With so many things to see and do around Taichung, it’s little wonder that the west coast city is now a popular weekend trip for many Taiwanese. And with all those tourists flocking to the city, the local restaurant industry is booming. So without further ado, here are some of Taichung’s finest dining establishments.


A great spot if you’re craving some comfort Mexican style food. There’s a huge selection of wraps on the menu with a wide variety of fillings with a real international flavor. The food is really good and the ingredients used in each filling are fresh and well prepared. For an affordable evening meal with friends, this is the best spot in the city.

Mori Teppanyaki

You’ll struggle to find a more upscale teppanyaki place anywhere in Taiwan. Yes, this place really is that breathtaking. The decor is out of this world and the service from the staff is five-star quality. Fortunately, the food is in keeping with its illustrious surroundings. A little more expensive than most teppanyaki places but well worth the money.

Chillies Indian Restaurant

Chillies is the place to go in Taichung for Indian food. They actually have two branches and both are quite good. There’s a real authentic feel about the place with traditional decor throughout the dining area and incredible aromas coming from the kitchen. And although many assume that Indian food is spicy, there are plenty of mild and non spicy items that even kids can enjoy.

Copain Italian Fine Food

This stylish restaurant is one of the many places in Taichung that serves Italian food but it’s one of the only ones that has such a reputation for authenticity. The pastas are cooked to perfection and the pizzas are heavenly. The staff here are pretty welcoming too and pay special attention to young kids making it ideal for family dinners.

Jerry’s House

Whether it’s brunch, lunch, or dinner, mealtimes at Jerry’s House are a great experience. Serving up what can only be described as Aussie fusion food, this place has everything from crispy chicken to burgers all of which are cooked to order. It’s a pretty relaxing place with friendly staff and some chic decor. Make sure to try the indulgent desserts!
