Best fried rice I've ever had....

That would be the Indonesian shrimp fried rice... On the other hand, the Indonesian Chicken curry was so-so. First time I have sampled Indonesian food, so obviously I cannot rate the cuisine compared to other Indonesian restaurants. Service was very attentive and friendly, and the restaurant is... read 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.

This is the only place to go for quality Chinese in Tallahassee. I've had the egg foo young, pepper steak, sweet and sour pork, chicken and shrimp fried rice, AND ALL WERE EXCELLENT!

We probably go more often but we really enjoy our meals at Tan's. I must confess I thought their lunch buffet was too pricey when they announced it, but it's definitely worth the price of 9.99. Very good selection of a variety of foods. Some Indonesian too. Best desserts of any Asian restaurant I've ever had. You can choose from... More

Awesome tofu options. Mongolian tofu was delicious. The buffet offered wonderful options for all. Like too many options! Sushi, apps, meat-lovers, vegetarian, soups, fruits, desserts (all kinds of ice cream bars, as well as traditional Asian desserts), and more. One of my regular spots for sure! I can also hit up Esposito's after my meal and that's always fun :-)

Their Indonesian food is really great. If you can handle spiciness, you'll love their babi ricarica. I like their Taiwanese noodle soup and egg rolls too. Don't get your typical Americanized Chinese food here tho. It could be really disappointing.

This cafe is quite a find. I visit Tallahassee frequently and didn't even know it was there. The food was freshly cooked and served by friendly servers. The portions were huge - enough to take with us for a second meal. We love Asian food but not the prefab buffet kind. This is an answer to our wishes! Highly recommend!

Recently visited with a large group of 35 and they were very accommodating, friendly, with quick service and LARGE portioned entree's. If you are in town THIS is the place you want to go.

Trust me, try the Mongolian tofu! Try the Indonesian options and go ahead and splurge on those Chinese donuts. This place is locally owned and operated; Tan herself is often in the kitchen cooking. The place has recently remodeled and expanded. It does seem that they struggle to keep a trained waitstaff in place so service can be lacking.
