Year of the Rat Celebrations at Tattu

Dates and times

Minerva, , 29 E Parade, , Leeds, LS1 5PS

Contemporary Chinese restaurant group Tattu will host a season of spectacular cultural celebrations for Chinese New Year and to mark the customary Chinese Lantern Festival which symbolises the wish for a bright future.

The Year of the Rat will see each restaurant transform its interior with the installation of traditional red paper lanterns amongst the captivating cherry blossoms. The first of the 12 zodiac signs, the rat is a symbol of wisdom and marks the start of a new cycle in the Chinese calendar. 

To mark the occasion, Tattu has introduced a number of special dishes which take inspiration from traditional new year’s feasting. This year’s bespoke dishes include Chinese Barbecue Chicken with chipotle, sweet soy and picked cucumber (£17) and Red Pepper Lamb Cutlets with Chinese five spice butter and sesame (£25). 

Guests will also be able to raise a glass to the celebrations with a limited-edition cocktail – the delicious Lucky Shui (£11). A Tattu inspired white lady made with gin, homemade Chinese vermouth and lemon.

Ahead of the Chinese Lantern Festival on Saturday 8th February, Tattu will also host traditional lion dance performances for guests to enjoy while they dine during the evening in Leeds that will be on 6th February.

Whether you’re planning a traditional feast with family and friends or looking to take part in a customary event that’s a little different, Tattu’s season of celebrations and unique dishes will ensure a dining experience to remember.
