Just went again after being in Az for 10 years and was glad to see the quality has not changed, service was excellent and the place is pleasant to dine in.

This is a great Chinese restaurant! We dine here at least twice a month. The sushi is terrific and super fresh! All the usual Chinese food favorites spiced to order. General Tso's chicken, Basil chicken, crispy prawn Sichuan and Birds Nest are all fantastic. Great friendly and professional staff all at a very good price.

On our way home from a matinee in Pittsburgh, we took an unexpected chance on this restaurant, having not been there for years. It was happy hour (4 to 6) with appetizer and drink specials. Feasting on the appetizers, we later order a wonderful meal or mainly seafood. Everything was fresh tasting and beautifully presented. We liked it so much... More

Very good family owned restaurant, very welcoming atmosphere. Food is quite good, as is service. You won't be disappointed. Very cheap, but the food does not reflect this. Parking may sometimes be a problem on Friday or Saturday nights, but not usually. Overall, great place for families and friends.

This restaurant is close to work, so I have been here for lunch and picked up dinner for take-out. I really like the general tso's shrimp. I haven't seen it on many Chinese restaurant menu's. My stand-by chicken and broccoli is also good here. The staff is always friendly. I just recently used the online ordering system and it worked... More

Overshadowed a bit by Jimmy Wan's for locals, Tai Pei offers a better value with maybe less ambiance than Jimmy Wan's. Traditional Chinese fare, all well priced. Great place for a quick lunch and take out. Easy to get to and fast. Great service, you won't be disappointed.

Have visited a couple of times now when I go to Pittsburgh. The fact that we keep going back says something. First thing to note, the service - very good, matter of fact its excellent. Typical chinese or tai menu, lots to choose from. We like the varying degrees of hotness you can add. Dumplings are great. Broccoli chicken, general... More

We have either eaten in or done takeout around 6 times in the last 4-5 months and always had a good experience. Today we ordered 5 take out dishes (totally around $85), including Szechuan shrimp and scallops as we usually do. The shrimp were not edible--incredibly mushy and bad tasting. My wife called to complain and they basically blamed it... More

We live in the Fox Chapel area and eat at Tai Pei two or three times a month. We've found that it's the best Chinese in this part of the city by far. The Chinese food is delicious, and the sushi is very fresh and well made. They do all the standard Chinese fare well, and have excellent chef special... More
