Reflecting China’s Golden Age, the Tang Dynasty 

The Tang Dynasty was founded by the House of Li family, the descendant of Lao Tzu who created Tao Te Ching scriptures. The Golden Age of Chinese arts, literature, and culture, and also the peak of Buddhism, brought forward the practice of Taoism as most people started to comprehend the idea of karmic law.

T’ang Court emerges with lavish furnishings, offering an original and aesthetic scenery like no other. Heavily inspired by the Golden Age of Chinese arts, literature, and culture, diners will find themselves drowned in the richness of culture galore. It is thoughtfully presented in visual exhibitions of history and philosophy in multiple masterpiece installations such as paintings, calligraphies, and vases throughout the restaurant.

The entire interior is profoundly influenced by adornments from Tang Dynasty with a touch of Sancai influence on horse pottery and mural, three-coloured ceramic, and the extra blue pigment from cobalt. Most pots in the main hall are Bao Xiang Hua, also known as a mythological flower that serves as the most propitious motif.

With 160 seating capacity open for lunch and dinner, T’ang Court also has six well-appointed private dining rooms to accommodate family gatherings, business engagements, and even a romantic date. All private rooms are specifically following the concept of flowing and meaningful depictions of Chinese florals, each containing a deep and beautiful portrayal of wisdom and prudence in life. The artworks in the private dining room represent the best parts of the most auspicious flowers:

  • Private Dining Room 1: Peony, to represent prosperity and spring, accommodating 24 people
  • Private Dining Room 2: Lotus, to represent harmony and summer, accommodating 10 people
  • Private Dining Room 3: Chrysanthemum, to represent peace and autumn, accommodating eight people
  • Private Dining Room 4: Plum Blossom, to represent longevity and winter, accommodating 10 people
  • Private Dining Room 5: Chinese Lily, to symbolise a blissful life, accommodating eight people
  • Private Dining Room 6: Daffodil, to symbolise fortune, accommodating eight people

The private dining room corridor is called “The All Seasons of Peace and Fortune” hallway (Si Ji Ping An Menting). The plates are specially designed to celebrate the work of Li Bai, one of the famous poets from Tang.
