This restaurant can justify its name as a "giant" in the Taichung teppanyaki market as it's been around since 1992 and has after more than two decades maintained its high-quality ingredients, cooking and customer service to attract a steady stream of foodie customers.

A full meal set here includes prawns, salad, soup, bread, vegetables and coffee or tea with a large variety of entree choices including Garlic Chicken, Sirloin Steak, and Australia Wagyu Beef, with prices ranging all the way from NT$780 to NT$7,180. Big Giant also provides a variety of high-grade meats not common at other teppanyaki eateries, giving this place good dining value. For example, the Australia Special Wagyu Beef and Australia Matsusaka Steak are both highly recommended entrees as the chefs here perfectly regulate cooking temperatures, resulting in exquisitely tender meat that retains original juices and flavors and will satisfy even the pickiest teppanyaki gourmand.
