China Tang at The Dorchester

53 Park Lane, LONDON, W1K 1QA

2 rosettes

There are basements and basements. Needless to say, the basement of The Dorchester is not a bad place to be, in fact, it looks incredible, and its home to China Tang. The bar is opulent and old school, the restaurant itself a celebration of refined Chinoiserie with contemporary fish-themed Asian art and art-deco mirrored columns. There's a reassuring confidence and professionalism to the service team. The menu won't be unfamiliar to anyone used to eating Cantonese food in the UK, but there are more than enough luxury items to act as a reminder that this is the Dorchester. Soft-shelled crab fried with egg yolk shows this to be a kitchen that doesn't waste time with unnecessary embellishments, likewise the salt-and-pepper squid. There is classic lobster braised in bouillon, plus whole suckling pig if you give 24-hour's notice, but equally there's the humble lamb brisket cooked in a clay pot. Desserts such as warm chocolate pudding with vanilla ice cream can have a Western flavour, and dim sum is served all day.
