 Close of Chinese New Year Celebrations at the Grand Palace, Southport

AS did several other Chinese restraints in the area, the grand Palace on Nevill Street, Southport, delayed their celebration of the Chinese New year of the tiger. Bu boy, was it worth the wait? The restaurant was full again for the close of the celebrations and diners were served with 5 courses of sumptuous food, excellently cooked, and delivered by speedy waiters. Soup was followed by an entree of tasty treats after which there was a pause whilst guests decanted to the street to watch 2 Lions dancing and prancing in an amazing agile performance the police diverted the traffic. As usual these dragons/Lions were practioners of the martial arts, from the Tiger Crane Kung Fu on the Wirral.  After they finished the dance they then put on a display of marital art movements and katas/hyungs. Back then to the meal and special rice with 4 accompaniments of flavoursome fish and meat dishes with a fruit salad to follow. During the alter courses the dragons reappeared in search of lucky lettuce which was tied to the ceiling and they took a lively interest in the diners, en route. The exceeding delightful evening culminated with a grand draw in which every table won an exceedingly beautiful vase, or painting, and souvenir decorated mugs and even chopsticks! It was a thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable evening. The Grand Palace deserves praise for its service. We’ll be back!!!! Try it yourselves! To contact the restaurant to book a table, telephone:- 01704 544033 or 01704 543 087. To see last weeks report about the start of the celebrations click on here now!

Lots more pictures will be added very soon to our Southport.TV ebsite, as well as more video footage over the celebrations.
