Long established Chinese restaurant in the heart of New Eltham 

The Tai Pan has been serving delicious and freshly cooked Chinese food to locals for over 30 years. Many of the chefs have over 20 years experience and the head chef trained in bustling China Town in London before joining the team.

Spread over two floors, the restaurant is fully licensed and diners can choose from the extensive a la carte menu, set menu or on Sundays from the popular lunch buffet menu. 

For the customers that fancy a night in, the Tai Pan also caters for collection takeaways via phone orders or in person. As if the fantastic food wasn't enough, you will also receive complimentary prawn crackers or a bottle of Tsingtao chinese beer (minimum spend applies).
