40 years of
Pioneered the first Chinese cuisine in UAE
CPG's story began in 1980 with the inauguration of the first Chinese restaurant in Dubai, Chinese Palace Restaurant. Founded as a family business, CPG transitioned to the leadership of Simon Han in 2010, who subsequently led the group through a remarkable expansion.
From a single Chinese restaurant, CPG has diversified its portfolio to encompass seven distinctive brands and close to 50 stores. Among these brands, four quick-service concepts, including Chinese Palace, Panda Chinese, Umami (Japanese), and Koryo (Korean BBQ), serve customers in the prime malls of Dubai.
In 2015, CPG introduced the renowned dumpling haven, Din Tai Fung, to Dubai, earning instant acclaim. In 2021, CPG brought the popular Taiwanese Bubble Tea concept, Tiger Sugar, to the region. The cherished Chinese Palace Restaurant was also reimagined into Han Shi Fu, a modern Asian gastro pub concept.
Committed to delivering high-quality cuisine and exceptional service, CPG remains a pioneering and beloved institution in the world of Asian cuisine in the Middle East. Under the leadership of the management team, the group continues to shape the culinary landscape of Dubai and beyond.
