Italian/Taiwanese fusion - Edit

multiple course meal for a reasonable price given the amount of food. some courses feel Taiwanese inspired, like tofu salad (delicious) and red bean dessert, but the main courses are definitely Italian (pasta, pizzas), and actually the least interesting part of the meal for me, I enjoyed the smaller plates and fancy drinks more than the entree. still a nice dinner and experience.

Pros: English menu available

My favourite in Taiwan - Edit

Sufood offers a 5-course dinner for 440NTD. The atmosphere is classy, the service is excellent. The food is mostly Italian but you will find some very typical Taiwanese meals on the menu.
During my time in Taiwan, I try to go there at least once a month and have visited this restaurant with many friends. Nobody was left disappointed.
I'm sure, you won't find a similar restaurant in Europe - especially since high-class restaurants are usually not specialized on vegetarian food. You would pay a much higher price for such a menu in Europe and for vegetarians the choices are very limited.
For a vegetarian/vegan it's a must to visit this restaurant on a trip to Taiwan!

Pros: Great Service, Many locations, Tasty food

Cons: didn't expand to Europe yet

Fun Dinner - Edit

If I had kids I would probably take them here. The restaurant is trying to achieve an upscale atmosphere with multiple courses and attentive service, but it mostly just felt like a family restaurant. There was a kid's birthday party at the table next to mine and they seemed to be having a lot of fun with their fancy vegetarian meal.

The way the restaurant works is everyone pays a set price (sorry, I already forgot the exact price but the estimate on the description here of 400 TWD sounds about right; it might have even been a bit cheaper than that). You look through a picture menu and make a selection for each course, and I think there was about seven courses. The Italian-fusion food I ate was all good, but nothing was too creative or nuanced. They will make spicy food here, which is a nice change from other Taiwan vegetarian restaurants, but some might even argue a few of the flavors are a bit too heavy-handed (again, maybe good for kids).

Overall, I had a good time. The meal was reasonably priced and I couldn't finish all of it because I was so full. However, I wouldn't call this restaurant upscale. It's trying to be upscale but has a bit of an assembly line feel to it. Plus, the servers were running around with their hands stacked high with dishes and the bathrooms could have used some maintenance. Still, my friends and I had a fun dinner at Sufood!

There's an English menu if you need it (and pictures). Exit 3 of Guting is the closest metro exit. Reservations are probably essential on a weekend. It's a really popular place!

Pros: Fun Environment, Value for Money, Variety

Cons: Food is Average Overall
