Food & Beverage:
The menu must have the following:
  • Fresh fruits selection
  • Must have the following basic Chinese sauces:
    • Oyster Sauce
    • Black Bean and Garlic Sauce
    • Soy sauce
    • Soybean Paste
    • Chili Sauce
    • Sesame Oil
    • Hoisin Sauce

Optional:

  • One (or more) choices of Chinese dishes such as:
    • Noodles
    • Spring roles
    • Meat or fish Chinese dishes
    • Dim sum selection

A choice of Chinese dishes may be out of place for a restaurant with a specific type of cuisine (French cuisine, Italian cuisine, burger house etc.) that is why it’s not compulsory for the theme restaurant to have a small choice of Chinese dishes but it’s strongly suggested. These specific choices can only appear in the Chinese translation of the menu so the rest of the customers won’t get confused about the identity of the restaurant.

In order for a restaurant to earn five dragons, must do the following in addition to those of the first four dragons.
  • At least one Chinese speaking employee
  • One (or more) Chinese alcoholic beverages eg. Huangjiu
