“Great for a break while at the National Palace Museum”
Review of Sanxitang Tea Room - CLOSED

Sanxitang Tea Room

It is a bit tricky to locate this place, as only one elevator in the whole museum takes you there, but definitely worth a visit. Old-world ambience, great views, and the tea and snacks selection will not disappoint.

We meant to just grab a quick rest and some tea, but ended up staying for two hours. Live Chinese harp music was playing, and the views were beautiful. We ordered a special meal for two--it came with a very nice roast duck, rice seasoned with bok choy (excellent), oolong tea and a small variety of pickles, ginger, soybeans. After this excellent repast, we decided to order dessert. We tried some different types--lotus seeds and dates in a tea broth, and almond "tea" (it was more like a milk/custard) with fried bread for dipping. Again, both excellent. Coffee was good, freshly brewed. Very, very relaxing. There was a line to get in, but we were seated fairly quickly. Service was a bit slow but still wonderful, and a great respite from all the museum walking.

Make your way to this elegant fourth floor 'teahouse' for a wonderful treat -- be it lunch, tea, or Chinese-style snacks. Exquisite food at reasonable prices--all in one of the world's top museums. (The teahouse is named after the Emperor Qianlong's studio where he kept his collection of scrolls.) If you don't know what to order, order the beef noodles (tender, juicy braised beef in a wonderful light soup with Chinese noodles). A bowl makes the perfect lunch.

N25°6'6.57" E121°32'55.32" The world’s largest en finest collection of Chinese art in the National Palace Museum makes a big impression, which continues in the design and splendid outside view of the Sanxitang Teahouse on the 4th floor. People flock to this teahouse to have a break so do make a reservation in the morning. It’s worthwhile. The interior design feels Japanese. We loved it. We choose dumplings, noodle soup with original Oolong tea. The lunch was truly excellent. Only the waitresses were slow, forgetful but still friendly. Recommended.
