Where to go for a good reunion dinner

February is just around the corner and soon the time will come for Spring to beckon.

A reunion dinner marks the closure of the lunar year and the start of the Chinese New Year celebration. Families typically make it a point to get together to catch up on everyone’s lives and also a reunion dinner marks the appreciation of kinship and unity.

While some families prefer to cook their own reunion dinners at home, others are willing to spend a good sum of money at restaurants to indulge in this joyful once-a-year occasion.

Here’s a list of restaurants you can check out for the latter; remember to make your bookings early to avoid disappointment!
