This restaurant offers a surprising range of delicious, reasonably-priced cuisine, thanks to Executive Chef Chang, who started cooking at 16 and has over 20 years of broad culinary experience. His deep-rooted passion for finding new ingredients and developing creative cuisine covers a variety of appetizers, entrees, tempura and desserts. There are business lunches (NT$368-580, about 8 items) plus all sorts of other set meals (from NT$600) and a chef's selection menu (from NT$800). --By Niang Chen, translated by S. Ying
