Square Meal Review of China Tang at The Dorchester Hotel ?

Conceived by lifestyle guru and entrepreneur Sir David Tang, this opulent subterranean dining room beneath the Dorchester evokes old colonial Shanghai and Hong Kong – a vision of sultry oriental glamour complete with dapper uniformed staff, chinoiserie, bespoke artworks… and ‘poetry in the toilets’. Prices will make your eyes water as surely as an overdose of Szechuan chilli, so it might be prudent to come at lunchtime and graze on some of the creditable dim sum (think honey-glazed spare ribs, steamed lobster dumplings and fried taro cakes). Otherwise the kitchen offers a variety of wallet-emptying specialities including Peking duck (served in three stages), steamed sea bass, chicken with cashews and other generic Chinese standards. Despite the odd errant waitress, service now ticks all the boxes for politeness, ‘pretty smiles’ and efficiency. Sexy cocktails hit the spot, while off-piste wines include a nifty Slovenian number by the glass.

    It was a pretty and quaint restaurant; the dining room felt like an upmarket version of my local Chinese. As we sank back into our sofa banquette, our mood matched the atmosphere; comfortable and relaxed...

    My Friends Recommend :: China Tang

    In the London hotel scene, one of the most famous institutions, The Dorchester, is normally associated with English tradition - afternoon tea, sparkly chandeliers and door men with red coats and top hats. Restaurant wise, these kind of hotels with such old-school grandeur have almost always got a celebrity chef at the helm serving the best of British (or wherever they are from).

    At the Dorchester though, while it does have all of the above, including the Alain Ducasse restaurant, which has an awe-inspiring 3 Michelin stars, our recommendation is for China Tang, a subterranean Chinese food lovers’ paradise, or more specifically, Cantonese...
