Chinese Cricket Club

Chinese fine dining in the heart of the city

Region: Sichuan

If you are looking for Chinese fine dining in the heart of the city, head over to Blackfriars where you will the Chinese Cricket Club set within a grade II listed building and built on the foundations of King Henry VIII’s Bridewell palace. 

Whilst the award-winning menu incorporates dishes from the many different regions of China, what really stands out is their focus on the numbing heat of Sichuan cuisine. The Kung Po Chicken teases the taste buds with chilli bean paste, numbing Sichuan pepper corns and ginger, resulting in spicy yet sweet and sour flavour.
If you are wondering what cricket has to do with Chinese food it’s all in the name of the restaurant which was named in honour of the Chinese Cricket team in 2009. If you take a look around the restaurant you will spot various memorabilia, from cricket clubs to signed shirts and they even have a unique collection of wines produced by some well-known sporting personalities.
