I went there with two friends,because my one friend wanted Chinese. This was my first and LAST time!! The food had apparently been on the steam line for a very long time. The food had been there so long it had begun to stick to the steam pan. The only thing I found I thought I would eat was pineapple chicken. It also looked as if it had been there a while.I ate about 1/4 cup of that & a little rice. I began to feel very nauseated & couldn t eat anything else. One of my friends had never eaten Chinese, she didn t find anything she wanted to eat. She asked if they had just chicken fingers. The server was rude & told her it was a Chinese restaurant and they didn t have those. However, the other friend enjoyed her lunch. As we were paying for our food, I asked the owner if he was going to charge me for my food. He said he wouldn t charge me full price. He charged 7.95 instead of 9.95. Instead of making a scene, I paid it. I will never go to this place again!!! It was HORRIBLE!!!!!!
REAL Chinese food - the luncheon buffet at less than $10 per person is so worth it!!! Food is fresh, incredibly tasty and the only place I have been able to find sesame balls with red bean paste in Huntsville or Madison!
Went there for dinner and I must say the food was horrible. Would never go back. The beef dish I had was full of fat and greasy. There were a lot of cars out front, but the restaurant was virtually empty.
It used to be a good place to eat lunch, but they went up on prices even before the gas price increased. Their carped is so dark it looks like they never clean it. They have also taken a lot for their old menu items. We have decided to go somewhere else where prices are still low and the diversity in the menu is a plus!
Tai Pan restaurant gave us a very wonderful dining experience. The dishes are delicious and authentic Cantonese. The services are friendly and professional. The environment is welcoming and clean. All items are very competitively priced.
We like the spicy pork the best. It is properly seasoned with a bit of salt and pepper and then deep fried. The additional step they took to remove the bit of frying oil make the pork extra crispy to almost crunchy. It is one of the best meat dishes I ever had.
If this place was thirty miles north of where it is, it would be the best Chinese restaurant in Tennessee. As it is, I'm confident it's among the best in Alabama.
My personal benchmark for a Chinese restaurant is the quality of the hot and sour soup. Few places really get it right; Tai Pan is one of them.
The kung pao chicken - and the other dishes I've had here - don't stand up quite so well in absolute terms, but they're still very good compared to what else is locally available.
I've had better Chinese food in Seattle, DC, Toronto, and New York, but this is the best you can do in north Alabama.
