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).

The food in China Sichuan blew me away. This is definitely not your average high street Chinese takeaway (in fact, they don't even do take away!). Everything was extremely fresh, wholesome and not a grain of msg in sight! The three pepper ribeye is highly recommended!!

My first visit here left me wondering where the many positive reviews had come from so it was with some trepidation that I revisited . Finishing a business meeting early I popped in at lunch hour and found the reasons for the great reviews. The staff were professional and friendly and gave me a table perfect for solo dining. My...

This is one of the gem place where you can eat and relax any day, for lunch and dinner. Tried both - lunch and dinner, both delicious and filling. Staff is professional and friendly, good atmosphere, great dishes. I would recommend to book, as it tends to be fairly busy almost every time.

We visited this restaurant on a late Saturday evening, as we were staying in apartments nearby. The food was good, and the staff were mostly fun and friendly. If we were in the area again then we would go back. Recommend for later evening (especially at weekends because it gets very busy) and definitely book before you arrive. Great job... More

Based on trip advisor it is the best Chinese restaurant in Dublin, it would be a shame to miss the opportunity. It's reopen its doors at 1700 each day and I came at 1900, the restaurant was nearly full. I think it's better to reserve the table if you are traveling to visit it. The food and service are good,...

I visited Sichuan for the 3rd time over the weekend and once again I was thoroughly impressed with the food. I had the vegetable spring rolls to start, the pork belly for mains and ice cream for dessert. I had ordered the dumplings for starter but after taking our order the waitress came back to say the dumplings were sold... More

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.
