Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This popular spot on the busy stretch of Sauchiehall Street is famed for its Sichuan-style cooking. The chic space is cavernous, but carefully decorated with heavy furniture to bring a feeling of intimacy and luxuriousness to the dining experience. The menu is as expansive as the dining space, with helpful pictures to guide diners through the more authentic dishes, these specialities mean this place is popular with the Chinese community in Glasgow. Starters are delightfully moreish, including salt and pepper chicken wings and prawn toasts – sizzling and full of earthy sesame flavour. Given that the cooking here is based on food culture from the Sichuan province of China, it would be a missed opportunity not to try the crispy Sichuan chicken for mains – sweet and spicy with a rich, gently fiery sticky sauce. Sam bai chicken, tender and cooked on the bone, is strongly flavoured, pungent in the soy and garlic sauce that is so synonymous with the cuisine of the region. All this great food – along with personable service from manager Joe and the team - means Sichuan House is an enticing proposition.
