Well I wouldn't quite classify this as my preferred choice - mind you I have eaten in mouth watering sichuan restaurants in London, Cambridge, Southampton, Shanghai, Chengdu (well that is no comparison to these of course) and other places. This restaurant has non-existence service. The service they provide is the very bare minimum: one needs to keep asking them repeatedly... More

I visited My Sichuan with my wife, Sam, on a Monday night. It was pretty quiet except for a large group in another room. We ordered the mixed starter to share. I ordered the Beancurd with Sauce for my main course and Sam asked for Fried Sweetcorn. Our waitress told her that was unavailable so Sam asked her to suggest... More

rude Chinese staff with bad rude manners. Price not cheap but quality no good either. Ordered a chilli noodle within hour I ended up with bad tummy ache and sick. Poor quality and bad environment. Very disappointing. Will not return or recommend to anybody. Don't know how it can stay open for this long.

Went for Chinese New Year's Eve dinner, not the first time, good as always, food a little on the mild side this time for Sichuan and not enough peppercorns, but still the best in oxford by a long way. Service and style very traditional, so felt like I'm back in China. Don't expect tentative waitressing style this is how it... More

First time I have been to this place although I have been meaning to go here for years. The menu was very varied to say the least. Lots of the usual staple Chinese food such as aromatic duck, fried rice, sesame toast and so on. Then lots of really unusual stuff like pigs ears, lungs, beef tripe - nice! With... More

Came here for a short trip and this restaurant has been recommended. We arrived in the afternoon, the restaurant was empty however the kitchen was open. we tried out a variety of different dishes and most of them were authentic sichuan style. I understood that the chef was from that area of China, which would explain the authentic taste. Would... More

Highly recommend: the Sichuan fish stew, the fried green beans with beef mince and chilli, the chilli dumplings, and the signature beef pork chicken and squid stir-fry. Home comforts for a reasonable price!

Love the sichuan food there, is quite authentic, especially in Oxford, you can't find any better. As a HongKonger and a cook, I know how to tell if the Chinese food is good! Many Chinese people dine in the restaurant, astomphere is good. If you are westerners, you may find the food too spicy , but Sichuan food supposed to... More

I was brought here by a friend who shares a love for Chinese cuisine for dinner on Thursday. Tucked away north of the market square this restaurant was a great surprise. Located in a historical building the place offers Sichuan dishes (medium to hot dishes) at cheap prices. The menu has pictures of all dishes which are served in bug... More
