Taipei restaurants cater to a broad range of tastes and budgets, from the simple street food stalls in the many night markets up to fine-dining establishments with multi-Michelin-starred chefs. With its discerning population, particularly in the business districts, the quality of dining in Taipei is generally very high, even among the back-alley local restaurants with a menu listing just 1 item. A number of such places have become so successful that they have expanded across the city, the country and, in some cases, even the world.

The trend in Taiwan is to eat out rather than cook at home, so the choice of restaurants in Taipei is much larger than we have documented here, with new establishments opening all of the time. We’ve picked out the best of the bunch, including lesser-known gems and world-renowned dining experiences, making it easier for you to enjoy your time in the city with the finest food available.
