I'm generally not a fan of Chinese food but this place is special! Food is always delish! I work beside it so it's our spot for group lunches when we have something to celebrate! Definitely recommend!

This isn't a place for the half wits that think everything should come with batter and sweet and sour(see the 1 star reviews for it) It's real sichuanese food, dripping with scarlet oil and salty bean paste, soft slippery wontons and braised beef that's tender but has that slight rubbery texture that the best boiloed beef has. the luobo gao,...

Traipsed from one side of Dublin to the other last Saturday on what was a really horrible day, soaked and windblown. This restaurant turned two grumpy people into two very happy people. The food was amazing. My wife said the prawns in her starter were among the best she's ever had. I'd love to know what they do with the... More

I know I've said it before but it is worth saying again. This really is the best Chinese food in the country. Smart yet comfortable interior and friendly staff offering great service. Visit once and you are sure to become a regular!

Long over due visit to this restaurant. I like the non standard Chinese restaurant menu with varied and tempting new options to try. Whole new taste experience. The cuisine is south west China, rather than the more familiar cantonese style, which is the cuisine more usually available in Dublin. Jasmine ribs are a true treat and the rib of beef... More

I went there about 2 years ago and and was amazed by this restaurant but I've been To China Sichuan recently and I have to say I was a bit disappointed. Portion of wasabi prawns was very small ,desert menu didn't blew me away. Friendly staff but I expected a bit better.

Had a great experience at this restaurant. Kind of upscale for the industrial park where it's located. I ordered Sichuan style Boiled Beef which was recommended by the waitress and it was delicious but very spicy. Beef had this perfect texture and nice flavor, just wish it came with a bit more vegetables (it only had Bok Choy).

Thank Irina O

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.
