This fabulous Szechuan restaurant is an experience to remember. The dishes here are unique and memorable. Several dishes come in hot pots, clay pots, or metal stir fry pans. When I was here, I had the spicy bean curd with fish fillet in a hot pot. The dish was served in a metal pot and put top of a portable stove that was brought to my table to keep the dish boiling hot. The dish was definitely big enough for two people. One thing about this restaurant is that some of the dishes that are served in a hot pot may be $14 to $18 but are huge and are meant for two people. So this is a very reasonably priced restaurant. And a word of warning: when there are two chillies next to the dish on the menu, they really do mean that it is spicy. (I had one of those two chilli dishes so I know.) However, I found the flavour very good and the spiciness tolerable. Some dishes are not spicy here, but the spicy stuff is where the restaurant really shines. The atmosphere is very nice here too.
The address of the restaurant is:
9021 Leslie St, Unit 9
