This Chinese restaurant in the Crowne Plaza Hotel is well located for the City as well as the nearby attractions of the Tate Modern and St Paul's Cathedral. The menu focuses on (spicy) Sichuan cooking but takes in dishes such as tiger prawns with Shanghai noodles, Hunanese lamb and Beijing-style crispy duck, as well as a range of Cantonese dim sum. A range of set menus are offered too for £17.50, along with a chef's tasting menu (£45).

I loved the food here! Wow! This place is great for a decent Chinese in a thoroughly British setting. The drinks menu is as good as the food and you won't be disappointed by either. Definitely get a plate of crispy duck to go with your beer if you're only here for a drink and wash it down with a sake of course.
Best Kung Po chicken @ Chinese Cricket Club... Sweet and Sour sauce = Tomato paste/ketchup + syrup (which one?) + fruit juice (which one?) + Vinegar + possible BBQ sauce or Worcester sauce. Chef is beyond PHD level in Gourmet cuisine! I came out that restaurant imagining a couldron bubbling away with Sichuan peppercorns, infusing for maybe a whole week. Very high level techniques for sure as evident from the subtle initial tastes to long-term lingering taste...
