Serving fiery Sichaun dishes, Barshu is a Chinatown restaurant championed by the likes of esteemed food critic, Jay Rayner. Flavour-packed dishes originating in south west China feature on the Barshu menu, housed within lavish oriental surroundings.

Vibrant dishes on the Barshu menu include a platter of spicy crab, cooked in lashings of chilli and ginger, and taro-braised chicken in chilli and broad bean sauce. Barshu’s famous Dan Dan noodles are inspired by the street vendors of Chengdu, and feature among a range of street snacks and soups, while a selection of dry wok-cooked delicacies are an adventure away from popular chicken, fish, beef, lamb and vegetarian offerings.

While many of the dishes at Barshu in Chinatown are eye-wateringly hot, the restaurant focuses on the subtleties of eastern Chinese flavouring, offering a range of different tastes and textures. Ornately carved decorations characterise the Barshu interior, a regal space of rich blue and gold.

Barshu in London is just a minutes’ walk from Shaftesbury Avenue, and a 4-minute walk from Leicester Square Tube Station.

    Excellent and authentic food in nice surrounds. Best Szechuan food and even had Chongching dishes. The menu with pictures could put you off, but the food is really great and of course spicy as you should expect.

    much better than most other tourist traps in Soho and evidenced by the high proportion of Mandarin speaking diners.
