Sichuan Citizen was recommended to us by both our friends who live in Shanghai and a Lonely Planet guidebook. We're very glad we listened as it was an enjoyable and price friendly meal.
Having heard so much about the Basil Drop Martinis, we couldn't help but order one ourselves, particularly when we saw the verdant green colour firsthand. They are certainly a different taste but one we couldn't get enough of - really refreshing and very complementary of the spicy Sechuan food.
We ordered several dishes including the snakebeans, the pot-stickers, the ribs and spicy eggplant but the standout was the beef in a caramelised sauce (this isn't the exact name as per the menu so hunt for it). Oh. My. Goodness. Tender, sweet and saucy, this was so good we ordered another plate as soon as we finished the first.
I've heard people compare Sichuan Citizen to Di Shui Dong and I preferred Sichuan Citizen. The atmosphere is warmer, the food a bit friendlier to those who aren't accustomed to a lot of spice and the drinks menu far more adventurous.
