    What used to be a great Sichuan restaurant is now generic buffet restaurant

    Delicious Sichuan cuisine! This is one of the best places in Chinatown. Generous portions and authentic flavours (confirmed by my Chinese friend as well). I would come back anytime!

    If you like strong flavour I can recommend everything we tried. Aubergine duck egg, spicy pigs ear, prawn with pickled chillis, fish fragrant pork slivers and the big flavour sensation: Gong Bao tofu

    If you think you'll have leftovers, bring along your own takeout box otherwise you'd need to pay 50p for them!

    Catfish boiled in chilli oil here is mediocre and bland, you pay for what you get. If you like this dish, head over to Wuli Wuli in Camberwell.

    Pretty authentic food. Their fish fagrant pork is outstanding. So are the dry fried green beans. The waterboiled fish (their special) was a bit bland...

    Unfriendly waitress and terrible hygiene - I doubt if they cleaned the bowls, it's pretty oily. Food is alright.

    it's an extension of Baozi Inn 人民公社 with similar theme. No credit card. Staff was nicer here, but I'm just not a fan of the food.
