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).

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.

Great authentic Chinese

Been here for dinner on several occasions. The food is nicely cooked and presented, with some interesting dishes on the menu. Try the hunan chicken it's lovely!! Service is very good but some dishes are rather expensive hence four stars.

Nice ambience and restaurant, was quite busy for 630. We decided to book after looking up on trip advisor as I have walked by here many times and we fancied trying somewhere different. It was good service and nice food but we've had better and we thought it was very expensive when we got the bill (and we had the... More

I went here with some colleagues and it was really quiet, but it was mid week so really didn't expect it to be busy. Staff were polite and attentive and the food was really, really nice. Great place to eat and I would be happy to come here again :)

Great dim sum - don't be afraid to ask the waiter/waitress to explain there are more than happy to do so - this is very good authentic food with great variety from the traditional fayre to the adventurous. Main dishes are also very tasty and plentiful. Good value for money overall with tea constantly topped up

Bright and airy restaurant with, at the time of our visit, very welcome air-conditioning. The three of us chose the Hong Kong set menu which was more than ample with mixed starters, duck and pancakes and a selection of main courses with a generous bowl of rice. We added the Dim Sum Platter between the starters and the duck as... More

I always like to go into a Chinese restaurant and see the majority of diners are Chinese. That was the case when we called in to the Taipan. We had a seven dish Dim Sum with Chinese tea and beer and it was really well prepared and well served. The dishes were so tasty and flavoursome. The Chinese beer was... More

Not our first visit, but it has been a while since we ate here. The food quality has clearly been maintained and servings are certainly not small, as I read in another review. Service was prompt and efficient. We had the mixed starters which although not containing any surprises were all very enjoyable. The Aromatic Duck likewise was really good.... More
