It's more of a Chinese restaurant but to make matters worse, selling sushi in a Chinese restaurant bodes poorly for rotation purposes because they don't sell enough and try to hold the fish as long as possible without throwing it out. Which is exactly why we received., pale, non tasting bland sushi. The tuna was as dark as the avocado... More

Portions are well sized, especially take out, and ingredients of good quality. Under-spiced, which I learned is typical for Pittsburgh 'ethnic' restaurants. Service is snappy and friendly - menu is standard Chinese fare nothing outstanding. Prices are relatively high, $7 for six steamed dumplings, $15 - $19 for basic dinner selections (or 1 quart take out meals) everything a little... More

Got chicken cashew to go and was pleased with my choice. For $10, you get rice, an egg roll, and an entrée. I was full 3/4 of the way through and was happy to have leftovers. I enjoyed each item and was pleased with the quality and quantity. I would go back to try something else.

The food is okay but never great. My husband likes it very much as he likes everything to taste the way it did ten years ago; no spices, kind of bland. The food appears to be made in advance as I have asked for variations on certain dishes and the kitchen cannot accommodate the request. The wonton soup is good... More

This has been my Mom's and now my favorite Chinese food place. The quality is always high and the people are nice. I order from Grubhub or BeyondtheMenu and the delivery is always prompt and the woman polite! The sushi is incredible and i cant live without the crab rangoons or the lo mein!

Taipei Chinese restaurant is situated at a nice location close to malls and shopping area on the Freeport Road. It has a stand-alone location and one can miss it while driving. There is ample parking there. Both exterior and the interior of the restaurant have been done well. There appeared to be a good footfall in the restaurant and overall... More

They have a very extensive menu. Everything on the menu is well made and very tasty. Not creative Chinese but very consistent. If you are looking for great basic Chinese this is the place. They serve Sushi as well. Though I did not have any I heard people saying how good it was. I go back every time I am... More

I have eaten at Taipei several times, and regularly have takeaway food as well. The lunchtime specials offer good value, with both Cantonese and Sichuan-style dishes, and the spices are bolder than at many local Chinese restaurants. Their food hygiene has never seemed especially good, but I was disturbed to see that they have recently been cited for serious food... More

My parents have been coming to this little gem for years. While the Chinese menu is typical and extensive they also offer fantastic Sushi. I ordered a Ahi and Pistachio Sushimi dish that was out of this world. My main course was Dragon and Phoenix, while others had shrimp in lobster sauce and duck along with a couple of soups.... More

Best sushi. Fresh, large rolls, wonderful ingredients. Service great andthey deliver locally! Price is higher than done neighboring sushi joints, but the food is worth it.
