Good restaurant, we tend to order the takeaway at the weekends rather than go in on our way home from work. yummy!

Love visiting here when we stay at the hotel attached. So convenient and friendly staff!


Something a little different from the usual chinese restaurants in the area

Amazing authentic food and have never been made to feel so welcome anywhere else. Would highly recommend.

For those looking for something a little different, Shu Castle offers spicy Sichuan cuisine as well as the Cantonese classics. There is something for everyone which makes this place a little gem on the famous Old Kent Road

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.
