In ancient Asian culture, there was the “Tin Drummer,” — part announcer and part wake-up caller. Each morning, he walked the streets banging a tin drum, gathering people at lively cafés to fuel their bodies and their minds. 

Today, we at Tin Drum celebrate the legend of the Tin Drummer — the idea that anyone can make a big impact. We all are equal and possess magic potential because the same sun shines equally on everyone. 

Just as we want to make upscale Asian food accessible and affordable for our customers, we want to give as many potential Owners as possible the chance to realize their dream of owning a restaurant.  

Tin Drum Asian Kitchen provides a break from the everyday. It is a place to explore delicious pan-Asian products in a Hong Kong-inspired curbside environment — all the while paying homage to the concept of the Tin Drummer, that an ordinary person can do extraordinary things.



After formally training as an architect at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Steven Chan opens the first Tin Drum location in Atlanta.
