I have never been THIS disappointed by an expensive restaurant before. I’ll go into detail on each element: Service: the waiters had a bit of an attitude problem. They all had annoyed faces (literately nobody smiled at any point). They didn’t give us the drinks...More

Had a late lunch with friends just before Christmas, food was outstanding. The whole duck that was sliced at the table was really nice and then fresh duck noodles with the other half was lovely. Great surroundings with service to match.. would recommend!

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!
