The formal Taipan is one of the finest Chinese restaurants in Delhi. The food is authentic, luscious, and artfully presented, and the view from the top of the Oberoi—over the Delhi Golf Course toward the high-rise buildings of Connaught Place—is grand. The menu highlights Cantonese and Szechuan cooking, including salt-and-pepper prawns, minced prawns with asparagus, Calcutta beckti fish in a nonya (spicy lemon) chili sauce, and various duck dishes. The best-loved
house specialty is dim sum, available in a daily fixed-price lunch—reserve in advance for this feast.
