Sichuan Bang Bang



Sichuan Bang Bang is the fantastic little Chinese diner found within the Paddington cottage it shares with its sibling opium den style Bang Bang Bar.

Take a step past the Asian screen in the front dining area to an oriental den where the furniture is Chinese, décor is black and red, and a dragon is suspended from the ceiling.

Here you will find diners tucking into share plates of fiery Sichuan cuisine, amongst the best Chinese food to be found anywhere in Brisbane.

The chilli-infused food is not for the faint-hearted but it is delicious and flavoursome and far removed from the Cantonese-meets west style Chinese fare served in most restaurants. And owner Renata, who lived in China for 5 years, knows her stuff.
