This place has a long history which started to sell duck meat initially but now it's selling goose meat. You can order noodle with soup and goose meat. Must try when in Ximending.

I dont know why people raved about this shop. The food is oily, the goose (not duck!) is tasteless, and it's expensive. Simply not worth!

This restaurant at a busy corner of a street junction in XiMenDing is well known as it is periodically featured in Taiwanese TV infotainment programmes. I enjoy braised duck rice but I Can't rave about the version served at Ya Rou Bian. The portions are hearty but unfortunately the meat was rather tough. Would taste better if they had used smaller birds and served the meat in thin slices instead of chopping it into 1/2" thick pieces.

The meat is tough, sticks to the bone, and poorly chopped. The service staff has a poor attitude. The noodles are soaking in oil. This was my experience and probably my worst experience after 5 days in Taipei.

There are numerous other local eateries nearby that deserve your time and money.

If you are Chinese, you will know how goose or duck should taste. I would urge you to keep far away from this place.

Only 1 shop, no branches.

Goose was nicely smoked. Nice to pair with soup rice vermicelli with lots of beansprouts and go with the garlic chilli sauce!

They offer vacuum packed birds and we HAD to buy some home.. delicious!
