4 Best Restaurants in Tainan

Where and What to Eat in Tainan

Tainan is the oldest city in Taiwan, and its long history has created a diverse and well-stocked dining scene. Alongside plenty of international options, you’ll a find tasty local cuisine. Lacking the cosmopolitan nature of Taipei, there aren’t so many swanky fine dining restaurants. However, you can still find excellent, high-quality dishes, and generally at a fraction of the price you would pay in Taipei.

The restaurant scene in Tainan is famous for its amazingly friendly and efficient service, as you’ll see if you try the places we’ve highlighted on this list of the best eateries in the city. Some of our selection might look fairly basic from the outside, but the fantastic food makes them stand out above the rest.

Corner Steak House

The fillet minion at the Corner Steak House is exceptional and is served with vegetables and mashed potatoes. Much of the rest of the menu is Italian cuisine, all expertly prepared using first-class ingredients.

The restaurant is located near the National Cheng Kung University, in a narrow, nondescript alley. The service is famously friendly and professional, and the prices are very reasonable for the quality of the experience.

Fu Lou Restaurant

Fu Lou Restaurant is popular with local families because of its diverse menu and fast, friendly service. The menu includes Taiwanese, Chinese and Japanese preparations, mostly at very reasonable prices.

The seafood dishes are the main attraction, with a live seafood station available. The menu is available in English, Japanese and Chinese, which is fortunate as few of the staff speak much other than Chinese. It would be a great shame to miss out on a meal here just because of a language barrier.

  • Location: No. 300, Section 1, Yonghua Road, West Central District, Tainan City, Taiwan 700

Large platters of fresh fruit are also available, also at excellent prices.
