    This place is on the edge of Box Park, entrance on Dingwall Rd. Simple colourful, cosy interior, adequate seating tucked away outside the main noisy BoxPark food Hall type venue.
    The staff are friendly, polite and helpful. We had not eaten Taiwanese food before. I had rather ignorantly assumed it would be like Chinese food. What a fabulous surprise to find it is a mix of all that is good from neighbouring countries with influence from southern China, Japan, Korea and different native Taiwanese peoples.
    We ate Bao - a sort of fluffy soft pita shaped bread (steamed I think), folded over and stuffed with various fillings+salad+spices. (Much lighter than chinese buns)
    We ate chicken katsu and braised chicken both served with rice salad and miso.All were deliciously fresh + tasy.
    The 'sweet+sour tasting kimchee 'coleslaw' was an interestingly new variation on the Korean kind I'd had before.
    Forget greasy Chinese food or Wagamama. This place has the edge!
    We would not have found this place without Taste Card. "

    This place is perfect for a dinner with a loved one, business meeting or a quick bit with friends.
    Warm, cosy, intimate, friendly and very clean. A great place to learn about the wonders within the Chinese cuisine, not your run-of-the-mill Chinese restaurant.

    Great experience "
