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

Team Christmas dinner. Lovely meal - every bit of the food was brilliantly done. But of a busy place, but they dealt with it well. The Peking Duck was perfect.

They forgot to give my son his surprise birthday cake (it was his 18th).
Best they could do is refund the cost of the cake.

Really enjoyed the food at China Tang! Perfect for a birthday outing. It was my boyfriend’s birthday, the noise level was quite high which I wasn’t expecting so we couldn’t hold a conversation without repeating ourselves numerous times. Otherwise amazing restaurant beautiful decor

The food was excellent, especially since they had a Halal Menu which made it easy for us. The noise level was off the charts and our waitress had zero personality and did not enhance the experience. I've been there twice now, both time in the first week of December and it was a the same noise level. Service was better last time.

All lovely, great quality and very good service. We were relatively early so still able to have a conversation as well which is it easy later at night when it gets quite busy. Not cheap but superb food.

Amazing service and stunning restaurant. Food was very standard and presentations was also simple and some food bland.
Dessert platter was good. Very expensive for the quality of food. You pay more for the quality of service and restaurant ambience

Wonderful food , very good service. Although felt the barman ignored us (table of two - daughter and father) for a larger loader group.

We will be back

One side not - too many people making loud phone calls

Extremely poor service, ordered a drink and, never turned up. Food just thrown down on the table, no one checked how we were during the meal. Water was no replenished, will never go back. And would no recommend to anyone. To top it off it was for a birthday dinner, so disappointed!

I was appalled by the service at a restaurant like China Tang. No one paid any attention to us to take our order. Had to call different waiters 3 times for someone to take our order. Also the same when we asked for the bill. The waiter didn’t have much knowledge on the menu and didn’t offer any recommendations to the questions we asked.

I visited China Tang for my gf birthday and loved it. The food was delicious, we ordered Schezuan Prawns, Black pepper Beef, Sweet and Sour Chicken and egg fried rice. Everything was delicious, and impeccable service. The restaurant made an effort to present dessert we ordered with a candle and happy birthday message which was really sweet and thoughtful. Highly recommend but it is on the pricey side. £150 for 2ppl (without alcohol)

A total disappointment. I have been going there for 10 yrs but never again. Signature dish - Crispy Duck was not available. We order HALF roasted duck but only 6 small pieces arrived with the pancakes. The lobster noodles was soggy , oversized and without palate ! This place needs a revamp

After being sat at our table we waited 30 minutes until we saw a menu
this was only after walking back to reception and asking for someone to look after us

the manager did come over and apologise but the damage had already been done.
food came out quickly due to our long wait but at 10.40 it was a bit late to enjoy

Dear Mr Harding, I am pleased you enjoyed the food and ambience on your recent visit but disappointed that you were let down by the service. After being seated at 9pm for your 9:30pm reservation, the waiter should have anticipated your desire to order promptly. I am truly sorry that did not happen, but glad that your meal was served by 9:30 along with 2 complimentary glasses of champagne. I do hope this won't deter you from dining with us in the future and that we may redeem your faith in us.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your kind comments about our interiors. Most concerned however that you did not enjoy the traditional Cantonese cuisine and found it lacking in flavour, as most feedback from our guests is quite the contrary. Please do contact me direct, Nathalie.ford@chinatanglondon.co.uk with the details of your booking so that I may investigate what may have occurred on the occasion that you dined with us. Thank you in advance for your time. Kindest regards Nathalie

The food had a great taste, presentation was moderate to low, table visits were frequent during our meal, with waiters topping up the glasses etc, and enquiring about the food quality, but when we were handed the desert menu, no one attended to take out order, after 15 minute wait, we reluctantly 'grabbed' the attention of a passing waiter, the desert delivered it was ideal. overall the experience is relaxed.

Beautiful surroundings, friendly service and high quality Chinese food make China Tang a treat. Dishes were well prepared, seasoned and using high quality ingredients- we enjoyed a dim sum lunch which had a good choice of vegetarian options also. Staff were friendly, attentive and made good suggestions about the food. Recommended for a high quality Chinese meal in Central London.
