Great for dinner before a show. A bit pricey for what it is but it's the location I guess. Service was good. Bit disappointed Deep Fried Ice Cream was unavailable at the time. Overall would go back.

The Sichuan Chicken was nice enough but had peanuts (my partner is allergic) yet the menu didn't indicate that it'd contain peanuts. Pretty poor at best and dangerous at worst! Also didn't actually taste any Sichuan pepper in there, and isn't that the point? Shredded beef was more sweet than 'piquant' - it was like what beef dessert. Number 8 cocktail was delicious, as were the pot stickers. Overall a bit 'meh', even if the staff were lovely.

Pork Dumplings were raw on the inside. Received an apology but not ok in the first place.

Service is good. A little too noisy on a busy road

We have been to Tai Tai previously and had a better experience.
This time we had two fried duck serves, thinking Peking Duck equivalent. It was overcooked to dryness, tough and greasy. Not good. The other dishes we had were good.
Service was average with little charm.

I came here thinking it would be nice to try a different venue for my birthday & it didn't hold up to expectations. It was totally under staffed & some of the staff didn't know what they were doing. You had to ask to get a drink, then to order food, it came out all separately & mixed up with another tables order. Sorry but I wouldn't recommend your restaurant to anyone.

We had the $45pp feed me option & were pleased with the food selection that the manager had organised for us. The service were ok but nothing outstanding. Since this was our first time at the restaurant, I had to ask different staff numerous times what we were waiting for & only to be told that the manager was putting up the menu for us. Overall we enjoyed our evening.

Good food. The restaurant was very busy so the time it took for the waiter to take our order was slow. However once our order was taken the kitchen delivered in a timely manner.

My second meal at Tai Tai. Both have been very enjoyable. On this occasion we had a pre-theatre meal (free-range Bang Bang chicken, tofu and mushrooms stirfry and xo beans and peas stir fry, with steamed rice, and a nice bottle of red wine from Orange. The food was delicious and generous in quantity and the service was pleasant, ensuring we were fed, without rushing, in time to get to QPAC. We will be back.

The food here is truly awesome although if you are going before a show get in early, as things get busy and the kitchen is not the quickest. I think though this is because they are spending time on freshly preparing your yummy food. So, give yourself plenty of time and take a coat as the restaurant is pretty ,much open to the street and can be a bit chilly. Great wine list too!

Great food, great service at a very nice price. Only downfall is the location that it might be a bit loud from revving cars, motorbikes and a fire truck. Sometimes it’s a bit hard to talk to each other.

This place is fantastic. I booked Tai Tai for an early lunch with my friend and her two kids before a show at the Convention centre. The food is amazing and the share plates are substantial. The pork bun and pork and cabbage pot stickers are an absolute must to share! The service was great - super helpful and friendly. The kids and adults at the table were very satisfied. We will definitely go back. A+

Best Chinese I have ever had. Crispy eggplant was a stand out, so was pork jowl. Can't wait to go back and try everything else on the menu. Service lovely, and made sure we had plenty of time to get to the play as well.
