We went to Chun Shui Tang for lunch (at a different branch) and liked their Taiwanese bites. We wanted to try some more adventurous dishes but didn't trust the night market too much, so ordered the blood rice cakes at Chun Shui Tang and some of their small dishes. Authentic Taiwanese tastes and we were glad to have tried them.... More

Bubble tea was invented in Taipei at Chun Shui Tang. The original location isn't around anymore, but the tradition continues at this location, just a short walk from MRT Taipei Arena station. Furthermore, it's not just about the pearl milk tea. It's an entire culinary experience, therefore, please order some food to go with your tea. How it works here... More

If you only want to try one Taiwanese milk tea only, this should be the place to go. Taste of tea is not very rich, but it's smooth and quite aromatic. There are quite a lot of snacks to order too, and my favourite is French Fries and siumei.

If you're a traveler visiting to Taiwan for the first time, i would suggest that you come to Chun Shui Tang to get your first taste of Taiwanese foods and beverages. They have many outlets all around Taipei with very good atmosphere and affordably priced considering the quality and environment provided. Certainly the food quality is top grade as you... More

春水堂人文茶館信義店 We went there with over 10 persons. We were there for talking and drinking tea. I went to other branch before. The service in different branches may not good, but the food is O.K.

Nice and quality taiwan food provide with a low and mid range price in a comfortable restaurant. But it may take a long wait especially weekend for food preparation and seat. Must order the noodle and milk tea which are the recommendation dish.

Was quite disappointed that they didn't have Peanut Butter Toast available in the Taipei outlets, but fortunately, they have expanded so its easier to locate a branch. Love their bubble tea, worth every calorie and pearl! I typically order it without sugar. Do try the assorted Siew Mai & Turnip Cake! I love the pork siew mai better!

You have to try the Original pearl milk tea at Chun shui tang, it's very delicious. I didn't try the food there but I heard that it's quite good and I saw the price it's not that over.

This place was great, but unfortunately it closed its doors a couple of months ago. As a curiosity, latest Typhoon Hayan broke all their huge windows.
