China Tang is proud to bring the original flavor of traditional Dim Sum to Mayfair, London.
The unique culinary art of Dim Sum originated with the Cantonese in southern China, who over the centuries transformed yum cha from a relaxing respite to a loud and happy dining experience. In Hong Kong and in most cities and towns in the Guangdong province, many restaurants start serving dim sum as early as 5am. It is tradition for the elderly to gather to eat Dim Sum after morning exercises and for many in southern China, yum cha is treated as a weekend family day. The more traditional Dim Sum restaurants typically serves Dim Sum until mid-afternoon, however, in modern society it has become common place for restaurants to serve Dim Sum at dinner time as well, London we have adopted to break from tradition at China Tang, serving Dim Sum in the heart of Mayfair from 11.30am through til Midnight.
Whilst Dim Sum (literal meaning: touch the heart) was originally not a main meal, only a snack, therefore only meant to touch the heart, it is now a staple of Cantonese dining culture, especially in Hong Kong and we hope soon in London.
Some of the China Tang favourites served include; Har Kau, Siu Mai, Taro cakes and a variety of Cheung Fun.
We therefore invite you to Mayfair to enjoy our truly authentic dishes.
