We were wanting to try Sichuan food for a change after being in Hong Kong for 6 days. Found the San Xi Lou through the website from positive feed back & also from friends. The decor & setting is clean and staff were attentive. We were there for lunch on a rainy afternoon. We were recommanded to go to the... 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.

Went here with a friend as she knew that I really like Szechuan Food. I greatly enjoyed all the food. My friend being chinese did all the ordering and we got a wide spectrum of dishes. It was a pleasure.

Amazing authentic food. Why is it better than In China? They use the best ingredients. Every dish is a must, but these are the best to try: 1. fish in hot chili oil 2. pickled cucumber with spice 3. chilis fried in black bean 4. Sichuan spicy hotpot Tips: book in advance and show up on time or your table... More

I really like Sichuan food, unfortunately it is difficult to get the authentic taste here in South China as many restaurants tend to adjust the level of spice and in particular numbingness to the local taste. San Xi Low does a pretty good job: lots of chilli, Sichuan pepper and - yes - oil. Their "water boiled" fish/beef/frog is one... More

Have been to this restaurant multiple times. The most recent visit was to try the hotpot, since I read that it was rated among the top hotpot restaurants in HK. The hotpot was good but not great. We did a half and half soup base of spicy Sichuan soup and mushroom soup, with superior beef (this was the best beef... More
