What more can you expect from a restaurant? We went to island hopping in remote areas of the Philippines. So coming back to Manila and eat tasty Taiwanese food was a real treat. We went twice in a week. Seafood seems speciality of this restaurant( various kinds of clams, shrimps are recommend).However , Beijing duck was good. Feet of chickens,in... More

Went there with my wife for dim sum as we were staying at a nearby major world-class hotel. The food and service did not disappoint...and price was quite reasonable. Even had some items that are no longer available at North American dim sum houses. Would recommend this to anyone in need of good dim sum.

The restaurant looks a bit strange from the outside but once you come inside it is ok. Plenty of staff and not long waiting time. Plenty of good food.

Since we now live in Paranaque, it is seldom we go to Malate. Now we frequent Tao Yuan in RWM and for dinner sometimes you have to wait in line due to many customers. Very good food, and responsive waiters, clean place and wash room.

One family favourite for sure, been dining at this place for numerous time, always good food always consistent! The service is attentive and typical for a Chinese restaurant with the old guard watching the young! Great for lunch to late night meals as place is open beyond most restaurant operation hours! Save parking available right next door, which is huge... More

This Chinese restaurant specialises in seafood, they have loads of tanks full of fish, crabs etc and almost every dish on the menu is a fish dish. We had an amazing lunch here with loads of different dishes going round on our tabletop turntable. Bibs are a must for dealing with the lovely crab in various sauces ...
