Plenty of GF options which is great for my dad who is coeliac . The food was really tasty and came very quickly . Really enjoyed it. Like others felt a little rushed but when I looked at the booking you only have the table for 1.5 hrs so that makes sense for these covid times . Mum and dad had trouble reading the menu on a phone screen so we have printed one out for them to look at as I am sure we will be repeat customers !

Food, ok.. service very poor bordering on rude.
Get a printed menu or at least put in on a platform that everyone can see.

The food was very good, great flavors and plenty in a serve.
Cocktails were very good and the drink selection was great.
Little disappointed about the service, the few staff were very busy.
Very disappointed that they only had 2 deep fried ice cream left for desert and there were 8 of us in the party that wanted it
Very happy with them and will defiantly go again.

Quality of the chosen meal (Chilli Chicken) was rather poor, the rice was gluggy and the service was not particularly good.

It was our first visit to Sichuan Papa and we chose the feed me option and were not disappointed! I can't eat coriander and they were more than able to accommodate that for me.
We had 2 starters, 2 mains plus a side and dessert each and were well satiated!
It was a very busy night and the restaurant was full so it was a little noisy, however, not so much that we were shouting at each other to converse.
They have a great wine, beer and cocktail list and the ambience is great.
We can't wait to return and try more of the options on the menu.

We had a very pleasant evening and enjoyed the food. I would like to see a chardonnay on the wine list even though we had a very tasty pinot grigio. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

This was our first time trying out Sichuan Papa. The food was absolutely delicious and they had lots of vegan options for our vegan family. They were mostly sides, but they were as big as the main dishes. The staff were unsure about a couple of things but they quickly sorted it out and they were prompt and very friendly. We sat inside and the atmosphere was great. Nice dim lighting and beautiful decor. For a reasonably priced family night out, we were very happy. Will be going back for sure!

Food was amazing as always - however we could not enjoy our meal as the wait staff constantly came to the table to try and clear it and hurry us along.

We were one of only 2 tables occupied in the restaurant and there was no line up so not sure why they had to come over every 5 minutes.

It made our experience extremely uncomfortable and makes us hesitant to return or recommend to others.

Very disappointing

The restaurant was inviting and the food was very enjoyable. Being Szechuan style cooking, many menu options were different to the normal Cantonese fair.
The 1.5 hour dining window was too short for a chatty lunch and the wait staff seemed to be urging us throughout the meal. After we left the restaurant, we ordered coffee in a neighbouring café where we lingered for another hour to complete our chatty lunch.

Tables were a little close together and I don’t think they would have met social distancing requirements so that was a bit of a concern.

The food was fabulous but the service was a challenge. We found it difficult to get anyone’s attention when we wanted to order anything. Took us ten minutes to have our drinks order taken when we arrived. Perhaps another team member on a Saturday night would help.

Again, the food was fabulous. So we’ll definitely give it another go.

Lunch dishes are good value, the chicken dumplings were delicious and so was the pork belly dish! Wouldn't recommend the sichuan chicken, nothing special.

We dined from the ‘Feed Me’ menu which consisted of a lot of deep fried food. When we requested more dumplings we were told that we cannot select what we’d like more of and the chef can only chose. We were literally overloaded with plates of deep fried chicken, deep fried calamari and fried rice.
The waiter then brought the bill and when I asked if dessert was included he said yes, we forgot to bring it. Our only option was to take away our ice cream.
Will not be back.

Family dinner to get out and celebrate my sons birthday. The take on the food is fantastic, excellent food quality, great service and we like to support local buisness that deserve our support. Keep up the great work, but please get rid of the plastic water jugs, it leaves a plastic taste in the water, go glass jugs.
