“Great bar, Great Pizza, Great Owners”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

We popped into The Hop on our latest business trip and had a great night. I feel it deserved another review.

Again we had great service, great food and got talking to the owners who recognized us from previous trips (nearly a year ago).

What has changed, well the upholstery has been replaced and they have introduced Pulled Pork into the menu which is very good. The beer selection was a good as previous but had changed.

This bar is a must if staying the area.

“Best wings in Taiwan”
Reviewed 29 January 2014 via mobile

This is my favourite bar in Taiwan. The owners are great--very welcoming, chatty, cool, and helpful. The wings are made with the same recipe as THE original buffalo wings from Buffalo, and I promise you will not find better on Taiwan, maybe Asia. They also have a good eclectic beer selection. I'll be back for sure.

“The H.O.P...a little bar with a big atmosphere”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

A great bar run by brilliant staff. The owner is from Buffalo, NY and bring provides some great food including his own Buffalo Wings. The Pizzas are the star attraction and they are cooked in a clay oven at the front of the building. The bar is small and cosy with an amazing atmosphere and live music on some nights. The bar has lots of table games available for those who want to play with friends. If you are new and on your own sit at the bar to take in the atmosphere and you will no doubt get befriended by the staff.

This is a must if you are in the Taoyuan City area.

“Great pizza. Great Service. Great crowd.”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

This place was suggested to me by one of my students. I found the service friendly and prompt. The pizza was great--those old brick ovens make a difference for sure. The owner and his wife came over to say hello and ensured, as foreigners, we had all that we needed. It was a great evening all around, thanks also to the selection of fine beers. Very glad we visited here.
