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

I came here for the beef noodle soup. And it didn't disappoint. If you like spicy this is the place to go. While the soup was spicy and had a good kick I wasn't breathing fire and reaching for water. Highly recommend if looking for a beef noodle soup

Wait was quite quick during lunchtime. Located at a double storey building with a lot of space. The noodles are al dente and soup had a lot of depth, beef was tender and plentiful. The eggplant appetiser was delicious! Their wonton side dish was a bit meaty and dense.

I had read rave reviews for Yong Kang Beef Noodles, and so found myself waiting outside around 8.15pm one evening on my short trip to Taipei. The restaurant is in a quiet alley near Dongmen station, not on one of the main streets. The queue of about 10 people ahead of me moved very quickly and, about 10 minutes later,... More

Succulent beef noodles with dumplings! Was a complete delight. Useful tip is to wander a straight walk out of the restaurant on the same street and you will bump into a lil street vendor selling scanion pancakes with egg, basil, cheese and ham. You haveeee to try it!

These are good beef noodles, but not great. Not worth the wait or price. Plenty of equal and better bowls of beef noodles are easy to find all over Taipei. Skip the line.

I have been being their loyal customer for more than 10 years and their beef noodles tastes just as good. The steamed pork chop, Taiwanese Kim chee and pork knuckle are also the soul food for Taiwanese stomaches.

The restaurant is located near a Metro Taipei station. It seems popular with people queuing outside. It was a good lunch experience for my family.

I went with my family for lunch and had to wait in line for 45 minutes. When I finally got my bowl of beef and brisket noodle soup and tasted the broth I decided that the 45 minute waiting time to get in was well worth the wait. It was very good. The beef and brisket was very tender and... More
