It is my fourth visit to Aqaba and I am always happy to return to Formosa. Nice atmosphere, very good service and the food is excellent. Today we had duck with pancakes, and it was very tasty. I highly recommend. Best

一次自己去一次跟朋友去,菜的味道真心太走样了(不管是中式、欧式或者美式中餐,都没吃到过这种味道),有些菜做的更像是汤。而且最悲惨的是份量极少,米饭也要付费。如果不是想吃中餐快崩溃了,没必要去,因为是镇里唯一一家(以色列边会比较多的选择)。强制的10% 服务费。I am from china and this is probably the "weirdest" taste Chinese food I have ever had (compared to authentic Chinese, European or American Chinese food).
