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. At the same time, there will be an abundance of Chinoiserie as well as a collection of art from both.

SET LUNCH MENU @ £35.00 AVAILABLE DAILY UNTIL 3.30PM

Private Dining

Make a booking with China Tang in one of our Private Dining Rooms and you will enter into the inner sanctum of China Tang dining. The perfect setting for a special occasion, whether it be family and friends or a corporate dinner.

Service was poor compared with previous visit.
Dirty cutlery was left on the table after starters and stained the table cloth. Was also expected to use the same cutlery for mains!
Food was great though.

Second high end Chinese restaurant we’ve been to in London. Compared to Min Jiang at the Royal Garden Hotel, China Tang was superior in every way except the view obviously. Peking Duck was very good; whole sea bass was fileted and served steamed with ginger/green onions. Very fresh, good quality soup by the bowl - had a melon soup (wife) and crab/corn soup (myself) - light dessert of a very large fruit plate.

Dear Guest, I am so sorry you were kept waiting for your table and were seated so late. Saturday evenings are notoriously busy at China Tang. This of course is no excuse at all, and would be grateful if you would be so kind as to share the details of the name the reservation was made under so that we may look into what went wrong. Please do email us direct at heng.liu@chinatanglondon.co.uk. We look forward to hearing from you and do sincerely hope this will not deter you from visiting us again.

The food lacked flavour. I've definitely had better Chinese food. I would say you are paying for the service and location. The restaurant had a luxury feel and the waiters were super attentive. A nice experience, average food, probably wouldn't go back but glad to have tried it finally.

Food had no taste

Cocktails not good at all

We shared sweet and sour chicken, seasonal green beans, an aubergine hot pot,
with very tasty vegetable fried rice. All the dishes were large portions and really outstanding.

Service was mediocre. I expected more hospitality which I have received in other restaurants in the area.

We sat next to a family who kept using foul language which brought the tone down a lot but I guess the restaurant can't be held responsible for that.

Beautiful room but we had a bad table next to main serving corridor and table behind us with noisy kids under 5 playing games on their phones. Service was patchy, we got our food almost before the drinks which we had to ask for. Food came very quickly and was ok. Sweet and sour pork delicious, crab noodles bland. Toffee fruit sublime. Didn’t feel somehow it was a special experience or we were valued as diners. Lots of large round tables with corporate diners. Not the place for a romantic dinner for two. No candles etc....

Expected a lot more from here. When you charge £7-£8 per item from the dim sum menu you expect it to be if exceptional standard. Overall the price we paid

Dear Guest , I am so sorry you felt we fell short of expectation and that you found our basket of dim sum, which are all freshly hand made daily in our kitchens, were not of exceptional standard. Please do contact us with your booking details so that we may investigate the matter properly.

Dear Pops, Thank you for your comments. Saturday evenings are invariably our busiest and can be very bustling, although this is no excuse for slow service and I apologise if that was your experience. Our sister restaurant in HK is indeed a much calmer setting and I am sorry that you felt we did not compare favourably. I do hope this will not deter you from visiting us on another occasion, perhaps during the week and that we may restore your faith in our standards of service.

The food was fantastic - even standard dishes like sweet and sour chicken were elevated and more exotic wagyu beef dishes were sublime. Service was good enough although not the kind of experience that makes you feel special. Not a particularly intimate experience as it was very noisy and we had to raise our voices in order to have a conversation which got tiresome after a while. A decent restaurant but the decor and interior would need to be updated to compare with places like Novikov and Hakkasan.

Its a nice place but they need to be more creative with their menu. Quite limited. The beef was outstanding quality, but for the price, everything should be outstanding. Not at all wowed by anything offered here, if anything it was quite average for the price. You pay for the name and the service. Otherwise I have had better chinese dishes elsewhere. They need to get with the times in my opinion. Decor dated and audience is older, but menu needs work.

China Tang
Responded on 8 May 2019

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback and delighted to hear you particularly enjoyed the beef dish when dining with us. We strive to stay true to the classic Cantonese cuisine rather than adopt a fusion style of menu, but I am sorry if this did not deliver to your expectation. Our décor is inspired by the glamorous and eclectic Shanghainese art deco style of the 1930's, and has had a complete soft refurbishment in January of this year. I am sorry we failed to wow you on this occasion.

Great place to be to eat dim sum and high quality chinese food.
The atmosphere is nice too and not too loud, allowing for the conversation to flow at your table without being disturbed by the neighbour.
Quite expensive compared to cheap eats you can find in china town but worth it since you get the quality.
