Exceptional Chinese cuisine amidst sumptuous art-deco interiors of Hong Kong fine-dining restaurant
March 31st, 2016
First launched in 2007 as a fine-dining Chinese restaurant within London’s prestigious The Dorchester Hotel, China Tang was conceived by renowned local fashion and lifestyle brand entrepreneur Sir David Tang (founder of Shanghai Tang, the China Club, and Island Tang restaurant among others). An offshoot of the London China Tang restaurant was established within Hong Kong’s upscale Landmark Atrium in December 2013, offering a discerning local clientele the same exceptional regional Chinese cuisines and opulent dining atmosphere as its acclaimed London sibling. Under the direction of three-Michelin-starred Chef Albert Au Kwok Keung, the experienced China Tang chefs prepare menus featuring authentic cuisines from Beijing, Sichuan and Canton. Guests are transported to another era within the splendid circa 1930’s Shanghai art deco inspired furnishings of the spacious main dining room, elegant private dining rooms, and exquisite cocktail bar and lounge. An impressive venue for special occasion dining, or sociable dim sum and cocktails at the bar, the colonial-era elegance and exceptional Chinese cuisines of China Tang make for memorable culinary experiences.
Design Meticulously detailed, the sumptuous interiors of China Tang evoke the unrestrained glamour of the art deco period. Hand-painted and hand-embroidered wallpapers, original Chinese artwork, and exquisitely upholstered dining chairs are matched with antique light fittings, objets d’art, and etched mirrors to create elegantly stylish dining spaces. In addition to the main open dining area seating 48 guests, a series of six individually decorated private dining rooms exude privilege and exclusivity.
Cuisine The expansive menu at China Tang includes superb renditions of dishes drawn from the leading regional cuisines of Beijing, Sichuan and Canton, while a separate dim sum menu offers an appetising array of superior quality of the local delicacies. Signature dishes include the Steamed Lobster Dumpling; China Tang Signature Barbecued Pork (belly underside of Kurobuta); Pork belly roll with mashed garlic & chili oil; Braised E-Fu Noodle with Langoustine; and Steamed Beef Balls wrapped with tofu sheet.
Beverages A top-notch wine list includes rare vintages from premier wineries listed under the Library Collection, supplemented with a thoughtfully-curated broad selection of leading international wine labels. At the cocktail bar, expect polished execution of classic cocktails made with premium spirits and ingredients – epitomised by the excellent Boulevardier – with Buffalo Trace Bourbon, Rinomato bitter, Mancino Vermouth Rosso; and the Classic Martini – made to order from gin or vodka, vermouth.
China Tang opens daily with lunch served from 12pm and dinner service commences at 6pm. The bar is open from 12pm until closing, serving drinks and a dim sum and sweets menu all day. Table and private room bookings are essential.
