Michelin-rated Tàn Chá elevates Chinese cuisine to an art form with a sensorial menu of 18 exquisite tastes, served in a private dining space.
Tàn Chá’s Chef David Pang continues to push the boundaries of Chinese cuisine in Dubai and beyond, with the launch of its ultra-exclusive private dining experience Table 8 by Tàn Chá. Set within a chinois private dining space, this sensorial experience is inspired by the ancient Japanese art of ‘omakase’, where the menu is left entirely in the hands of the chef and the whim of the seasons.
At Table 8 by Tàn Chá, acclaimed chef David Pang translates the Japanese omakase custom through a contemporary Chinese lens, crafting a scintillating 11-course menu spanning 18 distinctive tastes – the first of its kind in Dubai. Check your preconceptions of Chinese cuisine at the door, for once you step into the richly decorated private dining room, you will be taken on a culinary journey that transports you from the bustling seafood markets of Hong Kong to the piquant delights of Sichuan province, Beijing’s richly rewarding Peking duck, and beyond. Chef Pang is a master at intricately layering flavours and textures to create contemporary Chinese dishes that are truly one of a kind.
