We arrived at 8:30pm so the restaurant only served hot pot and small snacks- so we got a seafood hot pot, pork buns, shrimp rolls and lotus seed fried buns- they were all fantastic!! It was a great experience- really enjoyed the atmosphere and decorations of old Taiwan. Highly recommend!

The interiors of the restaurant are very nice. If you watch those Chinese films set around this period, you can imagine the background music playing in your head and you’ll feel like a character on a movie. You can just stay here for a bit and immerse yourself in the beauty of the interiors. There’s also a simulation of a... More

This is a thematic restaurant of old Taiwan and it's a great place for photography! If u enjoy vintage stuffs this is an amazing place to learn about history or reminisce the old times. My favorite part of the restaurant is actually the installation of a bus outside of the restaurant. It's really pretty and photo worthy! Don't forget to... More

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

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
