excellent food and very helpful wait staff

After passing this place like so many others we finally tried it tonight. Knowing nothing of the cuisine we enlisted the help of our two servers who were very helpful and friendly. We tried an assortment of appetizers and thought the Taiwanese sausage and Popcorn chicken were outstanding. Also... read more

Everything here is very fresh and very well prepared. Soups are enormous and very filling, entrees run the gamut from familiar to very unusual. friends who have been to Taiwan say the food here is very authentic. All I can say is that everything is delicious. Try the Szechuan flounder: incredible!

I've been to the Formosa across from Marist College a number of times on dates and with friends, in large groups and one-on-one. Regardless of the occasion or situation, I've always had a great meal at Formosa. Plenty of menu variety and generous portions. The wait can be a bit lengthy, but not significantly more than any other non-fast food... More

When Formosa was across from Marist college the food was always delicious and woke service could be slow it was something I could deal with. Since they have relocated to Main street in poughkeepsie it has been nothing but terrible. Not only has the service stayed slow at best, the food completely changed. I have gone there 3 times since... More

I know of Formosa Asian & Vegetarian Cuisine at 825 Main St.. I ate there. When I found no listing for it and only a listing for Formosa Cuisine at 10 Marist Drive, I went looking to see for myself. The location at 11 Marist Drive is hidden in a strip mall. It is on the side of the mall... More

I came here because I read the high ratings and reviews by people who have eaten here. I went twice and can honestly say it is a good place that serves Taiwanese dishes and flavors, but nothing lived up to the over-the-top raves. What concerned me most is that people said there were fresh vegetables. I found the vegetables no... More

I have passed this place many times and thought "this is a hole in a wall". Did not think it was a popular place. Then my son had said he has eaten there and said it was great. I checked Trip Advisor and people even said the food is great. So off we went. It is a small place. We... More

I was in Poughkeepsie recently - did a little research on Asian food - almost all reviewers liked Formosa. They serve real Chinese food - you'd have to go to a large city chinatown to taste this kind of cuisine. We ordered pork buns, wonton noodle soup, pork fried rice, tofu w/ eggplant,and a dish with pork, chives, black beans,... More

We have been searching for a good Chinese restaurant in the area. Saw the sign for many years and finally decided to try it. The atmosphere was lovely. The service good although most of the staff we met didn't speak English well...does that make it more authentic? The food was tasty although my one complaint was it was slightly greasy.... More
