Taiho Reviews

Taiho Google Average Rating



Performance and value are very high 4.5/5! Long Q! We ordered tan tan-men, yodaredori Chicken, Shanghai Shia-long-pau, Huigourou, potatoes fried, gyoza, and mapo-tofu. Two beer bottles. 10500Yen. For two.


It was so worth the wait!! Foreigner-friendly, the staff were excellent and the atmosphere was warm, busy and clean. The teridon was incredible; food came out super quick! Will definitely eat here again next time we visit Nijo.


A good Chinese restaurant with very friendly staff and large variety of Chinese recipes. I went there twice and went through Dumplings (very good), Mabo Tofu (as it should be, i.e. making you sweaty), Garlic Stir-fried Veggie, Boiled Pork Belly etc. I like the philosophy of the place to use only organic ingredients and eggs from free-range chickens (a rarity in Japan). Prices are above what you would expect for Chinese food.
