BEST Sichuan food south of the river! In fact, I'd even go as far as to say the best mapo tofu west of Chengdu. Loads of chilli, spice and mouth tingling pepper corns, a real Sichuan treat.
Go....If you love sichuan food...just go. I believe this is londons best kept secret. I searched high and low for a great chinese restauant when I moved to london 3 years ago. I found Shu Castle by chance, and I havent been to another chinese restaurant since. its portions are huge as well as the chilli count. This is as authentic as it gets, definitely no sweet and sour chicken balls. Promise me you'll go.
