The food is pretty good, similar to 鼎泰豐 and no need to wait that long. I like this restaurant. 絲瓜蝦仁湯包 比鼎泰豐的湯包還好吃. 甜點也美味可口. 有電梯可上到三樓. 一樓的外賣部的工作人員也很親切. 點餐之后,上菜速度也算怏. 總的來說,碓實是值得再次光臨造訪之餐廳.

We just walked in. Actually a lot of Taiwanese restaurants don't take reservations especially small ones. Not sure about this one though.... There are a lot of good restaurants in that neighborhood anyway... So don't worry... More
