This outlet has a large selection of imported products which are not normally found in the local Supermarkets. Talk to the counter if you wanted something and it is not on the shelf, they will bring it for you in your next visit.

One of the earlier small size supermarkets to offer mostly imported food items and bathroom and kitchen amenities...the selction is good but due to size restriction, the range of items on offer are rather limited to the main stream.

Tasty Life is great for western shopping if you are in the area and have deep pockets or your company is paying for your upkeep. It is certainly a bit on the pricy-side for many items but not much more so than Metro and a bit more convenient. For Western essentials it's great, they have a wide variety of staples... More

Tasty Life is a lifeline when you want that something you can only get in the U.S. (or Europe or Australia or New Zealand and other countries around the world). Has a good variety, most of the time, of canned goods, frozen foods, vegetables, fruits, snacks and sundries, milk, yogurt, cleaning supplies, etc. I like the U.S. and Australian/New Zealand...

Tasty life , is a supermarket , not a hotel , it provides a wide selection of foreign foods for the expats in Xiamen. Good clean setup , friendly staff and Sushi that is amazing . The prices are a tad high and it would help if staff can speak a bit more English. over all , very good .

One of the fist mini-markets in the Bin Bei area of Xiamen. Excellent beer selection and a keen eye for some great products that you simply cant get anywhere else.

always good for a British/Canadian expat to find something like this where you can find some familiar home-grown brands. a bit pricey, but hey you're far away from home and it costs to get these things here. I like the assortment of vegetables and meats, which are usually quite good. the home brands are mostly there and welcome little oasis... More

After almost 4 years in Xiamen, we can say that Tasty Life is the best thing that happen here. It's expensive but totally worth it.

We come here on a regular basis since the shop opened. You will find most of the usual or common groceries available in the USA, Japan, Germany and, some other european countries. Theres a decent selection of quality beers and wines available too. Although most of the groceries and foodstuffs are a bit on the expensive side but, with being... More
