Sir David Tang was perhaps best known for creating the inimitable Shanghai Tang in Hong Kong, as well as for being a philanthropic (he was knighted in 2008 for his generous charity work in Hong Kong and Great Britain), politically outspoken and extremely genial man with a great sense of humour. He was also, of course, very well known for creating emblematic restaurants and private members‘ clubs that have endured throughout Hong Kong‘s ever-changing food scene.
