A noodle joint with customisable dishes and family-style tables.
Tucked in between the Central YMCA and 24-hour diner VQ, Tang is a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it Singaporean noodle joint specialising in dairy-free broth. You can choose between rice, glass or wheat noodles: a nice touch. Chinese newspapers plaster the walls and chef Chen Ng serves straight to communal wooden tables once diners have ordered at the counter.
The rich, spicy broth in a bowl of ‘prawn tang’ came with a generous dollop of caramelised onions and fat king prawns, though another bowl of gingery ‘chicken tang’ sadly lacked depth. Portions are huge but expensive (around £11 a pop), so it’s best to forgo the pimp-my-soup protein extras (pulled pork ribs, six-minute-egg). If you’re really starving, there are generous starters such as crisp battered black bean tofu, which comes piping hot with a tangy, homemade white miso dip; it’s a moreish combo. On my Wednesday lunchtime visit, the place was deserted, but staff were sweet-natured and more accommodating than that YMCA next door.
We're a Southeast Asian-inspired noodle bar that specialises in dishes that taste wonderfully different from the last. Our chef refers to the food she has created as proper 'soul-food' that will warm you inside and out, while having you wanting to come back to try another dish.
Our menu offers a wide range of gluten-free, vegan and halal items so if you have a large group we know we can accommodate all your needs.
Reservations are not required but you can call/email us to reserve. Four or more people in a reservation gets you a complimentary bottle of wine. From noon-3pm we offer a £10 lunch where you get any noodle dish and drink from our menu.
So come in for great atmosphere and unique flavours!

Tang really is one to discover. The food is delicious, warm, comforting and (for me) most important: gluten free! Even the chicken starter is in a gluten free batter and just to die for. And before I forget: I even love the tofu (normally not one of my favourite things to eat). The atmosphere is cool and cosy at the same time and the staff extremely welcoming. Chef Chen Ng is a great and interesting person and will help you to choose the perfect dish for you.
