This approx. 140 years old houses-on both sides of the street provide a unique atmosphere.
Only a few tables are available-a reservation should be obligatory.
The course of dishes served was extraordinary and delicious.
The chef offered us a bet-find out wish fruit was used for the salad dressing and get 50% off-he won ;-)
In one of the buildings you will find a small museum-definitely worth a glimpse!

Thank Jorhada

Didn't get to a good start as the owners said that they will close at 9pm but everywhere we checked out online said that this place closes at 10pm....I guess it was a slow night and they wanted to go home early.

We were summoned to get there by 8:15pm...we went because of the reviews here.

To sum up the meal was nice but rushed...a special but simple meal. Lots of rice and lots of simple dishes...

Check it out if you can get there earlier than 8pm...more time to relax and eat...if not go get food elsewhere!

The location, the interior deco, the history of the house, those made the dining experience special, for both foreigners and the locals. But how about the food? It's very common that tourists come to Tainan for street foods. I'll suggest that instead of hanging around queueing for foods, it'll be worthwhile to make a reservation here at this restaurant. From milkfish, stew pork, local greens, soup, etc, my friends and myself ate in a well food journey in one meal time. Not fancy style, for that is never Tainan style. No menu, for that here people prefer fresh and seasonal items. Sincerity and hospitality and above all, delicious food, that what it'll offer and what I like to reconmmend.
