Great decor and beautiful food. Service was first class. A little pricey but worth it. Four of us enjoyed a lovely evening.

Incredible decor as you would expect. We were Transported into the 1920's!!! Service was second to none, incredibly helpful and friendly. Beware the wine list, around twenty pages of selection!!! Our choice ended up being perfect. The food was the superb. Second to none. Perfect dinner was had!!!!!

China tang is one of my many favorites. Excellent food, very tasty flavors and they are nice to accommodate changes. Also excellent wine lists. Their cocktail glasses are a bit small I feel. Food includes all the usual favorites but they never change the menu. Their dim sum selection is so good and great variety. The only minus I have... More

We went there for lunch and we ordered a few dishes of Tim sum. The restaurant is in the basement of Dorchester Hotel. The decor is shanghai 20s style I would say. The food is tasty and well prepared. The Tim sum is traditional classic. The service is poor. It is unwelcoming and the waiters do not seem to care... More

We went as a group of 8 and had a brilliant New Years Eve. Everything from the fantastic bubbly helpful staff, to the delicious food were all very special. There was a wonderful party atmosphere, magician, cartoonist and a disco. All washed down with too much wine, with friends in a beautiful venue, no better way to spend New Years... More

The whole of the Dorchester was rocking last night and no less so at at our chosen venue China Tang. Memorable dishes included Paper Wrapped Prawns, Lamb Dumplings, Taro Cakes, the Classic Peking Duck, Sichuan Braised Dover Sole and an unusually good Sweet and Sour Chicken. Strangely the only let down was the Fresh Lobster with Noodles but that didn't... More

Best Peking Duck anywhere Fantastic service / great wine list and cocktails -- OK it looks like the Shanghai Bar in Indiana Jones and the crowd can be a bit dated -- But, I have never had a bad meal or drink here

Description
Conceived by Sir David Tang, the founder of China Clubs in Hong Kong, Peking and Singapore, as well as the life-style brand, "Shanghai Tang", China Tang offers some of the best and most authentic Cantonese food outside China. Menus do not compromise on classical recipes and all dishes, including its signature Peking Duck are prepared with the freshest ingredients and traditional spices and flavouring (no MSG). The rave reviews won by the food have been matched by the sumptuous interior, which is designed to evoke a romantic sense of the art deco of the Thirties. As well as an abundance of chinoiserie, and quirky objets d'art, the restaurant showcases a collection of both traditional and contemporary Chinese art, all personally chosen by Sir David Tang.In addition to the restaurant, China Tang features an exquisite bar that offers a list of classic cocktails, made to perfection, which can be ordered to accompany the dim sum menu that is served all day. For special occasions, the restaurant also offers diners 3 private dining rooms - Ping, Pang and Pong!

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
