Less greasy than thier local competitors, more of a Cantonese style. They seem to have a fair number of natives eating in the place, so I suspect if you ask, they probably have authentic dishes too

By far the best Chinese food in the area. Everything we have had from here has been very good; most have been excellent. The mini juicy pork buns are a favorite. They happily adjust the level of spiciness up or down as requested. My only complaint: few tables inside. Really a takeout place.

Authentic Taiwan cuisine. The squid nugget soup (a special) is one of the best dishes I have ever had. All of the dumplings and noodle soups are excellent and cheap.

The food here is excellent and its Taiwanese food compares well to food I had in Taiwan, which is a huge plus, and different from many other Asian eateries in the area. I've gotten take-out from here a number of times, and always been satisfied with what I get. It is very reasonably priced too, and the food is usually... More

Good Chinese dinner The food was good to great. The wings were huge meaty and spiced very well. We are trying to hot ones the next time we order. The General Tzsao's was spicy and not overly breaded. The vegetable Pad Thai was good, Dumplings and spring rolls were average. The delivery was great. Less then in hour during snowstorm... More

Although this is a take out restaurant, they do have a few tables and chairs for those who like to eat in. We chose to eat in and the lady behind the counter was helpful in answering our questions about the menu. We ordered a few items and I felt that the service was good. The food was pretty good...

Was staying overnight in Lexington on business and was looking for inexpensive, fresh, take out food. This place fit the bill perfectly. The owners are friendly and prompt. I ended up eating in, since they do have seating for about 16.

The noodles are lovely. Really, you must try them. Not really meant for eating in although you can. it's more of a take out place. The staff is very friendly.

Formosa Taipei is a small take out restaurant in Lexington right outside of Waltham and not to far from Lexington Center. The food is excellant. We love the Lamb in Two Ways and the Mango Chicken. There are a few tables, if you want to stay for your meal. Everyone is always friendly and helpful. In addition to the 'Chinese... More
