China Tang at The Dorchester - authentic Cantonese restaurant

Created 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 of China. Menus do not compromise on classical recipes and all dishes, including its signature Peking Duck are prepared with only the freshest ingredients and traditional spices and flavouring.

The sumptuous interior has been 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, personally chosen by Sir David Tang.

In addition to the restaurant, China Tang features an exquisite bar that offers a variety of classic cocktails that can be ordered to accompany the Dim Sum menu which is served all day. For special occasions, the restaurant also offers diners three private dining rooms – Ping, Pang and Pong.

The China Tang bar is as gloriously glamorous as you’d expect from an outlet at The Dorchester, that most venerable of central London hotels. The brainchild of renowned businessman Sir David Tang, the founder of the China Club in Hong Kong, it’s a deeply attractive space, with an art deco lounge bar reminiscent of 1930s Shanghai .

The cocktail list features all the classics including an impeccable Singapore Sling. The delicate Jasmine Martini mixes Grey Goose vodka, lychee, Galliano L’Autentico and jasmine flower water while the Oriental Cosmo orange infused Kettle One vodka, Yuzu Shochu, Cointreau and Martini Bianco. The bar stocks a superb range of single malts whiskies, gins, vodkas, rums and has an impressive wine list.

The bar serves food all day from our Dim Sum and A La Carte menus; steamed lobster dumplings, honeyed spare ribs, and exquisite broth-filled Shanghai dumplings – are all beautifully presented. Sink back into one of the plush armchairs with a cocktail and find yourself transported to another world and not to forget the regular Tuesday night live jazz evening’s with the fantastic duo “Kitty La Roar”.
