The Chinese way of dining is different than in Western Countries. It is an important social event. People sit at a round table. In the middle of the table is a turntable with the food on. There are many different kinds of food. The turntable is turned regularly and you pick the food from the plates with a spoon or chopsticks. This way you get to taste many different things and choose the things you like. You can eat as much or as little as you want. The amount of food is enough so that there is a leftover on most plates. Nobody shall leave the table hungry. During the meal there are discussions and due to the round table the whole group is integrated. It is a very nice and enjoyable way of eating.
