Good for Pre-Theatre Dining

This is an ideal spot for anyone who wants a meal before going to the Theatre MK. The restaurant is only 3 minutes walk from the theatre and is geared up for early evening trade: service is fast and efficient and remains polite and friendly. There is good quality Chinese food on offer, with... read more

My husband and I recently visited this restaurant for a pre-theatre dinner. The location is excellent as its next door to Milton Keynes Theatre which is exactly what we wanted. When we arrived there were only two or three tables full but within half an hour the restaurant was packed. We found the service good but I would suggest that... More

This was my first visit to the Tiapan and was so pleased, the place is very much like the restaurants in Hong Kong the service was very good. I thought the food was really good and authentic. It was good to find a restaurant that is not a chain. Will be going again.

Love here because they have the biggest choices for Dim Sum lovers in Milton Keynes. The minced pork congee with preserved egg is delicious, we all love a big bowl for sharing! However the size of dishes on Menu becomes shrinked every year-due to the economic crunch time? That's why we haven't had main dishes there since 2 years ago.

This is real Cantonese food not the usual rubbish you get in chinese take aways and buffets. It reminded me a lot of the food served in Singapore. The clientele was at least 50% Chinese having a family get together which tells you that it is authentic. We tried various dishes, personally my favourites were the deep fried dishes for... More

This was my third time to visit and eat at Taipan Restaurant in Milton Keynes even though I don't live in MK. My family went there to celebrate my daughter's 17th birthday. As usual, the restaurant was busy but we were ushered to a table as soon as we entered. Someone attended to us straight away and took our orders.... More

I can't believe that this was the first time we'd visited this gem of authentic Chinese food. Full of Chinese families, so we knew we were likely to be onto a good thing. We happened to go at Chinese new year, and they were packed out, so service was a bit slow, but they couldn't have been nicer about it,... More
