To this Chinese restaurant ,Staff are friendly and helped us with our choices from the menu .Food arrived quickly and was very tasty .
Simply wow - the interior decor is modest, the food is not! Having previously visited the BarShu restaurant in London's Soho to get the amazing spicy Szechuan style food many times it's a complete delight to find it locally in Coventry without the London prices. If you are not familiar with this type of cuisine then there are no parallels with 'English Chinese food', different dishes and the most amazing flavours. The menu here is in both English and Chinese with pictures - the staff are so helpful and attentive I simply can't recommend this restaurant highly enough - truly special
Staff: We are the only brits in there the rest Chinese. A good sign. The staff were really nice and helpful and you could not ask for nicer people. Polite, charming and also fanciable too!
Food: Delicious. Proper Chinese food.
Not for the inexperienced I have to add because this is proper food. Those who like 70s style takeaway need not come here. This is the real deal.
One tiny criticism: the menu needs t be completely translated please.
Service 10/10 Christ they were nice
This place won't be for everyone as it is very authentic, as you can tell from the fact that almost everyone in here is Chinese and not all the menu is translated into English. Decor wise, it's more like a typical street-corner restaurant in China - it's just rows of tables and plastic chairs. The quality of the food is far more important than the decor though!
There are lots of amazing dishes here that you won't be able to get anywhere else, but as it's Sichuan style, most of them are probably too hot for the average British person. However, we had 3 fantastic main dishes and it's probably the best Chinese food I've had outside China.
The chilli rabbit wasn't translated into English on the menu, but it's definitely my favourite dish. I thoroughly enjoyed the fish and vegetables dish, even though I'm not a big fish eater and it was mostly my friends that wanted to try it.
Very good value too. For 3 of us, with more food than we could eat and a drink each, it was about £60.
I did my degree in Coventry 30 years ago & now do a lot of work there. I often need to eat & the city really hasn’t grown one bit in class or stature in 3 decades. Coventry was badly bombed in the 2nd World War. Thankfully, no bombs have dropped there since 1945, however the infrastructure bears the scars of it & the city & streets remain a conglomerate of drunken oiks & drug addicts.
On New Year’s Eve I had two hours to kill, hungry, so toured the city in my car, desperate to eat. I was about to give up. I was therefore delighted to stumble upon this oasis of civilisation.
The first thing I noticed when I walked in and sat down was that amongst customers and staff, I was the only white caucasian & the only person speaking English. If eating Orienral food, a restaurant full of Asian customers is always a very good start.
I had a wonderful plate of noodles and beef for £8. Huge portion and great ingredients. I had a good look at what everyone else was eating and by the end of 2919 I shall have sampled the entire menu.
I shall put it on here in the pictures, since I am the first to review this establishment 8 months after it first opened.
It’s cash only so take enough with you. There is a cash machine opposite, however it’s attached to Coventry Central Bus Station - if you take your wallet out of your pocket in this area of Coventry there is no guarantee that you’ll be putting it back in there again.
I hope that many of you try and enjoy this place as much as I did
