I happened to pass by a new Chinese restaurant at Venice Grand Canal Mall – DaTang Venice. I never knew that it was not just simply another Chinese food place but rather a modern take on it.
The name of the restaurant came from two syllables – “Da” which means Great, while “Tang” is for the Tang Dynasty. DaTang Venice was inspired by the dynasty’s golden age. A painting signifying the Tang Dynasty was also prominent in one of the walls of the restaurant. It was well ventilated and very well lighted.
The Tennis Foodie team tried the following dishes during our visit:
We started off with appetizers and soup. We tried the Chinese Yam & Ribs Soup. It includes red dates and wolfberry.
The Seafood Salad was one of my favorites during my visit. It is a combination of squid, mussel, octopus, tomatoes and five flavors sauce.
In the vegetables section of the menu, we tried the Sauteed Chayote with Cordia Seeds. It was really good. I never liked plain greens but this one makes the cut!
Apart from these, we also tried the DaTang Deep Fried Chicken Wings and Dongpo Pork. The sweet garlic sauce in the chicken wings complement the perfect crispy texture. It was mouthwatering indeed! The Dongpo Pork was enclosed in a deep fried bao.
It won’t be complete without a dessert. Candied Sweet Taro was served hot with sugar crystals on it. It was really a nice treat after a full meal.
Apart from these good food finds, they also serve cocktails and drinks. We have tried three signature DaTang cocktails:
Prosperously of Tang Dynasty was made of vodka, kahlua, baileys, frangelico liqueur, milk, black tea, coffee and maple sugar. My Fair Princess was so refreshing! It’s composed of rum, strawberry, lemon juice, mint leaves and smoked salt.
My friends and I will definitely come back to this restaurant. Great lighting, well cooked meals and friendly staff. Special thanks to Jazmine Laboriante for making our gastronomic experience possible.

Sounds like a lovely place to go to for some Chinese fusion cuisine. I do love the ambiance and the interior of the place. The food looks amazing!
I love that you are sharing different cuisines available in your country. For this time, I think what I like is the seafood salad.
Ooh! I wish they had one of these in the US. That Sauteed Chayote with Cordia Seeds looks amazing – and I may have to try to duplicate that My Fair Princess drink.
This place sounds amazing. Although I am not a fan of Chinese food, the Candied Sweet Taro sound and looks like something I’d like.
The food looks absolutely amazing! So so visually pleasing and tasty! This post is making me so hungry!
Always love seeing your food adventures! That seafood salad looks delectable! Lovely ambience.
I’ve not heard of Chinese Fusion before and I’ve not tested it, but it’s really appealing from here
Yay, I have a reason now to visit Venice Piazza again, it’s been awhile and I’ve been missing a lot. Which one is your favorite dish?
This restaurant looks so yummy. I would love to try these dishes. Thanks for sharing.
I like everything mentioned in this post.Seems you all had great time with tasting Chinese food.I like to try Sauteed Chayote with Cordia Seeds
I used to always pass by this resto when we still went to the office. Glad to hear that food is good — will consider dining in with officemates when things are back to normal!
I madly love seafood salad. Really good to know about the restaurant.
I love the restaurant’s ambiance. It looks so cozy! The yam and ribs soup looks delicious. I had something similar but it was ribs and lotus root instead of yam.
Oh wow. That is some of the most creative food I’ve seen in a while. I would love to eat there one day.
That food looks absolutely amazing! I’m a huge, HUGE fan of creative cuisine. It really takes things to another level.
This meal makes me think that I need to broaden my exposure to Chinese food. Obviously, there is a lot that I am missing! I am very interested in those cocktails. I don’t drink alcohol anymore but both of these drinks seem very tasty and might convert well to mocktails.
Wow the restaurant and the food looks amazing. I like the painting as well. Looks stunning
I love Venice and the restaurant looks superb. I loved the food detailing and the view is awesome!
I just had Chinese food yesterday- pepper steak with fried rice was my main dish. Chinese food is our most commonly ordered takeout food.
I do miss eating out. I usually order takeout from another Chinese restaurant but it would be a welcome treat to try it here.
This looks like an interesting experience. The dessert is especially fascinating to me. That is likely because I have never tasted anything like it.
