Chef Ricky Hung, who flew to the Kingdom all the way from Kempinski Hotel Xiamen, China, for the Chinese Food Festival, said that he will accommodate Saudi dining tastes, and will introduce the Chinese cuisine to the hotel’s guests in an innovative way. He said he expects to attract the attention of all gourmet lovers and encourage them to attend the festival.

Chef Jackie Kwan, who also came from the Kempinski Hotel Xiamen in China, said that he would use his vast experience in preparing a Chinese buffet offering a variety of authentic Chinese cuisine, as well as the most famous desserts.

Last year’s Chinese festival at Burj Rafal Hotel Kempinski was a hit among the guests, who especially loved the live-cooking station, appetizers, main dishes, desserts and beverages. 

The hotel management said that it will continue to present many surprises for the guests.

Burj Rafal Hotel Kempinski comprises 23 floors and is a 25-minute drive from King Khaled International Airport. Guests can enjoy the best views of the city from its 349 luxury guest rooms and suites and a variety of dining experiences in its three restaurants and three cafés and lounges.
