Amazing meal with really attentive service, the chilli squid was the best I have ever had. Bit pricey but it was a special occasion so was worth it. Looking forward to going back.

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

Sorry I don't know, I always call them and book. More often we don't book for lunch but always get a table.

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.
