Barshu is the consensus number one option around town when you want to eat spicy Sichuan-style food in central London. It’s lively, the food’s good, and it’s slightly upmarket so you can bring your client or OCD friend or whoever and still have an awesome evening. The dan dan noodles and dumplings in chilli oil are very tasty, and the amount of spicy and deep-fried things on the menu means that it’s fantastic if you just want to knock back a few beers and eat with your hands.
