My sister loves Sichuan food and we used to frequent Dainty Sichuan when it was located on Corrs Lane in the CBD, now taken over and renamed Sichuan House.
One of our favourite dishes to order would be thier ‘Sui Zhu Yu’ which directly translated means Water Boiled Fish. It is a pot of Sichuan style boiled fish with lots of chilli and ‘hua jiao’ Sichuan Peppercorns.
However since moving to their new location along Toorak Road, they started having hotpot as well which we decided to try that day.
We also ordered their Chilli Chicken and Meat Paos.
Their Chilli Chicken has been decreasing in portion over the years, with more dried chilli than actual chicken pieces. As I don’t like to eat chicken/pork/fish skin, ( haha yes even pork crackling) I personally am not a fan of this dish, however my cousins really like it.
The Meat Paos were mediocre, wouldn’t recommend getting them.
Overall, still one of our favourite places for Sichuan Food. Also, good for large groups.
