It was my first visit to any Bulgarian restaurant ever as i love Indian food most for heavy spices flavor & tongue biting chilies but this restaurant was worth a try & food was exceptional. The Owner/ chef and the service people were helpful too to choose the best dishes for your appetite.

We dined here with my gf for our first year anniversary and it was a wonderful experience. The restaurant is very charming and food is lovely. Chef is extremely friendly, he will always ask for customers' feedback and enjoys chatting. Strongly recommended for anyone that wants to spend a quiet evening tasting good Bulgarian wine and cuisine.

The J.W. Teres is an absolute gem of a restaurant tucked into an unassuming alley in Taipei. Krastyu, the owner and chef, is exceptionally accommodating when you make your reservation (as is required) and he will put together an outstanding assortment of authentic Bulgarian dishes depending on your preferences. With no set menu, he will give you options from that... More

Having grown up in Eastern Europe and traveled extensively, this was surprisingly my first taste of Bulgarian cuisine. Intimate, atmospheric setting with impeccable personalized service, the chef -cum-owner will cater the meal to your tastes and based on the freshest produce he has available. Starter with zucchini, dill, garlic and yoghurt hit the spot, and for mains the rack of... More

Well It deserved to be at the best second spot and also good enough to try Bulgarian food (probably the best Bulgarian fresh food in Taiwan) You can ask the chef to prepare as per your like and they would serve you your choice on the plate!
