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.

Those who enjoyed spicy Chinese would appreciate this place which is almost as good as the Michelin place in Happy Valley but much lower in price. Their garlic thin sliced pork belly with dark sauce is surly the best in town....

‘San Xi Lou’ derives its name from the Qianlong Emperor’s Imperial Study ‘San Xi Tang’, built to house the emperor’s collection of calligraphies. All calligraphies bearing the seal of ‘San Xi Tang’ are known as priceless treasures. Continuing the tradition of the Imperial Study ‘San Xi Tang’, dishes created from San Xi Lou’s kitchen are also truly unique culinary treasures!
