“Nothing special”
Reviewed 4 September 2011

It has an extensive drink menu, but food offering is limited. The way they offer to "trade up" from salad to appetizer is rather odd! If they have simply state that these are the appetizers n that's the cost, it would have been much more appealing. But u r paying the full listed px on menu less the salad that was supposed to come w the entree! What kind of math is that??
Dessert was a warm apple pie, that was very tasty.
Nonetheless, the ambience is good, it's quint little place tucked way in an alley.

“Flavors' food is Better than that I had in very expensive restaurant in Sweden!”
Reviewed 24 August 2011

Whenever I miss Sweden, I go Flavors! Flavors keeps the real flavor of Swedish cuisine, and make it better! You don't have to go to Stockholm; just go to Flavors!

“Its good, but..”
Reviewed 11 August 2011

Flavours is a cosy and exclusive little restaurant located on a quiet side street, not far from Taipei 101 (about 15 min walk). Reservations should be made, although the place was not exactly crowded when we went there. Except me, it seems it was mostly locals dining there.

Flavours is a swedish restaurant (!), and serve traditional scandinavian food. The food is very good, not as great as some of the other reviews would have you think, but I would give it 4 stars out of 5. The portions are also quite small, and prices amongst the highest I've seen in Taipei - expect to spend around 4000 NTDs for Set menu for 2 people (with glass of wine, bottles are around 1500-2000 NTDs). The service is very good, and as you would expect from a swedish restaurant, their english is also very good. The atmosphere is nice, and its a good place to bring your girlfriend.

But again, as for food (which should be the most important criteria for restaurants), there are definitely other places that will give you a better culinary experience for a lower price.

“30 years of visiting Taipei - best overall restaurant experience”
Reviewed 10 May 2011

I have been coming to Taipei on business since 1980 - 1 to 5 times a year - every year.
Visited Flavors with a friend in mid March. Have had plenty of good meals - in large and small groups and very nice places. For a quiet evening,this was near the top of the list in every category. Food, service, atmosphere. It's a family operation with an international concept. Calling it Swedish is way to limiting. This is world fusion food without being extreme and with everything coming out just as you might wish

“tasteful, yummie and service with heart”
Reviewed 30 March 2011

we have been several times to flavors and it was always a hit for everyone! we love to dine out and tried lots of restaurants in the same price rank but this is our most favourite place to go. the salmon is my favourite! but also the appetizers and the food and the desserts .... the service with the heart of Chef Ola and his wife Stephanie adds on top to make our dining experience always a lovely lovely time. we just love it :)
