“Cool design restaurant you shouldnt miss”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

Very interesting restaurant which you should visit if not for the food, the decor will blow you off. The food is decent and more to my malaysian palette...chinese style food. Price is typical of a chinese restaurant.i took in the environment with relish and must say, this is a must try

“Good food, overdone decor”
Reviewed 25 January 2014 via mobile

I suppose it would be cool if it wasn't a serious restaurant. Sadly had a Laser Tag or Rainforest Cafe vibe. And the tour buses bringing in hordes, who never got in the way mind you, seemed to lend itself to the full commercialism of the joint. Further, the artist who owns it has a sweet story, but she must be loaded to set this place up.
The food was another story - absolutely wonderful and well prepared. Great company dinner.

“Unique decor”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

If you want the best Asian food then this place won't be it, but it is really good. The architecture is very unique and thats the main reason this place gets busy.

“Just a tourist spot with nothing much to offer”
Reviewed 19 December 2013 via mobile

So I read about it and decided to check it out. The architecture is nice. The food was nothing more than average. Lots of tour buses come here. Restaurant was full and Taiwanese rarely patronize this place. If you are looking for something authentic and localized, this wont be it. Go across the road to grab some ginger soup base steamboat would have been better.

“Amazing restaurant theme with relaxing ambience and good food”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

Design is amazing and you can't imagine that you are still in taipei. Worth a visit to experience something extraordinary..

Service is excellent, food choices are kind of limited. Only chinese food.
