A hidden gem at the Coda Plaza on Macdonnell Road: excellent hot spicy Chinese food and the beauty is that it is not very well patronized ( 2 floors at Coda + new one at Causeway Bay ). Highly recommended....

Food is good. Plenty foreigners came to this place but that doesn't make it touristy. The service is average but all your needs will be sufficiently answered. Nothing can beat the Sichuan style stew fish and sweet tofu here.

Specialized in hot spicy Chinese/Sichuanese food. All typical except that one thing: the Golden Soup Steamed Meat Bun is VERY spicy! To play safe, it’s wiser to order Chicken Soup Steamed Meat Bun!

I came here after reading review on tripadvisor and I was totally happy with my meal. The hotpot was 100 percent Sichuan style. I love the spicy seed they use in this hotpot. The Sichuan toufu was really good too.

Nestled in the mid-levels on Garden Road in central - the best way to get here is by taxi. This is an institution for Sichaun food in HK. They have the Spicy Hot Pot as well as a la carte menu. Both are very good....More
