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

Totally worth it!!! Bought online, walked in and past the long line to the counter, caught the next elevator up! Same for going back down, passed the line ad back on the elevator in a jiffy!

Great. Food was awesome. Usually you need to wait more than 50 minutes to get in the restaurant. With this voucher, we waited about 25 minutes.

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

Great view, great experience. Recommended for a Taipei visit.
