This one has a good selection of Asian food, hard to pinpoint to Chinese. The staff was effective and polite and with a lot of Asian customers we assumed it to be good. And it was, big portions with good prices just what we needed for a late lunch. The location is a small block away from the buzzing main... More

Very nice food, good service and reasonable price level. Too many asian restaurants adapts their dishes to a spice level ment for non-asians, but Formosa is an exception. Recommended if you like genuine asian food.

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 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 will be surprised.

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!
