Description: From Georgina Campbell's Ireland GuideThis restaurant has been Ireland’s benchmark Chinese restaurant for two generations, and is a previous recipient of this award. It should in perhaps be named The Phoenix as, not long after moving to new premises, this family-owned favourite closed last winter and appeared to be a victim of the recession. Then, to the delight of its many fans, it reopened in the summer of 2010 after a six month hiatus. And, to a collective sigh of relief, it soon transpired that its modern interpretations of classic Sichuan cuisine are better than ever: classic dishes like tea smoked duck have been tweaked and given updated presentation by the brigade of young chefs who are reinterpreting traditional Sichuan and Cantonese cuisine with modern style. A special section of "Chef's Recommendations" highlights the kitchen's authentic Sichuan dishes based on centuries old recipes – and well-versed servers explain dishes and their ingredients, offering to tone down the amounts of chilli oil, Sichuan pepper and hot oil, if requested. The layout of the modern dining room has been improved too - and, on fine days, the glass frontage opens onto an inviting outdoor terrace with umbrella tables and seating.

A recent trip to this restaurant to celebrate a double birthday confirmed my opinion that this is the best Chinese restaurant in Ireland. My nephew,a Manhattan man,has declared this restaurant better than anything he has experienced in New York! I can recommend any of the dumpling starters and the Chef's recommendations for mains include some unusual signature dishes such as... More

Have been there a few times. It's always good. Excellent food good service. It is based in an office area more than residential or shopping area. But I work near so it suits me. The interior is really good. I would recommend for family or business.

The lunchtime menu is available for €15 with four or five starters and four or five main courses available. You chose one from each. The restaurant is always busy. It is surrounded by a number of businesses. When we were there they were serving about 80 covers. Mostly tables of 5+ people. The food was good, the service was good.... More

This was my third time at the China Sichuan and it never fails to disappoint. Having lived in both Kuala Lumpur and New York (along with having visited and eaten Asian food in Japan, China, Taiwan and Thailand) I have eaten in my fair share of Chinese restaurants - both expensive and cheap and cheerful. The China Sichuan is a... More

The staff and their professionalism makes this restaurant have the reputation they do. In honesty the food was okay but it would be great to have a bit more choice on the menus. Portion size is very good.

China Sichuan is a Dublin Gem, totally justifying it's deserved reputation. Our party of four had a wonderful evening in late August. From the embracing aroma's to colourful presentation and most importantly, the quality of the food. The staff were courteous and helpful, but not intrusive and we dined until late - being almost the last to leave. The restaurant... More

It's always nice to enter a good restaurant and find the subtle aroma of some fine food being prepared. The great reputation of this restaurant is well deserved. Nicely laid out, good service, excellent value early bird menu. The very carefully prepared and presented dishes which are full of flavour make this one of the best Chinese restaurants to be... More
