Pros: Excellent authentic Taiwanese / Chinese food Decent portions Friendly and "mom/pop" service Cons: Small place -- less than a dozen tables Tables need to be replaced -- showing age This is the go-to place for traditional Chinese or Taiwanese food. Ask for the "Chinese menu" -- it has English descriptions on it, or ask about the written traditional Chinese... More

This restaurant purports to specialize in duck dishes prepared Chinese style. We didn't order it and instead ordered other dishes. The food was far below standards even for small towns Chinese food. We noticed that neighboring tables had their duck dishes and their food looked better.

Wow! Definitely the best Peking Duck in the Triangle. This is a tiny place with no ambiance. However, the night we went the clientele was almost entirely Asian, which, to me, is a good sign. Many of the tables ordered duck and the food looked good, but it took a while to get a table. We were not disappointed once... More

We keep searching for interesting Chinese food (like Peter Chang's in Richmond) but also with options that are not too fiery--just flavorful. We tried Taipei Cafe early on a Sunday afternoon and were surprised to find that they offer their luncheon specials seven days a week. The luncheon special is certainly good value: for $6.50-6.95 you can get an egg... More

This small restaurant serves excellent Taiwan-style Chinese cuisine. We started with an excellent hot and sour soup, although our friends shared a vegetable with tofu soup for two. We had the very garlicky broccoli with garlic sauce (yum!) and mapro tofu - cubes of silken tofu in a very spicy sauce. The spice level was just short of too much... More

This is a simple restaurant, small, fast, good service and fundamentally good food. As a caveat I would say that if you look at the simple lunch menu you would find the typical Chinese meals with black beans, orange sauce etc, that are definitely not worth trying. Ask for the full menu and talk to the server for recommendations. They... More

We had heard good things so we stopped in for take-out one night. The restaurant is on the smaller side, and not fancy. But it has a homey, family-run feel to it, unlike many fast food places. Our food was cooked to order, and it was all tasty and not too oily. We will definitely return. The only complaint would... More

They are always pleasant and the food is tasty. Very convenient for take out. We often ask for slight modifications. Never a complaint.
