The celebration got off with a bang (literally) at Tai
Pan. The dragon dancers weaved their way throughout the restaurant, which was packed with hundreds of supporters to Chef and owner Peter Luu. The buffet style dinner featured dozens of including shrimp wontons, dim sum, stir fried vegetables, sweet and sour soup, and more.

The large space on Macleod trail is inviting, spacious and the open kitchen really adds to the feel of the space (you can catch a peek on your steamed pork buns right in front of your eyes).

We wish Chef Peter all the best in his newest venture.

ps- Don't forget to try their signature Peking duck and lobster fried rice!

Location: #100 9737 Macleod Trail SW
