Let Crown’s traditional Chinese restaurant Man Tong Kitchen take you on a culinary journey through its mother country. Serving succulent plates of Peking duck, plump and juicy dumplings, traditional hot pots and more, Man Tong Kitchen offers authentic Chinese cuisine in an impressive formal setting.
Translating to ‘full house’ in English, the concept behind Man Tong Kitchen is to celebrate the Chinese tradition of gathering a house full of family and friends to share a meal. By pairing the wonderful and diverse flavours of Chinese cuisine with the skill of expert chefs and attentive staff, Man Tong Kitchen covers all aspects of the dining experience.
Start your meal at Man Tong Kitchen with a plate of the signature xiao long bao – soupy dumpling encased in a steamed bun. The Peking duck, crispy pigeon and Chinese sausage are also excellent, traditional starters.
Ask the friendly staff for advice on the main meals and they will likely direct you to one of Man Tong Kitchen’s signature dishes – think plates of minced pork meatballs served with sticky rice, Taiwanese san pei chicken and deep fried prawns with thousand island sauce.
The menu also plays host to an attractive selection of desserts including pan-fried, mashed red bean pancake with ice cream, green tea tiramisu, mango pudding and everyone’s favourite, deep fried ice cream.
If you simply cannot decide which delicious dishes you want to sample, opt for one of the sumptuous banquets on offer.
All of the delicious food options (including banquets) at Man Tong Kitchen can be expertly paired with a drop of wine from the impressive list. The 15-page list, spanning more than 300 wines, offers something for every taste from the $10,000 bottle of Chateau Lafite-Rothschild to a glass of local Penfolds.
Pull up a seat at the spacious 200-seater venue and enjoy the best Chinese flavours, paired with excellent service and premium wines. For those occasions that require something a little quieter, book a table in the private dining room.
