The food is always good, never been disappointed. They are renewing the menu pretty often, always have original dishes from starter to dessert which always taste really good. I recommand :)

Gien Jia is a modern French influenced restaurant that is distinctly high end by Taiwanese standards. It has a nice ambience and very friendly and helpful staff but unfortunately we found the food to be beautifully presented but disappointing. We had Chicken Wings with Shrimp...Stuffing to start and then the Pork Ravioli with Herb Sausage and Cream Sauce and the Beer Marinaded Pork Belly Risotto with Fermented Garlic for main course. The food sounded great on the menu and looked amazing with lots of decoration and little accompaniments (the little nut and papaya salad was great!) but we just found it a little bland and not to our taste. Alcohol was pretty pricey too and we ended up having a couple of expensive craft beers because they're the only beers they do. Personally I prefer good old Taiwan Gold! The final bill came to around $1400 Taiwan or £36 but you could spend double that with ease if you decided to splash out. I recommend trying the big department stores for good places to eat instead.More

Eating dinner solo tonight and after exploring the night markets and excellent street food over the past few days, this location popped up and I thought I would give it a try - and I am glad I did. It has the feel of a...higher end “western bistro”. I took a seat at the bar, where the bartender greeted me warmly (and with good English). I started with a basic cocktail (constructed with great precision by the bartender), and ordered up some dinner. I ordered the cuttle fish in XO butter sauce and the “daily meat” special, which was described as a lamb in curry sauce (but oh so much more, see pic). The cuttle fish was excellent, like a Provençal style preparation with capers, olives, and grape tomatoes (sorry I didn’t get a pic, I hadn’t eaten since breakfast, *grin*). Delicate and delicious. There was a bit of a wait for my main, but the bartender (“Enza” - I think he is a manager) apologized and provided me with a sample of an Ibercio ham they had on display and were carving - excellent (and a nice touch for the delay). My main arrive and I was pleasantly surprised with the presentation and the dish (see picture). The curry sauce was excellent and subtle, with a few surprises. What I thought was hummus on top, was actually horseradish (whoops!, there was hummus on the bottom). The falafel wasn’t very good, the pita served with it had a smoky taste that was very good and complimented the dish very well.More

It serves delicious Taiwan-French fusion dishes sourcing produce, meat, dairy, and other ingredients almost exclusively from area growers. It’s beautiful, refined, full of surprises and at the same time affordable. When coming here, it feels like home; the food, atmosphere and staff come together to...make an unforgettable experience! (Don't miss their cocktail selections)More

Must try daily seafood set! Also great taiwanese pasta(risotto) and appetizer. Unique experience of local culture. Their passion and hospitality always make my day. It's a very popular spot to local people, must make a reservation first.

I was very impressed with the decor of the restaurant and the efficient service of the wait staff. The coffee was ok but not as hot as I normally like to drink it. Our group had 3 different risottos and one red curry crab pasta....The rice was well cooked but all tasted a little bland. The chef was very happy to create a dish not on the menu for someone in our group who was a vegetarian. My favorite dish was the truffle fries.More
