Description: Taipan is a Chinese restaurant based in the heart of Milton Keynes' Theatre district. Our food combines high quality and fresh ingredients to create a very modern take on traditional Chinese dishes. And because we are independent, we can craft new dishes and create bespoke meals to cater for individual tastes.Our chefs have worked in some of the most high profile restaurants in East Asia including the 5 star Shanghai Hilton and the Hong Kong Jockey Club (Formally the Royal Jockey Club). Because of their experience, we are able to offer a wide selection of dishes of the highest quality dishes, with Seafood and Dim Sum being some of our most established and popular dishes. At Taipan, we don't do anything by half measures. Our ingredients are hand-picked by our chefs from the highest quality sources - even our seafood menu has more dishes than most specialist seafood restaurants. The quality of our food is supplemented by our drinks menu, which includes a variety of some of the finest wines and champagnes from around the world. We'll help you decide what drinks best complement your food, to ensure that not a single taste is wasted. If you would like to know more about what goes in our food, please get in touch via our contacts page or Twitter feed and we'll be more than happy to chat.

My partner and I have been coming here for quite some time, we especially love the Dim Sum's which are unfortuantely only available at the weekend, we tend to work our way through the menu as its so varied. The place itself is basic, clean and... More

We did the standard order for 2 persons of 6-7 items. The century egg and pork congee was average, slightly too wet and... More

Awful service. Dim sum came half way through the main course - never ever had this before in any Chinese restaurant. When they did arrive they were undercooked. The main course was actually very nice.

My sister, parents and I visited Taipan on our first visit to Milton Keynes and we were not disappointed. As we entered the restaurant there was a warm welcome to greet us and we were immediately shown to a table. After a short time the drinks order was taken and then we ordered our food. The food was piping hot... More

I have written a review about this restaurant before and then complained via email to the manager. I have to say that he responded with a good offer for us. We visited the restaurant again tonight and a completely different outcome. I was sure not to let them know who I was when I got in so I didn't get... More

Visited here on a Sat eve having got a baby sitter to look after the kiddies. Food was fantastic and staff were brilliant. We were too full after our starters and Duck to manage our main course and rice and they offered to cancel the order without any qualms. I can't think of any English restaurant/pub that would do that.... More
