TANG restaurant expands its offer with a branch in Cape Town this spring

TANG, the upscale Asian restaurant and bar that has taken Joburg by storm, is heading to the V&A Waterfront later this year. This new location mimics the iconic location of its Sandton address, overlooking Nelson Mandela Square.

Nicky van der Walt, the conservator behind TANG (part of her MIRAMAR collection), says: “Cape Town is very close to my heart. It is truly an international city and well known as a great foodie destination. The V&A Waterfront is the jewel of the city, attracting millions of local and international tourists, so it was a no-brainer that the second TANG would open there. You simply can’t beat the magnificent view of Table Mountain and the Marina from TANG V&A Waterfront!”

Along with the unrivaled views, diners can also expect TANG’s signature on contemporary Japanese izakayas and classic Cantonese cuisines for which the Joburg-based restaurant has become so famous.

Group Executive Chef Vixa Kalenga, who created the original TANG menu, will oversee the restaurants in Johannesburg and Cape Town, along with Executive Chef Tanki Ernest Tsosane who will lead operations in Cape Town. Tanki had been with Nobu for nine years, having worked in Cape Town, Saudi Arabia and Tokyo.

Food prepared and served at TANG

While the V&A Waterfront is a drawing board, diners familiar with the original TANG will be aware of the restaurant’s luxurious yet cutting-edge design. Award-winning designer Tristan Du Plessis is responsible for the interiors of the new TANG and you can be sure he will add an extra element of glamor to Cape Town.

Alex Kabalin, head of retail at the V&A Waterfront, said the arrival of TANG was part of the district’s “reorganization of our restaurant range”.

“TANG are a good example of the new type of restaurants we are attracting, and they will bring a new and unique flavor to the contemporary and sophisticated selection of sensory dining experiences we have at The Waterfront in a setting that we are sure our visitors will enjoy. he says.
