Just OK 4/10
We cannot agree that this is exceptional food and atmosphere, worth the journey as the 10/10 review states - it must be a different restaurant!or someone who is very easily pleased! As Chinese food lovers but not local, we went here for one of our evening holiday meals - frankly we wish we hadn't bothered -downmarket atmosphere with paper tablecloths over linen stained tablecloths gave the feeling of a sandwich snack cafe you would grab a bite to eat at on the road, the waitress gave the impression she was doing you a favour! The dishes were
bland and without much flavour, sparkling drink flat, soup colourless and like water. As Chinese food being a favourite choice we have eaten in dozens of Chinese restaurants both here and abroad, we have had worse meals but this was by no means one of the best. Frankly you would be better to have a meal at the many excellent Cornish pubs and restaurants and save the Chinese meal until you can visit your favourite local. If you are local to the area and this is the best Chinese food on offer, I would be very dissapointed if I was you and had no other choice. We did not go on an eat as much like night but paid full price for what was a very ordinary downmarket dining experience and not one I would repeat or recommend to others unless this is the only restaurant open late and you have no choice but must have a meal!The prices were what I would expect of a good quality Chinese restaurant with a nice ambience (much as described on the Taipan's website - again describing a different restaurant as far as we are concerned and experienced) Sorry not at all impressed!! - 4/10 can do better.

Good food ?service
  6 / 10
We went to the Taipan on a Wednesday for the All you can eat offer.It was a busy night all tables were fully booked. We were unsure about how the all you can eat would work but were reassured by the first waitress we met. We had a moderately long wait for our starters and intermediate course, in fact our meal was served to the party on the next table. As it is a small town we knew the people and a degree of banter was exchanged.
Another waitress then came to take our main meal order, bearing in mind it was all you can eat we made our order to be told that as we had ordered a large number of dishes we would be charged in full if we didn't complete the meal. This comment did put a shadow over what would have been very pleasant meal.
On the way out of the restaurant I checked to see if there was any mention of this on the notice of all you can eat advertisement. There was not and incidentally we did copmplete all of our courses.
