Imagine being transported to a small suburban shop in the outskirts of Taiwan, where the staff are friendly, atmosphere is calm and food is top notch. This is what the place feels like. Food is delicious, pricing is reasonable and drinks were good. Would we go back? Yes. Would we recommend? Yes. Left the place with a satisfied stomach and a happy person

Small, cozy and felt like your neighborhood cafe. Overall the flavour are pretty on point especially with popcorn chicken and the pancake. Place is really small so I would recommend coming during off-peak hours or get takeaway.

First time there with 5 others..... recommended for Taiwanese lunch.
Small but cosy and pack with mainly students and take away deliveries.
Menu is a very simple one with pictures of the dishes..... so no problem to order.
Staff are very busy but friendly and helpful. We ordered 9 dishes for 6 people... bit too much !!!
Food came very quickly..... 10 minutes after orders.... hot and authentic.... no wonder the crowd of mainly Taiwanese Monash students !!!
Had to relinquish the table for the waiting crowd. Worth the going & waiting.
Cheers to 'Yes '
Oh my gosh! This place is amazing. My friends and I happened upon it the other night. The food was amazing, reasonably priced and there were cute little games available to play at your table. The staff were so friendly that they even gave us free food! I am definitely coming back!
We tried their 招牌卤肉饭 (signature minced pork rice) and 鹹酥雞 (popcorn chicken).
The popcorn chicken was really crispy on the outside and moist and juicy on the inside. Compared to many popcorn chicken which is usually dry on the inside, this popcorn chicken was really juicy and yummy! The dish also came with what I think is their own-made dipping sauce, which resembles part sweet chili sauce and part mayo.
The signature minced pork rice. Oh gosh. They were not stingy with their gravy/sauce or their ingredients. The whole bowl was just packed with heaps of ingredients comprising of a sunny side up fried egg, sliced sausages, minced meat, preserved vegetables, half a sotong ball and coriander.
The rice, that is soaked with flavour, was so inviting. There was so much ingredients in that bowl that it is almost impossible to have a spoonful of nothing but plain rice. Everything in that bowl was made with love, that caresses you from the inside with every spoonful. In fact, so much love that you can almost feel the warmth glowing from within as you take every mouthful.
The eatery is a small little shop, but you’ll feel at home once you are in there. Maybe it’s the yellow lighting, maybe it’s the mandarin songs that they play through the speakers; but it’s definitely a nice place to bring yourself out of Australia into a little shop in Taipei and enjoy some me-time or cozy time with a group of friends.
And oh, please bring cash because they do nit accept cards. Otherwise, they accept payment via bank transfers as well.
