Fodor's Review

A striking silver mural of a kirin, a mythical dragonlike creature, presides over this elegant two-tier restaurant. 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 the sautéed lobster meat served with a deep-fried lobster claw. Dim sum is served daily.
