Our favorite as locals of San Fernando, La Union Affordable, delicious, quality Chinese food at the price of Chowking. yes you got that right. The restaurant offers a wide variety of dishes and cold cuts. Our favorites- their pansit, chicken feet and braised pork. I usually order their dishes too for special occasions at home. Restaurant is spacious and always... More

I don't find their food tasty enough but they look visually appetising and inexpensive compared to other chinese restaurant. Ambience is great but can get very crowded at times. Parking is a problem as there are limited spaces. All in all, just ok for me.

I have been to taipan many times and although i enjoy the food i find the staff are undertrained, forgetful and at times show no interest. many times there are too many staff so they are standing around chatting or day dreaming and are inattentive as they have so little to do. sometimes you have to ask several times for...

I visited Taipan Garden Restaurant during my 6-day Post Graduate Training on San Fernando. The place is nice, modern design and could be compared to Chinese Cuisine Restaurant in Manila. What I like most with this Restaurant is their value for money. Me and my friends count 4. So we ordered 4 dishes. When the orders arrive. You could see... More

Some of the servers are somewhat sulky. The food is delicious though and the place is nice. The servers should be more nice and helpful.

If you like to enjoy free air-conditioning, you are probably at the right place. Because until you will getting served it takes time. We have been here several times. The waiters/ waitresses are not attentive at all. Food is good.

The service is very slow and poor. I think most of those employees der are new and they need more training on how to deal with customers. You must check the food before u serve, it must be clean, presentable and taste good. Tell ur employees to avoid chatting with each other while on duty, concentrate to customers needs.

The food served was average at best. The service staff was slow and looked depressed. This brought the ambience factor to an unsatisfactory level. We ordered dimsum and some soups which took nearly 45 minutes to arrive. There were also too many flies. We will not be revisiting.
