This is an appalling, dirty restaurant. Our food arrived in dribs and drabs - rice half an hour before one main course - which was cold. We decided to leave after waiting half an hour for any sign of second and third main course. paid for what we had eaten/drunk and left. What was most annoying was customers who arrived after we had ordered received their food and had finished before even one part of our meal arrived.

I ordered seafood noodles to get delivered and received duck. The vegetable spring rolls are extremely geasy.And after I complained it took them more than an hour to deliver the food although I live less than a mile away.

One of the few places in London where authentic Chinese food is available. For the quality of food, the prices are incredible and for the excitement of having some favourite Sirchuan dishes, unbeatable. Service was so so when i was therr, the atmosphere is very much like a restaurant in china, with a tv blaring on the wall and lots of noise from the patrons. This all of course adds to it! Do yourself a favour and go explore this place!

This place is always busy and for a very good reason! I love Sichuan food and this is the place to be! Despite the abundance of Sichuan pepper in EVERYTHING, nothing is overpowered by spice. However, I'm a spice fiend so this could be a step too far for many people!

I would always start with the lamb skewers. They are to die for! Always order off the specials board There are some very interesting items on special and well worth trying!

All in all, it's maximum taste and minimum bill. Wish I was still in the area!

Gourmet San has the ambience of a hole in the wall but it does absolutely fantastic food at reasonable prices. One of the best.
