so so good!

A must have while you are in Taipei, the dumplings are truly out of this world! The Taipei 101 location is right in the center of the city at the base of the Taipei 101 building, very easy to get to. There can be long lines so be prepared to walk around a bit if there is a long wait.

Excellent service, even if you do have to wait. I only waited 10mins despite the 30mins advertised wait. The staff were friendly tri-lingual and courteous. The food came reasonably promptly and was good. I might have been expecting too much, but I feel that I have had better in Japan in at least two different places. I would still recommend... More

Food were very well presented and the service were very good. A good place to dine in. We went there around 5:30pm and there wasn't any queue at all. We were guided to our table immediately.

If your new to the island and you want something Western friendly, or you just don't want to take too much of a risk, then this is the spot for you!!! Friendly service, clean environment and a tourist hub. Quite frankly this is a Chinese classic in the Chinese style and not quite a Taiwan novelty. The place is swank... More

A bit of a wait when I arrived at 8pm on a Friday evening but there were souvenir/food stuff stalls nearby to while the time away while you wait. Excellent service and food was delicious and fresh, especially the stir-fried vegetables. They even offered to serve the sweet redbean dumplings later without me asking as they suggested it's best eaten... More

Everything was tasty, and served hot. The only downside, and why I gave it a score of 4/5 is that the starters are shown in pictures and there is no description of what each item actually is. This caused some rather unfortunate ordering. Other than that, the service was great - we didn't have to wait long to be seated... More

Foods are fresher in Taipei as compared to Malaysia / Singapore. Worth visiting this in Taipei. Good service provided as well.

This restaurant is below street level in the Taipei 101 building. It’s down to the right before you enter the 101. We went with a local colleague for lunch and got there a bit before the lunch rush – which is recommended. The space is huge; the area where the dumplings are prepared is enclosed in glass, so you can... More

We waited for almost 1 hour but it worthed it. If you visit the 101 tower, you must a lunch of a dinner. Smiling and helpful staff. And watching the kitchen is a pure show. Need to come back.
