Good food and they serve alcohol. Good and quick service and a nicer atmosphere than I expected given the location in a plaza. Near the Rovers Return so combines well with a pre or post dinner pint! Plenty of veggie options and not too expensive.

The decoration of the restaurant is fine. The food however is anything but Chinese; it tastes more like food served at hospitals (not salted, no spices) it is as if they boiled the dish in water without adding any spices then served you with that. Im positive Im not going back to that restaurant.

Every time I visit Aqaba I always make it a point to visit Formosa. Great staff and Delicious Chinese food- I would go as far as to say that its one of the best Chinese restaurants in the kingdom.

We ordered 2 chicken meals : cashew chicken, and chicken with oyster sauce. Also tried their shrimp with orange sauce. Chicken was bland and the sauces... More

Touring Jordan we had remarked on the lack of Chinese food and then on a stroll walked into Formosa in Aqaba on our first night ,which was a welcome change. The food was great. Service very quick and polite Large portions of everything I would recommend this place. Very reasonable too.

This is a family restaurant. We enter to eat for the first time and we don't exactly what to order and if it is enough for 3 people. The owner suggest us for 3 different dishes, 1 beef, 1 chicken, 1 noodles with shrimps. The food was enough but first of all very delicious. We finish with ice cream and... More
