As someone who loves chinese food, and lives in Manchester, I have to say that Tai Pan restaurant is not good. I did another review on the best chinese restaurant in Manchester (Tai Wu) earlier today and Tai Pan does not compare
A reason why is from the Manchester Evening News, where Tai Pan have been fined £70,000, a record fine, where its hygiene standards 'absolutely outrageous. Full of cockroaches, yum yum :S
Search for "Tai Pan & Men news" on google and click on the first link to see the news of Tai Pans cochroaches disgrace
I used to eat there and they do have a car park but thats all they have, the food is slow to come out compared to other chinese restaurants, the food is served in smaller portions and everytime I order a coca cola, and ask for no ice, why do they always give me ice, do they not understand what "no ice" means???
The quality of the food is not too bad but after seeing the article from the Manchester evening news, the food thinking back may of been more crunchy them usual.
The supermarket downstairs is very good and I would recommend that if you want to buy chinese groceries to go thee but the restaurant is not good and if you want decent chinese go to tai wu and not tai pan
Thank you for reading my review and if you want good chinese food at good prices do not go there, go to Tai Wu. Unless you like cochroaches :S
For best dim sum, visit Tai Pan. Unfortunately, it is not located in the China Town. Therefore, if you come from outside Manchester, you may have difficulties finding it. It is so popular that it is always packed to capacity, especially during the weekend. It has the widest variety of dim sum. If you are a dim sum lover, you should not miss this. The style of serving is verylike typical dim sum restaurants in Hong Kong whereby there are waiters/ waitresses pushing the dim sum trollies around the restaurant. To order, simply stop the waiters and waitresses and choose your dim sum. Unfortunately, it's quite expensive, but the good food justify the high cost.
