Overpriced, Low Quality and Poor Service2/5 Overall From the price, food quality and service, Da Che Lun Sushi 大車輪火車壽司 disappoints at all levels. You'll typically see a line out the door with people wanting to eat here. Don't trust the line. It's all other tourists. 2/5 Service: As soon as you sit down at Da Che Lun Sushi 大車輪火車壽司they hand you a menu and wait there for you to order. It felt rushed and they recommend their specials. The specials didn't look that good but we tried one anyway with disappointing results. 2/5 Scallops were overcooked and tasted like rubber. I wouldn't get it again 2/5 Chopsticks are cheap and had a lot of splints 3/5 Cheese croquettes were okay, but wouldn't get it again. 3/5 Sushi: The sushi is served with thick slices on a small ball of rice. No matter how you eat it, the sushi will collapse. It's too big for 1 bite. The sushi at Da Che Lun Sushi 大車輪火車壽司 was straight up fish and rice and you'll have to add the wasabi. 2/5 Shrimp roll special; it was one tempura shrimp in an egg wrap filled with mayonnaise and lettuce. It was edible but I didn't like it. It's too big to eat in 1 bite so it will also collapse when eating 3/5 Ambiance is fun and lively. The train is a fun touch, but the actual table eating space is very cramped. The restaurant is very tiny so when you go pay the bill you have to dodge everything and everyone. 2/5 Value: It's surprisingly very expensive at tourist prices in the Ximen area. We spent about 700-800NT per person while you could get a better experience for about 300NT or less per person at Kura Sushi or Sushiro. Da Che Lun Sushi 大車輪火車壽司 is located in the Ximending walking area and easily draws a crowd of tourists because of their food train. It seems unsanitary since the food is not covered and people are sitting very close to that train.

Horrible foodThe sashimi we had gone bad, even the vege they put under the raw squid.The conger is the worst i ever had in my life. I even doubt if that's a conger or just some sweet fish taste meat. Mixed salad had a very weird taste too. Romaine lettuce is not fresh either. This restaurant was one of my childhood favorite, didn't expect it would go this wrong. Price is expensive too as you spent so much on moldy, unfresh food. My stomach ache right after we stepped outside of this restaurant. This one might be on your tour guide of XMT but really I would rather go for street food at least won't be too wrong with well cooked food. Oh . many dishes of them have no price tag and their staffs keep selling you expensive dishes when you order then you have to keep saying NO NO NO! VERY ANNOYING!!! DON'T EVER COME AGAIN for your own health.
Colorful Japanese CuisineThe service is really nice that the waitress will introduce the dishes for you and recommend those you might want to try. Meal are cooked after order so you have to wait for a while. The raw fished are fresh and the Hokkaido Scallops are well roasted. Worth a try and bring your foreign friends here to try.
Delicious food and vintage atmosphereI live in Taipei and have been visiting this restaurant several times. Usually come here with my foreign friends. They enjoy the food and the atmosphere. Good value and highly recommend it.
Too crowded and noisyA famous Japanese restaurant at Ximending. Delicious food, especially Sashimi (raw fish) and Nigili (slice of raw fish over vinegared rice). But too crowded. I have also visited another Da Che Lun Restaurant at Chongqing S. Rd., It's much much better. Food quality: 4.5 / 5 star (fresh and delicious) Dish serving speed: 5 star (very fast) Atmosphere: 2 star (very noisy) Seat: 2 star Service: 3 star Price: 3 star
