Taste was one of three local restaurants recommended by the reception staff at the Double Happiness Courtyard Hotel which is further down Dongsi Si Tiao. Their suggestions were good but quite different from one another - this was definitely the quiet option. It's a small place and we were virtually the only customers. The location, just a bit down the... More

The food at this restaurant was delicious. We had vegetable spring rolls, sweet & sour prawns, spicy tilapia fish (my favourite) and rice cooked in bamboo, the drinks were lemonade and draft tsingtao, we finished off the meal with goats cheese fried dessert which was very nice. Ms.Deng was so friendly and made the meal even more pleasurable with her... More

I wouldn't wish for my worst enemy to eat at this restaurant. To say that the food was bad is a huge understatement. The food nauseated us so much that we barely were able to eat half of it. Service was slow, and the food took forever to come out. Prices were sky high for what you get. Spring rolls... More

Absolutely loved this restaurant when visited in June 2012. Enjoyed three fabulous meals here, tiny restaurant was packed every day, servers were engaged and attentive, and male chef was delighted that we loved his food. Such a disappointing contrast on our visit this week. Restaurant was empty, while others along the same alleyway were crowded. Waitress sat us down with... More

Overall very average, ordered food then watched them go and buy chicken for dish, ordered 2 drinks they were warm, I don't expect to get a warm beer, I ordered ginger ale and got tonic water. Got our main dishes but had to ask for the rice after a lengthy wait. Value for money there are much better places I... More

My 5 kids and I went to Taste because we were staying at the Double Happiness hotel and it was closely. The food was very good and the prices were great. There were many things on the menu that they were out of but as long as you are flexible, you will definitely enjoy your meal.

My first try in this particular cuisine. I can't really remember what we have eaten and is because my sister did the ordering overall. Yunnan cuisine uses chilli in their dishes which makes it better for me. Overall experience was great. Will definitely be back.

We were staying at the Double Happiness Hotel and read about Taste on TripAdvisor. As mentioned, it is on the same alley as the Double Happiness but only about 50m in from the busy Dongsi Street. It is a very small restaurant, only 3 tables and seating for 10. During our stay in March, we never saw more than one... More

Outstanding food, friendly owner, and a cute decor in this little place. Feature some really unique cuisine from my favorite part of China. Better than a large chain like Lost Heaven, but not quite as good as some of the little hole in the wall places I've been to.
