Our last visit was over 3 years ago. Newly renovated, cleaner and more organised. We ordered half a goose (there are five of us) and each one of us ordered a rice noodle. The quality of the rice noodle was not as good as before and a bit oily but taste good. Price gone up and taste not as good... More

First of all, when you come to this eatery, please be warned it is not a full-menu and full-service establishment; this place is about plates of duck and goose and small accompanying bowls of noodles or mifen (and I recommend the latter), and that's it. The menu is about four lines on wood boards hanging on the wall. If you... More

As terrible as the first experience. Come back this place because of a friend insisted to visit.... Well, and she is now totally agree with my opinion on the food quality after the one n the only experience (second for me) she will ever have. Wonder why so many customers? Bad taste?

Special food at Xiemenden. This resttaulant serves only duck and twe kinds of noodle. But it is firsttime for us to have such dericious duck. It seems chicken as singapole chickenrice but more salty and good fat. Price is a bit expensive. Leg 200TWD 1/4 600-700TWD 1/2 1200TWD For couple 1/4 and twe noodles are enough. Usually long queue but... More

A goose restaurant even though it's brand proclaims it is a duck restaurant. Given the family's penchant for goose (seeing how we can't consume them in singapore) we held high hopes for a good meal. Alas, our expectations were too high and we were left disappointed by the fatty and rubbery goose meat we ate. Unfortunately our threshold is measured... More

The duck was just okay, nothing exciting about it. Staffs were rude, they looked like they were frustrated with their job or they did not get paid enough. This was one of the most expensive duck I've ever tried, it's like you pay Mercedes price for a Volkswagen, definitely not worth it. Not going back and definitely not recommending it... More

The stew goose is nothing to shout about. The servings are over proportionate, 1/4 goose, half goose or 1 whole goose. They never consider small groups of 2 or 3 people and its not cheap for a quarter goose. The waiter serving has no patience despite my turning up way after lunch and there is no crowd, they just seems... More

I really like the taste of their goose and vermicelli even though I'm sure there are some amount of MSG in there. There's no menu but a couple choices written on the wall including your choice of noodle or vermicelli and amount you want to spend for goose.

這是一次對食店服務不好的經歷,來台北幾次,第一次來吃,兩人入到店內,隨即被問要米粉還是麵,還推銷我們吃1/4鵝$600, 我們問他有沒有餐牌,他說沒有,再問他有沒有其他份量選擇,他說"只有"$300,500,600, 我們食量不大,點了$300,因為看到前枱有碟小的鵝肉以及根據店員所說以為那是$300,最後來了一大碟我們吃不完,再看看前枱的單據是標了$100, 就算我們點兩碟$100都足夠了,這次來台灣十天,先五天在台中所有服務行業人員都很親切,耐心,誠實,到了台北第二天便遇到了這事,是台北變了嗎? 3/5是食物質素,很好吃 0/5是服務 跟要來吃的說,正常每人$100份量已經足夠 I would like to tell you the staff will hardsell you to have the$600 portion(1/4 goose), it is really too much for two, actually they sells $100 portion that they will not tell you but sell you $300,500,600, so if you are not too hungry you may order the $100 portion.
