This is a great place to eat, offering authentic Sichuan food, with old fashioned Western service. As a group we ordered a lot of different Sichuan dishes (we had our friends from Rotterdam, who eat in this restaurant regularly, pick) to share, which allowed us to taste different types of food.

We come in this non traditional Chinese resto quite often! Szechuan kitchen in style... pure ingredients and spicy as you like... try the Szechuan beans for sure!

I am still disappointed by our experience at this restaurant. I have been living in Beijing for the past 6 years and was quite shocked by this fake authentic Sichuan restaurant in Rotterdam. They gave us the regular menu and when we got the bill, they charged us the prices from their 'Christmas a la carte menu' which was at... More

Authentic Sechuan Food Restaurant, mostly is HOT food. Its really nice place to eat with friends and family. Food is good but little bit salty. We order 2 course's with fried rice and fried noodle. It cost us round €50 . Big portion but u better order and share it. It's nice location near by Markthall( 5 minutes walk)

I heard that they are the spiciest restaurant in Rotterdam. Was so looking forward to fanning my tongue but sadly none of it happen. Szechuan fire not really burning.

On a Monday evening I had been invited for dinner in Rotterdam. The Netherlands is a very wealthy part of the world so some restaurants could effort to be closed on Monday evening. Therefore, we choose to go to SanSan an again and that is really no problem. This Chinese restaurant is specialised in Sichuan Food but they have also... More

This can be positive or negative depending how adventurous you feel - our host was from Singapore and she asked if we trusted her which we reluctantly agreed to. What then appeared was a selection of fantastically tasty and interesting differences - we at duck tongue, lung and many other cuts I wouldn't otherwise have chosen but the fave was... More

Great place for Sichuan cuisine, price quite reasonable and the food is very close to authenticity. Intensity of taste is slightly lower, most probably toned down to suit the local taste palate but it's still great. The Saliva Chicken, Yue Xiang Brinjal is very close to the real thing. Will be there to taste other dishes at a later time.... More

Sansan is one of the best places to get authentic chinese dishes like jellyfish, pork belly, extreme spiced chicken etc. They have a good supply from China offering the authentic experience with very friendly staff.
