The line looked long but it moved quite quickly. The staff was helpful with our questions. The food arrived quickly and it was delicious! Even the clear broth was deep and tasty! Of course the Taiwanese beef noodles is a must when you come here!

Over hyped by bloggers and blind followers without the sense of taste, this place might be making excellent food many years ago which earned them the fame. I have been there twice and both time I regretted my choice. A commune style eating hall crowded with tourists, your suffering is exchanged with super salty gamy broth with mediocre braised beef....

Everyone has different opinion of what the best Taiwanese beef noodle should taste but I think this is the benchmark. Flavorful and tender beef with al dente noodles and plenty of side dishes to choose from definitely worth the wait.

Sure, there are long lines out the door, but they're doomed for disappointment. Costing considerably more than less famous beef noodle restaurants, the beef noodle dishes at Yong Kang are no better, and are in fact somewhat less delicious.

We went there to try the famous beef noodle soup and we have to agree that the soup and the place deserve its fame. It is true that compared to other similar places it is a bit more pricy but the quality has also its price. The meat was tender and very well cooked, really mouth-watering. Very good and highly...

We sought this place out because we'd read that it's on the short list for best beef noodles in Taiwan. We don't know much about that dish in general, but the version we ate here was irresistible. The meat was falling apart, the broth delicious. My husband got the spicy version and liked it better than my milder one, and... More

Finally got to try the "famous" Taiwanese beef noodles at this specific place. Beef was so tender, love the texture of the noodles not too hard nor soft and the broth was full of flavour but not too rich. Now I see why it is so popular definitely worth a try and worth a wait as the queue can be... More

Long queue and busy but still get seated within 10 mins. Signature beef noodles are great. The beef falls apart in your mouth without being dry. Noodles bathed in the beef soup is just right. Must also finish the soup. Cold sides are very tasty and good good value. Don't hold back on these plates of taste. Worth making a... More

the beef, the tendon and the noodle are cooked just right. not too soft not too hard. the soup is not super spicy yet the kick is there. we had the steamed intestine too that is really good. environment wise it is airconed, a little bit cramped though. price to value is above medium.
