“Love this place!”
Reviewed 12 August 2012

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Taichung.

The whole place is decorated to look like old Taichung, completed with an old train and theater posters. Awesome for picture taking.

Food is good and cheap.

Gets pretty busy on weekends so call ahead and reserve a table for your party.

“Interesting Place”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

Almost all of the furniture are from old Taichung around 50-80 years ago, reflecting the old era of Taichung. Can have drink, food, coffee here-taking pictures here are most interesting. Can have a look of the old movie theater in Taichung-all of the stones are replaced to here.

“Great food in a nostalgic setting”
Reviewed 3 February 2012

This place is very unique due to the the 1940s old Taichung decor. Great for phototaking! The food is tasty at reasonable price
