Good traditional Chinese food, reasonable prices

The restaurant looks low profile, it really needs to be redecorated. But the food is really awesome. (And spicy) on top of that friendly service and a reasonable bill at the end. (If you are careful with drinking beer) So if you want to eat good traditional food, don't hesitate and in there! You... read more

Rarely do I feel snubbed at a restaurant but my husband and I definitely were at Formosa. Everything took soooo long from ordering to getting our cocktails (in fact I didn't get mine until after I had my dinner served, to getting our check. Young male waiter had a little bit of an attitude when I did ask about my... More

The food here is ok, but nothing special. The standard is more like what you'd get in a better than average all you can eat buffet. Definitely not the sort of place you'd make a special effort to go to.

The food was very good and also served a short time after ordering. Also learned about the spices used in one of the dishes. Recommended for a place to eat at a reasonable price and with food of good quality and you will not leave this place hungry.

Who knew that you could find good hot pot in Sweden? The spicy broth is super spicy, so be careful if you aren't so crazy about that!

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.
