I've been eating at Taipei Express for years, and they are consistantly stellar. You can't help but notice how shiny and clean the kitchen is when you walk in- sparkly stainless steel from floor to ceiling. A row of men in while aprons tossing food in & out of pans...fire flashing up, big woks spinning around... but that's not even the stellar part... the truly stellar part is that in all those years, ordering at least once or twice a month, they have never ever gotten my order wrong... not one time. These people have an attention to detail that is to be admired. We discuss it everytime we order from there.
You can eat in there dining area, but it's small and the seating is not at all made to linger in, so we think it best to call ahead and take it home. The food comes in these fantastic black plastic containers that do not spill or leak. I really appreciate their thoughfulness in provinding above average to-go containers. It's a huge portion of piping hot chinesey goodness, no matter what you order! The rice comes seperate, white or brown. Their egg rolls are yummy as are the crab rangoons.
They're only a dollar or so more than fast food, and it's usually enough to allow for left overs :-) It's not flashy, and there are no koi ponds or paper lanterns, but it's solid, reliable, enjoyable chinese food.
