Located about 5 minutes from the Clarks Summit exit on Route 81. It is a little tricky location on a steep hill with a bit of a hilly parking lot, but not bad if you know where it is. Planning the approach for HC access is needed but doable. The inside seems nicer than the outside with quiet tables and... More

Formosa consistently offers finest dishes at reasonable prices. Made from fresh ingredients and tastefully decorated they look and taste like $30+ dinners and they are not. Their specials are my favorites - always a pleasant surprise.

It was just luck that we found this restaurant. However, both my wife and I were glad we did and would certainly go there again when in the area. It is an Asian Fusion restaurant. The menu ranges widely including Chinese and other Asian areas. I had shrimp with coconut curry sauce and found it as good as any that... More

Liked this place very much. GF Friendly and people friendly. Very unique menu selections that mix modern cuisine with Asian spices and techniques. Will go back again.

Interesting. Seems to be well attended by the mature crowd. Had the wonton soup and the Mushroom Lemongrass soup, both were reasonably good, the Lemongrass had a nice kick (spicy). Was looking for something with Ginger in it for the main course so ordered the Ginger Shrimp and my spouse the Ginger Tilapia. The dish had a nice quantity of... More

I went here with my wife and right from the start I was turned off. We made reservations and still had to wait twenty minutes even though the restaurant was half empty. The waiter started off by reading a list of items they were out of, some of which included the reason I was there. It was getting late so... More

I have been many times and greatly enjoy the food that I have eaten here. The decor is elegant and provides a wonderful setting for a romantic date night. While service always starts a bit cold, the servers warm up during the meal. They are staunchly professional and do make excellent suggestions regarding the menu. The menu has not changed... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the seafood ravioli and salmon with crabmeat stuffing. My server Philip was excellent. Wines by the glass were limited in choices. Highly recommend.

Formosa continues to impress and serve above the quality you would expect in CS. Atmosphere is inviting and intriguing and allows for privacy. Appetizer recommendations: spring rolls are very fresh; ravioli is amazing and unexpected at an Asian restaurant; papaya salad is extremely refreshing. Chicken curry is a great entree. The owner is extremely nice and will do whatever she... More

Just had take-out food last night and, as always, the food was very fresh and good. So, I think I have now perfected my to-go order for two people. Bring this home and arrange on small plates: one Thai Salad, two orders Spring Rolls (each order contains four rolls), and one order of Pad Thai (last night we had it... More
