Nicely cooked crispy squid, bao and belly pork have a good taste. The cosy atmosphere of this restaurant makes customers feel relaxed and have a nice time. Formosa Restaurant is recommended for the energetic staff. The fabulous service is something these restaurateurs care about. This place offers you dishes at good prices.

A great place to eat, with plenty of space/tables. Much larger than expected from looking outside. The decorations are awsome, especially the lower room with umbrellas. Very authentic ️The food was very tasty (my wife and I had the Braised Pork Belly with a side of rice each).I would say you only need one small bowl of rice between 2.The cocktails were very tasty, (i recommend the Blue Hawaii) Now for why i only did 4 stars...The waitress was very friendly but could not understand English very well, and we could also not quite understand her. We asked for 2 Pork Belly's and 2 sides of rice. With much confusion between us all we thought she got it correct. Only one main meal came to the table. We called her over and she said ooooh you want 2 mains? (Not sure why we wouldn't, but ok?)In saying all that, she came back with another after only 5 minutes.Thank you for the quick correction, we will be back again.
Had a surf n turf fried rice option. The surf consisted of a diced shrimp and the turf option was a tiny piece of diced meat. The flavour was horrible Had the Tempura Prawns for entree and was more vegies than prawns. Wouldn't dine there again. Tiny portions So left hungry and called into McDonalds.
Food really nice. Drinks service slow.
