An inviting old-world ambiance and delicious food have earned the Yuan Yuan Restaurant a loyal following among discerning diners. Located in the Grand Hotel, the restaurant seats up to 100, with 32 tables and one private dining area. The square wooden tables are evenly arranged and paired with elegant stools. The décor is tasteful without being ostentatious, and the staff beckon with a warm welcome, recalling the feeling of a northern Chinese inn.
The restaurant has an open kitchen, so patrons can see their food as its made. The menu brings together an array of northern Chinese fare, from dim sum and light snack dishes to noodles, bing and dumplings. House specialties include dumplings with soup inside, chicken soup, spring rolls, crispy "crab shell" pastries (stuffed with scallions), chow mein, steamed dumplings, stir-fried rice cake, fried dumplings, braised noodles, stir-fried vegetables, and other popular dishes. Yuan Yuan is also famous for its steamed rice cake with red beans.

REAL Chinese FoodI came with some friends for Chinese New Year. Yes, "Grand Hotel" is one of the most 'must visit' in Taipei. You can find several good spots inside, including some restaurants....and also this one. I enjoy it as a place to feel the Chinese taste with super nice view too. Sometimes you can see some planes arrive and departure from Songshan Airport. Enjoy the place!
Not everyone is happyPeople have high expectations of the Grand Hotel, given its exalted status in Taipei society. The Yuanyuan serves food from South China, mainly from Hangzhou and Ningbo (Zhejiang Province). The baked crispy suckling pig and honey glazed pork is delicious, the lion's head (minced pork in cabbage leaves) is not so good. People are often critical of deviations from ideal regional cuisines, but if it tastes good, eat it.
DeliciousWe ate here while staying in the Grand hotel, but would recommend it for a visit even if it is out of your way. Our favorite dishes were the shrimp with garlic, the beef with chilis and the szechuan noodles. Good wine as well (which is not always easy to find in Taiwan).
Super food in a super traditional impressive locationSuper food in a super traditional impressive building! The grand hotel is on a mountain in the city overlooking the river and Taipei! The restaurant is traditional, high end but very good food! Don’t forget to make a walk on the floors of the hotel! Impressive!

Opulence and History - a majestic hotel in TaipeiThe Grand Hotel in Taipei lives up to its name. It is like an opulent palace and has a rich history. It’s grand in scale and has a superb restaurant on the roof with breathtaking views of the city below. The food was superb. We were served course after course of delicious local dishes ranging from shrimps, fish and chicken with vegetables. Each dish was delicately flavoured and beautifully presented. An evening to remember.
