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

Taipan is a good choice for theatre goers as it is conveniently located in the Theatre District (just behind the theatre). I have been here twice and have found the food to be of good quality and taste. Authentic oriental taste. The hunan chicken is amazing. The dim sums are by far the best available in MK. Other than that,... More

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.

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
