I had a very disappointing experience with delivery from Gourmet San. They said it would take an hour and 20 minutes. When it hadn´t shown after an hour and 40 I called the restaurant. They said they would find out what had happened and call me. They didn´t call, so i had to call them back 15 mins later, nearly... More

A wonderful lamb dish that is delicious served with beer! the food there is valued for money. we ordered the oil fried fresh beans (spicy and juicy)! but i didn't like the cold noodle, too soggy and too soft (not sure if they are overcooked).

Having lived in northern China for 5 years I know this cuisine. Their are 2 options; eat in or takeaway. I have eaten in the restaurant twice. It is uninviting, service is non-existent. The food is reasonable and quantities are good. Take-way dishes are surprisingly small considering what you get to eat in and at the same price. Chinese food... More

The food is really bad cooked, oily dishes, maybe the cook would need clases. The best dish was the plain rice. So we'll never come back again.

Gourmet San used to be great...but it's now pretty poor. Maybe the chef or management has changed but we were really disappointed with our last visit...it's cheap, underachieved and kind of ordinary Chinese food - what a shame!

If you're looking for some of the best Chinese food in London then this is it. If you're looking for good service in a clean and pleasant environment then go somewhere else. It is quick, cheap and dirty with service to match. You come here for the food only.

This place has been my favourite Chinese restaurant in London. I feel it used to be better, but it still well worth a visit. The portions are generous, the food is tasty and the prices are good. The barbecued lamb skewers are excellent. Good for delivery/ take away too!

This place does great, authentic Sichuan food. It's very tasty and well priced. But don't expect good service. It's slow, the waitresses seem to forget something everytime we visit and they're quite rude. But the BBQ lamb skewers make up for it alone!

I've been going here for years and it's my favourite Chinese in London. The menu has some really strange things on it like jellyfish and tripe which I've never tried or BBQ rabbit legs, sea hares, pig feet or frogs legs, all of which I have tried and are delicious. The sweet and sour ribs are great too as is... More

This tiny place is in the middle of Bethnal green road, hidden between chicken shops and cheap Bangladeshi curry houses. I walked in on my own Sunday 5pm there was a Chinese family on one table and a white couple on another. I asked for a table for one please and young waitress looked at me as thou I was... More
