Before you read this review, understand that this establishment only receives four stars because of its ambiance and environment. The dining experience at the Kitchen Table was a positive experience. Once you enter, the courteous staff greets you and escorts you to your table. The buffet is not the only food available. This establishment also offers very tasty orderves. My favorite appetizer was the Curry Egg Salad on top of a piece of Naah topped with salted caviar. I would describe the establishment as very vibrant and inviting. The Kitchen Table is one of those places where one can sit for hours with their friends and delight themselves with entertaining conversations for the entire morning or evening. Best of all, you will have an endless supply food. This includes: Sashimi, Yorkshire Pudding, small cakes, an assortment of Teas, and Lattes. So, it makes for a great place to sit, relax, and enjoy the moment. This is especially welcoming in the dutch oven known as Taipei during the summer time. But, the food really is not spectacular. It is above average and comparable to a acquiring a High B borderline B+ in a school grade. You can acquire much fresher Sashimi in other Japanese restaurants. The best coffee I have ever the privilege of tasting was in Bali, Indonesia at the Doomba Shop and the Lattes we ordered were just a level above Starbucks' quality.
However, despite the above mediocre level of the food, the environment and the ambiance was still great. It is still more preferable than paying for Marco Polo in the Shangrila Far East Hotel. That place is purely ambiance and extremely average Italian food which could not hold a candle to a local pizzeria back in America. If it was the food alone, this place would have received three stars. However, the decor, environment, and the welcoming aura that it exudes will cause me to state, This place is worth the money you pay for. However, if you are showing up for extremely wonderful taste bud scintillating cuisine, you will be sorely let down.
