We love Formosa. Even though on a well traveled road it seems like it is still a hidden gem. The food is as good as you'll get in the area. The service is always friendly and the atmosphere is beautiful. They even make their own ice cream!

Good food at a reasonable price. The place was a little quiet but I think it was because we ate rather early. We had a very good waiter and the pace of the meal was perfect. Many choices on the menu. The bar had quite a bit of people at it too.

The staff are friendly and attentive, but not overbearing. Excellent martini and wine lists. We have eaten here twice and the food has been very good both times. My wife really enjoys the honey duck. My only negative observation is the furniture is somewhat dated and worn, and the restaurant needs a thorough cleaning. ( dust and cobwebs on the... More

We go here on occasion and really love the food and atmosphere. The place is consistent and provides a very high quality food and service level. The dishes are a range of Thai to americanized dishes that are very tasty. The servers are very good at the pace of the meal not too slow not too fast. So I have... More

I was very impressed with the food, the establishment is a bit reserved for my tastes, but the staff made it comfortable. The staff puts a lot of effort to ensure you have everything you want and need.

Formosa is in the middle of a hill entering Clarks Summit, Pa. on Routes 6&11. The outside of the building is most interesting with Chinese architecture on the outside done by builders who came from China to do the work. Although specializing in Asian food they also have a full menu of steaks, seafood, chicken, etc.. You enter the building... More

This is a great place to go for a nice quiet dinner or for a special occasion. It would classify as Asian Fusion with traditional spices and sauces used in most meals. Appetizers are very good and the dinner portions are rather large. Decent beer and wine selection. This is the perfect place to go if you are look into... More

Great menu with delicious Thai dishes. I love their pad thai. I have been to Thailand and still haven't found a pad thai I like better than theirs. Pad thai has lots of tofu and I always get it with shrimp and a side of their peanut thai sauce. Soups are awesome, appetizers are great; this is my favorite thai... More
