Taiping Restaurant is a perfect place to be during lunch time (any time) as produces continuously fresh food and a great diversity of dishes from Japan, Thayland, China and much more. The price is fair and the service is excellent.

Every time I come to Rio I visit Taiping. Delicious Chinese and Japanese food in a cozy place. The service is always good and they also have a good option of caipirinhas and sakes. Try the garlic shrimp on the stick.

To be in a shopping mall this food was very good, we shared a big yakisoba and it was good for two person, no doubt! I would go here again when in Rio Sul after a long day there!
