The Empire Bay Triads, frequently called "the Tongs" are a gang featured in Mafia II. They are a underground secret society and the Chinese equivalent to the Mafia. The Triads' territory is Chinatown, Empire Bay. They are all Chinese Americans.
They are led by Dragon Head Mr. Chu and his Enforcer Zhe Yun Wong. Their main base of operations is the SeaGift Fishing Co., a fishing company mainly devoted to the shark-related products, south of Chinatown.
In 1951, Vito Scaletta, Joe Barbaro, and Henry Tomasino did business with the Triads in the interest of making more money, after loaning the money from Bruno Levine. They then purchased the drugs from the Triads at the SeaGift Fishing Co. and made a lot of money by selling the drugs to most of the gangs in Empire Bay. The next day, the Triads, under the orders of Wong, had Henry butchered alive, witnessed by Vito and Joe in the middle of Lincoln Park board daylight. Vito and Joe then retaliate by starting a bloody rampage at the Red Dragon Restaurant, killing all of the Triad members inside, including Wong, whom before being killed by Joe, reveals that he discovers his source from the Federal Bureau of Narcotics saying that Henry had pass them information about the drug deal (revealing that Henry was a government informer).
The shootout however started a war between the Empire Bay Triads and the Mafia families of Empire Bay, causing all of them to lose soldiers and several rackets. Vinci crime family Consigliere Leone Galante returned from Lost Heaven and set up a truce with the Triads' leader Mr. Chu to put a stop to the bad blood between the gangs. It was decided that Vito would be sent to eliminate Don Carlo Falcone as redemption for what he has done, Vito succeeded in killing Don Falcone. The Triads were then attacked by a hitman named Jimmy, who destroyed many of their businesses and killed many of the Triads' Lieutenants, leaving the Triads' significantly weakened, though they are still seen in Jimmy's Vendetta, so they are still present.
