Each culture has its own set of symbolism and blessings, in the Chinese culture there is an abundance and each of the courses we enjoyed had some sort of significance, one is good fortune, others are prosperity, joy, togetherness and many more. The restaurant is one of the more fancy Chinese restaurants in the city, and it was a pleasure to celebrate and dine with friends.
