SquareMeal Review of Red & Hot

Part of a nationwide group of Szechuan restaurants, Red & Hot is more upmarket than its address would have you believe. Surroundings are cool & calm, with starched white tablecloths & unflustered staff, but the menu reads like an A to Z of potent regional specialities. Famous appetisers of ‘husband & wife pork lung slices’, marinated duck’s tongues in chilli sauce or hot & spicy beef tripe are all here. Likewise, popular mains include fired-up, dry-fried frog’s legs or tender kidney ‘flowers’ (cross-hatched pig’s kidneys that ‘bloom’ when flash-fried). If searingly hot offcuts aren’t your thing, you might prefer sesame-laced dan-dan noodles, gong bao chicken (watch out for the Szechuan peppercorns) or king prawns with peppers in garlic sauce. At lunchtime, bowls of noodles are mostly under a fiver.

A huge variety of Chinese food!

I came here to have some authentic Sichuan food and I brought my friends too. The staff are friendly and were very helpful to give us non-spicy recommendations. Would definitely come back!

Worst experience ever. The waitress took our order, brought one item and went to have dinner (in front of us) while we waited for our food for more than 30min. After interacting with 3 more people when we finally realised that we are never getting our food on time we asked them to get whatever was ready as takeaway so that we can go home and eat in peace. No one in the restaurant understands English, so when we asked for a plate the manager brought us the cheque. After paying the bill, when we tried to tell the manager that it was not a good experience, he literally ignored us for couple of times!! Worst restaurant experience I have ever had in London. Avoid.

Great food, very similar to what I've had in the Sichuan area of china. A little pricey though
