Stepping into this restaurant takes you back in time to early-1920's Taiwan, making it a perfect spot for photographers. Located in an 80-year-old house, Good Day is decorated with big red lanterns and old waxed paper umbrellas, creating a nostalgic and relaxing ambiance. It's also an ideal destination for enjoying a mix of Hakka and Taiwanese culture and cuisine.

There are a variety of main dishes to choose from, including vegetarian and kids' meal options. Each entree is served as a set meal with three appetizers, tea and dessert. There are free refills available for coffee and tea, with no need to order a set meal and menus are updated every season.
