Sinbala is the best Taiwanese restaurant in the LA area. No other place can beat Sinbala.

Their spicy beef noodle soup is the bomb. I also love their oyster pancake, taro slush (it has real taro in there! this is the "must have" drink when i go there. Pumpkin rice noodle is very good too. Usually i dont eat pumpkin, but Sinbala is the exception.

O yes.. dont forget their famous Chinese sausage. They also sell uncooked Chinese sausage for you to take home and store in your frig.

This restaurant serves home style Taiwanese cuisine that is very delicious and authentic. Having been to Taiwan several times, the food at this restaurant reminds me of the excellent offerings that can be found in the vibrant night markets of Taipei. The service is excellent and the servers are surprisingly polite and courteous which tends to be absent in most Chinese restaurants in the area. Definitely try the 5 spice fried chicken and end with a Taiwanese shaved ice "Bpar bpow bping."

Authentic Taiwanese local dishes, such as oyster pancake, Fuzhou fishball, pumpkin fried rice noodle, and their world famous Sausage with garlic! Be prepared to wait in a line.

Excellent shaved ice with caramel sauce drizzled on top, but I haven't tried the other food.
