TANG, Nicky van der Walt’s multi-award-winning Asian luxury restaurant and bar, is set to launch in Dubai in December 2023. Located within the prestigious Address Palace Downtown Hotel, TANG Dubai offers guests a sensory dining experience inspired by contemporary Japanese izakayas and the classic Cantonese eateries of Hong Kong, while boasting glittering views of the iconic Burj Khalifa and magnificent Dubai Fountains.
Curated by renowned hospitality entrepreneur Nicky van der Walt, TANG Dubai is the first international export of the acclaimed South African hospitality portfolio that includes TANG Sandton, which debuted in Johannesburg, South Africa, in 2021, followed by TANG V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, South Africa, in 2022.
‘Dubai is the most logical evolution and next step in our brand story. Although we have been approached a few times by different landlords, it was important for the flagship of our international expansion to match the iconic locations of both our sister restaurants,’ said Nicky van der Walt, founder and owner of MIRAMAR Collection, which owns the restaurants and his own wine label.
Named after the Tang dynasty, TANG Dubai pays homage to the golden era of Chinese history, renowned for its cosmopolitan culture, prosperity, and classic timelessness.
Designed by award-winning interior architect Tristian Du Plessis, TANG Dubai is set over 10 000 square feet and seamlessly embodies a sleek, luxe, and minimalist aesthetic, enveloped with a tropical Asian ambience.
Following the same signature style as TANG Sandton and TANG V&A Waterfront in South Africa, Du Plessis will continue to draw on the brand’s elemental design and modern tropical movement with TANG Dubai.
