Tasty but a bit pricey

If you just have to eat it once as a tourist, try the spicy version. It's good but given the price, there's other yummy food to explore in Taipei

This is famous for a good reason -- it does beef noodle supremely well. The mean is tender and cooked just right. The flavor is strong and tasty, and it doesn't leave you with dry mouth. The noodles has just the right amount of "q". This is a classic. Service is efficient and the decor is old school casual. It's... More

Don't take the large ($230) beef soup; the bowl is bigger but it looks like they put the same amount of soup/noodles/beef as in the small one ($200). Also, it was good but not as good as I would have expected for that price range.

There are two sizes of bowl, big and small. Small ones cost 200 and big 230. When we went there, there was a long queue of ppl but it was not too long until we got our table. The noodle is okay, its not too soft which i like and the broth taste is simple. The beef is good, its... More

We were passing through Taipei after a trip to Wulai back to HK and wanted to get some beef noodles around Yong Kang Street. It was 430pm and the Lao Chang noodle shop was closed. Yong Kang just opened so we decided to try it. The soup base was pretty bland, the meat was soft. They had run out of... More

Not to say that it's not tasty, but we expected more with all the hype. Too expensive for the quality of the food. We're not so enthusiastic about the experience and may not be back a second time. There was a queue in front of the restaurant on Saturday lunch time, but not too long (we're the fourth in line... More

Be prepared to wait in line as there is always a long queue. The beef noodles is very tasty and the best I have eaten so far.

A very popular place. Efficient and friendly service. Tasty beef noodles that can only be topped by a few in Taipei (e.g. 老熊牛肉麺). Unfortunately, it is rather overprices, but being that popular - who can really blame them? Highly recommended...

What cay I say? I wish this place was in Sydney where I live so that I could eat there every week. I went there twice on a recent trip to Taipei and was so impressed with all of the food. It was fast and authentic and had great flavours. Highly recommend the beef noodle soup (of course) and the... More
