Highly recommend this picturesque and immersive restaurant that brings you back to 1950s (I think?) Taiwan. Great food and value for money as well.

This venue doesn't look like much from the outside but once you walk in your immediately transported to 1970s Taiwan. The interior is very rustic with decor to match, the displays are very old school! The menu has a modern Flavours so good place to visit if you need a feed, otherwise you forced to sit down and they have... More

My family of 5 (3 adults and 2 young kids) really enjoy this themed restaurant. Great decoration, nice food and attentive waiters/waitresses.

The owner has clearly spent enormous amount of time effort to recreate this "Old Taiwan" experience. Thank you for the great hospitality!

Great atmosphere. Just like what we saw in olden days Chinese movies - dinning on the street of old Taiwan. This place is part museum, part restaurant - the decor is unique and it brings back childhood memories. There's a collection of old toys on the upper floor - access via the old cinema. Food is just normal - nothing... More

The place is a short drive from Taichung Park, next to the Confucius Temple. The setting is very retro, with old street scenes, movie posters, toys, cameras and so on. The food is traditional and very tasty, and so are the drinks. It's a bit pricey for Taiwan (mains are about 200twd, milk tea 69twd), but worth it if you're... More

Thought this would be a nice & fun place to visit after reading done reviews else where! It's a total waste of time! And the food was pretty expensive according to taiwan's standard! The restaurant was pretty deserted & staff also looks sleepy!

The restaurant was recommended by our hotel. We went with family of 8. It was so good we came back twice! The authentic decoration were scenes from our childhood -- the cinema ticketing office, the school classroom, the staircase, street scenes. We had great time exploring and reminiscing. The 4 year-old had a fabulous time behind the ticket counter, on... More
