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

I've always left happy whether I'm part of a big work party or just with my hubby. All the usual Chinese dishes well prepared, but some other cuisine too.

Well priced buffet. All you can eat, it was great. The food was really tasty and they kept filling the buffet bar with meat not just veggies like some places. Would continue to go there.

Use to eat here for weekend lunch. After 3 not so good experiences have given up. Food lacked taste and some was dry and overcooked. Shame!

We had a group of 13 for a birthday dinner celebration. Pre-booked a few days before hand. We arrived and our table had been given to someone else? Staff then rushed around to organise another (SMALLER) table. We were all VERY squashed, but thankful we were finally seated. Guests made their way out to the buffet area to be met... More
