I love Tai Pei! I order at least once a week and the food is always consistently fresh, hot, fast, and delicious. Their sushi is good too and their waiters are always so friendly. Nelson is my favorite- he is so nice and always knows my

My mother has been dining at Taipei for over 10 years and loves to go often. I had planned on taking her to another restaurant where I had made reservations, but Mom wanted only Taipei. Without reservations, we walked in to a packed house looking for a table for 9. \n\nWe were told it would be a 30 minute wait, but was surprised when we got seated in about 10. Dinner was exceptional! We ordered Sushi and Chinese, with the best being the Japanese Oysters and the Surf and Turf. Even though it was busy, the server was quick and polite and the service was outstanding. Everyone enjoyed the night as we had plenty of food to take home for lunch tomorrow. The manager even stopped by to make sure our meal was going well even though his leg was in a cast. He was charming and funny and entertained the kids while us adult finished our meal!\n\nThey did all the little things that you don't see anymore in restaurants and I sure am glad Mom made us go there. I am definately going to be a regular there now!

Every time I order they are really rude (which causes me to order a lot less). The food is average at best. I called the waiter a slope when he brought out the wrong soup.

A year ago, I saw a worker leaving restroom without washing hands after peeing and entering kitchen at this restaurant. I complained about this to a lady at the count. She looked very serious about this. Because of this experience and mediocre food, I have not been at this restaurant for a long time. On Christmas, there were few restaurants that opened. Tai Pei was one of them. I didn't have much choice. At this visit, I saw a sushi chef doing the same thing again - not washing hands after peeing! \n\nDisgusting. Foods are just okay but expensive for quality.

My mother ate here several years and and she raved about it. I took her there for dinner the other day. What a mistake. I ordered shrimp in a very milkd (I underlined very mild) garlic sauce. The sauce came so hot that it burnt my mouth. I told them I did nto want it and sent it back. They asked if I wanted anything else. I said no. They brought back another plate...they said it was without heat. It was the most foul tasting crap I've ever eaten in a Chinese restaurant. It was horrid. My mother did not wish to see it wasted and she took it home. She just told me that she could not eat it as it was terrible. btw - her food was so-so....not great like she remembered it. I paid $40 for two meals, one soft drink and one egg roll. The egg roll was cold inside but the soft drink was okay. My water was fine. After dropping my mother off, I went to Hing Wong's for take away in Cheswick and took it home to eat.You want good Chinese for a great price...go to Hing Wong's. Taipei just plain sucks. AND the wait staff is so over the top bothersome that you could not eat in peace if the food were edible. Good waiters are not noticed. These waiters would not leave us alone. Between some idiot filling that top ounce of water in our water glasses every time we took a drink and the rest of them walking around smiling stupidly and staring.....argh! Terrible experience. They don't even deserve one star.

The Owners came over and ask how was everything. We said everything was good as always. Then we ask them do they know Jimmy Wan. They were like who is Jimmy do we know Jimmy? I was like the owner Jimmy! Then they were like yes Jimmy he was Managing the Restaurant and had 30% shares BUT he wasn't the ONLY OWNER. The reason that he is no longer here is that he was using company check like personal check. I was like WOW everyone thought he was the only Owner here.I guess he was not the only owner then. I think you guys did a great job here. Upgrade a lot of stuff and I love your BIG screen TV's. I'll have to come in on Sundays now to watch Steeler Games. Once again Great food and friendly people down there.\r\n

A year ago, I would have given Tai Pei 5 stars but something is terribly different! My husband always orders the General Tsaos and Tai Pei made the best. Now it had a different flavor and it wasn't a good one. The bbq spareribs lacked any flavor and the egg rolls were mushy. I'm not sure if we will go back.

I went to Tai Pei last weekend. The atmosphere was nice and we were seated in a nice secluded booth in the corner. Our waiter Martin was a nice guy. My miso soup was delicious - it had onions and mushrooms added to the normal tofu, seaweed, and green onions. My mother's dish of shrimp with mixed vegetables was also great. However, I ordered the Sushi Plate and the quality slowed down. The fish, while fresh, did not taste great. It was the rice that really turned me off; it was warm and not very soft. The prices were higher than other quality sushi restaurants. While I may go back for some good Chinese, I will most likely not give the sushi a second try.

Cons: Sushi

My friends have told me that they have new sushi chef's there and should go and try it. We went there friday night with my family and they were busy. We had to wait about 10 mins for our table to be ready. We order a Sushi Boat and 3 Special Rolls(American dream Roll, Lobster Roll and Phoenix Roll). It was the best Sushi we had. We Highly recommnded everyone to go and TRY IT!!

HE SAID YES I AM POSITIVE NO SHRIMP. so i ordered a spring roll. i get my total of 26.00$!!!!! way over priced. pick up the food my roommate tried the SPRING ROLL and she says why is there shrimp in this ?????????!!!!!!!!!!!\r\n\r\ni am deathly allergic to shrimp!!!! what would have happened if i had taken a bite first?! \r\n\r\ni called them back and tried to tell them what just happened. i could not understand the woman on the phone & she could not understand me. eventually she figured out what i was saying and offered me a FREE SPRING ROLL the next time i came in. \r\n\r\nneedless to say i will never go there again. the food was terrible! the chicken was all fat and gross. \r\n\r\nit's not worth it!

Pros: there are none

Cons: everything was bad

I have lived in the Fox Chapel area for over 20 years, and was heart-broken when I heard of the ownership change for Taipei. With the departure of the owner Jimmy, there has been a steady downward spiral with regards to the food quality and overall dining experience. \r\n\r\nMy only solace is that Jimmy's new location is a quick 30 minute drive to Cranberry. It's worth every minute!

I live in Fox Chapel and have eaten here many times. The chinese is decent, but the sushi is really bad. My cousin even got sick on it once. He refuses to go back, but just tonight I ordered delivery and not only did they refuse to add a little tempura flake to my spicy tuna roll, but they refused to put a little on the side because they were ""busy and don't do that."" I have noticed how unwilling they are to try and cater to the customers wants. I even offered to pay for tempura flake with it, and they still refused.\r\n\r\nWhat's even worse, is when my order came, they got my rolls completely wrong. I called them and they said they would remove it from my bill, but they would not send out another order because ""they were too busy."" All in all, this is the ONLY sushi in the area, which is really sad because this just is not a good restaurant, but people eat it anyway because its the only option. Take the time, go into the city if you want a real sushi experience, this place is bad.

Pros: The chips that come with the chinese food..

Cons: The service, the sushi (not very fresh), and the delivery

I refuse to eat sushi anywhere else in the city. The freshest fish, and terrific chefs. The spider roll (soft shell crab) is unbelievable. The staff is friendly and willing to cater to all your requests. My first choice for all my out-of-town guests. \n\nOn the weekends, I would highly recommend a reservation.

I love chinese and sushi and in my opinion, Tai Pei is the best! Everytime I dine there, I try something new.....never had a problem. The resturant is clean, the staff is nice....you have to try it. Let me put it this way, my husband isn't a big fan of chinese cusine but he is always in the mood for Tai Pei!

If you're into sushi then you must visit TAI Pei. Their head sushi chef is extremely talented and could work at any of the best sushi bars in the the U.S.A. Beautiful fish, each piece prepared with the intensity of an artist. You'll immediately feel welcome.
