Always great! I eat here at least once a month and have never had a bad meal. Happy Family and Snow White are the best on the menu.

Typical fair, clean and friendly. Not much turn appeal but don't let that stop you. It was very quiet the night we were there, except for a table of what appeared to be family members enjoying dinner.

After checking reviews I decided to eat here. They have a fairly good size menu. All dinner items on supper are individually priced. The food is of very good quality. I enjoyed the chicken and brown sauce. The egg drop soup in not thin and watered down. I would like to try the Sunday buffet.

Visited with another couple. The food was not hot, the breaded shrimp was all breading and the breading was not cooked through. Couldn't even finish eating it. One dish was sent back to be reheated and it never reappeared until we finally asked where it was. Service was poor as well.

Tao Pan is very nice restaurant out by the lake. It has food like no other and offers a wonderful variety of foods and soups and appetizers to choose from. The Chicken Egg Foo Young is the best I have ever had and one of my go to meals. Spring Rolls are so delicious and the Sizzling Rice Soup is... More

The lunch buffet on Sunday is always busy, but the food is fantastic. The owners are always polite, friendly and quick. The service is excellent. We have been here several times and have never been disappointed.

This family owned restaurant serves the yummiest duck I have eaten so far. The owner -hosts are friendly and hands-on. The place has a charm all its own. It is worth a visit if you are in the neighborhood and definitely worth visiting more often if you live in Springfield, Illinois.

Decided to try the Sunday lunch buffet, which does come with a bowl of soup. I tried the wonton soup, which was good. The buffet was small, but still had a good variety. (Some Chinese buffets are way too big). Egg rolls are large. Donuts for dessert were tasty. Fried rice was brown (instead of yellow), and not greasy at... More
