Sichuan on the Other Side: Qi – Nine Dragons is the Kowloon counterpart of popular Qi – House of Sichuan in Wan Chai. Expect an equally feisty menu in a contemporary setting here.
Look & Feel: Dark woods and rich red upholstery give Qi a too-cool-for-school vibe.
On the Menu: Sichuanese, 2016 version. Mala-spiced noodles, marinated cold dishes, dumplings in chilli oil, and all sorts of tofu, beef and seafood entrees are given a contemporary touch (read: fancy presentation). Signatures include the chilli dungeness crab ($695) and a Sichuan mala chicken ($125)
Great For: A tearful meal, an unconventional date.
FYI: Cocktails and bar snacks are also available to those not looking for a full meal.
