Continuing the interior design and elevated menu traditions of the late Sir David Tang, China Tang has debuted at the MGM Grand, the first U.S. expansion for the Hong Kong-based Lai Sun Dining company.

Featuring an open bar and lounge area facing Emeril’s New Orleans Fish House, the China Tang dining rooms are hidden behind the bar and have been decorated with traditional and contemporary Chinese art favored by Sir David at his Hong Kong, Beijing, Singapore, and London restaurants.

The expansive menu has been overseen by the Lai Sun group’s executive chef Albert Au Kwok Keung, the world’s youngest Chinese chef to helm a three Michelin starred restaurant at the Cantonese-focused The Eight inside Macau’s Grand Lisboa Hotel. In Las Vegas, Executive chef Larry Ng Wai Kwok has been imported from the Hong Kong Jockey Club.

With a focused attention on preparation, authentic ingredients, and a high standard of service, the fine dining arrives with an expected top-shelf price point. China Tang has also remained true to its core customer base, displaying the menu in both US and Hong Kong dollars.

Serving Cantonese, Sichuan, Shanghai, and Beijing favorites, a handful of “signature dishes” require advance ordering and patience, including the Beijing roasted duck carved table-side and the “China Tang Signature Baked ‘Hammer Chicken,’” cracked open before serving.
