Went after lunch hours and less crowded. Seated within 20min. Loved the beef slices and simply good. Restaurant was kind of shabby looking but compensated by food taste. Must try.

I had a small bowl of beef noodle (lean meat). The beef is definitely the star. Soft, juicy, melt in your mouth. The broth is also flavorful. Very phenomenal. The banchan were available inside a fridge in the very back of the dine-in area, and were all free. I love the Taiwanese "kimchi" (sliced cabbage) a lot! I dined with... More

Recommended to come here by a Taiwanese friend, and epic is about the best way I can describe it. The place looks pretty grimy and is far from fancy, but the beef noodle soup is off the charts. Make the mission and go try this place out!

Beef noddles is really a matter of personal preferences. This is my favorite beef noddle in town. The noddles are thick and chewy and the broth is clear, super yummy. And you must add the hot butter beef sauce on every table. it'll just turn ur beef noddles soup to another level. LOVE IT!!!!

Skip the noodles, just go for the beef. The beef is nothing but awesome. Flavorful and soft. Noodles were hard and chewy (not to my liking) soup is average. I will prefer chun shui tang beef noodles over this. The spicy sauce in pic, didn't quite go well with the soup. But the beef and tendons were the best I've... More

Ordered the beef noodles with a few sides. The beef practically melts in your mouth. Hubby had the large bowl of mix tendon n meat. It was so delicious that he had his soup refilled. Very satisfying meal.

Although it is a super local and kinda old restaurant, worn out furniture, this is a must-go beef noodle. With its satay sauce, you can simply finish all soup. I usually take the half beef and half tendon one. It opens till 4am or even "earlier". It would be a great place in WIntEr time only, as the FIRST/ original... More

Their beef noodles are delicious and the beef is incredibly tender, but it's so oily that it leaves a film of oil on your lips. I wanted to try their soup, but couldn't get over how much oil I would be ingesting. Glad I came here to try it once, but don't think I'll be coming back.

Thank Christine K
