Situated in a lovely building, this quaint restaurant serves Sichuan cuisine with a slight twist. It struck a fine balance between authenticity and being acceptable to the general palate (the clientele was a mix of locals and foreigners). The beancurd (麻婆豆腐), prawns (宫保虾仁) and fish...More

Restaurant has a great vibe and is located in the cool French concession. Food was solid but nothing remarkable. Service was good. Had the signature basil drop cocktail. It tasted like half part pesto/ half part sugar. Most at our table loved it.
