I had the good fortune to visit this restaurant with a colleague from Sichuan, so he picked all of their best known dishes. The food was outstanding, and very reasonably priced. If you like spicy food, you can not do much better than search out one if these restaurants.

though it's a franchaise rather famous one in China, the food here is really so so. Service also not good, price is terribly high. There are lots of places you can go rather than this one. No recommendation!

The mall that South Beauty sits in hosts many great restaurants. South beauty being an anchor restaurant. Spicy shrimp is yummy, mapo tofu very spicy, but i can make a meal of it + a bowl of rice. Steamed fish can be pricey, but always fresh and yummy.

Because of the low season, the restaurant was empty during the lunch time. It was also quite cold inside. But the ordered meals we got very quickly and the food was ok. Be careful, all dishes are very hot.
