The Interior of T’ang Court is particularly dark and gloomy to a certain extent and separated into 2 different sections with an upper and lower dining spaces. When compared to the regular dining structure in the lower level the upper level seems to be of more interesting with many beautiful decors adorning the dining space to make it look more modern. The large Tang Horse catches your eyes when you enter the upper level along with beautiful modern paintings on the walls.
