VISITOR RATINGS & REVIEWS
not every day that one discovers a Yunnan/Thai
restaurant on the streets of Taipei. The owners of
this restaurant are best friends; both have Yunnan
ancestry, and they enjoy cooking great Thai food.
As a result, their dishes are technically Thai, but
with a southwestern Yunnan influence. One of the
owners of this restaurant, Yin Kim, emphasizes that
the freshness of their ingredients is their secret
to making perfect dishes. The Steamed Lemon Fish
(NT$199), for example, is extremely fresh and juicy.
Other popular dishes include Moon Prawn Cakes (NT$149),
Coconut Chicken Curry (NT$129), and Pepper Spicy
Chicken (NT$129). The interior design of the restaurant
is simple, and therefore does not easily attract
fashion-conscious young people. However, if you are
looking for exceptional Thai food that is reasonably
priced, Gold Sand Tower will not disappoint you.
