China is a country with incredible diversity in its cuisines. The differences were originally based around the regions where the tastes developed, but these days it is possible to enjoy the different styles almost everywhere in China. Read more about Chinese food.
We know that our customers want to experience the true tastes of China, so we have prepared these menus to help you to venture out of the hotels and tourist restaurants and into the places where the locals eat. The staff in these restaurants probably will not speak or understand English.
We have provided menus with the dishes written in English and Chinese characters. This means you can select the dish and use the menu to point to the name dish written in Chinese. Pronunciations are also included for you to listen for and ordering verbally.
It is customary in China to select one dish for each person at the table to share. This means that if you have 5 people, you may select 3 meat dishes and 2 vegetable dishes, but in the end it's up to you. See “How to Order Chinese Food”.
