Haven't been to this restaurant in 20 years. I was sad to see the transfer of license but asked the waitress and she said the son is buying it....I hope he learned his lessons from his dad as I look forward to coming back again....sooner than 20 years. My date had some dietary issues, but the patient, accommodating waitress/chef did... More

My favorite Chinese restaurant anywhere - what a delight - always look forward to dining here. The food is wonderful, the staff always cordial and the atmosphere lovely. The honey walnut scallops are my favorites - yum - and the presentation is great along with good portions.

We just came back from another excellent dinner at our favorite Chinese restaurant. We were seated promptly, the service was very friendly and the food delicious. The portion size is quite generous so we had lots of left over to takehome.

This is our favorite place to go for Chinese. Whether we dine in or take out it is always delicious and the service is outstanding. We have been going here for years. I recently went on my birthday last month and was given the best "birthday cake". Fried banana tempura with fruit and chocolate syrup, yum! The honey walnut prawns... More

We really enjoyed our dinner there. A large selection of delicious Chinese dishes with very nice presentation. Dish sizes are good for sharing. We had some shrimp dishes and they were very delicious with plenty of shrimps to our full satisfaction. I highly recommend the Taiwan Spicy Eggplant with Chicken, Prawns and Scallops. We ordered the green tea ice cream... More

My mother's birthday: we arrived at 1130 when the Taiwan Restaurant opened and were promptly seated. Water and tea were delivered, and after perusing the menu we ordered. The waitress was charming--our food arrived within 10-12 minutes. The lunch menu was varied with enough choices to please the carnivores and herbivores in the group [this included the vegetarians!]. The choices... More

This is one of our favorite places. We've brought our in-laws and other family members here when we used to live in Willow Glen and everyone only had great things to say about Taiwan. Chow fun with beef in black bean sauce, twice-cooked pork and Taiwan crispy beef or chicken never fail to amaze us, among many others. More power... More

Best time to get there is early lunch and early dinner......very very busy I have enjoyed everything I ever ordered.....love the whole fish, pinapple rice, soup, chicken salad, beef and brocolli, sweet walnuts. Everything is tasty......and the fresh flowers and decor an great....little tight on seating.

I was treated to lunch here last Friday (the 20th). The menu left nothing to be desired, and the food was as good a Chinese meal I've ever had.
