Yum Yum Chop Chop

Our family loves this place. Quick, easy seating, standard issue good chinese food, reasonable priced, get in, get out. Chop. Chop. No pleasantries, and I am fine with that.

Great food; very busy

The food and atmosphere are both great. I usually get take-out from this place as its easy & always prompt. Food is outstanding; a little disappointed that they charged for rice... but seems to be happening at a lot of places these days. \r \r Try the walnut shrimp & Mongolian beef.

Great Chinese Food

Probably the best Chinese food in San Jose, certainly Willow Glen. I've never had anything I didn't think was very good here. The take-out is good and pretty quick. The service is usually good but can be slow. The place gets very busy on weekends.\r \r The atmosphere is pretty standard Chinese restaurant. It's an OK place to bring kids if they can stand the occasional wait (or just bring it home). Parking behind th... view more

Consistently great Chinese food at Taiwan

Located on Lincoln Ave. in Willow Glen, Taiwan always serves great-tasting Chinese food--Szechwan, Cantonese and Taiwan specialties. Inexpensive and a great value. Nicely decorated with pale-pink linens and large, dramatic and beautiful floral displays, as well as many original paintings. Always busy, especially on weekends, so reservations are recommended. They also do take-out. Favorites are Szechuan shrimp, Changs... view more

The food is wonderful. The decor is unbeatable.

Do not go to Taiwan if you are a party of two. You risk being seated in the center bank of tables, where there is 1/2 to 1 inch of space between the tables. It is impossible to carry on a conversation without listening to your neighbors' conversations. You also have a not-so-lovely view of the waitress as she tries to angle into the minimal space between the tables to deliver your neighbors' meal.\r \r My friend a... view more

One of Best Chinese Restaurants in San Jose

Nestled in Willow Glen is the Taiwan Restaurant which offers classy California-Chinese cuisine equal to Mandarin Gourmet (in Cupertino) and PF Changs. If you are looking for authentic homestyle Chinese food from a distinct province, search in San Francisco, Milpitas and Cupertino. If you are looking for a fresh, friendly, well decorated, and refined Chinese restaurant created for a California palette, go to Taiwan ... view more

Wow! This is the place!

Though I love Chinese food, I am a stickler for quality. Taiwan is great! It is family owned and delicious. Service is friendly, food prompt, and taste delicious.

Go elsewhere....

My friend and I recently had dinner here. The food and service was below average. The food was way too sweet! We also felt rushed. I do not recommended this restuarant. I hope a good chinese restaurant opens in the area soon.

overly sweet, gloppy Chinese food

My husband and I were strolling in Willow Glen one evening and decided to try this restaurant out because there were so many people inside. The ambiance is nice, but all of the dishes we ordered came with sauces that were laden with sugar. This is definitely NOT authentic Chinese food, or even particularly good Chinese American food, but food for people who like whatever they eat sweet and swimming in sauce. We won'... view more

Outstanding!

Taiwan is always busy because the food is just outstanding! The service is excellent and the prices very reasonable. Due to its popularity, it can at times be crowded and noisy. My favorites are the Mu Shu Pork, Hot and Sour Soup, Cashew Chicken - well, I guess I've never had a dish here I didn't like. And the fresh floral arrangements are magnificent.
