This is an excellent lunch time venue with freshly made food and very attentive staff. The range of dim sum is really good and so are the puddings.

This was a spur of the moment solo lunch. I was made very welcome and the server was excellent, this was my first visit so I had no idea of the portion sizes that would come. She guided me well because it would have been easy to over order because the lunch menu and a la carte were all very... More

Eating at Taipan is a nice experience, the service is quick and kind. The restaurant has several tables which are not too close each other, but overall it seems a place bit outdated. The food is not bad, but noting really special with the exception of the pork belly which was absolutely spot on. M.

Went there due to Amex's shop small promotion for dim sum lunch. The quality of food has slipped since the last time I visited (rumour has it that their chef has left the restaurant). Fried noodles were either too wet or too salty, the dim sums were no where near the spectacular quality it used to have. They also no... More

We feel sorry about the misunderstanding. We have never accepted Amex. We know nothing about Amex Promotional Discount. We are not aware of a small business map. We have not received any similar comments about our noodles and dim sums, but please do let us know on the spot if you are not pleased with anything about the restaurant. We... More

After being turned away from Zizzi, we went in to the Taipan. What a difference!!! Warm welcome. Of course we can get you through for the matinee. Special pre-theatre lunch - absolutely lovely. Warm welcome, good service and lovely food.

Went here for my 50th birthday meal with my wife. Our local Chinese had closed down just 48 hours before my birthday so in panic we took to the internet and came across Taipan. I'm so glad we did. It's not cheap, I'll say that.... But the portions were enormous, the waiting staff were attentive and personable. And as for... More

Before Madam Butterfly, at the Milton Keynes Theatre last Saturday, we dined at Taipan......the perfect choice. The food was well cooked and beautifully presented by the staff. A beautiful start to a perfect evening. One little tip, if you go for the 'set menu's' buy two for three. We had three for three and were 'almost' overwhelmed by the volume... More

We love going to Taipan as a family, usually once a month. We often go at lunch time for the Dim Sum menu, which is always excellent. Of course we have our regular favourites but there is also a number of different specials for added choice and variety. The staff are always warm, friendly and welcoming. Judging by the high...

Taipan is a Chinese restaurant based in the heart of Milton Keynes' Theatre district. Our food combines high quality and fresh ingredients to create a very modern take on traditional Chinese dishes. And because we are independent, we can craft new dishes and create bespoke meals to cater for individual tastes.Our chefs have worked in some of the most high profile restaurants in East Asia including the 5 star Shanghai Hilton and the Hong Kong Jockey Club (Formally the Royal Jockey Club). Because of their experience, we are able to offer a wide selection of dishes of the highest quality dishes, with Seafood and Dim Sum being some of our most established and popular dishes. At Taipan, we don't do anything by half measures. Our ingredients are hand-picked by our chefs from the highest quality sources - even our seafood menu has more dishes than most specialist seafood restaurants. The quality of our food is supplemented by our drinks menu, which includes a variety of some of the finest wines and champagnes from around the world. We'll help you decide what drinks best complement your food, to ensure that not a single taste is wasted. If you would like to know more about what goes in our food, please get in touch via our contacts page or Twitter feed and we'll be more than happy to chat.
