The New and Improved Taikun: Reviewed

If you’re looking for the perfect place to indulge in a pan asian dinner over a glass of wine or even a cocktail, we’ve found the perfect spot for you.

Having undergone a subtle refurbishment during its temporary closure, Taikun’s layout, décor and offering has been elevated, seeing the outlet reposition itself as a dine and dance venue, with dinner shows set to launch by year-end.

Guests can now expect to enjoy vivid Pan Asian flavours accompanied by an upbeat atmosphere that transforms into a playground for the nocturnal as the night goes on.

Under the culinary direction of Lincoln Hospitality’s Group Executive Chef Brian Voelzing, the menu has been curated to showcase quality ingredients and impactful Pan Asian flavors inspired by multiple traditions. Offering a veritable feast of Asian cuisine, the menu includes an exciting variety of sushi, wok dishes, and traditional street food that are sure to entice.

Some of our favorite dishes from the review included the seafood ceviche, crispy squid and dynamite shrimp as appetizers, mix sushi platter and miso black cod as mains and chocolat fondant and Yuzu Panacota as desserts.

Designed with three experiences in mind, Taikun now houses a restaurant, high-energy lounge & bar, and al fresco terrace. On the weekly agenda, visitors can enjoy live entertainment by resident DJ on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, ladies’ night every Tuesday from 7pm, and weekend brunches. With beautiful, luscious interiors, delicious food and a fun atmosphere, Taikun is the perfect spot to enjoy a night out with friends.
