If you're in the market for hot and spicy food, this is the place to go. Great set lunch and value for money. excellent service and the tables offer good space.

I have been dining with Qi for quite awhile, at least 6-7 times in the past 6 months; been supporting the business during quarantine, when they only have maximum two three tables of guests at peak hours. I was here tonight with my family, the...food is still good but honestly very very disappointed with the quality of service - my family and I have decided to visit Qi very last minute today, we totally understand if they are busy so we called ahead and see if they have a table. As they have no table indoor so they asked if we are ok with outdoor seating, assured us there is a fan, afterall, it was 30 degree celsius. With the reassurance, we arrived at the restaurant only to find out they only have one fan for one table which the diners seem very close to the staffs, and our table was left at a burning hot corner. We waited around 10 minutes until finally someone was here to take the order, and we asked very politely if they could move us indoor if there is any indoor seat became available later, because we were all soaking in our sweats. The waiter, was soooo rude, and just said there is no table indoor. I mean, obviously, we see that, thus we were asking if the arrangement would be possible later instead of demanding something impossible. More importantly, we were promised with a fan outdoor to begin with- we would not come here, with our right mind, if we knew there would not be a fan at outdoor seating, to have spicy food, under a 30 degree Celsius temperature. The waiter was like, ya we have fan, just that one. Thank you very much - I guess I understand now why they have lost that one Michelin star - I do not expect amazing service, but basic manner, which is obviously not available.More

Not for the faint hearted. It’s not our first time and most dishes are spicy. If you are not fond of the numbing chillies used in Sichuan cooking this is probably not your kind of restaurant. The set menu is very and very well priced....Portions are generous so it’s good to share. Service is efficient and friendly.More

Mind-blowing good food! The best Szechuan food I’ve ever had! You should try the double cooked pork! The house cocktail (Red Dragon) is awesome

This Sichuan restaurant is located in Wanchai J Senses, with Michelin 1-star status for the last four years but in the recent 2020 list was taken out. The restaurant offers authentic Sichuan dishes so if you cannot take spicy food you might need to rethink...coming here for the explosive flavors. Coming here on Christmas Eve, we opted to sit inside but in fact there are a nice terrace where diners can enjoy the view from the street on the balcony. The decor is modern with the dark tone mixed with red, quite comfortable if you are sitting on the sofa, but for those on the other side you might need to be excused when other diners or staff walk behind you, with the distance between the chairs and the glass wall quite narrow. The appetizers provided are really spicy and got us a taste of what to come. We ordered Smashed Cucumber ($60) to start as cold appetizer. The cucumber was crunchy and seasoned nicely, refreshing and I found it a nice balance to neutralize some of the spicy dishes I had afterwards. Then we had Hot and Sour Soup ($60). This is a signature dish and I totally agree, with the soup having the great balance of hot and sour. For the local flavors it would be on the spicy side, and while I enjoyed every single drop of the soup I also kept on sweating profusely. There are also plenty of ingredients, with the pig's blood, shredded pork, mushroom, tofu and others all contributing to the soup. One of the best hot and sour soup in town, but you might want to dial down the spiciness if you are not used to Sichuan cuisine. Next comes Impossible Mapo Tofu ($130). Instead of the normal beef, this dish is using the impossible meat, a plant-based protein which got similar texture and flavors to the beef, and I found it a good match in this dish. The tofu is smooth and the sauce spicy but not overly so, full of flavors and a great dish with rice. Having something non-spicy, we also got Sweet and Sour Iberico Pork Collar ($180). Very colourful in presentation, the pork collar has been deep-fried first to maintain a crunchy surface while a soft and moist interior. The sweet and sour sauce is very nicely done, highlighting both the elements perfectly without masking each other, and the bell pepper and pineapple are a great complement too. Next we had another signature dish, the Crispy Diced Chongqing Style Chicken with Cashew Nut ($235). Great in aromas even before eating, the diced chicken is very nicely deep-fried to make it crispy but not overly dry, and I also like the fact the flavors of the different spices and chili are fully absorbed into the chicken, unlike in many other restaurant the chicken are simply deep-fried then mixed with the chili without the flavors. There also also plenty of chicken pieces too. A must-try in this restaurant in my opinion. We also ordered a Steamed Bun ($55) which is nice, with the condensed milk provided to dip for those who like the pairing. For dessert we had Red Bean Pancake ($75). The red bean paste is nice, appropriately sweetened but not overly so, with the pancake deep-fried but not showing much oiliness. A great conclusion to the meal. The service is overall decent, but like most Chinese restaurants there is no sufficient interactions from the staff to diners, explaining the dishes or checking in the food. The bill was $1,237 and for 3 person I think the price is very reasonable and if you like spicy food, this one is a good recommendation.More

