The food of Sichuan province in southwest China is one of the world's great cuisines. Its most famous characteristic is its fiery spiciness, which comes from the liberal use of chillies and lip-tingling Sichuan pepper. But hot and spicy is only part of the story. Sichuanese chefs are legendary for their ability to combine many different tastes into exquisite complex flavors. Some of these are robustly spicy, while others are delicate and teasing. And the use of chilies is so inventive that their taste never palls.

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.

    Delicious food as always. Faves include the fragrant fish finger-sliced aubergines, veg mapo tofu, greens in garlic, and cumin lamb. I'm a regular!

    Service was dreadful, had to ask four times before our drinks were brought to the table. Would be better if all the food arrived at the same time.

    Food is so flavourful and the host is very pleasant. It does take them a bit to get your drink and we never received the tap water we asked for.

    Nice atmosphere and quite welcoming. Service good, workers very proactice and work well together. The food however was adequate unfortunately! Sad to say but most of it was quite oily. We had chicken noodles which had far too much oil. The chilli prawns were over chilli'd and should have come with a warning. West End prices but quite disappointed really.

    I have cooked with Sichuan pepper corns for years, be aware they use the very very young pepper corns, and we had the typical mouth reaction big time!. I could not eat the Gong Bao Chicken with Peanuts and the Dan Noodles also were heavy on pepper corns. Service was a bit rushed as they asked us to order 5 times in a 15-minute period. The other food items we enjoyed
