In China they make it a big deal to present the best food to their elders. That is a way of respect at the table or while eating.
When eating there will be a host, you must also show respect to them. When you are there you are not allowed to eat until the host tells you to start. They see it as a form of disrespect if you eat before being told.
When eating it is determined on how you look & gifts you must bring. It all depend on the master of the banquet.
While dining its loud & noisy which is a way of showing that the food & is good.
