Went for Chinese New Year's Eve dinner, not the first time, good as always, food a little on the mild side this time for Sichuan and not enough peppercorns, but still the best in oxford by a long way. Service and style very traditional, so felt like I'm back in China. Don't expect tentative waitressing style this is how it... More

First time I have been to this place although I have been meaning to go here for years. The menu was very varied to say the least. Lots of the usual staple Chinese food such as aromatic duck, fried rice, sesame toast and so on. Then lots of really unusual stuff like pigs ears, lungs, beef tripe - nice! With... More

Came here for a short trip and this restaurant has been recommended. We arrived in the afternoon, the restaurant was empty however the kitchen was open. we tried out a variety of different dishes and most of them were authentic sichuan style. I understood that the chef was from that area of China, which would explain the authentic taste. Would... More

Highly recommend: the Sichuan fish stew, the fried green beans with beef mince and chilli, the chilli dumplings, and the signature beef pork chicken and squid stir-fry. Home comforts for a reasonable price!

Love the sichuan food there, is quite authentic, especially in Oxford, you can't find any better. As a HongKonger and a cook, I know how to tell if the Chinese food is good! Many Chinese people dine in the restaurant, astomphere is good. If you are westerners, you may find the food too spicy , but Sichuan food supposed to... More

I was brought here by a friend who shares a love for Chinese cuisine for dinner on Thursday. Tucked away north of the market square this restaurant was a great surprise. Located in a historical building the place offers Sichuan dishes (medium to hot dishes) at cheap prices. The menu has pictures of all dishes which are served in bug... More

We came here for an evening hot pot which involves a wide variety of raw food (vegetables, meat and seafood) being brought to the table and being self-cooked in the shared pot at its centre which has both spicy and non-spicy halves. Any particular item can be asked for as many times as needed so don't worry to run out... More

Arrived for early lunch, restaurant empty, very few Chinese waiting staff, no one attended to us at door. Finally got seated and after another wait got menu. Asked a query about a dim sum dish when waiter eventually came back, waiter couldn't care less, knew virtually nothing about the food, and could not understand any Chinese dish names. Left and...

I enjoyed my first visit here 2 evenings ago. I had been quite impressed to find "My Sichuan" featuring in the Food Food Guide 2016 with a GFG "cooking score" of 3, so I was curious to find what made this place tick. The Old School building makes for an imposing setting and the decor is pleasant. The service was... More

I come here quite often with some chinese colleagues from work. The food is authentic, tasty and in my opinion, Very spicy. Lots of chillies but very good. Im a bit of a wimp when it comes to spicy chillies but somehow cant stop eating all the delicious food. We have lots of dishes and all share on the rotating... More
