Why Shin Yeh 101 is special ?
One might not normally classify traditional Taiwanese food as "gourmet" cuisine. However, a trip to Shin Yeh Restaurant inside Taipei 101 could change all that. Though there are a lot of other Shin Yeh branches, Taipei 101's outlet really distinguishes itself by offering a world-class dining experience high atop one of the world's tallest structures. Besides the excellent view, the restaurant offers meticulously-prepared, gorgeously-presented meals that take everything, from texture and healthiness to a balance of flavors, into account. The restaurant is MSG-free and their food and beverages are prepared with the best local ingredients. Beautiful food presentation and a breathtaking location are part of a memorable experience at Shin Yeh. Lunches and dinners respectively start from NT$880 and NT$1,680, with six set-menu meals rotating on a seasonal basis.
How to get to Shin Yeh 101?
The restaurant is on the 85th floor of Taipei 101 tower. Getting to the 101 is easy. Take the MRT (Taipei Metro) all the way to Sun Yat Sen Memorial Station, or City Hall Station in Xinyi District, in the modern eastern part of of the city. From there, it's a short 10-minute walk to the building.

Tips for you
Our meal at Shin Yeh was marked by a series of small, delicious dishes, with interesting combinations of ingredients and creative, artistic presentation. The service was fine, although there were some bobbles caused by the hybrid nature of the venue and the international nature of the clientele: for example, our pre-dinner cocktails arrived just seconds before our starters. A meal of the quality we enjoyed would be the subject of rave reviews in its own right, but because we ate it at a window-side table at the top of Taipei 101, it was particularly special. The view of the city at night was a magical accompaniment to fantastic food and a nice wine. The window-side tables incur a minimum order, but eating here is a special occasion, and pushing the boat out suited us. Highly recommended.
