Opened in late-2010, Transit has become one of the capital's most fashionable eateries with its inspired interiors that mix the feel of an imperial boudoir with undertones of Parisian design. A main dining room is captured under an exposed rafter ceiling concealed with arrangement of pentagon-shaped ceiling tiles illuminated by brass-accented chandeliers. Walls strewn in draped fabric surround a modernist collection of furnishings from cubist dining chairs to tufted banquettes usually infused with lively DJ mixing international lounge anthems day and night. 

The Food

Contemporary Sichuan cuisine is offered in a fashionable restaurant setting with a mix of ala carte dinner options that vary from raw-bar offerings of carpaccio and sashimi-style white fish and Hamachi to intricate salads of exotic lettuces and produce. Main dishes include chargrilled and baked specialties of select-cut fillet, seafood and select poultry dishes artfully presented on chunky porcelain dinnerware.

Last Word

Santilun restaurant and lounge mixes Parisian supper club vibe with classic Sichuan menu.
