Description: 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.

“Very nice food, a little too fast!”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

Really nice Chinese food, we had a range of well known dishes to share, including Crispy Chilli Beef, Aromatic Duck, Singapore Noodles, Pak Choi in Oyster sauce etc. We had the perfect amount for our occasion, after the theatre and before a night out. I would recommend for this purpose. Not much choice for desserts, so went to TGI Friday opposite for dessert. Great price too, including wine we only spent £13 per person. Only downfall was that it was all served so fast. We were in and out within the hour. other than that great Chinese in MK!

“Best Chinese in MK”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

This is by far the best chinese in MK for a sit down a la carte meal...for a Chinese buffet go to the Zen Garden though.
The food is of an excellent quality and the price is fair. The staff are professional and very welcoming. This is the best restaurant in the Theatre District.

“A lovely relaxed evening with good food”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

I was taken to this restaurant b a friend who has been there man times and I was really impressed. I was spoilt for choice but we chose a set menu with a couple of extra dishes. Well to say we were full at the end is an understatement as there was so much food we could not finish it all. The taste of the food was delicious and i will definitely return. The staff were very attentive and were willing to explain what some of the dishes were. If you like chinese food this is the restaurant to go to.

“Birthday party for 18 people”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

Being a big party we asked the waiter to bring a selection of food. We had a wonderful selection of starters followed by a yummy selection of main dishes. All cooked to perfection and so much we couldn't finish it all. Cost was £20 per head and included wine/beer plus some hot beverage after. Only one in the party had room for pud.
Can't wait for an excuse to return.
