Description: Established in 2005, Chilli Fagara first opened on Graham Street in Soho and soon attracted a loyal clientele with our authentic, fiery Sichuan cuisine. The shop's intimate size, burnished red walls, dark wood furniture and simple details create warmth, while our cuisine creates fire. Based on the Ma La Tang concept for numbing (ma), burning (la) and neutral (tang) tastes of Sichuan food, our menu represents the breathtaking range of culinary possibilities fashioned by our chef each day, all using the freshest ingredients. Many people describe our food as orgasmic. The intensity mounts and grows until you reach the top. Then you have to calm yourself, and we have dishes for that, too. Our Sichuan specialties are for the daring palate. Dramatic and challenging, they offer an unforgettable experience. But there is also plenty on the menu for a relaxing dining experience with entrees that offer delicate flavor combinations. In 2015, we opened our second Soho location on Old Bailey Street in a more spacious venue where patrons can bask in the eclectic mix of contemporary and traditional Chinese décor, while enjoying the same fiery and complex flavors that our entrees are renowned for.

We ordered a dish from the triple chili page, from the double chili page and from the "mild" page. All dishes were nice but the triple chili dish was a real challenge and although we both like spicy food we didn't manage to finish it.
It's not a cheap place but we enjoyed the ambiance and the service was efficient and engaging.
Would absolutely recommend but you will need to really enjoy spicy food.

Beware, if you are not into spicy food stay away. Seriously, just because you toss Tabasco sauce on everything doesn't make fit enough to enjoy this meal, you still have much to learn. I'm talking to the eating fresh hot peppers, multiple kinds of death sauce in your fridge kinda spicy lovers.

This place is for the experienced chiliphiles only.

Just about every spicy item on the menu is designed to get you sweating.

Would I go again? Absolutely, this is one of my favorites in Hong Kong...

must try foodie experience for mouth numbing schechuan spice and flavors.
Must book as tiny hole in the wall place but nicely decorated and dimly lit. Make sure to order preemptive cooling drinks like white wine or lychee soda.
Try the dumplings in chilli and peanut sauce and chilli chicken. The crab shell was too spicy to fully enjoy. The duck dish was a nice change from the spice as was the fried rice. Must Finish with the chilli chocolate ice cream to complete the experience!
A sensory journey not to be missed!
