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 aims to define the best of classical Cantonese food.

There is no fusion of dishes nor compromise on classical recipes, all are prepared with the freshest ingredients and traditional spices and flavourings. No mono-sodium-glutomate (MSG) shall be used.

The decoration of China Tang will evoke a romantic sense of art deco of the thirties in line with the general architecture of the Dorchester Hotel. At the same time, there will be an abundance of Chinoiserie as well as a collection of art from both.

SET LUNCH MENU @ £27.50 AVAILABLE DAILY UNTIL 3.30PM

Children of all ages are welcome to China Tang up to 8pm
From 8pm we are happy to welcome children aged ten years and over into the restaurant only

With so many restaurants offering limited Gluten free options, I was extremely impressed with my options. In fact China Tang made every effort in offering me all my favourites in Gluten free versions. There was no comprise on food flavour so a definite must for those looking for Authenic food with incredible choice. I have dine here now on many occasions and its time to leave such a positive review. Those with allergies, I recommend the food without question and of course not to mention the friendly staff and excellent service.
5 Star for me

We’ve eaten at CT on a number of occasions and it never disappoints. The service, food and ambiance are all excellent and we had a super meal as usual. It’s not cheap but offers a lovely experience for a special occasion.

It’s in the Dorchester so it’s fairly serious off the bat. It’s a beautiful space. The service was great. The food was equally so. It can get a bit loud given it’s acoustics but definitely worth the visit and on the list for a return next time in London.

Extremely disappointed with the food in this so called fine dining Chinese restaurant. Based on the interior decor and price of their menu you would expect the food to be amazing. The food tastes like a generic Chinese take away. If you would like a delicious up market Chinese meal, go to Hutong or Hakkasan. On another note, it seemed as if asian/black people were sat in the middle of the restaurant whilst white people were sat in the more cosy side end. This seemed very odd but not sure if it was just a coincidence. The middle section is extremely annoying as you constantly have waiters smacking in your seats whilst they walk.

We love it there. In the face of so many options in London, we keep coming back to you. One important note: The little FRIED ONION APPETIZERS were disappointing. They contained virtually no onions, were just bland, bready, and not tasty at all. All the other dishes did not disappoint—were delicious! Your servers were superb!

Stunning, 5 out 5 on every level. The staff were courteous and you could tell they love what they do.

My guest requested for recommendations as we wanted to try something new and different, the outcome was uncontrollable gust of woaaahhh on every bite.

The aubience was cool and enchanting.
The portions was befitting of the price tag. Outstanding value for money.

Lovely, definitely going back.

Another fine afternoon at China Tang. Running a little late due to demonstration and transport disruption outside; however, all calm at the restaurant. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the lunchtime set menu. Only "wrinkle" was some spilled wine, all rectified very efficiently by the staff. After lingering over tea, coffee and petit fours, the madness outdoors had dissipated and the efficient Dorchester lobby staff arranged a cab to Victoria to send us safely en route back home. Look forward to returning.

Too busy, cramped and noisy. Service was very good though.
I had requested a "nice table" (for two), but did not get it. We were stuck between two noisy groups - certainly was not what I expected. Tables too close to each other and tables had to be moved for the neighbouring guests to get out.

I took my boyfriend for his Birthday meal as a surprise but we just didn't feel the quality in food or service.

The food wasn't as flavoursome as I remember it being previously and the service wasn't amazing. It felt as if they wanted to just feed us and get us out.

When we asked for recommendation on noodles we were told which ones were nice but nothing to suggest that the main we had ordered wouldn't go well with them.

The meat sizzling dish we ordered hardly had any flavour it just looked good but that was all. We listed a chicken dish with chilli and that was just so dry.

The starters were also standard apart from the salt and pepper prawns which were nice.

Overall I don't think I would recommend or go back for food.

We were assigned various waiters (a shift change i presume) during our lunch which meant there was a lack of communication/information lost.

We were served half of our main dishes and then told that the kitchen needed an additional 20 minutes to provide the rest meaning we had 2 dishes with no rice/noodles to eat them with.

We had to remind the restaurant several times that we needed our second course of duck.

Overall service was extremely disappointing for a restaurant of this calibre.

The place has a great ambiance... we have been there many time for dim sums and lunch but this was the first time we went for dinner.
Great place for dim sums but I wouldn’t rate it for normal dining! I also feel the service isn’t that great despite the amount of staff present!
