Run by Hong Kong's largest restaurant chain, Maxim's, this eatery serves Hunan cuisine that has been watered down for Hong Kongers' mild palates. The elegant black-and-white decor resembles a European restaurant more than a typical Chinese joint. Dishes may not be spicy-hot, but the signature dish—codfish fillet with fried minced beans, a chewy and nutty bean paste—is well worth trying. So is the smooth Hunan chicken soup with minced chicken and pork, served in a small
porcelain container. Those who like the orange-color sweet-and-sour sauce may want to try the Beijing-style deep-fried prawns in chili sauce.
