Fodor's Review

A striking silver mural of a kirin (a mythical dragonlike creature) presides over this elegant two-tier restaurant, one of the best choices for Chinese food downtown. Specialties here are northern Chinese and Szechuan dishes, which tend to be richer and spicier than the Cantonese cuisine served at Kirin's other locations. If you're adventurous, start with the spicy jellyfish, redolent with sesame oil. Then try the Peking duck or a fresh seafood dish. Dim sum is served daily at midday.
