(TERMS & CONDITIONS) FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS TAIAN TABLE AND WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

Taian Table is an intimate dining venue offering a multi-course tasting menu. An evening at Taian Table is much like attending a private dinner party at a friend’s home – that is, if your friend happened to be a fine-dining chef!

Like most dinner parties, the kitchen takes center stage, being where the action happens. Diners are seated around the open kitchen like spectators in the arena and are encouraged to interact with chefs and staff as they personally introduce each dish to guests. Be it the chef founder, chef de cuisine or sommelier, guests are welcome to ask about the dishes, wine pairing, and the story behind Taian Table.

The kitchen counter seats up to 18 guests. Additionally, we have two booths that seat two guests each.

WHERE IS TAIAN TABLE LOCATED?

Our restaurant is located inside the Garden Hotel. We are on the second-floor mezzanine level on the right side after you enter the hotel lobby. The easiest access is over the staircase on the right side of the lobby.
