My family and I have been coming here since I was a young child. 25+ years later I am still frequenting Taiwan and absolutely love the food. You will not regret eating here!

This restaurant overall is excellent. We loved the service as well as the food. We tried their chow mein and mu shu chicken. Both were excellent and we would definately try new dishes next time. It was packed and there were people waiting, so that's a great sign of a good restaurant.

Been going to this place for the last 20 years. The good news is they have not waivered on food quality or portion size. Service was good and the meal reasonably priced. We'll be back.

The management is very evident as they keep an eye on everything that happens here. A welcome change from restaurants where you feel ignored and forgotten about. The ambiance is warm and attractive,... More

We were in the neighborhood and decided to try the Taiwan restaurant. Service was very friendly and the food was really good. Great potstickers, fried rice, and other dishes. Prices were reasonable. Overall a very good experience and we will definitely come back.

Food is good but a little pricey. Been there 3 or 4 times and have always left full. The staff is pleasant and the food gets out in a timely manner.
