I really enjoyed lunch at San Xi Lou. The food is very authentic and the view is pretty phenomenal. Would highly recommend this place for group lunches/dinners

If you are a big fan of spicy hot sichuan cuisine, you cannot miss San Xi Lou. Their spicy boiled fish (水煮魚) is a MUST try, it is served in a big bowl of boiling hot red soup, sliced fish and noodles covered with loads of dried chilli. Don't feel intimidated by all those chilli, in fact they are not... More

Went here with 2 locals. It was great! We had the hot pot mix of spicy and non-spicy with Lamb, Beef, and other assorted veggies. This is something we don't have in the US. The atmosphere was energetic. We were on the 22nd floor part of the restaurant. Just make sure you have an empty stomach when you arrive so... More

Hot stuff. Not Chili Fagara level but still hot enough to make you sweat. Great variety, we had fish, chicken, pork and a variety of items off the vegetarian menu for some of our party. Not everything is spicy so friendly for both spice and non spice lovers. Very busy so reservations recommended / needed. Quick trip in a taxi... More

There are two options for San Xi Lou, within the same building - 7F or 22F. We went to 22F. We had a local accompanying us on this trip and one of the boys said he wanted Sichaun. For the local - there was only one choice - San Xi Lou. The décor on 22F is nothing to rave about... More

I have been coming here either eating in, or getting takeaway for the last seven years. It has always rated highly for our family. The chilli mandarin fish is a favourite each time, despite the steep price. Today? I get the takeaway home and the fish is clearly not mandarin fish. It is some kind of inferior substitute and does... More

Great tasty food, relatively good prices as well and very spicy. If you like spicy, then this is the right place. Be careful, even one pepper is significant spiciness.

The food is tasty, has a little spice, and the presented beautifully. If you want to try Sichuan food in Hong Kong look no further. Prices are reasonable. Definitely try the spicy chicken and cashew dish, it's classic Chengdu.

Hot Pot is what you should go for in this places which is dominated by Chinese guests. You start with making your own sauce to dip things in when cooked. The meat and the vegetables are of prime quality. Pls note CASH ONLY.
