Visited Monogamous with friends during a recent work trip. It was the only taste of HK I had during a week’s stay so was incredibly pleased to come to a small local restaurant like this. It is hidden away three quarters up the mid-levels escalator and I would never have found it on my own. A small place and slightly dated inside but after settling I noticed it had some cool little touches. The food came out quickly and was excellent. Super tasty and very authentic. More Szechuan than Peking food as it was really quite spicy. Highly recommended for a quite local meal night out.

Tucked away and a bit of discreetly placed, it has a faithful audience. Recommends a table reservation if you do not arrive directly at the opening.More foreign visitors than locals, believe that the multitude of visitors appreciate the Chinese cuisine and like a restaurant that serves familiar parts of the animal. Good pricing in a city with high restaurant prices.The decor puts an extra touch on the experience

First visit to Hong Kong and a birthday night out. This came as a recommendation for a Szechuan restaurant. Finding it was fun. We walked by on Caine Road then passed overhead on the escalator.
The restaurant is small and atmospheric and the food was lovely. I think that this was the most interesting meal we had during our stay

We stumbled across this tiny place while exploring the long escalators and we were so pleased we stopped.

To start, we had the fried eggplant, a generous portion of non-greasy, succulent eggplant with a wonderful salty/pepper/crunch topping. The prawn and shrimp dumplings were also good (we had the pan fried).

For mains, we had the chicken stir fry with walnuts, which had a flavorful light brown sauce, and the sizzling spicy prawns, which were some of the largest, tender prawns I’ve ever had.

I overheard someone who sounded like a regular say the crispy sweet and sour chicken is the best around.

Service very attentive and ambiance really interesting, with many original paintings.

In retrospect, I can’t believe we got a table on a Friday night without a reservation. We really lucked out!

Amazing Amazing food, good portion sizes, friendly staff in an amazing location just off the mid-level escalators. Service was very good. Food is at a reasonable price. The beer however is expensive.
