"Pricey but good value" is probably the first thing to say about China Tang. Given its location in the bowels of The Dorchester, the former is expected, while the latter reflects the fact that the quality is high. This is old-school cuisine delivered in a gilded room suggestive of louche 1930s Shanghai – carved screens, lacquered woodwork and original artworks, with slick service from waiters in dishy white uniforms. The kitchen's output doesn't hold a lot of surprises, but it's heartening to see the declaration 'no MSG' stamped on every page of the menu. Peking duck comes in two or three courses, while the 'classic' prefix is used to denote signature dishes including red-cooked lamb in a clay pot, wok-fried prawns or lobster tail braised in bouillon. Dim sum is served all day, so steamed dumplings, crispy BBQ pork pastries and taro cakes await whenever you fancy them.
