Take it from a Brooklyn, N.Y. long time chowhound, Tai Pan is excellent. Recommended by a CH'er from Oahu now relocated to NYC (I'm sure this board misses Kathy), we owe her big time for this. The food is fresh and varied, the owner very helpful and friendly & the price very reasonable. Located inside the Cultural Center at 100 Beretania (#167), this is a very nice dim sum destination place. Check out the offerings against the side wall (next to the dessert showcase) & order by sight, supplementing with the printed menu on the table. We have another week here... maybe we'll go back.
