This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

If walking down a dingy side street and then down some steep stairs doesn’t fill you with confidence, prepare to be won over at this Chinese restaurant. This might be a no-frills affair – red polka dot oilcloths sit alongside a splattering of red Chinese lanterns – but who cares when the food is this good? There’s an emphasis on Szechuan food, and dishes such as Szechuan-style double-cooked sliced pork are popular with all its customers. The regular contingent from Glasgow’s Chinese community always seem to order something more exciting than you’ve just ordered – though staff will happily recommend the Mongolian barbecue beef, braised sea bass, or fried jade tofu with spinach. Surprisingly, this place works as well for a first date or a family meal and, as soon as you taste the food, the lack of frills simply adds to the overall charm of the place.
