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

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.

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.

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
