Hv been wanting to visit the restaurant where Mapo tofu was invented. Wonderful dinner with Mapo tofu n Mapo tofu with fish. Ended with Dan Dan noodle which was exceptional. A treat for Sichuan food lovers

There was a long queue to get in here but the wait was worth it- the food was really good- the local spices certainly added some heat to some of the meals but everything we tried was great

Went there during lunch around 1130am on a weekday, not very crowded but the crowd came around 1pm. Food is generally nice, but don’t expect good restaurant service.

It helps if you know some Mandarin. When we arrived for lunch, tens of people were already waiting. We got a ticket, and when the number on our ticket was called, after half an hour or so, our table was ready. So you have to...More
