This is my favourite Chinese restaurant in Victoria. The food is authentic Sichuan and spicy in a flavourful, aromatic way, not in a way that just burns your tongue. We always take the hot chilis from the spicy chicken dish home to cook with! Favs: Shanghai noodles, spicy green beans, eggplant, green onion pancake, spicy chicken dish.

If you want an authentic, home-cooked Sichuan meal, this is the place for you. This unassuming, family-run restaurant excels at deceptively simple, delicious dishes that celebrate the range of flavours unique to Southwestern China. For the best experience, order off the Sichuan menu or look at what other diners have ordered and ask for the same (our recommendations: si ji dou (four season green beans), ma po dofu (tofu), joh ji (black peppercorn chicken) and eggplant with mushrooms and garlic. We also like milder dishes such as Shanghai noodles, stirfried potatoes and stirfried cabbage. The western style chow mein type dishes are not bad, but stick with the Sichuan style dishes for the best experience. Yan and her family are warm and welcoming. This is not a fancy place but the food will make you want to come back; we bring guests here all the time and they always want a return visit. Plan to wait a bit for your meal - it takes time for all of those great flavours to meld together! Make sure you park in the back of the restaurant (off Richmond).

This place was highly recommended by a local yet I am not sure why? The place is very non-descript so we drove by a few times before spotting it. We circled around the block a few times before deciding the only place to park was in the lot behind the building with all the tow-away signs, none of which granted Hong Kong West parking.

The front windows are covered with moisture more commonly seen at a Turkish bath. The interior was very plain and the tables and chairs were basic. It was early evening and the tables were two-thirds full.

The food served to the neighboring tables looked good but the service was ridiculously slow; twenty minutes to order, another thirty minutes to be served. The first dish we ordered, they were out of the ingredients, the second was not recommended by the server. When we did get the food, it wasn't bad but far from fantastic. The water glasses were never refilled and we finally asked for the bill and again waited before finally going up to the counter to pay.

If you do get tired of waiting for your food, the Hospital cafeteria is right across the street.
