Ordered take-out this past weekend and we were very disappointed. The fried rice dish we ordered smelled burnt as soon as we opened the cover and the taste was not much better. The egg rolls are very unappetizing, I am not sure if they are authentic but they have a brown paste inside and taste terrible. I have never had... More

This restaurant has become tired. Although there in August, Christmas decorations were hanging from the ceilings! The experience was made most unpleasant by the gentleman at a rear table, obviously with connections to the restaurant as he popped into and out of the kitchen and hosted staff at his table,who conducted business via a speaker phone- so inappropriate! I found... More

This is a great little restaurant tuck away in Colby plaza and while it is by no means fancy inside the food is excellent. No matter what you chose you won't be disappointed.

This USED to be my favorite restaurant overall in Dartmouth...Not anymore. Curry beef had literally less than a handful of beef and the rest was about 2 cups of green pepper (which admittedly was firm and fresh). Even less chicken in Curry Chicken. Egg rolls still good but if you're looking for any meat, forget it. Very obviously a tactic... More

Nestled in the Coby Village Plaza, this quaint little Chinses restaurant has a solid menu, good food and excellent take-out service.

When we moved over from Halifax we were looking for a good Chinese place on this side of the bridge.We tried a few different places and Tans is the best!They have great prices, and portions.They don't charge as much or aren't as strict as some other places about substitutions.The service is not great but it is typical of other chinese...

Went to Tan's for the first time recently, even though they have been in the neighbourhood for years. Had a combo plate that had two of my favorites, Almond guy ding and beef and broccoli in one combo, so that was a score. Enjoyed the egg rolls, different taste than others I have had, but good nonetheless. Would return.
