WELCOME TO TAI TAI
The origins of South Bank’s newest Asian dining experience
are steeped rich in history, honouring traditions in Chinese
and South East Asian cuisines. Our restaurant is proudly named after the owner’s ancestral great, great grandmother who was,
as the title refers to, Tai Tai.
Traditionally, Tai Tai (太太) means the head wife of many wives of her husband. Foremost, her responsibilities in the household would be in the kitchen with many cooks. Tai Tai’s helpers would source the best local and regional ingredients. Together with Tai Tai they would work tirelessly to deliver food with sublime tastes and textures.
Tai Tai passed down her many recipes to descendants and today, we are fortunate to have inherited her love of cooking. Over time, her way of blending flavour and using food for wellbeing has been ingrained in our own cooking pursuits and we understand that Tai Tai wished for not the exclusivity of her recipes but instead for us to embrace the idea of infusing ideas.
