The Langham, Hong Kong
One of only four Cantonese restaurants in the world to receive a coveted three Michelin star rating, T’ang Court has built its outstanding reputation on a blend of flawless service, imperial ambience and of course its majestic and lavish selection of dim sum and Cantonese fine-dining dishes.
Located in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, on the first and second floors of The Langham, Hong Kong, T’ang Court is considered by guests and critics alike to be the ultimate Hong Kong Cantonese dining experience; high praise in a city famed for its masterful Chinese cuisine.
The restaurant’s name was inspired by the imperial Chinese Tang dynasty (618-907CE), a golden age of cosmopolitan culture and trade, and at T’ang Court the opulent imperialism of the era manifests itself in both the sophistication and authenticity of the menu and the sumptuous contemporary design.
The richly coloured interior features modern art accents while the deep-pile carpets and plush dark inlaid wood designs add a truly timeless dimension. The main dining area has banquet style white linen-draped tables and plush comfortable seating. There are also five exclusive private rooms. These secluded spaces are perfect for a romantic rendezvous, family or group gathering or even a business lunch or dinner.
The men behind the menus and the restaurant’s rise to Michelin stardom are Chinese Master Chef Kwong Wai Keung, ably supported by Chef Wong Chi Fai, Executive Chef – T’ang Court. Chef Kwong first joined The Langham, Hong Kong in 1988 and worked his way up to being the hotel’s executive chef in 1994 before taking on a global role in 2008.
With the Chinese New Year upon us, the team have once again come up with a range of spectacular festive menus and dishes based on the freshest and finest seasonal produce. Indulge in beautifully plated dishes like stir-fried sliced fresh lobster with mixed mushrooms and deep fried and shredded Hokkaido conpoy for a garnish of gold.
In keeping with the theme, for those who wish for a new year filled with good health and abundance there’s the braised bird’s nest with crab roe and Alaskan crab; a decadent crown of bird’s nest stewed in chicken broth and decorated with poached creamy crab roe. The bird’s nest is sourced from Indonesia, which produces some of the best nests anywhere in the world.
Aside from the scrumptious à la carte and special menus T’ang Court is also the home of some of the best and most innovative dim sum in the city. For the festive period guests can immerse themselves in the whole range of auspicious tastes and flavours at the dim sum lunch, the ideal time and place for your opulent family reunion or group gathering.
Complementing the standard dim sum, which features morsels like the gorgeous golden-fried minced Yunnan ham and egg fritters, for the Year of the Dog comes a range of black inspired choices created specially for the celebrations. Enjoy delights like steamed shrimp and bamboo charcoal dumpling topped with sliced lobster and black truffle. Bamboo charcoal is well known for absorbing toxins and when added to the dumpling skin it creates a beautiful black crust.
Whether it’ a family gathering or a romantic tête-à-tête, T’ang Court is an extravagant Cantonese dining experience and one made even better by the restaurant’s collection of premium wines and spirits, wonderful level of service and old-world charm.
