Many people won’t remember this restaurant with their name, but with their taste. It is from those restaurants which are famous for their tasty food, whereas most of the restaurant try to make their name through complete restaurant experience. This restaurant is in Gulberg, opposite to Gulberg Pace. They also have a network of Suzuki vans to take the ready made food at different places of city and serve there. Right now I’m sharing my experience with Taoyuan Chinese Restaurant below:
Well this is the most attractive part of the restaurant. This is the part why people go there and why this restaurant is still running. I’ve always got same dish in front of me every time which was 19-B soup. It’s not like that they only serve this soup but my friends who took me there, go there only for this soup. I’ve come to know there that 19-B is not an item number of that soup in Menu; it is the Chinese soup’s category. One can get this 19-B flavor in any Chinese restaurant. It is mixture of their four top Chinese soups. In Taoyuan Chinese they are chicken, prawns, mushrooms and hot ‘n sour I guess. Soup was no doubt very tasty and one get a piece of any one of above in each bite. I’m not a soup lover type of guy but still I like the taste of it.
Service is not up to mark according to hospitality point of view. But if we look through the speed of service then it is much better. Waiter are rather very casual, it also gives the impression that they mostly deal in Take away and they haven’t work hard for their restaurant business. Though I’ve seen many customers liking their food and visiting Taoyuan Chinese Restaurant.
They have two portions in restaurant. One is upper which is decorated in a better way then one which is under it. Still I’ve seen mostly people who prefer to sit down stairs. Kitchen door opens in sitting area, and if you just got a chance to peep through that door, you would rather not try the food. Kitchen’s condition doesn’t seem much hygienic but here in Lahore people go for taste. One won’t get a clean and neat restaurant impression but still it is full of people to enjoy the food at Taoyuan Chinese Restaurant.
