JinLi Chinatown

OPENED 83 DAYS AGO

Award-winning Sichuanese restaurant JinLi opens a second location in Chinatown.

Located at the new development on NewportPlace, JinLi continues to focus on Chinese cuisine from the Sichuan province, known for its hard-hitting hot and spicy flavours.

JinLi - dining room

The Spot:

JinLi won “Best Restaurant in England” at the 2018 Golden Chopsticks awards, so it’s safe to say the standards are high for their second location. Simply named “JinLi Chinatown”, the restaurant balances features wooden panels with modern lighting, achieving a sense of softness throughout.

The Food:

JinLi aims to redefine London’s Sichuanese dining scene with traditional dishes alongside an array of new creations. Besides griddled dishes of duck tongue and king prawns swimming in chillis, the menu includes a new “JinLi Fragrant Rabbit” (creative names aren’t their forte), drawing inspiration from Chengdu’s popular street food snack of spicy Sichuan-marinated rabbit. And in line with their ambitious goal, the chef will return to Chengdu every six months for a dose of inspiration – we love an ever-evolving menu.

The Drinks:

Expect Asian beers and herbal teas.

The Damage:

Dishes generally range between £4 and £13, excluding the restaurant’s whole crispy fried duck priced at £32.

In a Nutshell:

London has an admirable reputation of being a leading destination for East Asian cuisine, and JinLi contributes to scene with refined versions of time-honoured recipes.
