“A place to avoid”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I wanted to find a place that serves pizza in Hualien, and found mention of this restaurant. Going there was a big mistake, the 'pizza' does not deserve that name, just a thin bit of undercooked pastry loaded with processed cheese. Really bad. My wife ordered the 'paella', which might have been ok if the cook had not added loads of sugar to it! In addition, service was slow, and the food is overpriced. In short, a place to avoid. I'll stick to "Country Mother's" next time I have a craving for western food in Hualien.

“Honest food but slow service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Milawa seems to have few English speaking customers. There is an English menu but it seemed less comprehensive than the Chinese one. Our waitress spoke little English and we got different dishes from what we ordered (from the English menu) The food came very very slowly, but the ingredients were clearly fresh and the dishes were tasty in a good home cooked style. Probably not worth the effort of traveling to Milawa unless you are desperate for some non Chinese food
