The airconditioning in the front section needs to be turned on or replaced. Happy with the food itself. Good value for $. I don't like the flies they get sometimes.

Great food, great service & extra-clean restaurant... :-) The most inexpensive, but still really nice buffet, in town. Easy parking & well located. Definitely a real winner !

Because of great ads in the papers we decided to visit Tai Tong for a family occasion, it was certainly memorable!

We have been going to Tai Tong for many years now and tried all the others. They have the tastiest take aways in town. A really good selection of food, quick and easy and always topping up.

I quite liked the food a little pricey but I like it but they should work on variety a bit. However it was great to have nice friendly people serving and i had a great time over all.

The first thing we noticed when we entered Tai Tong is the place is very run down. The tables, carpets, toilets etc are noticeably old and it is really a time where a good renovation is needed. Three of us had whole duck, Kung Pao Chicken, and Seaweed Soup for lunch. The food tastes above average. I would say around... More
