Over prices, not the best food (you pay for the view) and not the best service either. I'd say continue walking down further on the road to find other better places.

This is a hybrid cafe of both Chinese and western cuisine. While it sells coffee, it also sells traditional Chinese teas with a few selection of different Chinese tea leaves. She has western sandwiches but yet offers Chinese traditional style dishes. This is a nice place to spend an afternoon having lunch while relaxing in the nice ambience overlooking the... More

Came to this tea house after checking a few. We had traditional 鐡觀音 tea and few snacks。Away from the crowds a bit and a beautiful view. A good place to spend a few hours without worrying what to do. Cost? Why worry a few bucks for a piece of contentment which is what the tea house is selling.

Great view and location. The menu are quite unique - drunken chicken with tea oil, fern with raw egg and braised pork with leeks. Of course, the Maokong tea! Skipped the pork as it has fat layer that is too fat. Good that the leek counter the fatty taste. The fern vegetable is a must try. The dunken chicken is... More

What a great start! Calm! Beautiful! Delicious! As the cable car was closed (May) we taxied up, which is an interesting ride due to the narrowing roads. Costs $300 to get up ... Didn't use the meter! Cheap enough. We walked for another 10 mins once dropped off. Found this fantastic cafe. Sat in the deck. Drank delicious tea and... More

Guess it's normal for upscale restaurants to rip tourists off, charge a mandatory service fee and provide no service: Got cold and went for tea with a friend. 1. One full teapot does not include an extra cup for the second person. Got very frustrated about it. 2. Cheesecake we ordered was good but we also got a problem with... More

The fruit & blueberry waffles was crispy and delicious. So was the Mocha & Rose tea. Service was attentive & helpful in explaining menu items. When the table near the window was available they asked if we wanted to move over from where were seating! f you are in Maokong do stop by for coffee or tea break

Service sucks big time. Success perhaps has clouded their mind and soul. Rude, confused and spontaneous responses that defies sense.

Planned to go there after lunch for dessert but the restaurant was crowded. Since it was cold and raining outside, we requested to wait indoors because it was sheltered. However, they were extremely rude and impatient, making us wait outside in the rain. My dad was dizzy due to the long climbing but they still refused to let us in.... More
