The environment was authentic and calm. The food and the service were also great. And I liked especially the toilets with a recording of poems instead of... More

Loved China Tangs ! The decor made me feel I was in Asia and the atmosphere and service were also perfect. Delicious meal ! We were staying in the hotel so we ate twice here. One evening in the main dining room and one evening in the bar area for a late post theater dim sum supper. Perfect both occasions.

We have been left very disappointed by the food. Only the venue and service were great. The dumplings were average - pak Choi vegetables and asparagus didn't have any flavours. Noodles weren't that good too.

Food of solid quality, but not different from a few places in Chinatown, but the restaurant does not stink of disinfectant. Upscale crowd, the place was packed when we went there. Beijing duck was nice, as was beef in oyster sauce, and sweet and sour pork; singapore noodles was great, spicy, dim sums -- average, a little sticky. Very good... More

Dear Max, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent visit to our restaurant.

We ate at China Tang on Friday night. It’s a lovely setting, good atmosphere and quite a buzzy feel. There’s a choice of the A La Carte and Dim Sum menus, both are extensive and we ordered a mix of dishes from both. Portion sizes are average, apart from the rice, which was tiny! The food was good, tasty and... More

First, you walk through the Dorchester Hotel. This is a treat in itself. You go back in time. Next you enter China Tang. It is Fine Dining, Asian style. We ordered family style and shared a large number of items. We focused on seafood dishes, but everything was great.

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!

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.
