Not usually a fan of office Christmas lunches as everything is rushed and mass produced. However, I would go back here in an instant for any lunch menu. The atmosphere was good, service top class ... not rushed, or too slow, and the food amazing! Definitely recommended!!

Love coming to the tai pan - the won ton noodle soup is the best in the city - also the cold mixed meats off the bone are Delicious (belly pork, roast duck and char Sui) Also recommend the pal choi with garlic and spinach. Great staff and amazing food

The food here is great, however the greedy owners have recently introduced a 10% service charge. Pay your staff a decent living wage and you wouldn't need to do this.

Came here with our two young kids. We were able to park at the restaurant and get a table no problem (early January). We ordered dim sum for the kids, and belly pork and dandanmian noodles for ourselves. The restaurant had a good atmosphere - mainly families.

Enjoyed meal until large group of deadbeats began confrontation which became physical as they did not want to pay their £200 bill causing big confrontation. Why not let them leave and let the cops and cctv take care of the bill instead of a fight next to my... More
