this is by far, without a doubt the best chinese food in the area. Your review was absolutely ridiculous and lacked any substance whatsoever. My garlic sauce was hot? dude didnt you ever eat soup. give it a little blow and enjoy. seriously dont listen to this fool. tai pei is one of the only chinese restaurants in the area that CHINESE people eat at. thats got to tell you something.

My mother has been dining at Taipei for over 10 years and loves to go often. I had planned on taking her to another restaurant where I had made reservations, but Mom wanted only Taipei. Without reservations, we walked in to a packed house looking for a table for 9.
We were told it would be a 30 minute wait, but was surprised when we got seated in about 10. Dinner was exceptional! We ordered Sushi and Chinese, with the best being the Japanese Oysters and the Surf and Turf. Even though it was busy, the server was quick and polite and the service was outstanding. Everyone enjoyed the night as we had plenty of food to take home for lunch tomorrow. The manager even stopped by to make sure our meal was going well even though his leg was in a cast. He was charming and funny and entertained the kids while us adult finished our meal!
They did all the little things that you don't see anymore in restaurants and I sure am glad Mom made us go there. I am definately going to be a regular there now!
There are six asian restaurants in this area and this is by far our favorite. While it does not have quite the ambiance of a couple of the other Asian places nearby, it is a very comfortable and cozy atmosphere. The sushi is very fresh and well made, with very high quality ingredients. Their Boston roll and Tai Pei roll are special favorites. The chinese food is always hot, fresh and delicious. My family loves all the food - moo shu, General Tso's (the best anywhere), beef and broccoli, sweet and sour pork and chicken, shrimp with snow peas, fried rice - all great. And they have delightful "Chef's Suggestions" like Imperial Beef, Crispy Prawns, Peking Duck and even flounder, shrimp and scallops and Filet Mignon, all done with a chinese flair. The staff is very friendly and attentive, and service is very good. If you like asian food, try this palce... you'll like it! (The take-out is great too!)
This is an excellent Chinese restaurant. Very well worth the prices. I've never had better orange beef or Chicken Lo Mein anywhere else. Highly recommended. Casual atmosphere, very clean, very attentive and accomodating staff. Food is presented, not just served. Try the egg and vegetable spring rolls too!

The Owners came over and ask how was everything. We said everything was good as always. Then we ask them do they know Jimmy Wan. They were like who is Jimmy do we know Jimmy? I was like the owner Jimmy! Then they were like yes Jimmy he was Managing the Restaurant and had 30% shares BUT he wasn't the ONLY OWNER. The reason that he is no longer here is that he was using company check like personal check. I was like WOW everyone thought he was the only Owner here.I guess he was not the only owner then. I think you guys did a great job here. Upgrade a lot of stuff and I love your BIG screen TV's. I'll have to come in on Sundays now to watch Steeler Games. Once again Great food and friendly people down there.

I went to Tai Pei last weekend. The atmosphere was nice and we were seated in a nice secluded booth in the corner. Our waiter Martin was a nice guy. My miso soup was delicious - it had onions and mushrooms added to the normal tofu, seaweed, and green onions. My mother's dish of shrimp with mixed vegetables was also great. However, I ordered the Sushi Plate and the quality slowed down. The fish, while fresh, did not taste great. It was the rice that really turned me off; it was warm and not very soft. The prices were higher than other quality sushi restaurants. While I may go back for some good Chinese, I will most likely not give the sushi a second try.

My friends have told me that they have new sushi chef's there and should go and try it. We went there friday night with my family and they were busy. We had to wait about 10 mins for our table to be ready. We order a Sushi Boat and 3 Special Rolls(American dream Roll, Lobster Roll and Phoenix Roll). It was the best Sushi we had. We Highly recommnded everyone to go and TRY IT!!
