This place is very famous locally and fairly priced. Easily beats competition for taste and value. The broth is very very good and flavourful with beef. For me the noodles could be better but that is a matter of opinion. If it's the type of noodles you like and the broth is great then it will be one of the... More

Heard of it for so long and finally have chance to try. The beef is really nice, tender and soft, juicy and not over cooked. Just the texture of their noodles are not too good which kind of ruined the whole experience.

Very crowded. Fortunately, It was before 6 o'clock in the evening, we didn't find any difficulties sitting. Because it is well-known to travelers all over the world now, you can share your table with 3 different teams from 3 different countries (lol) Anyway, the noodle was between so-so and good. I'd rather recommend the rice in a wooden bowl(?) unless... More

The beef is 100% fat and jello. There is absolutely no lean meat. Yes I triple confirmed it. Couldn't even send it back for an exchange. You'll probably like it if u enjoy eating jello beef.

Came here after an afternoon at Chen Kai Shek. Had the beef noodle soup with a little hot sauce. Didn't wait too long on a Sunday afternoon. Maybe 10 minutes. The beef was very tender and braised perfectly. A must stop for soup.

Unexpected brunch ever. It's delicious! Highly recommend it.. You have to add the salty veg in so it taste more delicious, or not. Still delicious.

Waited 20 minutes in line while it was raining hard. Good soup with the horrible weather, soul food to my ears. Since the restaurant is full, they made us join a table with other people. I didn't mind but I know others do mind. We ordered the beef noodle soup which had a slight spice and meltingly soft beef. The... More

This is the first place after I landed in Taibei, for something to eat. It was about 3 o'clock in the afternoon, but there are still 5-6 people waiting outside for a seat. It is so popular! Most of us choose their top recommended beef noodle. The beef is super, soft and with good value, volume. The noodle is so... More
