On a cold winters night with no electricity at home due to storm went for quick meal. While service etc was fine the food was very bland. Both my wife and my choice had no chinese taste and was very disappointing

The food is OK and the choices are good. There are set menu choices as well as individual dish choices. Service was very slow both of the last two times we went.

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.
