Traveling with Chinese friends with increasing homesickness for familiar cuisine, we stumbled upon this unpretentious little gem of a restaurant in the middle of Stockholm's most scenic area. Apparently in operation since 1968, the place made everyone very happy, and I can personally attest to the genuine character of the food; it is real Chinese food, as you'd find in... More

Once I had arrived and checked in - it being the unearthly hour of 2200 - most of the restaurants in the old part of Stockholm decided to close for the evening - leaving me "The weary travelling" unable to find a place to eat. On my way to my hotel - I found the Formosa. I was given a... More

Super Good Hot Pot and a very service minded staff makes this place a must! For just 180 sek you will get served delicious home cooked food. You will love it! Doesnt look much from the outside but quite nicely decorated.

We have been traveling to different cities in Sweden for the past few days. Being Chinese, I was so happy to eat some real Chinese vegetables! Food was good and authentic. Service was friendly. And price was quite reasonable!

We arrived close to closing time but the waitress was welcoming and friendly. The food was really very good, spring rolls and dumplings for entree and then the yummiest seafood clay pot I have ever had. Husband enjoyed his pork belly too. A very nice casual dining restaurant with excellent and friendly service. Thank you team at Formosa.

...then it is excellent. Actually I was there with Chinese business partners and they were happy. Only downturn was available space but we were quite a large group. Why not rating five? Simple answer, I am a spoiled old China hand and quite picky on the matter of Chinese food.

Formosa is very well located - in the heart of Old City, where tourists walk back and forth. The restaurant is clean, has good view, has nice outdoor seating, and the waitresses are really nice. But unfortunately, the food is not up to par with neither of the above. It has, at best, the same quality as Chinese fast food... More

The mene has a good variety, ranging from Thai to Chinese dishes, service is good although they have very minimal staff to serve and take orders, I assume this is a family run restaurant ? All the dishes we ordered were good, and reasonable priced by Swedish standard. Location is excellent as it is very much situated to the entry... More

Dropped in for dinner on a Sunday night. No reservations needed. Cost was 380 kr for 1 appetizer and 2 entrees, which was the cheapest we've had for dinner in Stockholm. Food was good, hot and spicy. I had the shrimp with garlic and kung po and my husband had peking duck. Our pork dumpling appetizers were just okay. The... More

We don't have very many Chinese restaurants in Budapest, so this was a wonderful find. The food was outstanding and the service excellent. Prices were a bit high for Chinese food, but still well worth it, if only for their delightful potstickers (fried dumplings).
