The "Eight Treasures" (babao in Chinese), also known as the "Eight Precious Things" and the "Eight Auspicious Treasures", are symbols of good luck and prosperity.
It may consist of eight ordinary symbols, the eight precious organs of the Buddha's body, the eight auspicious signs, or the various emblems of the eight Taoist Immortals. The most commonly seen members of the Eight Treasures include the coin, ruyi sceptre, coral, chime stone, lozenge, rhinoceros horn, silver ingot and the flaming pearl.
In Buddhism, the Eight Treasures (Eight Auspicious Symbols) include the lotus (purity/enlightenment), Wheel of the Dharma (knowledge), treasure vase (wealth), conch shell (Buddha's thoughts), victory banner (Buddha's teachings conquer all), endless knot (harmony), parasol (protection) and fish pair (happiness in marriage).

I was thrilled to discover 8 Treasures in a convenient location while staying in a part of town unfamiliar to me for business. The atmosphere was pleasant and relaxing, the staff attentive, the pricing fair, and some of the most delicious food I've had! I plan to find an excuse to be in the neighboorhood again just so I can go to 8 Treasures!
