Restaurants in Taipei

An arty favorite among students at the nearby universities with spot-on coffee drinks.

The original—and best—outlet of the legendary dumpling chain.


A café/gallery/restaurant/design store, the Museum of Tomorrow stocks ingenious Japanese home wares and furniture.

Music from Chinese lutes floats through the room; sunlight streams in from wood-framed windows and skylights and bamboo curtains create dappled patterns on the tatami mats. Green moss clings to the dark red-brick walls.

A classic breakfast spot.

An art house movie theater, café, and cinephile bookstore in the old U.S. ambassador’s residence.

Established in 1934, Taipei’s first Western-style restaurant.
