A great Chinese restaurant that's long stood the test of time, despite all sorts of new yuppy-style competition having sprung up nearby. Quiet ambience, attentive service, personal touch and really nice food. I'd recommend Tai Ping every time ahead of the clatter of what's nearby.

I love this place! After to a few friends, I decided to follow their advice and went to get some takeaway recently. A very friendly welcome and chat to the lady behind the counter, it felt like I was talking to an old friend. As a vegetarian, I appreciate the variety and look forward to working my way through the... More

Shocking service. Bad attitude when confronted. All of a sudden, nobody knows... I placed an order at 1900. Was told twenty minutes. Arrived at 1930. Waited until 2010. No apology. Will never in back.

Visited Tai Ping with a friend for dinner. Found the service very friendly and the ambiance was very peaceful. On top of all this the food was mouthwatering. It is a 34 year old Chinese restaurant and they have the same chef for over 30 years. Their menu hasn't changed for more than a decade now. This actually is quite... More

We have been to Tai Ping a number of times and regularly get takeaways from them too. Excellent takeaway service. Typical Chinese restaurant lighting and decor. I have generally avoided Chinese food thinking it very fried and oily. Tai Pings has totally convinced me otherwise. I love the hot and spicy chicken as well as the sweet and sour pork.... More

With some trepidation we entered the restaurant. It was fairly busy but nothing suggested it would offer up culinary masterpieces and, to be fair, it didn't. What it did do was offer good food, served efficiently at reasonable prices. If you have a hankering for Chinese and are in the area - pop in. You may not walk away with... More

This is my first review ever , prompted by the fact that my husband and I have never had such a dreadful Chinese meal as we did this evening. We regularly eat Chinese meals and have done so in back street establishments,and up market restaurants in China, Hong Kong and many other countries but mainly in the UK. We ordered... More

From the booking till after paying the bill, the service, food and atmosphere was more than expected. The owner's visit to our table was genuine and tells me that they take much care.
