Chinese restaurant opens in Dundee and reveals stunning interior design

The owner of a luxurious city restaurant is taking things in a casual direction.

Dynasty has reopened as Tang’s Dynasty, with a sole focus on traditional Chinese cuisine with a modern twist.

For a quick bite to eat a lingering lunch or delicious afternoon high tea or evening sipping some fabulous drinks and cocktails with or without dinner, Tang’s is the latest addition to Dundee’s vibrant restaurant and bar scene.

For owner and head chef Usman Malik, the change has come after customer feedback.

Destined to attract a discerning crowd, Tang’s offers a majestic yet magnetic ambience for any occasion. Conveniently located in the bustling social district, opposite University of Dundee, in the heart of city.

Whether you are coming to dine, drink or party at Tang’s – you won’t be disappointed.

“We are so overwhelmed with the soft opening on September 6, we have had huge turn out where diners were delighted with the food, could not believe the amount of people turned out for sit and takeaways both!

“We offered Chinese dishes as one of the four ‘dynasties’ on our previous menu and those were very popular with customers,” he explained. “So when we decided to make changes, it was an obvious choice to make.”

Usman has worked with a highly experienced Chinese chef to create the menu for Tang’s Dynasty, which includes familiar favourites.

“I wanted something unique for Dundee, so Tang’s Chinese Table became a creative culvert for me that confines everything I love about Dundee!

“Food, art and design are all the features that I am passionate about are conscientiously chosen for this unique restaurant.”

Dundee restaurant to serve only Chinese food two years after opening with brain curry on menu

But Dynasty in Nethergate, which opened two years ago with a menu offering delights such as brain curry and camel meatballs, is to transform into a Chinese restaurant.

Owner Usman Malik said diners had responded so positively to the introduction of Chinese dishes on the Dynasty menu that he is now going to concentrate on “authentic” Chinese cuisine.

Although Dynasty will still serve high teas, in the evenings the restaurant, which will be renamed Tang’s Chinese Table, will only serve Chinese food.

Mr Malik said: “A few months ago we started putting Chinese dishes on our a la carte menu and the feedback from customers was really positive.

“It’s going to be very authentic, not like a British Chinese restaurant.

“We are flying over chefs from Hong Kong and are just finalising the menu and website.”

Dynasty is known for its over-the-top decor, which includes props from Game of Thrones, and Mr Malik said this will not be changing.

“We will be keeping the decor but we are trying to make the restaurant more of a casual dining experience so it is for everybody in Dundee.”

Mr Malik said he hopes to open Tang’s Chinese Table within the next couple of weeks.

A Difficult to choose just one. Delia Smith – I loved her great classical recipes which were well explained and simply loved watching her when I was younger; I also like Nigella Lawson as she is fun to watch with contemporary dishes and fusions.

Q Favourite cookbook?

A None – I don’t believe in following recipes from cook books as I enjoy experimenting with different flavours and ingredients by using my own experience. Name a dish, and I will make it for you…
