    In my opinion, the dessert here is one of the best in Richmond. I would recommend sharing with another person because the portions are huge, but the food is so delicious that you may be able to finish it by yourself. The Taiwanese atmosphere and decor in this restaurant is beautiful, too.

    Very interesting atmosphere. Desserts here are traditional and delicious. Seats, not the most comfortable but it's alright cause it's all part of the experience and atmosphere. Service is pretty quick. Cute little place to eat some Chinese dessert with friends and family.

    We love coming here to get our fill of Taiwanese dishes. Shaved ice with tomatoes stuff with dried plum, with taro, peanuts and barley. Rice dishes are good too...for bigger meals we head to their other place Memory corner. Service is good and serves are friendly.

    Our go to place for Taiwanese desserts. Decor is great but the bench and stool style seating can be kind of uncomfortable and squishy. Portions are quite large, especially the shaved ice. Definitely meant for sharing! Jasmine, grass, and coffee jelly are also good options. Skip the tofu pudding. Taro balls aren’t the best, but the pearls are just the right amount of chewy. Can’t get enough of their sweet TEA. Minus one star for the service, which can often be subpar. Difficult to get their attention sometimes and the workers always seem to look bored or tired.

    Dessert tofu portion is huge, for a food price. I got 3 flavors, and it was very good! The bbt is also p good. Their food portions seem small, so it is more of a snack or if you're not very hungry. The food prices

    I am in LOVE with the original grass jelly here. I order it with the taro balls, which are the chewiest and most flavourful ones I've had at any dessert place. I'd recommend splitting one bowl among two people as the servings are pretty big and the taro balls are filling. They also serve a sweet complementary tea that is almost addictive. This place gets busy at night, so expect a wait if you're going on a weekend.

    The atmosphere was delightful. Like you step into the other side of the world. Food was really good and filling. The drinks was delicious. Would come back for sure.

    Loved their turkey rice although the amount of meat was lacking. The braised pork rice was also delicious. We ordered Taiwanese sausage and it was considered as a "special" order aka. it takes them 10min to make it - hughly recommend. Their bubble tea is also stellar. Would definitely come back for more.

    Nice little shop for food and desert.
    Love their sea salt foam tea's.

    They started taking credit cards.

  • *****

    Outstanding place. They focus mostly on desserts but you can find a few dishes. If you don't feel very adventurous, try the beef sauce with rice. We went there to get authentic grass jelly and they delivered. For us it's hard to find in the US but this one tasted like three one you get in Taiwan. Very happy.

    Great ambiance and decor. Really makes it feel like you're in Taiwan. Desserts taste great and really affordable.

  • *****

    The place looks amazing inside, totally reminds me of old school places in Taiwan, they even have those weird action dolls things. I can’t wait till I taste the food (getting take out because kids and someone is watching them).

  • *****

    Highly recommend their grass jelly. Great vibe and great service. Only problem is that it is not English friendly and cash only. their food is just as good as the dessert.

  • *****

    Amazing food and dessert. Ordered the hazelnut toast it was soooooo yummy. Love the environment! Will definitely come back again

  • *****

    Their classic tofu pudding dessert is the smoothest, most delicious I've ever had. We keep going back for more. Food selection is heavy on the snacks and desserts side, with limited offering of rice dishes. Their staff is friendly, and try their best to explain the items on the menu, i.e. power cakes. Seating is not the most comfortable (narrow wooden benches), but the place isn't too crammed. It's got some interesting retro decor too; makes you feel like you're visiting Taiwan in the 60s-70s.

  • *****

    The jasmine jello was a really refreshing dish to have! Would come back for it! The decorations of the place definitely brings you to the 70s- 80s experience of Taiwan. ?

  • *****

    Beautiful decor. Tried the original tofu pudding and the grass jelly, both of which were amazing. Also had the spicy pig ears. It's pretty good, but I like the tofu pudding and grass jelly more. Would go back.

