Dear Suwei11 We have been serving guests like you since 1965, and is the OLDEST top 1% TripAdvisor restaurant in Taiwan that is still operated by the original founder, Ms Umeko. We hope to see you soon. John.W

We came here because of the reviews on Google Maps and we couldn't be more positively surprised. We met the owner and she personally took care of us. It was such a lovely experience, so during my two years stay in Taipei, I will come...back over and over again. By the way, she offered us free dessert, so simple, yet very delicious!!!!More

Had my lunch here in Umeko Restaurant during my taipei trip and our family was very pleased with the food, service and ambience. Cozy restaurant in a very classic setting, a variety of taiwanese food selection, and friendly and good service staffs. All the food...we ordered was fresh and delicious. Definitely worth the visit and money! Will be back again! I'd definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who would like to try classic taiwanese cuisine in Taipei!More

Old fashioned, classic place, very welcoming ambience and lovely staff. The shrimp and crab ball in soup was wonderful, and other dishes were all very good. Not ground breaking but highly recommended.

We have been patronizing this establishment for many many years. They have very good porridge and dishes to go along. Very consistent and never fails to be the best comfort food. Always a first stop when we arrive in Taipei.
