Sichuan-Folk Chinese Restaurant in London's East End has just about the coolest location of any Chinese restaurant in London: right on Hanbury Street, the main route between Spitalfields markets and Brick Lane. Its location alone would be enough to make it popular with students and locals needing a quick, economical nosh, but Sichuan-Folk is the real deal: a reasonably authentic Chinese restaurant with a focus on Sichuan cuisine and with a few intriguing dishes to tempt the punter. Try the Sichuan-folk special-flavoured chicken or peng-peng crab or jump right in to the frog legs with pickled ginger. There are vegetarian options and children are welcome. The dining room is cosy with Eastern-motif-painted walls, dark wooden tables and seating and trad tassled silk lamps. Sichuan-Folk is still a great choice for quick meals, but the food and the warm welcome lift the restaurant into something more.

Very authentic Chinese/sichuan food. Lovely Staff which helps you with food choice if you have Problems. The signature dumplings are delicious! If you want to share 3-4 dishes with your partner or more dishes with a hole group. This is the Restaurant to be. Not the most beautiful place but the food speaks for itself!more

Has potential to be some of the most flavorful food you can find in London. I think they toned down the spice level, which I really wish they hadn't. Next time, be sure to ask for extra spicy.
I had the twice cooked pork which was quite flavorful and had a bit of a kick (although I would have preferred spicier). The steamed buns it came with were a bit tough and the plate was a bit oily....more
We've been here for the all-you-can-eat hot pot as well as ordered a la carte off the menu.
Coming from New York, we've had some pretty good Sichuan meals as well as some good AYCE hot pot. Thus, the cold London winter elicited a craving for some hot pot. A quick search on Yelp showed that for central London there were only a few options. We had been referred to Sichuan Folk for their a la...more
The menu had so many different things that we wanted to try that it was a struggle to decide on what to order. It's definitely a spot worth going to if you have a lot of people so you can try an array of things.
We started with a mixed appetiser plate which included green beans, chicken and bamboo shoots in some sort of peanut sauce, short ribs in a sweet sauce with sesame seeds, some sort...more
