Chef Jimmy Lee said:

“Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the most important dates in Chinese culture, falling on the 15th day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar during a full moon (Tuesday 25th this year), and an important time for families to be reunited. Our special celebration menu at Lychee Oriental is unique and available for a limited time only and includes moon-cake, traditionally given at Mid-Autumn Festival to honour the moon.”
