To celebrate Chinese New Year, Royal China Restaurants across London will give each table a special red envelope, with some of the envelopes within each restaurant revealing a special gift.

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 restaurants will also 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 each restaurant will host Lion Dance performances from 7 February till 13 February to bring good luck and fortune for the New Year. The performances will take place at each restaurant at the following times:

Royal China Baker Street: Thursday 7 February at 7:00pm & Monday 11 February at 7:30pm

Royal China Club:  Thursday 7 February at 8:00pm

Royal China Queensway: Friday 8 February at 7:30pm

Royal China Riverside: Tuesday 12 February at 7:00pm

Royal China Fulham: Wednesday 13 February at 1:00pm
