Welcome to the Tai Wu Chinese Restaurant, a little part of The Far East just a mile south of Manchester City Centre. We have now rebranded from the Tai Pan, as hopefully with a change in name we can also prosper with a change in fortune after such a difficult year during the pandemic.
Our aim is to take you beyond the “Bamboo Curtain” on a culinary experience that will both delight and tantalise your taste buds. Tai Wu literally translated means “Great Lake”, and is one of the largest lakes in China which draws a parallel with ourselves being one of the largest Chinese restaurants in Manchester.
Tai Wu boasts a huge expanse of space, presenting a comparable eclectic choice of regional cooking styles and cuisines, we truly offer an authentic array of dishes duly confirmed by those who have visited the Far East and those visiting here from our Motherland.
On arrival there is an instant cosmopolitan Hong Kong “feel” about the decor, it’s modern with traditional influences, East meets West, which seemingly seamlessly blends into a dining area which seats up to 220 guests and a further separate dining area eagerly awaits a traditional BBQ Grill and Hot Pot due to launch late September.
The menu is as extensive as the restaurant is big with close to a hundred different dim sums (available till 6:00pm daily, a limited menu available after 6:00pm), Roast Duck, Crispy Belly Pork and Cha Siu freshly roasted daily by our Master Chef, working in perfect harmony is a kitchen team headed by our Master Chefs from Sichuan and Hong Kong to further provide authentic Sichuan and Cantonese cuisine, it’s almost as if you’ve been teleported from Manchester to the Mainland!
Dim Sum lunch is a must for anyone who’s not experienced the hustle and bustle of dining in Hong Kong or Southern China, and for those who have, a wonderful reminder of the time over there.
An occasion for Chinese families to meet up and catch up, large tables with 3 generations (sometimes 4) all dining together, creating a lively yet lovely atmosphere.
Tables full of dim sums and roast duck and stir fries all washed down with drinks and the ubiquitous Chinese tea, a choice of teas on offer (not quite all the tea in China, but still a varied selection).
