This restaurant opened in July, in Nations Park area (15 minutes driving from Lisbon downtown) and immediately was included in our have-to-try restaurant list. We’d say that even with different levels of chili (chosen by you), you have to be into spices somehow, otherwise you’ll not fancy this restaurant.

The cuisine is from the Chinese region of Sichuan and please be prepared to get your mouth heated!

The menu includes some cold and hot dishes’ selection (picked from an iPad but you can ask for the paper menu) and it’s supposed to be shared. We love the Shredded pork, the Twice-cooked pork, the Sliced beef in hot chili oil (the portion is massive), the Chinese water plant and what they call the Honey sweet, meaning “fried gluey cubes with sweet caramel sauce on top” (just created our own name for this!) for dessert. If you’re a deep spicy fish lover and you’re hungry, order the Homestyle or Spicy Fish.

Don’t miss: Book a table upstairs by the window from where you can have a better view and get more privacy

Hot tip: If you get a bill superior to 100,00€ they will offer you a 20% discount voucher upon your next visit (until a specific set date) and just be careful with the kitchen closing time – 10:30PM – and make sure you order in advance so you don’t get frustrated at the end
