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.

At last, authentic dishes from the Far East

We've had a couple of business dinners here recently and the food was of excellent quality and the service, superb. If you have any special requirements, they are prepared to go off menu for you.

Walked into the restaurant with no booking on Chinese New Year. Was very busy but for seated straight away. All the staff were lovely and the food was lovely also. If your brave enough to use chop sticks that's the first open however luckily for me the fork was also an option :) would definatly return soon.

The food and service were excellent and the seating comfortable. We didn't have to wait long to be served. There is nothing I disliked about it.

I regularly go with my husband and best friend and we are blown away each time with the service, quality of food and delicious dim sum. I love love love this... More

Being the the only Chinese restaurant in Central Milton Keynes that serves DimSum, we decided to give this a try to see how it compares with London Chinatown. However, when we got there, the place was packed and the waiting time was over 1 hour. We decided that we were too hungry to wait and decided to eat elsewhere. Being... More
