We went on Sunday during dinner time and the place was packed. Luckily there was one table left upstairs. We went to their restaurant located in Sri Hartamas. We liked the decor very much and the service provided by the waiter on the upper floor was excellent. We would go there again for the food and service.

This is the original Foong lye before they expand to many outlets. It's still one of the best Taiwanese restaurant in town. One issue is hard to get parking and the outlet is rather small, reservation needed if you are large group

Came to this outlet at sunway pyramid last night. Ordered the set for 4 pax where we were allowed to change some of the dishes. It was very good with every dish well executed. The set was finished off by way of a lemon grass jelly dessert.

The place is always pack here especially during weekends but seriously do not know why the food is enjoyed so much by the diners. There is a huge selection of food and it is very difficult to decide on what to eat. In the end, we ordered their special sweet potato balls (which I don't find it that amazing to... More

Good service, ample portions and quality food. It is very popular and came recommended by an employee at a cosmetic store. I never had Tiawanese food before, so it was a pleasant experience. The man next to me ordered a dessert of ice cream which was huge enough to be a meal.

Service was slow and a little rough. All staff Myanmarese except the lady manager who took orders. Food was tasty but not as good as I remember it to me - my guess is that they are all worked to fixed formula without the soul of a good Chinese chef.

Me and my family went here to eat and as it was hot outside, we changed seats. They let us change seats, but the staff communication was not good so they took more than an hour to serve us our food because of the confusion. Our last dish took the longest because it wasn't even being prepared until the last... More

Diners need to book or come extra early as long queues are often seen. They have valet packing as the street are congested from morning till late evening.

Long queue to wait. Free drinks are served while waiting with chairs available outside of the restaurant. Standard and decent Taiwanese food, price in mid-range. Set meals are available. Glorious desserts. Eggs with tomatoes is the best dish. Not bad for a lunch with family, although atmosphere is a bit noisy as it is always crowded with people.
