Decked out in their most glamourous festive season finery, Cape Town’s new “it” luxury Asian restaurant and bar, TANG V&A Waterfront has found its second home under the iconic view of Table Mountain.
The second in the Miramar Collection by entrepreneur extraordinaire and dedicated foodie, Nicky van der Walt brings an opulent sensory dining experience straight from Sandton’s Nelson Mandela Square to the Mother City.
Van der Walt’s concept restaurant continues the luxe-with-an-edge style of its Joburg counterpart, with the interior also designed by award-winning designer, Tristan Du Plessis, featuring brand staples such as an iconic marble waterfall, book-matched marble and a walk-in cellar.
In this case, though, TANG V&A Waterfront boasts a lighter colour palette to suit the venue’s ocean-side location.
Situated right on the Victoria Basin, TANG introduces unique cuisine inspired by contemporary Japanese izakayas (trendy restaurants/bars) and a classic Cantonese food to an eager new audience.
Escape the regular and experience the unprecedented with TANG’s classic dishes, including black cod, salmon teriyaki, chili salt and pepper calamari. Not to mention dim sum, a new take on traditional wok cooking and a selection of gyoza (pot sticker) dishes.
“Cape Town is one of the top tourist destinations in the world and it has a very special place in my heart,” says van der Walt. “We are delighted to be able to bring the TANG concept to the V&A, where discerning diners can enjoy our signature gastronomic experience against the backdrop of Table Mountain and the yacht harbour. There’s simply nothing to beat it”
TANG and TANG V&A Waterfront are named after the Tang dynasty, which ruled in China from the year 618 to the year 907. These two fine dining establishments pay homage to what historians generally regard as a high point in Chinese civilisation and a golden age of cosmopolitan culture.
