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

The noodles are not over cooked and the beef is soft, tender and tasty. Not to forgot the nice gravy that goes very well with the noodles and beef!

When we got here, we were so excited because usually a line means it has to be good. We looked to see if local people were eating there. Check with a yes on both. 40 minutes later (closed to 3pm) we get seated. We ordered everything on the menu pretty much. There's only 9 items so it's not that overwhelming.... More

We've tried several well-known noodles in Taibei. Have to say this one is the best! The 5 star rating is not for it's noodles but for it's beef ! If you are a finicky eater , you probably will say the noodles itself is average which I will agree. However, no one can deny the beef is large and yummy!!!... More

Long queue, good reviews online. But honestly I was quite disappointed with the noodle's texture. The soup broth was just okay. The side dishes were also average... :(

Came here as recommended by my hotel. It was not easy to find as it's behind the Main Street and in between some small lane. I asked a few people who were kind enough to point me in the right direction. I was there at 1150 and there were already a small queue. As I was alone, they easily seated... More

Coming from the US, I have had a lot of bland beef noodle soup with chewy beef/tendon and imperfect noodles. Welcome to the antithesis of that. Tender, melt in our mouth beef and tendon with moderately spicy but intensely flavorful broth. Noodles are fresh with great texture. Line outside goes fast. Get the marinated eggplant appetizer. Great flavor & texture.
