Get your chilli fix in the new year at Black Sheep’s upcoming new restaurant, Grand Majestic Sichuan

Just days after the reopening of Ho Lee Fook, Black Sheep Restaurants have announced the opening of their next restaurant concept—Grand Majestic Sichuan, a Sichuan restaurant that blends together European-style service, luxe restaurant touches and fiery hot Sichuan dishes. 

Set to open in January 2022, Grand Majestic Sichuan will be located in Central’s Alexandra House. Inside, the restaurant promises to be a luxurious escape from the city, featuring a grand dining room dressed in marble and silk, two bars, and a lush terrace. The name, Grand Majestic Sichuan is a nod to the now-closed Majestic Restaurant & Nightclub, an iconic Cantonese restaurant in North Point during the 1960s.

The menu is a collaboration between head chef Robert Wong, previously of of award-winning Sichuan restaurant Chilli Fagara, and Fuchsia Dunlop, an English writer and cook who specialises in the art of Sichuan cuisine. Dunlop has written several culinary books on Sichuan cuisine, such as Sichuan Cookery and Land of Plenty. She has also appeared as a Chinese food expert on multiple television shows including Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown and David Chang’s Ugly Delicious. 

“My introduction to Black Sheep Restaurants was a stunning Sri Lankan dinner at Hotal Colombo, cooked by chef Gizzy, and ever since then, I have been a great admirer of the group's imaginative and ground-breaking contributions to the Hong Kong restaurant scene," says Dunlop. 

"I am beyond delighted to be collaborating on the menu for Grand Majestic Sichuan, a restaurant devoted to the thrilling and irresistible flavours of a region I fell in love with nearly 30 years ago." 

Grand Majestic Sichuan is set to open in January 2022.
