Jing Yaa Tang first opened its doors in 2013 and immediately became a favorite in the city for its Peking Duck and authentic regional takes on Chinese cuisine. Set within a striking contemporary Chinoiserie theatrical style design, the restaurant has a total of 155 seats and is open for lunch and dinner. Its interior also opens into a central social dining space or “Tang”, which is taken from the literal Chinese translation of hall.

“I am truly honoured to receive this award which is a milestone in my 20-year culinary career,” says Executive Chinese chef Li Dong “This is a wonderful recognition of our entire team’s hard work and we will strive to ensure that Jing Yaa Tang continues to provide an exceptional dining experience for our guests.”

The Opposite House has also welcomed its new bar – UNION in July this year and will soon be opening two new restaurants, Frasca and Superfly in December 2019. With the launch of the new restaurant and bar concepts, The Opposite House aims to be a must-visit dining destination.
