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.

This place is awesome! The best dim sum in Buckinghamshire. Why go to London for freshly/daily made dim sum when you have this amazingly delicious place on your doorstep. 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

Tried this restaurant for the first time last night before our visit to the theatre. Will definitely be back to try out some more dishes. We had a selection of Dim Sum to start with which was the best I've ever had. Followed by a number of different main course dishes. All were excellent. Fabulous flavours and very fresh. One... 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

I love this restaurant! I've never had a bad meal here and I've eaten here regularly since 2006. Best Chinese in Milton Keynes!

We've been coming to Taipan since it opened all those many years ago. The food is really fresh, authentic, delicious, and good value. Having spent the past four years in Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, China, etc., I can say, first hand, that none of the scores and scores of places I frequented out East can hold a candle to Taipan.

We came here just before Christmas. There was a good selection on the menu and we shared a set menu with a few extra dishes. All the food was cooked well and the crispy beef was one of the best we have had. Great food and very attentive service from friendly fast staff. A super meal!

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

I love my dim sum. We recently moved to MK from London and we had to try out the local standard. I can't seem to find anywhere else in MK that serves dim sum apart from Taipan. 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
