You ever been to a college basketball game when the visiting "hot shot" comes to town and the home student's start the chant of "overrated"? That's the way I felt after eating here. I'm a ribeye guy when it's good but although a large portion this one was not the slightest bit tender. How a ribeye cannot be tender is beyond me. The restaurant was not crowded so I can see how they would run out of some sides which they did. The service was just ok. Too long to get a glass of wine. This place is living off a reputation earned somewhere else.

I have been to Ruths Chris here in Taichung at least a dozen times over the years and so far it has not disappointed a single time!

Service is wonderful with friendly and helpful staff (manager comes by the table to personally greet more often than not). Their English is good, though not perfect, and always a prompt arrival when beckoned. Valet parking service definitely a plus!

Wine list is decent for a restaurant in this area and prices on it are also reasonable.

Steak is definitely the best quality in this area and the pan fried mushrooms and mashed potatoes are a definite must.

The main issue is the price but I don't mind spending a bit extra for quality, especially since it is usually a special occasion that takes me there!

This restaurant provides essentially what every Ruth Chris restaurant does. Good steak and great cream spinach. This one has a pretty mediocre wine list, but we made do and enjoyed a decent Cab.

Back home Ruth Chris is not my steakhouse of choice. There are many better choices wherever they are located, but not in Taichung.

Expensive but not unexpectedly so.

Don't go looking for a great dinner, but do expect a good steak.
