T’ang Court Restaurant Review, Hong Kong
Posted by Foodnut.com
8 Peking Road - Langham Hotel First Floor
Kowloon, Hong Kong, China SAR
T’ang Court is a 2 Michelin star restaurant in the ritzy Langham Hotel in Hong Kong’s touristy Tsim Sha Tsui district. They focus on modern Chinese cuisine with a focus on elegant T’ang Dynasty decor. We had eaten lunch at Legendary Michelin three-star Lung King Heen, so our appetites were inhibited.
Why did we here? – They were next on our Michelin guide Chinese restaurant list! A good a reason as any..
Summary – T’ang Court
Insider Tip – Order The Pig of time.
Cuisine – Modern Chinese Cantonese
Chef – Siu Hin Chi
Location – Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong
Decor, Vibe – T’ang Court is covered with red and gold silk and adorned with contemporary sculptures with several private dining areas. We sat in one, which proved to be a very nice place to enjoy all excellent food.
T’ang Court’s Menu features a wide variety of classic Cantonese dishes along with some modern twists.
Signature Dishes – Fresh shrimp balls, baked lobster with onions

Half Crispy Salty Chicken (HK$180) was excellent. Crispy skin, perfectly moist chicken, and chicken flavor that just doesn’t exist in the United States. The skin texture was simply out of this world.
Roasted Suckling Pig ($660) was the highlight of the evening. We have never ordered one before, so we were really looking forward to this. The focus is on the super crispy skin (tiny bones still embedded) and not really the entire pig. This dish proved to be one of the best suckling pigs that we have ever had. The others in the party agreed. We had them sliced up the head, although most people take it home to cook congee. We have heard good things about the whole pig that Kimberly’s serves also. These pigs are small, weighing about 5 pounds, so plan on 4 to 5 adults for your meal.
Sautéed Sliced Conch and prawns with Asparagus ($350) was fresh and crisp. No yucky starch sauce, very pure high-quality ingredients.
Kale with Ginger Sauce ($130) was also excellent. We just don’t have simple vegetable dishes this good stateside.
Wonton noodles ($180) to satisfy the little ones have huge mushrooms and huge wontons.
Free dessert of coconut milk red bean Jell-O possess a very light flavor profile but proved to quench our sweet tooth.
OK: (Order if you like this dish)
Sautéed Prawns and crab Roe with golden fried pork and crab meat puffs ($340) was a signature dish that was highly recommended. It proved to be okay, but not spectacular. The deep fried version was a bit greasy, while the sautéed version was solid.
Pans: (We would not reorder these dishes)
Service – T’ang Court had top notch service including menu guidance, refills, plate changes. Service faded as the place got busy.
Value – Prices are in line with fine dining restaurants in Hong Kong. If you want to save money, eat elsewhere.
Verdict – T’ang Court serves up high quality Chinese food in a beautiful location. This restaurant is definitely in the same league as Ming Court. Even though we ordered a small sample of their food, we feel confident of their competency.
