I went to this restaurant with my wife for lunch. We ordered 4 dishes: 2 kinds of xiao long pao, a beef noodle soup and another soup. At first glance, the restaurant looked nice but we were a bit disappointed as the service was poor and the dishes were oversized. I did not find the quality very impressive. Overall we... More

The xiao long bao is even nicer than Ding Tai Fung. The food is really tasty, and the price is not expensive. Will come back for more!

Really enjoyed dinner - good range of food, all of which was very good. Service was reasonable, and although it is not cheap by local standards, it was worth the cost for me. Well worth trying

Unfortunately we didn't ask the weight of the crab- well the picture looked like a big... More

This is a chain store which owned by listed food company. Branch stores are by Metro or at easily accessible locations. Food quality are well managed by team work with service a bit not compatialbe with its food quality and pricing. If you go here for Xiaolongbao(steamed pork bun), you may try another economical store "小上海" at No.62, Section 4... More

Tried it today while we were near Taipei station. About 8mins walk. Best to go from ground instead of walking over by underground. Cos you will end up walking up tons of steep stairs at exit Z10. Food was freshly made. A lunch set for two has lots of food price tag of 1980NT. Ordered a few other items. All... More

Service & Food were ordinary. Only the custard buns and xiao long bun were of comparable standards with Din Tai Fung. Other than that, nothing on the menu was a must to die for. Prices were alittle too high for their ordinary food. It's focus are on Korean and Japanese tourists. If you are chinese by race, you will be... More

majority is tourist who came to dine in. food quality is good. service is good. but for me I feel it's overpriced. shrimp fried rice cost NTD 280 majority dishes around 300-1000 NTD. ambience of the restaurant is oriental if you're looking for quality fine Chinese cuisine. then it's recommended.

Thank Hendry T
