Asian Lunar
February 15-20
You can celebrate Chinese New Year with traditional Pan Asian cuisine such as mapo tofu, ganpengji and dumpling soup, Guangdong style (Guangdong is a province on the South China Sea). And get ready for special fun and surprises all throughout the festival. Quite what that means, were not sure, but we’ve been told they are going to be good.

Hakkasan Special
February 8-March 1
There is a very special menu to celebrate Chinese New Year at Hakkasan at the St. Regis as well, with a nine-course feast on offer. The menu features small eats to start, such as spicy lamb lupin wrap (it is, after all, the Year of the Sheep). Other courses include sea bass and rib-eye beef, all for QR398 per person. Furthermore, inspired by the “Wishing Tree” in Hong Kong, now you can write your wishes on specially designed ribbons placed throughout the restaurant.
