Mike Li


Before arriving at Asian restaurant Sintoho at Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace St Petersburg, Chef Mike Li consistently amazed demanding guests in China by his cuisine. For almost ten years Mike has worked in some of the most prestigious establishments of Sichuan; among those is the famous Flaire restaurant in Chengdu.

Having now moved to St Petersburg, Chef Mike Li presents Sintoho guests a variety of Cantonese cuisine, and he also introduces guests to his signature interpretations of classic Sichuan dishes, such as lots of spicy sauces, sour-and-spicy soups and tofu dishes. In contrast, Cantonese cuisine, from the southern province of Guangdong, is rightfully considered the most diverse among Chinese cuisines, using a lot of seafood, fish and poultry, with local chefs creating a variety of sweet and sour sauces.
