This year, the Chinese zodiac celebrates a year of good fortune, good wealth and blessings announced by the arrival of the Year of the Dog – and Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at Nile Plaza is ready to begin the celebrations, and ring in the Chinese New Year with a blast.
As the leading Chinese restaurant in Egypt, 8 restaurant has prepared an itinerary laden with festivities, rituals and ceremonies that bring years of treasured Asian traditions right to the heart of the land of the Pharaohs.
Indulge in a selection of succulent dim sum artistically crafted for the brunch buffet, or an extravagantly excellent eight-course dinner menu designed with seamlessly contrasting traditional flavours for the occasion.
The exquisite dishes are served in an unparalleled setting of cherry blossom trees, Chinese lanterns, red envelopes for guests to hang their hopes and dreams for the New Year, and beautiful mandarin centrepieces that symbolise luck and prosperity.
Join the festivities and commence the New Year with an authentic dragon dance beginning at 6:00 pm from the Hotel lobby all the way to the second floor, where more enriching rituals await. Scattered between the cherry blossom and mandarin trees are talented calligraphers who will transcribe a Chinese scroll for guests, and authentic origami artists who will create a souvenir to bring good luck throughout the year.
The New Year celebrations extend from February 16 to 26, 2018, with meticulously crafted food, awe-inspiring traditions and unmatched service at 8 restaurant. Ready for a new wonderful year?
