Went with a group of 13 for a birthday meal. We had booked a table 3 days beforehand. As a table we ordered 5 starters and 4 main courses with a rice (noodles are extra!). There was not enough food for the whole table e.g. 2 plates of lemon chicken between 13 people, and I never had any sweet &... More

Like so many cheap and cheerful Chinese restaurants, the Tai Kar has a set price menu where you can choose up to five starters and five main courses, plus rice and/or noodles. The quantities are filling, but the quality leaves a lot to be desired. Frankly it tastes like it is exactly the same food you had in every other... More

Not good food at all. Rushed to eat, poor décor. Food was very poor across the board. You are better using the takeaway on park parade.

We decided to try the buffet here after previously going to the China brasserie and finding it average. It was fairly busy in the restaurant and everyone around us seemed to be enjoying themselves. The service was reasonable - no real complaints. Food was good and seemed fresh - I note previous comments about possible second hand or two day... More

Been a couple of years ago since last visited the restaurant, never had any problems until now. Staff were very rude and abrupt, food has definitley gone down hill and prices are extortionate. Nearly £40 later just for two people. No wonder it was so quiet, it being on a Saturday evening too. Very dissapointing as this used to be... More

Saturday night treat for the 2 hungry boys. Polite, knowledgable and really friendly staff.!! The food was good and fairly priced. Wine costs very reasonable.! The only slight down side was the decor. The decorating seems to have been rushed and not done very well, (I'm sure the 8yr old I was with would have cut in better). The mouldy... More

You get to choose 5 starters and mains for your meal. The food is tasty and served to you at your table on hot plates. A decent Chinese restaurant, worth a visit
