Excellent service and dinner selection

This is a great place to go for a nice quiet dinner or for a special occasion. It would classify as Asian Fusion with traditional spices and sauces used in most meals. Appetizers are very good and the dinner portions are rather large. Decent beer and wine selection. This is the perfect place to go... read more

I was very impressed with the food, the establishment is a bit reserved for my tastes, but the staff made it comfortable. The staff puts a lot of effort to ensure you have everything you want and need.

Formosa is in the middle of a hill entering Clarks Summit, Pa. on Routes 6&11. The outside of the building is most interesting with Chinese architecture on the outside done by builders who came from China to do the work. Although specializing in Asian food they also have a full menu of steaks, seafood, chicken, etc.. You enter the building... More

Great menu with delicious Thai dishes. I love their pad thai. I have been to Thailand and still haven't found a pad thai I like better than theirs. Pad thai has lots of tofu and I always get it with shrimp and a side of their peanut thai sauce. Soups are awesome, appetizers are great; this is my favorite thai... More

We have eaten at Formosa a couple of times. We like the atmosphere and the food was good. The tuna appetizer was great.

The food had no taste and was way overpriced. It's tacky decor and a waste of money! I wish I went to Kyoto instead or McDonalds.

Wonderful evening at The Formosa. The music by Ron Leas' group was delightful, the server Brad was perfect,( he knew not to give us menus until we ordered cocktails and sipped for a time)One of the specials was seafood ravioli which is incredible, our dinners were delicious and the dessert most of us had was their home made ice cream...

Not your typical Chinese food, more upscale selections, but pricey and not too flavorful. Service though was very pleasant

Tasty Asian Fusion cuisine in a quiet and cozy atmosphere. We ordered the Chicken pad Thai and Cantonese Noodles. Both were very good. The noodles did not taste like they had been sitting out all night. Both dishes were flavorful and we are picky when it comes to our Asian dishes. The menu was extensive enough- some interesting and some... More
