The most interactive Restaurant Week yet – Restaurant Week Awards
As well as being treated like a VIP during Restaurant Week, diners also get the chance to write a review about their dining experience in terms of service, atmosphere and cuisine. Over 1000 diners wrote reviews on Diningcity.hk in spring resulting in AVA Restaurant Slash Bar winning the Best Restaurant of the Week Award. DiningCity hope to see more diners providing feedback this summer.
Onno Schreurs, Managing Director of DiningCity said: “This year’s Restaurant Week is the most interactive yet! As well as heavily promoting the Week we are using social media to reach foodies across Hong Kong and also spread the word about the Restaurant Week Awards. The feedback has been astounding with 50% increase across both channels in just a matter of weeks.”
