My family of 5 (3 adults and 2 young kids) really enjoy this themed restaurant. Great decoration, nice food and attentive waiters/waitresses.

The owner has clearly spent enormous amount of time effort to recreate this "Old Taiwan" experience. Thank you for the great hospitality!

Great atmosphere. Just like what we saw in olden days Chinese movies - dinning on the street of old Taiwan. This place is part museum, part restaurant - the decor is unique and it brings back childhood memories. There's a collection of old toys on the upper floor - access via the old cinema. Food is just normal - nothing... More

The place is a short drive from Taichung Park, next to the Confucius Temple. The setting is very retro, with old street scenes, movie posters, toys, cameras and so on. The food is traditional and very tasty, and so are the drinks. It's a bit pricey for Taiwan (mains are about 200twd, milk tea 69twd), but worth it if you're... More

The restaurant was recommended by our hotel. We went with family of 8. It was so good we came back twice! The authentic decoration were scenes from our childhood -- the cinema ticketing office, the school classroom, the staircase, street scenes. We had great time exploring and reminiscing. The 4 year-old had a fabulous time behind the ticket counter, on... More

Very nice ambiance and food is delicious. Only set back, you need to queue up before seated. A long wait to good food. For those wanting to go , be prepared to wait, but its worth it.

This restaurant presents the past street view of Taiwan, letting people recall and feel like they are back in old days, the decorations are cool and the atmosphere is really great, they also serves the original Taiwanese cuisine, you can either share the plates with friends or just have the set meal for yourself. If you got some foreign friends,... More
