A Chinese Banquet is a truly unique experience, rich in culture and tradition and centred around indulgence and abundance. The food often takes the stage at these events, and are an opportunity for hosts both to impress and to express thanks to their guests through extravagant menus offering the finest delicacies of Chinese cuisine.

Menus typically feature a minimum of 8 courses (with the most extravagant events reaching up to 20+!). Each 'course' (one dish) holds a special meaning or blessing and is served to the whole table in the order and timing as decided by the host.

Chef Shenny would like to invite you to host and design your own Chinese banquet experience at HOME. Whether it is for a special occasion or simply a celebration of friends and family, it is the perfect way to enjoy the best of Chinese food and learn about banqueting etiquette, food symbolism, traditions and culture.
