Approved by an Asian, for an Asian (or anyone else!)

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... read more

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

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

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
