The famous restaurant will bring 1930s Shanghai to DIFC next year…

If you’ve spent any time in the posh part of the British capital, you’ll know China Tang. The upscale Cantonese restaurant is inspired by the art-deco era of 1930s Shanghai and is found in London’s five-star Dorchester hotel.

And soon, Dubai residents will be able to get a taste of their award-winning dishes as the restaurant is set to open in Dubai next year.

Projected to open in mid 2019, the high-end Chinese restaurant can be found in Gate Village 11, the new block currently under construction.

In London, China Tang is famous for its classical Chinese and Cantonese dishes, as well as its signature Peking Duck, so we can’t wait to check out the menu at their Dubai outpost next year.

It is also iconic in terms of its interiors, and the private dining rooms have hosted dinners for everyone from model Kate Moss to British Royal Princess Eugenie.

First opened in London in 2005, the China Tang brand has since expanded to open branches in Hong Kong and Las Vegas.

The restaurant is being brought to the region by Bulldozer Group, who operate some of our favourite high-end restaurants in the city including Scalini, Crab Market, Cipriani and the recently opened Gaia, so we’re confident that China Tang Dubai will be an instant hit.
