The best restaurant in Parramatta explains bad table manners

Chinese cuisine has become a part of everyone’s life in some ways. Most of us should be able to name at least 5 Chinese dishes. But how many of us are actually aware of the Chinese table manners? There are a lot of meanings behind almost every element of the Chinese culture. The best restaurant in Parramatta will go into a little detail about Chinese table manners.

The main utensil in Chinese culture is the chopsticks and since it is an eating tool, do not use it for other purposes like play drums on the table etc. It is also rude and unsightly to suck sauce off the ends of the chopsticks at any point of the meal.

Also, chopsticks comes in a pair for picking food up, but not spearing, a lot of us are guilty of this. However, it is acceptable to use chopsticks to break larger chunks of food into smaller pieces.

Avoid using chopsticks as pointers, it is rude to point at food or at anyone. Never use chopsticks as a digging tool to look for a ‘special’ piece of food.

Our Parramatta restaurant puts an emphasis on these table manners as they are a part of our culture and we hold them to a high regard! We want our guests to also be apart of our culture, so be sure to take note on how to use chopsticks properly.
