At Barshu we want to bring you the best of the authentic flavours of Sichuan. So look out, among others, for the seductive 'fish-fragrant'combination of pickled chilies, ginger, garlic and spring onion, the addictive fieriness of 'numbing-and-hot' flavored dishes, and the refreshing tones of a 'ginger-juice' sauce.
We hope you enjoy your food.

This was just sensational. Cafe style, with charming attentive service and outstanding food. Be warned. Large portions. We had a terrific evening.
Best Sichuan in town. Always high quality food and warm service.
My favourite restaurant before lockdown, and just as good on my first visit after lockdown! Food, service and ambience all fabulous - will definitely go again, and bring more friends and family. Those we have taken have all gone back for more!
Lovely as always, got to take my family this time and they loved it too.
Barshu used to be one of the best Chinese but the quality wasn't quite up to the price this time. Food fine but not fantastic which it should be for the price
Excellent and very tasty food in a simple but elegant ambiance. Very good service!
Probably the best Chinese food I've ever had. Incredible flavours, would thoroughly recommend
Tasty food and very good service. Staff were friendly and helpful. Not too expensive either!
Great food and excellent service! Smacked cucumbers are a must order as well as the steamed fish
My family’s favourite and go-to spicy food restaurant. Delicious and authentic food!
Incredible food! Just amazing
Great food, authentic Sichuan cuisine, cold beers, polite service. All makes for a good evening out with friends.
The food was superb; just what we wanted!! Service was friendly and efficient. Will definitely recommend this place to friends who like this type of excellent food
everything wonderful, service food, wine. Fabulous sichuan flavours
The food was amazing. Best chinese food I've had in London.
Very enjoyable great atmosphere authentic cooking very expensive … but would go again
Amazing food, best Chinese food in London!
A very noisy restaurant, in spite of the fine cuisine.
There were a small number of Chinese wines on the list, but there was no information on the list about region or grape varieties, and the staff had no idea either, so we stuck with wines we were familiar with. Perhaps Barshu could make more of an effort to promote Chinese wines!
Our waitress was so kind and I felt that she wanted everything to be perfect for us. The button on the table to get the bill is very convenient.
Service ok but food was very average. Servings very large though. Kung pao chicken ok but other dishes weren’t.
I love this place and I’m so happy to be able to return to it. It was my dads first trip to London for over a year and this was top of his list of places to go. It didn’t disappoint
Nice environment, very friendly staff, and truly excellent food. It isn't cheap but it's worth it.
Attentive but unintrusive service, tasty and satisfying food
I have eaten at Barshu more than once. The food is consistently excellent and delicious. Service is always very good. This was one of my first meals out after lockdown and it was the perfect choice. The tables were arranged far apart so there were no problems. I will definitely be returning to Barshu.
Excellent food and helpful staff, we didn't know what to order having not been there before fab recommendations good value for money
Different food must try . Beef in peppers was amazing !
Great food, completely different to China town Chinese. Love it.
I can see why this place is so popular.
The menu is varied , the dishes beautifully presented and portion size generous. The quality of the food was outstanding- What’s more is they will kindly offer to pack it for you to take home should you over order like me and my partner seemed to.
The chicken dumplings in the chilli oil were the best I’ve ever had.
The service was excellent and being in the industry I don’t say this lightly, the man serving us was attentive without being intrusive and very friendly.
Looking forward to going back, if you haven’t been I would highly recommend.
Just as I remember it before lockdown. The quality never disappoints
Large portions, fresh and original dishes, Szechuan food but not too spicy
Superb food. Always is, but even though they have limited the menu now the food is every bit as good as it always has been. Wonderful staff too.
Food was delicious, we will definitely be back again.
Every dish is incredible. Everything that passes your table smells HEAVENLY
I recommend the soft shell crab (get one each, you won’t want to share) and any of the twice-cooked meats... melt in your mouth delicious
Very expensive for what it was. We ordered tea and they charged us 7.80 for two cups with two ordinary teabags.we had a bottle of water 3 starters and shared a main with one rice. It was 70 pounds for lunch.
Excellent authentic Sichuan food. Friendly and helpful staff. Prices seem high but each dish serves 2 people easily.
Great food, generous helpings, quirky ordering (filling in boxes on table menus) and good value - especially with the 30% discount we were given.
One of our party had a long wait for his meal - I think they missed his entry on the order form - hence the lower score for service.
It was quiet, uncrowded and clean. I'd eat there again.
One of my favourite Chinese restaurants in london serving Hunanese food. It is like being back in china - come here for an authentic Chinese dining experience!
Fantastic authentic Sichuanese food. One of my favourite restaurants in London.
The service was good.. pinot was nice... the food was expensive but tasty.
