Description: Taipan restaurant in the heart of Milton Keynes' theatre district is a bright and stylish venue for pre/post theatre meals, corporate events and romantic nights out. The restaurant's elegant light and airy interior is designed with clean lines and a neutral colour palette, providing a contrasting backdrop to the traditional Chinese cuisine. Taipan's classic menu specialises in seafood, and also offers an extensive selection of dim sum. We recommend the baked lobster with ginger and spring onion; the saut��ed pork chop with black pepper and honey sauce; fried scallops with asparagus; and the squid with green pepper and black bean sauce. With its impressive menu and sophisticated ambience, Taipan is guaranteed to impress whatever the occasion.

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

I've been to Taipan twice for pre-theatre meals, and once with a big group. The food is always very tasty - especially anything in the black bean sauce! Service is good and attentive in general.

We often go to Taipan on a weekend, the food is consistently good. We have tried most dishes including Dim sum at lunch time, which was new to us at the time, but ended up being enjoyed by all. The staff are always incredibly friendly and helpful, giving the best table available. The atmosphere is friendly and the restaurant itself... More

We went here as it had been recommended by a friend so our expectations were quite high. Food was ok but over priced in my humble opinion. Service was terrible, rude waiters who wouldn't give us explanations of dishes, no thanks after payment, the list just went on. I sent them 2 emails complaining to which I have received 0... More

Very friendly welcome from the staff and shown to a lovely table with turntable centre which proved very useful throughout the evening. Drinks arrived promptly and our first course of crispy duck as tasty as always. Supplied extra sauce without a quibble and offered extra pancakes later on - no hesitation. Main courses arrived over a period of 5 minutes... More

visited on a Sunday lunchtime so restaurant was busy with a number of large groups but despite this the food was served efficiently and was of good quality. Lots of choice and well cooked and authentic. Staff friendly.

The dim sum portions were substantial but the quality was not great. Cheung fun was over-steamed to the point that they had become soft and were falling apart. Octopus fishcakes, pale and tasteless. Generally, edible but not great.

We regularly travel to MK for the dim sum here. This re-review is because I was confused at the so-so reviews here on TA (although looking at the kinds of restaurant that ARE highly rated in MK, maybe that's OK). I've had dim sum in many places where it's been very highly rated: San Francisco, New York, Boston, London. None... More
