During the week-long event in 2013, each participating restaurant will present an exclusive 3-course Restaurant Week menu for lunch, dinner or both, for a fixed price starting from RMB48 for lunch or RMB98 for dinner.
Some of the returning restaurants include Guangzhou's favorite Edge, Prime Steakhouse and Four seasons (The China Hotel, A Marriott hotel), Paulaner Brauhaus, Noble Café and la Seine restaurant and many more.
