It’s a while since we were last at Middle Kingdom. It was a bit of a worry when we looked at the menu outside. Everything was Cantonese, even though their website still describes them as Sichuan and Hunan. Would there even by Sichuan to eat?...More

Visited on a cold damp midweek evening so no great surprise that the place was almost deserted so not much of a buzz. The food, however, was great and reminded me of meals in China. When the dishes arrived we realised we had over-ordered as...More
