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

What a great little takeout place. We ordered 6 different meals and each was very well done. The dumplings were delicious. No real place to eat in - but take out quality was very good.

I love this place. I have tried almost everything on their menu. My personal favorites are: The mushroom hot pot, a big bowl of mushroom soup featuring 4 or 5 different types of mushrooms in a delicious mushroom broth. The soup has these wonderful thin noodle bundles that are tied into a knot that provides a range of textures. I... More
