“Great Spicy Taste”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2014

Recommended by one of my friends as an amazing place to go to if you are willing to set your mouth on fire...The place is quite small but the taste of the food is one of a kind! Truly amazing Sichuan food, spicy and yet tasteful! Great ambiance and the staff understood exactly what kind of level of spiciness we required! Definitely a recommended restaurant for spice lovers!!

“Spicy & Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014

We went with a group of friends to Chilli Fagara. They gave us booking for one hour - 12 noon to 1 PM. At 1 PM sharp, we were told to exit the place which was extremely efficient on their part. The food was great. It was spicy & flavourful. Being an Indian, we were not very put off by the high level of spice.
The decor was very local chinese which added to the experience.

Overall, a great experience & will go again.

“Excellent !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

Fantastic food... went around looking for something spicy in Hong Kong and this restaurant came highly recommended..... It's been a while but we still have very fond memories of Chilli Fagara.

The food was scrumptious, ambience excellent, and priced well for the quality of what you get.

They've figured out a way to include spice in such a manner that it doesn't overpower the taste of the food being served.

Loved it and it really was a fabulous experience. Will go back if I return to Hong Kong.

“Excellent Sichuan place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

If you want to taste Sichuan food, it's the place to go : the food is - of course - spicy but so delicious. There are different levels of spices. Favorite dishes : spicy dumplings, mabo tofu and sizzling eggplants. It's better to book as the place is small and very popular.

“A superb experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

If you don't like seriously spicy food - then don't write TA reviews complaining about this restaurant!

If you don't like seriously squashed seating - then don't write TA reviews complaining about this restaurant!

If neither of the above bother you - then get a reservation ASAP (it appears they only have seating for approximately 20 persons) and experience a meal at what just about amounted to the favourite restaurant of my wife and I (it was a toss-up between this and a Michelin 3 star establishment) during our five day stay in Hong Kong.

Wonderfully tasty food, extremely friendly, swift and helpful service. The tables are so close together that you can't help but have some banter with your dining neighbours.

I would re-visit this place in a heartbeat. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!
