Best restaurant in Zetland on what are the dos at a Chinese restaurant?

The Chinese culture is full of meanings and it is interesting to know a few dining tips when dining at a Chinese restaurant.

Typically, your left hand will hold the bowl of rice and right hand will hold the chopsticks. Then bring the bowl close to your mouth and use the chopsticks to lift into your mouth. Do not chew loudly like how the Japanese do when they eat ramen. It is also considered accepted to shovel rice grains while bringing the bowl of rice close to your mouth if you are not skillful with chopsticks.

While waiting for the next course of food, place your chopsticks on the chopstick rest instead of on the rice bowl. Do not cross your chopsticks too.

It is common for the host to serve the guest of honour the best morsel such as the cheek of the fish. However, if you are unwilling to eat it, graciously let your host place it on your plate and just leave it. Same thing when you are full but your host keeps on piling food on your plate. 

With these useful dining tips presented to you by the best Chinese restaurant in Zetland, East Phoenix Chinese Restaurant, you will be able to impress your host.
