    For Sichuan food, I recently had dinner at San Xi Lou, and was very satisfied with the quality of ingredients and cooking. Good wine list, too. It's near the Botanical Gardens, and a bit pedestrian inaccessible, so I would recommend taking a cab. My food reviews are here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/901098, and their website is here: http://www.topstandard.com.hk/sanxilou/.

      Re: Motorino, it gets good reports in th locl media and is pretty busy with 30 a minute wait at lunch time. However, we were underwhelmed and won't be returning.

            This past March Above and Beyond was better in my opinion

              Agree! But read a bad review about Above & Beyond recently. Hopefully, they'll take action and change since the staff follows Chowhound!!

            Hello Charles,

            For Sichuan I recommend you San Xi Lou. This place is a fixture in my HK rotation. It's located in the Coda Building next to the YWCA. Good variety, portions and prices. Their small plates are great for sharing and for exploring different flavors. Let us know your experience.
