Excellent food from an extensive menu of poultry, fish, lamb,pork, beef, and vegetable dishes. Different enough from Szechuan, Hunan, Cantonese, to satisfy the desire for variety in Chinese cuisine.

When I came to town to visitor 2 years ago, my friend brought me to Formosa. I had the hot and spicy minced chicken(314) and it was amazing. I came back this week and we got delivery. We ordered several things that were outside our...More

I came here for dinner with a friend on a Friday night. I'd say it was less than half full, so the service was appropriately fast. The place has nice furniture and upscale decor, which seemed a little fancier for the feel of it as...More

First the place looks awful on the outside. Its a conversion from another era, maybe 1970. It looks sad from the outside. I didn't want to risk eating there. Maybe ok, but after reading other reviews, decided to stay away
