“Fantastic service and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We loved this place so much we ate here twice in our week long holiday. The service is fantastic, everyone is so friendly and professional. And the food was great, I literally couldn't fault anything.

“The ultimate Chinese experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

High class food cooked to perfection and served by friendly waitresses. I have eaten twice here and the quality and portions were excellent. The waitresses are a credit to the owners always smiling and they even remember you when you revisit. In particular the tall Latvian waitress who makes you feel so welcome and finds time to chat to you. I feel I should also mention the Australian girl whose personality is a joy.

I can recommend the Duck with a sauce which I swear was the entire Duck and not just some straggly bits that one receives in other restaurants. The crispy Chicken in Chilli sauce is another dish that defies belief and the Ribs are to die for.

If you leave Tenerife without visiting the Imperial Tai-Pan you will have missed out on the ultimate in Chinese cuisine.

“Pricey But Good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

A truly lovely restaurant! Yes, as with all the Venture Restaurants, it's expensive when you compare it to others offering a similar menu nearby, but the atmosphere and the service sets it apart from the rest. The food is delicious. A nice treat during our holiday!
