Excellent Food & good value!

This is a hidden gem. We had sesame chicken and pepper steak. Both dishes were absolutely delicious. The staff was welcoming and efficient and the restaurant was clean and comfortable. This is one of the best Asian restaurants in Tallahassee!

My friend wanted Chinese and myself Japanese for lunch and he found this place on the Internet with good reviews. When we got there, was told sushi was not available that day. We opted for the lunch buffet. Did not have that many choices. Mostly deep-fried stuffs or food cooked in similar brown sauce. Hot and sour soup only had... More

My husband and I haven't been to Tan's for lunch in more than a year and we were delighted to see they had expanded. We decided we would try their lunch buffet and we're really impressed with the quality of the dished offered. If you haven't tried it you won't be dissappointed. Extra large shrimp and marinated grill chicken skewers... More

I was not familiar with many of the dishes and the servers' English was not good enough to explain to me. Ordering food by pints and quarts was new to me and a quart was far too much though that was the only choice for some dishes. My Indonesian noodle bowl was okay : the chicken was very tender but...

9.99 for lunch buffet ??? One small counter with food. Thought at first glance .....Must be good it is so small and expensive. WRONG!! Food ok, service ok. Over all not worth it at all. Look elsewhere. Must be a better place.

We have tried this place three or four times trying to give it a chance. My husband use to go here before they expanded. The food is over processed and basically the same food you get at the quick place in every strip mall in Florida. The owner is a horror. Tonight we tried it one more time. She got... More

If you're a vegetarian, and even if you're not, give Tan's a try for lunch. The lunch buffet is $9.99 and includes several tofu entrees, including the Mongolian Tofu which is very tasty. The buffet usually includes chicken satay, absolutely delicious salt & pepper shimp, 3 Indonesian entrees, soup, steamed and fried rice, spring rolls, entrees with beef and chicken... More

We love Chinese food but were always disappointed with expensive food that was terrible. UNTIL WE FOUND TAN'S! Tan's is fresh, delicious, and has awesome prices! We typically order won ton soup, (the quart, at $4, feeds 3 of us), and my husband gets egg drop, both fantastic. Egg rolls always freshly made, hot, and delicious. Chicken lo mein ,... More

Great food at a reasonable price, nothing fancy but nonetheless I would definitely return. We had the Mongolian Beef and Sweet and Sour Chicken, both were good and would order them again. The service was for the most part timely and on the ball.
