Overall rating

4.5 / 5

Faced with a 150 minute wait, we only waited 15 minutes arriving with our printed reservation and at lunch time. The courses are varied and you leave full. Kind and efficient waiters. Open kitchen with chefs preparing dim sum. Very nice

Alan was so friendly and eager to share his knowledge of Taipei. We ended up booking a second day to go to Jiufen and Shifen. We would highly recommend him.

Great value for money. We enjoy the experience. Just remember you have to print out the voucher from the Restaurant, not app voucher

the trip was good, guide was good but unfortunately it was raining heavily.

The tour was short but worth it. The dinner at asi. Tai Fung amazing!
