Sānyú Zhúyuàn

Sichuan in Changchun

At this upmarket chain, the decoration starts with the lovely faux-antique interior and continues with fistfuls of chilli adorning every platter – meat, seafood, even frog. In true Sichuan style, mildly spicy can translate to very spicy. The picture English menu also contains lots of veggie and nonspicy options.
