Chinese
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.

The overall quality of this restaurant is in keeping with being part of the Dorchester. However as we entered down to the dining and bar area it was very noisy, to the point you loudly. The aircon was hit and miss. The place was fully packed with some dinners more dressed for the gym then a place of this high standard. The service was on point and food delivered within normal time frame. But for me the food standard was not as high as I expected given its location. It was ok.

The food is OK, it is really noisy and packed. Tables are close to one another , so I could easily hear the conversation of other customers. The waiter is quite attentive, food is ok, not very traditional Cantonese food, more towards British style Chinese food, satay chicken and prawn ? A bit weird

The claypot dish taste nice, I like the aubergine. The chef recommendation is quite expensive but taste only OK , we had the curry squid and fishball, if tastes very British.

Dim Sum was good but mains was highly disappointing. Service was slow even though we visited during the afternoon and they were not very busy at all. Initially presented with metal chopsticks that were painful to use. Decor was not to my liking and staff uniform also not nice on the eyes.

Best Peking duck I’ve ever had! Food and service was excellent and time between courses was just right, we didn’t feel rushed at all and didn’t have to wait too long for each course. Overall a great experience and will definitely go back

The dimsum selection was rather ordinary. There are so many other variations and they offer only the common ones. Same with the tea. I asked for a tea list and they recommended JASMINE which is just a usual tea offered at probably every Chinese place. I expected a unique blend worthy of the spectacular surroundings. No one ever came to pour my tea from the pot and in fact no servers ever stopped by my table except to take my order and bring bill.
The setting is beautiful although you may have trouble finding it as you have to go behind a obscure door then down a flight of steps. I probably wouldn’t go again.

Ambiance - fantastic. Building, decor, staff attentiveness and as a place to go this was great.
Food - we went for the dim sum. Costs start at £6 for veg, £7 to 12 for nonveg. It is very very standard dim sum that you can get any where else in London for a lot less. There is none of the exceptional flavour or produce that you can get at places like royal China club or yauatcha. The dim sum prions seemed smaller than a lot of places also!
Go for the place, don't go for the food

Lovely dinner at China Tang - the atmosphere and service were great. The dim sum wasn’t quite as good as I remembered but this was made up for by the duck and the mains which were excellent. Our waiter was helpful and friendly and we enjoyed a leisurely meal over 3 hours.

This was my second outing to China Tang. Definitely much more lively on a Friday night! The food is solid, delicious and very memorable. We eat a lot of Chinese food, and China Tang is definitely a favorite when we come to London. Highly recommend the e-fu noodles with crab, the prawn dumplings and the scallop dumplings.

Poor service all round- waiter seemed fedup- didn’t ask for any drinks once mains came- didn’t topup water in any of the glasses during the meal until the end- didn’t put napkins on our laps before food was served- didn’t bring starters (usually we have mushrooms or something to start off before our food comes but had to ask for them to bring- didn’t get offered desserts just given bill- and then when mentioned this to the manager he didn’t once say sit down and let’s have dessert or let me see what I can do for you- just said ok thanks for feedback- not happy with it if I’m honest especially when you pay for a service and don’t receive it- I feel standards have fallen or it could’ve just been a bad day

I expected a lot more from this restaurant, the food was pretty average in comparison to the prices. Ribs to start had barely any meat on, they cane so quick it was almost as if they had been microwaved. This wa recommended by a friend and I Was definitely disappointed.

I was expecting a high class restaurant. I was disappointed. The place smelt like sewerage. It was so distracting. Thankfully when the food came, the smell of the food was able to compete with the sewerage.

It was practically empty, but we did go at 4:30.

The food is nothing that you can’t pick up from any Chinese on any high street in the UK. Just at 4 times the price.

Not dreadful, but not a standard I would expect from a restaurant associated with The Dorchester

Dear Mr Page, I am so sorry to hear you were underwhelmed by your recent visit, the last seating at 4:30pm on a Monday lunch is not a particular popular time. Without prior warning to us, the main drains on Park Lane were being cleaned that day, which filtered into our fresh air intake and air handling unit. Understandably this will have impacted your enjoyment and will contact you direct on your email to put this right. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. kindest regards Nathalie

Squid was too salty. Food didn’t come in an order that made sense - we had requested starters and dim sum come first but the food just rolled out in a random order. Service was slow and the attention of servers had to be specifically sought although there seemed to be many of them on ground. The servers were however pleasant.
