The Overview

This longstanding Cantonese restaurant, whose name alludes to China's so-called golden age of the Tang dynasty, predates the present-day Langham by two decades. The two-story dining room has been updated with modern touches such as contemporary Chinese paintings, though its defining elements have been preserved: the grand spiral staircase retains its original wooden balustrade. Wine-colored satin draperies lend an air of opulence and drama to the numerous private dining areas.

Executive chef Siu Hin Chi's menu is almost overwhelming in its exhaustiveness. But not to fret: it's hard to go wrong when ordering at this two-Michelin-star restaurant. Even a dish as simple as pan-fried cheung fan with homemade XO sauce becomes a feat of culinary excellence, with delightfully crisp-on-the-outside, chewy-on-the-inside rice-flour rolls zinging with multi-layered flavor. Try top-notch dim sum classics such as har gao (shrimp dumplings) and charsiu bao (roast-pork buns), or more unorthodox offerings such as mango-and-shrimp spring rolls or abalone canapés. For dessert, don't miss the delicate almond soup with egg white and the dainty bird's nest tartlets.
