We chose off the menu rather than the set menu. It was all OK, but nothing spectacular...... But no complaints. Portion sizes not bad. Maybe slightly under seasoned, but acceptable. If it weren't so far I'd use more often.

Visited this Taipan before going to Milton Keynes theatre. It fitted the bill perfectly - an inexpensive, very enjoyable meal with particularly good service. We would return.

We are so glad you found the meal inexpensive and very enjoyable. However your remarks do not really correlate with your rating ! So we suspect that may be a typo error and you may tippex it. :-) More

We were a group of five. The restaurant was pretty busy so we explained, after a warm welcome, that we were there for a pre-theatre meal. The staff could not have done more to make sure we ate quickly but without being rushed. The food was delicious and the wine good - properly chilled where appropriate. Service was attentive and...

During the CNY, 11 of us had pre-ordered a 8-course Cantonese banquet to share and enjoy. We all loved it so much and the price is surprisingly cheap. Less than £30, we have lobster, fish, chicken, pulled pork, slow cooked seafood soup, 3 type of vegetables, beef, roast duck, about 20 kinds of ingredients in one go! It is yummy... More

We called in to Taipan on a spur of the moment thing as we were craving a Chinese fix (my wife's Chinese). We were delighted to find that we recognised numerous dishes on the menu that you'd get in China. It was a Sunday afternoon and it was great to see the Chinese families all out enjoying their lunch.

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 The restaurant has several tables which are not too close each other, but overall it seems a place bit outdated.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.
