People usually associate Sichuan cuisine with chili, so those with an aversion to spice will generally shake their heads at the prospect. But what if our familiar Guangdong flavours were added to the mix? This fusion is what characterises the menu at 1935, presenting options for diners seeking a little less heat, as well as classic mouth-numbing fare.

Located 19 floors above bustling Wellington Street, 1935 enjoys stunning mountain views of Mid-levels. Its interior, with wooden tables, golden decor, blue velvet sofas and contemporary paintings, mixes classic elegance and modern luxury. 

The restaurant’s name honours the founder’s grandmother, as it is her year of birth. She originally came from Sichuan Province and, on moving south, was inspired by Guangdong gourmets to create dishes combining elements of Sichuan and Guangdong cooking. Continuing that tradition, 1935 presents a new take on Grandma’s secret recipes.
