Dainty Sichuan kicked off small about 9 years ago, in an entirely different suburb - Collingwood - it soon moved to Melbourne CBD and started gathering a following of hot-fanatics. So Dainty Sichuan has history, that has to tick a couple of boxes right off.
The ambience is anything but ambient, the place is and always has been loud, a clattering, ear ringing cacophony blended unsubtly with movement and smell.
The - heat - rating system says it all, single, double or triple chilli, the food is flavour filled, the menu is not shy either, 50+ items allows for a different dish each visit.
Overall the atmosphere is brilliant, very diverse. The food goes from being hot all the way to blisteringly hot. Portions are ample.
Prices are reasonable, $8 - $30 per dish, we walked away with a $140 bill for 4 people.
The lunch menu is a bargain, a huge selection of dishes under $10.
