This place has gone to the pots. Just went to their toilets and saw broken urinals overflowed and nasty floors. Greasy tables after 'cleaning' and a staff that seems oblivious to anything other than the bus loads of Chinese tourists. It's turned into basically a...More

As someone who has spent a good deal of time in Beijing (where Sichuan cuisine is quite popular), and some time in Chongqing and Chengdu, I was delighted to find such authentic and satisfying Sichuanese food right beside Oxford's main coach station, near Gloucester Green....More
