“So flavorful”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

This place is so good...
Just be ready for spicy (not necesseraly burning, though) food.
The portions are pretty big and if you dine in a group, it is a good idea to order a number of dishes to share.
The prices are very reasonable, but be prepared that beer will be half of your bill.
It seems as the second floor is reserved for smoking patrons, and that's where the bathrooms are too.

“Decent not expensive”
Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

Food was quite good, huge portions at very low prices. Not only spicy dishes, Sichuan food is very tasty. Service not great, I suggest the place for its location, ambience and food. Lots of expats. Service was the only thing below expectations.

“we have gone multiple times”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Watch out for the little green peppers! The food is tasty, authentic, and inexpensive. We suggest that you try the mushrooms. The food can be very spicy!

“Great Sichuan food in Shanghai with excellent cocktails”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

I went here three times during my week in Shanghai - food was consistently very tasty, decor is cool and cocktails were fantastic - my mouth is watering thinking about the very unusual, yet very delicious, Basil Drop. Yum!
