Tang Restaurant has been established in Preston since 2008, serving the most authentic “real” Chinese Dim Sum, Cantonese and Sichuan cuisine to the local and discerning Chinese student communities of Preston and Lancaster. Tang Restaurant has earned an enviable reputation for offering the most delectable Chinese food, the highest standards of service, and fabulous karaoke function rooms to dine in and party until late.
The literal translation of “Dim Sum” is “touch from the heart”. These are small portions of different delicacies made intricately for their distinct variety of flavours and textures. Many recipes have been passed down thousands of years but today’s modern chefs have adapted recipes to make new and exciting versions with the inclusion of new ingredients, and/or new representations. All our Dim Sum is made in-house by our highly skilled Dim Sum chefs, providing Tang with fresh handmade Dim Sum varieties.
Cantonese cuisine, as the name states, comes from the Chinese province of Canton, now more commonly known as Guangdong. This province is in the south of China where the weather and climate is warm, and ingredients can be grown and farmed easily and abundantly, producing the widest varieties of dishes with different flavours, colours, textures, fragrances and sauces. Together with different cooking methods such as steaming, stir frying, shallow frying, deep frying, double steaming and braising, Cantonese cuisine encompasses a wealth of complexity and is one of the most loved cuisines around the world. Tang Restaurant offers our guests only the highest quality Cantonese cuisine from our extensive menus.
Sichuan Cuisine is the most widely served cuisine in China, with it’s hometowns being Chengdu and Chongqing in the province of Sichuan. Dishes of Sichuan Cuisine are famous for their hot and spicy flavour. An outstanding facet of Sichuan dishes is the delicate use of pepper or chilli. The ingredients used are great in variety, including poultry, pork, beef, fish, vegetables and tofu. The methods of cooking vary according to the texture required. Fast-frying is the most widely used cooking method. Sichuan Cuisine wins universal praise for its hotness, sourness and numbness it produces, which is rare in other regional cuisines. Its cooking methods include baking, sautéing, dry-sautéing and steaming. Tang being the leading authentic Chinese restaurant in the area, specialises in Sichuan cuisine by master chefs who have trained and worked in Chengdu and Chongqing, and have a major following of Chinese diners coming to Tang for that unique taste and flavour.
