Celebrate Chinese New Year 2019 at Royal China
30 January 2019
It’s the Chinese New Year tomorrow, Tuesday 5 February, and to celebrate, Royal China Restaurants across London will give each table a special red envelope with some containing special gifts.
Each “lei see”, as they are pronounced in Cantonese, will offer a fortune message; with some of the red envelopes containing a prize. The special prizes include a voucher for a complimentary meal up to the value of £100, a bottle of champagne, and a complimentary glass of wine.
Red envelopes are usually presented at social events such as weddings and the Lunar New Year. The red colour of the envelope symbolises good luck and is said to ward off evil spirits.
The Royal China on Baker Street (not to be confused with the Royal China Club) will be offering a special Chinese New Year menu and will host Lion Dance performances to celebrate the beginning of the Year of the Pig.
In keeping with tradition and to bring good luck and fortune for the New Year, there will be Lion Dance performances on Thursday 7 February at 7:00pm and on Monday 11 February at 7:30pm.
