Established only in 2020, the World Culinary Awards operates on a self-nomination process where entry is free of charge. The final winners are selected by a panel of industry experts, discerning consumers, and prominent figures in the culinary community. Read more about the process here.

At the heart of this culinary success story is Group Executive Chef Vixa Kalenga and his award-winning culinary team who continuously serve sensory-driven signature dishes with a luxurious twist on contemporary Japanese izakayas and classic Cantonese cuisine. Highlights from the menu include Peking duck, black cod miso, yellowtail sashimi, and a selection of gourmet sushi and wok dishes.

TANG V&A Waterfront is nestled in a prime location with mesmerising views of the bustling harbour and the iconic Table Mountain as a backdrop. The restaurant’s interiors, masterfully designed by the award-winning Tristan du Plessis, effortlessly complement the lively ambience of the Waterfront while exuding an air of sophistication. Oak panelling in neutral tones, glass accents, and an ivory statement marble waterfall at the entrance add an extra touch of glamour.
