I printed out the attached voucher that said it was a voucher printed on the paper, and it also had the QR code too. However, the people working at the restaurant said they didn’t recognize it and that it wasn’t the voucher ~ but I showed them where it had “voucher” printed on the paper and they made a call to confirm. Fortunately they honored it, but there was no skipping the line. I guess it’s busy time at 2:30pm on a Monday even. Maybe it stil saved us a few minutes. Anyway, the meal comes as a set course, which is convenient for foreigners like me who can’t read the menu in Chinese. Also, it tastes good. We were satisfied. For those other reviewers who say its good but not worth the higher price compared to other local dimsum places, I think the historical nature of the place, and how famous it is, makes it at least worth a visit for first time visitors so they can compare how much better or not this is. Otherwise, they may be left wondering if they should have tried it.
The view from the observation deck was amazing! You don’t really get a feel for how densely populated the island is until you’re up there looking down at all of the buildings. The interior of the building is also nice - good gift/souvenir shops and treats to enjoy. For something light and fun to do, I’d recommend this.
Being able to print out the ticket and avoid lines at the ticket counter is nice. Heads up you do need to print it out on the designated machine. The QR code will not scan. The tower obviously has great views. If you go at a popular time, you will have to wait in line for awhile.
The thrill of the high speed elevator, the high level spectacular 360° view out to the mountains and rainforests, the even higher outside observation platform, the lower level shopping mall and the massive food offering every Asian food delight.
There are guided tours as well on GYG that you should try and get but they go out fast. There are ones also done by the museum but the English tour is not so great because the lady's English was average and hard to hear what she said sometimes.
