Very special chinese restaurant with spicy Sichuan cuisine. Modest, fresh and very simple place, more like scandinavian decor, wooden chairs and tables, nothing more.

For some reason this restaurant has been pretty popular among Chinese but I have to say there are other better Chinese restaurant in town which are better than this. Most of food was good but pretty lousy service.

Fair choice of dishes though not the choice that we are used to in the U.K. Definitely authentic with the place full of Asians. Quick service depending on what you order. My pork meal was nearly finished before my companions got their prawn dishes!
