We let our guide order for us as the names really didn't mean anything to us. We got a table full of different dishes and most were very good. The traditional noodles in a broth were excellent, so were the pickles, sausage pork with bamboo shoots . I liked very much the green vegetables, and the radish in tofu and... More

Not notable at all, I don't know why this has so many recommendations because the food was completely forgettable. The staff was also kind of unpleasant, pushy when ordering but icy when leaving. Wasn't even cheap (by Taiwan/Tainan standards), the extra cost looks like it goes towards trying to be fancy.

Very nice little restaurant with lots of small dishes of traditional food to choose from, all delicious and cheap (from 30 to 80NTD each). Service is nice and fast, and speak good English (menu translated into English). Definitely recommended

A great place in a really old shop/house with good food and very friendly and efficient staff. It struggled to find this but it is about 100 yards from the temple.

I was told the building that houses the restaurant used to be a school, and it is certainly a very charming place. We ordered a set selection of local dishes. Most were delicious, and all were interesting. Service was friendly and efficient.

This restaurant is a one stop shop for all of the local Tainan dishes such as peddlers noodles and coffin bread. However the food is not quite as good for dishes sucks as peddlers noodles as some of the other restaurants in Tainan.

First, the Trip Advisor listing has the wrong address; it is Number 180, not Number 118. The decor is traditional (as illustrated in some of the other reviewer's photos) and the food is traditional -- most of these dishes are not found in Taipei or Shanghai (I have lived in both places). The menu is trilingual (Chinese, Japanese, English). The... More
