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.

Still the top Chinese restaurant in Dublin

Returned to China Sichuan with my entire family, and was warmly greeted by Ken the owner. Because we had young children in the party, we booked in for the early bird. The menu represents fantastic value, but we did not quite have the discipline to remain within the confines of that menu (too many... read more

We had been talking about dining here for quite a while but made a firm decision to do so on our last visit to Dublin. Even though we were expecting great things, from reviews and recommendations, we were all very pleased indeed with the quality of selection, food and service. Everything was so full of flavour and well presented. Two... More

A group of nine of us were very well accommodated. There was so much choice, it took ages for us to choose and two picked the 'early-bird' menu (before 6.15pm). All the food was fresh and the prawns were fantastic! Duck, lamb, pork, prawns-whatever we had, it was really tasty, fresh and healthy! There was plenty in each course. The... More

Really looked forward to dining here and wasn't disappointed! We had the starter platter for 3 people and at 10.50 euro each was superb. Tasty tasty! The 3 main courses centred around the seafood combinations, scallops, prawns , monkfish etc and they were excellent. Certainly spicy and I needed my Pilsner beer to soothe the taste buds!!! My wife and... More

Went for dinner here on Saturday night with another couple. Great selection of food on the menu. Very reasonable prices and portion sizes are decent enough. Staff were very busy but tried their best. We sat at 7pm but by 9pm the place was jammed so would definitely recommend booking early.

I was in Dublin on business, wasn't in this area of Dublin before. Came across this restaurant as it was close to my hotel. It was a Monday night but the atmosphere was great, plenty of people. The service was great from the moment I walked in the door. Food was very tasty. I will definitely be going back when... More

I've been here for a few business lunches and I'm convinced it's the best Chinese in Dublin. If you like noodles you have to try the Singapore noodles. To be honest I haven't tried anything else on the menu.

Ok, I've written bad reviews about this play in the past so it's only fair to write about it when it's good. I ended up having another client who wanted to meet in China Sichaun. I wasn't happy about it but choices are limited in Sandyford business park. But I was to be pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent. I... More
