Really enjoyed dinner - good range of food, all of which was very good. Service was reasonable, and although it is not cheap by local standards, it was worth the cost for me. Well worth trying

This restaurant was very close to our hotel so we ate there twice. The first time we went for pork ribs and crab dumplings they were a bit pricey buut were very good. the second time we decided to have crab and share it. Unfortunately we didn't ask the weight of the crab- well the picture looked like a big... More

This is a chain store which owned by listed food company. Branch stores are by Metro or at easily accessible locations. Food quality are well managed by team work with service a bit not compatialbe with its food quality and pricing. If you go here for Xiaolongbao(steamed pork bun), you may try another economical store "小上海" at No.62, Section 4... More

Tried it today while we were near Taipei station. About 8mins walk. Best to go from ground instead of walking over by underground. Cos you will end up walking up tons of steep stairs at exit Z10. Food was freshly made. A lunch set for two has lots of food price tag of 1980NT. Ordered a few other items. All... More

Super super recommended! The pork ribs are good, but very expensive tho. Just ask for recommendation, since the menu is huge, and there are a lot of... More

Service & Food were ordinary. Only the custard buns and xiao long bun were of comparable standards with Din Tai Fung. Other than that, nothing on the menu was a must to die for. Prices were alittle too high for their ordinary food. It's focus are on Korean and Japanese tourists. If you are chinese by race, you will be... More

majority is tourist who came to dine in. food quality is good. service is good. but for me I feel it's overpriced. shrimp fried rice cost NTD 280 majority dishes around 300-1000 NTD. ambience of the restaurant is oriental if you're looking for quality fine Chinese cuisine. then it's recommended.

Must try the cold chicken and beef noodles and I am pretty sure the pork dumplings are delicious well. The beef just melt into your mouth. We didn't try the dumplings as we don't take pork but we saw many people ordered. The closest MRT to this restaurant is NTU Hospital (RED LINE) which is about 10-15 minutes walk A.pleasant... More

Second time visiting this restaurant when visiting Taipei, but this time with the extended family and we got to try more dishes. Service was good and dishes were not bad. My family liked the food, even though they are not a fan of Shanghainese cuisine. They are also known for their Xiaolongbao and it tastes much better than those served... More
