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.

“Cold awful food”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

My husband & I went here for my birthday as the last time we visited the food was amazing. What a disappointment. The food was cold except for the sweet , which we had because we were still hungry!! The rice was obviously heated up, not very well, & very greasy.
Overall a dreadful experience one that we will not be repeating & to add insult to injury the bill was £72 & the only drinks we had were a bottle of beer each. So sad to see such an amazing restaurant go so far downhill.

We feel deeply sorry to learn that the cooking on Wednesday didi not meet your expectation and we apologise for that. Though during your dinner we did not observe any gesture nor pick up any comments that the food was not good. Please come again with your receipt and we will do you a good deal. Bryan/Manager.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

My daughter and I visited this restaurant for a pre-theatre meal on a friend's recommendation. The food was mediocre and disappointing, although the portions were large, and I felt the meal was very overpriced. I was not impressed either that the service charge is automatically added to your bill. The staff were helpful but very busy. Not a very good experience and we will not be eating there again.

“Only dim sum in MK!”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

Love going here for some lunchtime dim sum.
Service always very good and quick and food is great! The chilli oil is hot, so beware :)
There are usually quite a few Chinese diners eating in there, which can only be a good sign of the quality and authenticity of the their food.
Great choice of dishes versus price, so what's. It to like!?!

Thank you for liking our dim sum, and if you enjoy spicy food then our Fish Fillet in Sichuan Spicy Soup will take you one step further. Hope to see you in Taipan again soon.

Mark, we are trying to do more takeaways, and for limited coverage we are starting a delivery service due to a NOT-IDEAL PARKING enviroment.
