We had the theatre booked for my birthday and decided to give Taipan a go beforehand. The homemade DimSum was fabulous. We ordered a few of our favourite dishes including Peking duck and chilli squid - all beautifully presented and delicious. The service was gentle and friendly with a good wine menu. We took the children and they loved it... More

We have visited this restaurant many times with our children and now visit it with our grand children. The family gets very excited for every visit to this wonderful restaurant, where we always have a friendly service and excellent selection of dim sums. Enjoyed it again yesterday, would have scored higher however the service was not as great and friendly... More

2 course meal didn't disappoint, fresh and tasty and at less than £40 for 2 of us it didn't break the bank. Would definitely recommend this little restaurant as a pre show treat. Service was fast and courteous and the drink prices average. Duck was very good.

As always a great lunch, delicious dim sum and caters well for the children. A firm family favourite. Sunday lunch is usually busy so best to book ahead.

Taipan has been open for many years, and I visited only to realise why I had never ben in before. Many years ago it was popular but when we visited it was only one table of visiting businessmen, myself and my partner. The food was pretty bad and the service was very unfriendly. I am surprised they are still open... More

Reading this review we knew roughly what this is about so we clicked on the reviewer's photo and tried to understand more. There are more than 12 reviews dated 17 June which covered not only Milton Keynes. So this is a review from an unusually prolific reviewer and we would ask readers to interpret as such. We invite TripAdvisor to... More

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.
