"China Restaurant Week is in its 11th year and has become one of the most anticipated dining events of the year for gastronomes. We are proud and ever-thrilled to give diners the opportunity to discover new restaurants and have new and exciting experiences through this nationwide event," says Toine Rooimans, DiningCity Managing Director. "We have a lineup of over 500 participating restaurants this year. We hope to continue expanding our options for diners and increase the diversity of Restaurant Week. In our experience, first-tier city consumers prefer a wide range of international cuisines and options while second-tier cities prefer local cuisine and down-to-earth eateries. We will also explore opportunities to cooperate with restaurants and categories that are popular with the local markets, bringing diners a more targeted selection of options. We hope that more diners could enjoy this delicious feast of culinary experiences and sensational meals."
Canton Table's Deputy General Manager Omar Enrique Lopez says, "We have participated in the China Restaurant Week countless times. And we have earned the loyalty of more customers through this event. I think the event is an important reason that has indirectly contributed to the success of our Cantonese restaurant on the Bund. It is also noteworthy that participating Restaurant Week is great for diners to experience high-quality restaurants at a reasonable price. That is not only exciting for the diner, but for us too. As restaurant operators, we have to continue keeping things exciting for guests, so they'll appreciate our efforts in return."
