Golden Rice Bowl Restaurant is Offering 20% Off Until March 12th; States that AHS Shutdown was Untrue

The owners of Golden Rice Bowl have placed an ad in a local Chinese newspaper stating that their apparent shutdown by Alberta Health Services was “gossip”, and are now offering 20% off until March 12th of this year in an attempt to gather people into the restaurant after news of the shutdown had gone viral. (Over 50,000 people saw the article on Shoutout Edmonton. It is our most viewed story of the year thus far.)

According to the original poster’s comment on reddit, their parents went in earlier today and the restaurant was packed.

If there are any fluent Chinese speakers in our community, I would be very thankful if you could please translate the ad in the photo for us please. Thank you!
