Sichuan Citizen – perfect place for weekday dinner

I love Sichuan Citizen on Donghu Lu, owned by the same guys as Citizen Bar. Their food is great, ambience is warm and lovely, service is friendly and quick, they have private booth seating style, and their cocktail ‘Basil Drop’ is one of a kind. If you have friends or family in town and are looking for a nice evening with them over dinner and conversation, bring them here, you won’t regret it.

The decor is warm, old school, with old-style Chinese posters, lighting that renders the place more red than anything, a nice-looking bar area with a funky fan-setting on the ceiling above it and attentive bartenders. If you want to try something other than their ‘Basil Drop’, go for their whiskey cocktail. For food, if you like duck, you’d love their roast duck dishes – one dish is enough to fill two. This place is very expat friendly and the Sichuan dishes may not be high on the spice meter, but they are authentic enough and score very high on flavour.

    Ok had a meal here with family last week (Nov 1, 2013 – a Friday) and the experience was real bad. Maybe because it was a weekend, but the food was below average and their Basil Drop tasted toxic. Maybe it was just my drink or maybe just bad luck, but Sichuan Citizen – not impressed.
