Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I have been going here for many years. Usually for birthdays or special occasions. To me it’s the best restaurant in hualien. The meat is always great quality. Consistently have great service. Wagyu beef is always as advertised. Use of charcoal for bbq instead of...gas makes it that much better. Highly recommended. Be sure to make a reservation because it’s usually busy.More

Highly recommend! Excellent food, super nice staff, squeezed us in on a busy night. We had the set menu plus extras. Great value. Something for everyone. P.S. The rice is out of this world.

We had great time and tasty food in this restaurant. Service was very good! I recommend a formula where you can take one of the suggested menus because you can try several different things in smaller amounts.

Really nice atmosphere with set menus really worth the price. The place is on the nice street with good atmosphere, after the restaurant you can have a walk you could see some singers perform.

A little expensive but good quality for a small city. Lovely cuts of beef and prawn. Make sure you get some veggies too!

Took the family here at the last minute during our two night stay in Hualien. What a fantastic place - great English speaking staff, great atmosphere, reasonable pricing and very fresh food. I’d highly recommend it. The kids also loved they could cook the food....We are definitely going back there again!More

We arrived at 7. 15pm on a Sat night with no booking and were told we could have a table at 8pm - and this place is worth the wait. We had the NT1600 set menu for two and left stuffed to the gills. Really...top quality pork, beef (3 cuts), chicken, assorted seafood, and side dishes. Beer was ice cold (finally! Someone understands!) and they make a good strawberry daiquiri slushy. A buzzy atmosphere and great service make this restaurant a definite 5 star dinner spot.More

Came here for late night drinks and snacks twice. Always packed, which is a good sign. They have a great drink list...great sake, which I enjoyed with the BBQ. Super friendly and helpful staff...they all spoke English, which is amazing! The owner, Perry, took the...time to introduce himself and recommend some items, which was so kind of him. The portion sizes and prices were great. Easy to eat a little or a lot here. The atmosphere was festive and I walked out smiling. Thanks! Easy to spend a little or a lot here....all depends on your taste and what you want. Worth a visit!More

This us a great place to eat delicious bbq meat in a relaxed setting. We chose some bacon, beef rib, a range of vegetables and rice. We tgen wrapped these in the lettuce leaves provided and dipped in the yummy sweet soy sauce. The mojito...cocktail I had was good too! The menu is in English and staff are able to understand. A tad on tge pricey side, of course it depends on your choice cut of meat. A nice, romantic place to eat.More
