You sort of know you are on a winner when you walk in to a Chinese restaurant at 7pm on a Tuesday and it's full of people and friendly conversation....and most of them are Chinese. It's also over the top of a Chinese wholesalers. We had the banquet for 2 and took a lot of food away with us. Great... More

We mainly come here for business lunches, but the food offered is plenty and very diverse. Quite a large restaurant, and almost always quite full. So it must be popular, I guess. The food is tasty and well priced at lunch, somewhat more expensive for dinner. A good choice.

My wife and I have just been for another meal at Tai Pan... I can't believe we've never written a review on here before... we've been eating at tai pan for years now and we've never had a bad meal ever. In fact, we have to eat here every time we visit Manchester, it's that good! We love the atmosphere... More

On the whole the food is good. C&S soup contains little or no chicken. Fried rice needs a lot of improving. Dim sum are good and well priced. Ribs are pricey but tasty. Soft drinks are horrendously expensive. Orange cordial with soda water probably costs them less than 25p. They charge £3.60. Daylight robbery. Now the 10% tip is added... More

Hugely busy, but well organised. As there were quite a number in the waiting area, we were given a ticket on arrival, but the wait was not a long one. Service was attentive and brisk due to the popularity of the restaurant, so you need to think again if you are looking for a long, leisurely lunch! Oh, and the... More

After being regulars at this restaurant for many years this is the first time we have ever had a real problem. we arrived at about 7:30pm on a Sunday the 5th march 2017 and as soon as we were seated we thought this was a bad idea in the banqueting suit there was some sort of party going on which...

Went prior to gig at the apollo, food was great- good value for money. Soup, dim sum & crispy duck- all super tasty. Only disappointment was the service charge...we always leave a tip but to enforce it upon your customers left a bad taste...

Enjoyed a tasty meal of approx 4 mixed dishes between three of us on Saturday night. Absolutely delicious. Had dim sum starters, good value before 6pm sat at half price.

In Manchester for a concert at RNCM with Mario Biondi. Stayed at Ibis. I was taken here by Jenny Wong who had a Chinese food production facility near the Apollo.in 2004. The memory still stuck with me. It is above the supermarket. Ordered 5 dishes which was far too much for the two of is. Starters , mince meat encapsulated... More
