Revisit verdict? We can't help noticing the changes at Dainty - new decor, new menus, more attentive service... but where has the spice gone? The dishes we received were fine, but at the end of the night, we left disappointed - missing that lovely lip-numbing, mouth-watering depth of flavour that we've come to associate with Sichuan cuisine. We truly hope the old Dainty spark (the one we know and love and crave) comes home soon.
