Restaurants in Chengdu

Sichuanese is one of China's most popular cuisines, and Chengdu is the best place to discover its spicy and tasty dishes, with most restaurants located in the city centre. Locals love traditional hotpots at Huang Chen Lao Ma and golden carp at rustic Baguo Buyi. The Celestial Court at the Sheraton Chengdu Lido offers Sichuanese fine dining, and for a change from Sichuanese, there's Cantonese at the elegant Gingko and northern Indian at Tandoor Indian Cuisine.
