Great restaurant for every occasion with great, friendly service. Their Early Bird menu is great value, with loads of selection. To start the chicken bon bon is a nice cold, light, flavoursome dish. The fish fragrance dishes and sweet chilli crispy beef are all delicious!...More

I have been to this restaurant several times but sadly I didn't enjoy my last visit. To start I had salt and chill squid, it was one of the worse renditions of the dish I have had. It had no seasoning whatsoever and was just...More

Having tried several Chinese restaurants around Dublin, China Sichuan is by far the best. The service is excellent and the food is amazing, so fresh and full of flavour. The desserts are a real treat. Would highly recommend.

You need to get Luas Green line to Stillorgan and it is a two minute walk .Well worth the journey.

Description
From Georgina Campbell's Ireland GuideThis restaurant has been Ireland’s benchmark Chinese restaurant for two generations, and is a previous recipient of this award. It should in perhaps be named The Phoenix as, not long after moving to new premises, this family-owned favourite closed last winter and appeared to be a victim of the recession. Then, to the delight of its many fans, it reopened in the summer of 2010 after a six month hiatus. And, to a collective sigh of relief, it soon transpired that its modern interpretations of classic Sichuan cuisine are better than ever: classic dishes like tea smoked duck have been tweaked and given updated presentation by the brigade of young chefs who are reinterpreting traditional Sichuan and Cantonese cuisine with modern style. A special section of "Chef's Recommendations" highlights the kitchen's authentic Sichuan dishes based on centuries old recipes – and well-versed servers explain dishes and their ingredients, offering to tone down the amounts of chilli oil, Sichuan pepper and hot oil, if requested. The layout of the modern dining room has been improved too - and, on fine days, the glass frontage opens onto an inviting outdoor terrace with umbrella tables and seating.