  • *****

    Really neat hole in the wall full of vintage Taiwanese posters and items. They have small individual dishes and great desserts. I would recommend sharing them though because they're surprisingly big.

  • *****

    Great place for desserts. Love the construction and decor to make it look like an old street of Taiwan in the 1800s. Food is great, atmosphere is cozy, great for weekend hangouts. Location is a little hidden but not terrible.

  • *****

    Food of good quality. Tofu dessert was very silky soft.

  • *****

    the decor is really old school 70's taiwan street vendor style. desserts are nice, I love their grass jelly

  • *****

    Humble little Taiwanese eatery. Loved the tradition dishes and desserts.

  • *****

    Great atmosphere, retro Taiwanese music, friendly service and delicious food! We had the turkey rice, minced pork rice and the passion fruit shaved ice. Great little place to experience traditional Taiwanese food and reminisce old Taiwan in Richmond!

    This is a hole in the wall place that is very easy to miss. I didn't know this place existed until my friend went there. You can't see the inside of the place from the outside, but the decor of this place is amazing. It is a very retro place. They serve hot food and dessert. For dessert, there is quite a selection and toppings. It is a cozy place which is good for late night catch up.

    Best sweet place for authentic Taiwanese treat. All their options brought back memory. The entire store is decorated in Taiwan's 50s styles. Even my parents are amazed with the frames they put up, the ??? dolls, the antic bike, the traditional red lantern...etc. It feels like you are sitting in the Once Upon a Time movie set. Very amazing experience.

    If you ever miss home or simply want to indulge the true Taiwanese traditional sweet, this is the place.

    affordable price with large portion of food. very good taste on desserts

  • *****

    Good taste but heating too much

  • *****

    Classic Taiwanese braised pork rice + grass jelly + traditional Taiwan street feels + the legendary Teresa Teng music in the background = perfect experience.

    You must add taro and yam balls to your grass jelly (especially if you are obsessed with QQ foods like I am.) The portion was big; I actually packed half of it home and it still tasted good the next day. The classic Taiwanese braised pork rice (???) was super satisfying.

    The interior design and details created a unique Taiwanese street feel. It brought me straight back to Taiwan and those who know me, know that I love street food. I'm trying to think of one thing that they can improve on, but I'm having a hard time.

    I absolutely love this place!! When you go in you can tell the owner put a lot of effort into the decor which is in a traditional taiwanese atmosphere. This place is almost like a museum of Taiwan!! All the little details from tea cups, to music, to furniture makes this place very special. Their food and bubble tea are also very delicious. I especially like their bubble tea and nougat. Please go visit this place!

    Soy beverages are available if you ask for it. Decor is 10/10. Hecking fast food delivery (we were there around 5pm).

  • *****

    Food is good but sometimes need wait for a long time if your order hot pot

  • *****

    I've been here a couple of times now - the decor never gets old! I'm a huge fan of their super silky grass jelly.

  • *****

    Jasmine Jelly is always awesome. Checkout the fresh strawberry hotpots, you have to order this a day in advance.

  • *****

    Food is decent, mostly taiwanese small snacks at this location. Old school(old age) taiwanese atmosphere.

  • *****

    If you grow up in Taiwan you will smile when you walk into this restaurant. They put a lot of thoughts into their decorations, cups, pots, tables. And of course the food there is amazing! Will definitely bring my friends here. The only downside is its cash only. They don't take debit either.

  • *****

    One of the best Taiwanese places in Vancouver hands down

  • *****

    Most authentic Taiwanese cuisine you can find in Vancouver! ??? and ??? took me back to my childhood!

  • *****

    Store looks really nice and food are very authentic Taiwan foods. Menu writen in Chinese with no so helping English on it. They opens late but foods are very good. Their pork belly with rice also their miced pork rice taste very much the same to those in Taiwan. They also offers some Taiwan foods that cannot be found in other Taiwan restaurant. Price is acceptable in Vancouver but definitely eating those in Taiwan is much much cheaper.
