Dinner in may

Enjoyed this restaurant. Most dishes were excellent. The hot and sour is very sour. Recommended. Will come again.

Disgusting food. Cannot believe the previous reviews-very poor quality and a complete waste of money the food does not represent proper Chinese Food.

My wife and I organized a 9-day trip to Jordan and planned to spend 2 nights in Aqaba. A friend as passionate about gastronomy as we are, recommended us to visit Formosa if we had the chance. We arrived to Aqaba late in the afternoon and we easily identified the Formosa restaurant yet tired from the Kings Highway, we headed... More

My family of four (kids 4 y/o and 19 months) visited Formosa after my wife saw good reviews on trip advisor. We were expecting good things and they delivered. It's a small dining room, and we saw several tables were already reserved when we showed up around 5:30 pm. Thankfully, this is so early for Jordan that we had the... More

Because we had been travelling for 3 weeks by the time we arrived, we were famished for some quality Chinese food. Formosa more than lived up to our hopes. It's centrally located with friendly staff (we asked for the AC to be turned down, and it was immediately done), and the food is great and moderately priced. We ordered the... More

I had the crispy half peking duck and it was a little dry and I payed around 12/14 JD and had only the meat, anything I wanted in addition I had to order on the side and it got expensive in the end. The springrolls was tasty and so was the soya mix served with.
