This restaurant is arguably Taichung's largest dining spot for Japanese cuisine and sake, and its traditional Japanese decor, music and uniforms conjure up Japan's Edo Period. Operated by attentive management and wait staff, Jiang Hu Ding represents a new direction for the Tai Ryo Maguro restaurant group and maintains its reputation, with highly experienced chefs using fresh ingredients to prepare a wide range of grilled items, hot dishes, set meals, sushi selections, hot pots and other items.

This is an ideal place for small groups but, if you're on your own, dining at the bar area is also relaxing and comfortable. The indoor and outdoor dining areas are also perfect for sipping sake or tasting some special dishes, and diners can ask chefs to grill their food or do it themselves. This excellent atmosphere makes this an ideal venue for kicking back and relishing freshly-prepared Japanese cuisine.
