The food is OK, the point is it's cheap and fast. Recommended their chicken broth, with less than TWD 100, you can have the great comfort food which is almost like the one you will have in Ding Tai Feng.

This place is a go-to whenever I visit Taipei, because the food is good and the price won't break the bank by far. Don't speak Mandarin/Taiwanese? No problem. Go in, ask for a table for however many you have, and they can provide a menu in English. You have an order pad to fill out, and although that is in Chinese, the order of items matches the menu (5th item on the menu will be the 5th item on the order pad), or you can match the characters. Then hand off your order and they will take care of the rest. You can get tea from a silver container by where you came in. When you're done, go to the cashier and they usually know what you've had and will just tell you the total. Easy enough.

Stopped in for a quick and cheap dinner. Delicious dumplings and beef noodle soup. Service excellent! No English skills, but menu in English and easy to order.

Nice little restaurant for dumplings and noodles. Relatively clean and food is good. A place for a quick meal and would not break your budget.

Their Zong zi (fatty pork wrapped in rice, wrapped in a leaf and steamed-if you've never tried one, do yourself a favor!) is the best I've ever had. All their dumplings and xiaolongbao are also great.
