“Stew dish came in cold ”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

Been there a few times for Sichuan food. The Mao Cai was good but other dishes were not as delicious. We ordered stew beef potatoes, one of their signature dishes, and it came in cold on the inside. We requested the waiter to heat it up but the food came back in five minutes and turned out to be very dry. I believed it has been microwaved instead of pan-fried. After this incident I will never patron this place again.

“Best Sichuan food in town!”
Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

We had a remarkable and inexpensive meal here. The chilli chicken and the cumin beef were spicy and amazing. The place was also crawling with locals, which is always a good sign.

Highly recommended!

“Absolutely authentic Sichuan cuisine in Singapore”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

This hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Singapore's Chinatown serves authentic Sichuan cuisine. I could have easily been eating in Chengdu. The boiled beef in Chili sauce was very spicy, but not so overwhelming as to unbalance other flavors. The Squid with fresh chili peppers was terrific as well, and the vegetable dish we had of Chinese yams with tree ear mushrooms was a refreshing and unusual antidote to the spices of the other dishes. Service was pleasant, and prices are reasonable. A wonderful experience.

Mosque Street is the quiet cousin to neighbouring Pagoda Street, the unofficial capital of 'tourist China Town'. However the restaurants on Mosque Street have more Singaporeans and less tourists in them. Si Wei Mao Cai was the busiest and we took the last free table.

The food was excellent, I saw plenty of authentic sichuan options including the chilli chicken and shredded potato dishes I ordered. Menu is in English and Chinese. I drank a Snow beer.
