Worth the wait of about an hour (but you get the ticket that can be checked via wechat) as weekend does not allow booking. The ingredients are so fresh especially the vegetables that get mixed with the main ingredients of the dish. The flavour is...More

It 's yummy !! You should call in advance and cannot be late as there is always a queue waiting in line. Very authentic sichuan cuisine (I dined with my friend who is from Sichuan and he praised the dishes). Service is not bad too...More

Everything was very tasty. Probably the best Sichuan food I had in Chengdu. Must try the steam roll (銀絲卷), Ma Po To Fu, and the Fish poached in Chilli oil (水煮魚). Extremely good value, too!

The simple and delicious food combined with the concept would be a $$$ restaurant in the states. The food is light, fresh and tasty. The surroundings are a nice change from the street food nearby without breaking the bank!

This review is for the restaurant of the same name that is opposite The Temple House rather than the address shown. Very popular with long 'queues' - it's a ticket system with your position capable of being monitored on WeChat. When we went there was...More

Mala hot pot restaurants are everywhere in Chengdu. They are usually hot and smoky. We wanted a different dinning experience of Sichuan food in a clean and non smoking environment. Ma Wang Zi is one of such rare restaurants which is conveniently located in Taikoo...More
