Oversize statues of emperors are meant to evoke 11th-century China in these spaces that would feel like museums if you turned the sound off. But the sound is never off. Classic rock and conversational din bounce off the hard surfaces and make for a loud, buzzy scene.

What to get: Spiced-chicken lettuce wraps; steamed shrimp dumplings; wok-seared ribs Chang’s style or Northern style with five-spice salt; lemon-pepper shrimp with chives; Chengdu spiced lamb with cumin and mint; stir-fried eggplant with scallions and chilis.
