Consistent, just like your average Chinese takeaway. It could have been from my local so no complaints from me albeit a tad more expensive which seems to be the theme in Fowey.

In a great town with lots of other options (we now know!) the food quality really is not good enough. I had a fairly basic chow mein where the ingredients appeared to have been cooked separately, and mine was probably the least bad. We all had stomach aches after too

After eating here once before I was happy with the food not so much the staff but didn't bother me to much as I ordered food and took it with me. Me and my partner don't have takeaways that often and being pregnant I really wanted a Chinese!! We live only a couple of minutes drive from the Chinese so... More

We always have at least one trip to Tai Pan when we visit Fowey, either dining in or having a take-away. For some reason the restaurant is never busy, you can nearly always get a table.

The last day of our week in Fowey, not many in when we arrived, but soon filled up. A lot of takeaways also being done. The service was pleasant and the food was also good. The only criticism I could make would be the price of the drinks, £3.50 for a bottle of Tiger !

The duck & plum sauce with pineapple dish is truly excellent and a generous portion. Sweet & sour chicken, egg fried rice and prawn crackers all for a bargain £21.10 for TAKE AWAY food

I wouldn't normally choose a Chinese/Taipan restaurant when visiting somewhere new but the other places nearby didn't appeal or were too busy so I wondered in. Very glad I did. The staff were very friendly and attentive, and the food arrived quickly and was excellent. Fresh and crisp vegetables, mix of good flavours and no slimy sauce - the opposite... More

An evening meal with no reservation, we enjoyed the delicious food. Service was efficient and accurate, I would recommend this establishment without hesitation.
