Went before a show - enticed by the thought of DimSum and some drinks prior. Unfortunately they had none! Although otherwise a lovely meal we were a tad disappointed. Still would likely go back :-)

Chose the seafood menu for two and it didn’t disappoint, my gluten allergy was catered to and I really felt like they cared and took pride in their food. Will definitely go back, sooner rather than later

Been to the Taipan many times and the food is exceptional, the teriyaki cube steak is to die for, only small negative is the price of a bottle of wine, but will accept for a great dining experience

I don't believe so, if I recall the toilets are upstairs but there may well be a disabled toilet on the ground floor, there is certainly a ramp to get to tables which are on a slightly lower level than the entrance

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.
