Great food, great service, great experience - we went twice on our trip! When we went we didn't have to wait at all since we were willing to share a table and there was just two of us. We sat down, they explained everything to us and we had wonderful delicious amazing food. The one thing that I will always... More

We loved the fried rice! One of the best we ever had. We also like the prawn dumplings very much. Xiao lung bao is a bit oily to our liking. We also had taro dumplings as dessert which is also very good. We felt that the price is on the high side, not just in Taiwan, but also in Asia.... More

I wish they made this kind of dumplines in NYC... This is a must go if you are in Taiwan. A lot of different types of dumplings and they all taste so good

Great food, speedy service. We were there right around closing time so the wait for a table was not long. The taro root dumplings were amazing, definitely worth a try.

The soup dumplings (xiao long bao) either pork or pork & crab are delicious in a delicate thin skin always with 8 folds. The other food offerings including other types of steamed dumplings, pork chop and beef noodle soup are also excellent. What stands out is the service. The service is efficient and solicitous and their staff speaks multiple languages,... More

You want one of the best dumpling place, this is the place you must visit. The quality is consistent in all their locations, don't know how they do it but it just taste very good. There are many small appetizer dishes that will compliment the meal. Go there during off hours otherwise be prepare to wait.

They were able to maintain their very good food. Service was also great. Place is very clean and well thought - they even provide hampers for your bags and coat covers? It is a bit expensive for the type of food and ambiance though. Still, you'll be very much satisfied with the meal.

Whilst on a conference in Taipei word-of-mouth quickly spread of an excellent dim-sum restaurant chain, described by many as "Michelin-starred". A group of us decided to try, not knowing what to expect in terms of food or price. You cannot reserve; you just turn-up at the place with the queues outside and put your name down. But the wait was... More

Excellent dim sum and the food quality is very good, but it is pretty pricy as well. The service is good, and like a big canteen.

We waited an hour to get a table. The food is wonderful as always. While the wait too many people smoked under a crowded space. For non smoker it is a torture. Will go to other branch which is located in dept store where smoking is prohibited
