Amazing pad thai! Great restaurant, great service, great owners

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... read 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

Very good asian fusion restaurant. The honey duck is superb. Rack of lamb, when available, is definitely worth getting.

The atmosphere is pretty nice to bad the food didn't hold up to my initial expectations. I had the Tilapia in a ginger sauce. First off I had to ask for it to not be breaded no biggie, when it arrived on my table the presentation was okay and the fish was cooked properly but the veggies were over cooked... More

I've had various preparations of the salmon, all delicious. Prices are a little high, but the food is excellent.

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
