Good food decent price but not really sichuan authentic thou. Good to try but i dont think i would make much efford to go back. Recommended the sizzling spicy squid. Don't go for the duck or sweet ans sours spare ribs. We were here around 4:30pm so very quited. Take forgein credit card. Service is ok
really hard to get a taxi from the restaurant. Recommended walked across the street and go the the closest red light. Avoid 5:30pm to 7pm since the traffic is really bad.

This restaurant is located on a street where there are a number of other restaurants and pubs. The best is to book a table in advance to be sure you don't have to wait for a table, but we have always got seating within 10 minutes without prebooking. The food is very good, they have a lot to choose from and good variety of dishes even for vegetarians. Their crunchy beef is a must, it is so good!

We ordered quite a few dishes during the evening and nothing disappointed! Very nice food and attentive staff. The food is as the name suggest sichuan/szechuan food which is spicy so you need to like spicy food. We will for sure go back there next time in Shanghai.

The restaurant is quite crowded but not in an oppressive way; more in a jovial, fun Friday night sort of way.
Fun atmosphere. Great cocktails. Really good food (I think the only thing we did not like was the hot pork short ribs). Fast service.
Overall good experience.

Make a booking if you want a table in this busy Donghu road, Xuhui restaurant. Start off with their signature cocktails and then indulge in their Mapu tofu, chili beans, spicy ribs, mixed veggie/ peanuts and chili chili chili.... reconfirmed the place for fantastic Sichuan food. A must try for Shanghai visitors who wanna try some southern food !
