichuan is by far the best. The service is excellent and the food is amazing, so fresh and full of flavour. The desserts are a real treat. Would highly recommend.

Went on Friday night , warm welcome from Kevin the owner, on arrival. The room was full , always a good sign . Service was excellent. The food was amazing, fresh calamari salt& pepper style to start , followed by crispy prawns & shredded beef in a sweet tangy chili sauce. This is cooking at its finest !! Can't wait... More

Description
From Georgina Campbell's Ireland GuideThis restaurant has been Ireland’s benchmark Chinese restaurant for two generations, and is a previous recipient of this award. It should in perhaps be named The Phoenix as, not long after moving to new premises, this family-owned favourite closed last winter and appeared to be a victim of the recession. Then, to the delight of its many fans, it reopened in the summer of 2010 after a six month hiatus. And, to a collective sigh of relief, it soon transpired that its modern interpretations of classic Sichuan cuisine are better than ever: classic dishes like tea smoked duck have been tweaked and given updated presentation by the brigade of young chefs who are reinterpreting traditional Sichuan and Cantonese cuisine with modern style. A special section of "Chef's Recommendations" highlights the kitchen's authentic Sichuan dishes based on centuries old recipes – and well-versed servers explain dishes and their ingredients, offering to tone down the amounts of chilli oil, Sichuan pepper and hot oil, if requested. The layout of the modern dining room has been improved too - and, on fine days, the glass frontage opens onto an inviting outdoor terrace with umbrella tables and seating.
