This is the year of the Rabbit in the Chinese calendar and to celebrate The China Sichuan in Sandyford held a reception for 250 of its regular customers. The restaurant, owned and managed by Kevin Hui who took over the reins from his father David, was re-launched last year following a brief closure.

The Year of the Rabbit promises a more placid year from ferocity of the 2010 Year of the Tiger. It will be a year for licking our wounds from battles, to act with discretion and make reasonable concessions without becoming too indulgent. Some of the familiar faces in attendance included Paul and Mary Brady, Trevor White and his parents, Deirdre Kelly and foodie Ernie Whalley.
