We have eaten here many times and always enjoyed their authentic and tasty Taiwanese cooking. This time we had Taiwanese rice pudding (sticky rice), garlic chicken wings, crispy fried pork intestines, hot and sour dumplings and baked rice with chicken cutlet. All delicious! Good service...as usual.More

On our way from nyc to Vermont, stopped by albany and were hungry. As 2nd & 3rd gen mostly taiwanese fam, we thought this place excellent. Hubs had the popular stewed beef chuck noodle soup (aka. beef noodle soup & Gu ba mi) believed it...to be authentic & so delicious. Son chowed down the soy egg w minced pork over rice. And I loved the spicy wonton - just the right spice with great flavor. The wonton skins were deliciously delicate. We'd come again! And they would do very well in nyc - rivals what we have there. SO delicious and reasonably priced. COVID precautions were well addressed. We sat inside. TIPS: they have free parking next to the restaurant!More

I came here with friends while we had some time during a film fest after a recommendation from someone local, and we're so glad we did! The dim sum here is fantastic! The veggie dumplings were really good, as was the chicken shu mui and...the red bean buns. The different rice dishes (steamed rice in baskets and the baked rice Hong Kong style) were all really good, too. Prices were affordable and the staff were friendly.More

We were so pleased to find this little gem while on a college visit in Albany. We ordered a ton of food and were really pleased with everything. The shu mai, xiao long bao, and jiaozi were INCREDIBLE. The noodle soup was good but not...as amazing without hand-pulled noodles. If our son ends up at RPI, we will be frequenting this little joint!More

Enjoyed the cold Bubble Tea and dim sum, esp. the shrimp rolls. Ordered the pork wonton and pan fried chicken cutlet noodle soup bowls and the broth had no taste to it, it was the blandest broth I have ever had in a soup. Waiter...ran into me coming out of the kitchen and was not very friendly in general which brought down my initial rating of 4 down to a 3.More

Everything we ordered was really tasty and just like you get in Hong Kong without being oily. The rice rolls were excellent and the egg tarts and custard buns perfect. Only complaint would be that the barbecue pork bun was too small. Hong Kong style...milk tea was just like what you get in HK.More

First of all, this restaurant on Central Ave in Albany has its own free parking lot, which is a plus in this area of town. Walking in the door, its a nice zen-like atmosphere with wooden tables and trimmings everywhere. The staff was friendly and...welcoming. The also serve bubble/boba tea here and it was great! We ordered some dim sum options (soup dumplings, hot and sour dumplings, spicy wontons, and roast pork dumplings) as well as a noodle soup (spicy diced pork). The hot and sour dumplings and the spicy diced pork noodle soup were the highlights here. Hot and sour dumplings were steamed and the wrappers were very thin with a great texture. The filling was so flavorful, and it came bathed in a delicious sauce with lots of pepper flakes - so good! The noodle soup had a delicious meaty broth with a really nice herbal aroma. The meat was tender and the noodles were the perfect chewy texture. We will definitely come back to this place!More

Taiwan Noodle is right up there with the NYC taste buds! I go here for the Beef Broth Stew Soup. It is delicious and good for the soul. Excellent menu covering dim sum, soups, apps, lunch and dinner plates. All prepared on site. Staff are...very attentive and friendly. Love the off street parking on Central Ave. Go Have Fun! Thank you Taiwan Noodle for making me feel better for the Holidays! CMore

Didn't want Chinese didn't want Sushi but wanted something in between.This place is the right choice.Located on lower Central Ave, we found off street parking. Reminded me of a place in NYC. Waiters were very friendly and helpful answering are questions since we've never been...here before. We came on a Wednesday and didn't have reservations, but they were busy. They featured a large menu with all types of noodle soups to choose from. Tried some apps we've never heard of. Everyone at our table enjoyed what was ordered. Well worth visiting. And a return visit will happen real soon.More

The food here is simply amazing! From authentic dishes, to items that are a little more close to home, this place serves it all. Menu is clear and easy to understand. The atmosphere is casual yet feels upscale. Can't recommend this place enough!

Stopped here based on a great looking menu, the looks did not disappoint. We had pot roast soup & home style soup, both excellent. Took home takeout of spicy wings and wontons. Both measured up.
