A very large menu with many genuine sechuan cuisine items, filled with people who seem to know and love it. We have returned many times.

I lived in Chengdu for a while and loved this streetfood dish. I yearned for it now I'm back in London and so looked up restaurants. This place seemed to have good reviews and so spent over an hour on buses getting there. What a disappointment. I ordered it and when it arrived I was disappointed by the portion size!... More

My partner taught in provincial China for a year and during that time became familiar with the Chinese "hot pot", which is a fondue-style meal shared by diners at one table. We visited Little Szechuan last night and had the hot pot, which I had never tried before. It was amazing and the quantities vast - it was really too... More

This is an amazing Chinese restaurant hidden on finchley Road where you wouldn't expect to find a place of this quality. From the outside it looks fairly average but their food is generally top notch. Try the BBQ, and also the fish in chilli oil.

Love their food. Prices are reasonable and service was very nice. I've eaten there every time I came to visit my bf who lives right across.

Famous sichuan dishes lack the flavour, take for example Boiled Fish–Shui Zhu Yu, which was what we ordered among other dishes. There was no flavour at all, it was simply boiled fish in oil with some beans sprouts in it. We were taking the fish pieces out and dipping it inside other dishes. We ordered around 8 dishes and 2...

Can't say I enjoyed the food here as it is totally overpowered by salt and sugar. Very difficult to get any flavour sadly. This was my second visit here.

We eat here all the time and the quality is consistent and extremely good. As it's northern Chinese cooking it is spicy so watch out if you don't like spicy food.

I have been visiting this restaurant for years now. Having previously lived in Northern China, this is as close to authentic mainland Chinese food as you can find in London. Chef Jing has cooked Sichuanese and Henanese specialities in numerous restaurants around China. I was so happy to find a place in London which served local dishes such as hui... More