Great Sichuan food, must visit if you want to eat some good spicy Chinese food. The food quality is top notch and very consistent, can vouch for this since I have visited frequently during my several visits to HK.

We are completely vegetarian. We had many veg options. Starting from starters to main course all was perfect. Would definitely suggest it to my family & friends. Good ambience, excellent vegetarian food. I would definitely go again.

I came to this restaurant because we knew for sure it was hard to get a table on a normal day, it just so happened this week that there were “events” going on in the city which meant obtaining a table would be easy. So...that was great and all, quick and easy booking, hardly anyone in the establishment. Good points : -cater for vegetarian where they used impossible meats to make super tasty Sichuan dishes for non meat eaters to appreciate. -They certainly put the spice in spicy (if thats your cup of tea) Bad points - let’s start with a simple concept of not conning people. When you sit down, the waiter will put some small “nibbles” which is very common as a pre starter in Asia (I.e peanuts). We had a feeling this was probably a chargeable item even though it was not mentioned anywhere. We moved this to the side of the table and didn’t touch it for the remainder of the dinner. When the bill came, it was featured on the bill. When we explained that we didn’t touch it , the waiter told us we needed to have told him we didn’t want it when we sat down. This was not mentioned by the waiter nor the menu. The price of this surprise item was about the the same as a Big Mac from the local Maccy d’s , not a lot in comparison to the price of each other item, but principally not expected from a Michelin 1 star. - even though we came on the quietest day of the week with very little diners due to an “event” in the city, the food did come out slow. In fact the last dish was forgotten twice. I mean the dumplings were good but not ideal when it takes 25 mins extra for no apparent reason - we ordered the fish in chilli oil (shui zhu yu), the signature dish in any Sichuan restaurant. Visually it looked great, big bowl, lots of chillies. Upon tasting the fish, it was evident that the fish was not fresh. The fish had a slightly rotten flavour which could be tasted on top of the abundance of chillies and seasoning. Upon asking the waiter, he explained that’s their way of cooking this dish and that’s how it should be like. I am not from Sichuan nor am I an expert, but I am pretty sure the fish should not taste like the bottom of the Dead Sea. The waiter didn’t offer to take it away the first time we enquired, but instead explained further about their cooking technique. By the time he finished his explanation, the fish was cold and tasted closer to vomit. We demanded it to be taken away. This Michelin star dining experience left a bad taste in my mouth (literally). I am sure any Sichuan place could have given us a better diving experience. Granted not every place uses impossible meats, but that’s a very minor point when they couldn’t even get the basics and classics right. Anyway we left, and that was the end of that. We actually went down to five guys downstairs for an extra bite to eat considering the largest main dish was inedible. Can’t say we’ll be making a return anytime soon as I can think of several places which would be better around the area for the same style of food.More

Reasonable prices for extremely delicious food. Both my partner and I are huge fans of Asian food. This was incredible. Wish we would have found out about it earlier. Definitely deserves its michelin star. Very friendly staff as well. Soo happy we went here!! Thank...you staff of Qi for making our food travel to Hongkong end on an amazing note <3More

Deilsh! We had a great dinner. We ordered a pork dish which was the hottest level they had it was great. Good flavor and really spicy! We also ordered a medium spice beef dish which was also really good but I'm not sure we could...event get the heat because the mala dish was so hot. Might be best to order all the same heat level if sharing. We also had the mango mochi for dessert and it was so refreshing, very simple with fresh mango wrapped in glutinous rice/mochi but so good!More
