TANG Sandton: Pan-Asian Restaurant in Johannesburg


The menu at TANG Sandton takes diners on a culinary journey across Asia while bringing the very best of design, dining and service into a menu of refined Pan-Asian dining.

The selection of small plates – ‘Izakayas’ – is the perfect introduction to the menu, dishing up everything from soft-shell crab in black pepper soya to Wagyu robatayaki. Each plate is built on delivering elegant complexity, from the linear flavours and primacy of produce in the tuna tataki with onion ponzu and citrus soya to the perfectly crisp batter of tempura rock shrimp with chilli-infused dipping sauce. 

At TANG Sandton, each dish is an elevated interplay of flavour and texture, spice and fragrance, with paired dipping sauces adding ever more layers of complexity.

Executive Chef Vixa Kalenga’s depth of kitchen creativity extends to an inspiring choice of wok dishes, prime cuts from the robata grill and a menu of classic and modern sushi plates. Signature large plates run from Salmon Teriyaki with wasabi mash to the iconic Black Cod Miso, while the Peking Duck, available as half or whole, is a theatrical masterpiece perfect for larger tables. 

‘From the beginning TANG was created as a pan-Asian restaurant. We’re not fusion,’ says Kalenga. ‘Each dish stays true to the country of origin, and in the kitchen, we work incredibly hard to honour and respect those time-honoured culinary traditions.’

The summer menu at TANG honours this concept with a sea of flavours. There’s the newly added signature dish, the Imperial Seafood Platter, where succulent lobster is the highlight with sweet, tender meat. 

The rest of the platter includes perfectly cooked langoustines, prawns as well and soft-shell crab. For fish, the signature selection includes coconut seabass and baby kingklip in umami goodness, tamarind and chilli.

Completing the platter is a Salt and Pepper Calamari served with jalapeño sauce and toasted homemade hoisin. New Izakaya dishes worth a try are a fine take on Thai-style Tom Yum soup and Chicken Karaage which is Japanese fried fish plated beautifully. READ MORE
