I'm a Taiwanese and I'll say if you're looking for delicious Taiwanese food, you came to the wrong place. the portion was small and the service was bad. the sauce on their Oyster Egg Omelette tasted like it was diluted. the waitress reached for my empty plate from my behind without saying a word and of course scared me. Not worth the money at all.

I came here because of homesick but now I feel so shamed they called themselves "Daiwan Bee" (which means authentic Taiwanese flavour) while Taiwan is actually an island full of lovely delicious street food.

We were staying at the W hotel, first night exploring the place at the footsteps, we passed by this little cafe during the day time, so we decided to be adventurous and give this place a try. All thumbs up! One of us have just been travelling around Taipei, and we asked the waitress to recommend some noodles to us. The waitress was patient and honest, she asked if we would like dry or with soup, we were open to all kinds, as long as it is authentic. At the end we ordered Oyster Egg Omelette, Sticky rice pudding with the red sweet sauce, we think the small portion was just right, as glutenous rice will fill you up very quickly, so to leave room for other excitements. Spring onion pancakes, Boiled Dumplings, Spicy beef noodles (in soup), Dan Dan noodles - loves the peanut sauce and spicy balance. I think another different bowl of Very spicy beef noodles, beef was very tender, and really quite spicy. Taiwanese homemade sausages. After we tried 3 other places' bubble teas, we all agreed this place is the most delicious. We went back for another meal just before we left London. It was very good. Very satisfying.

Food is a bit too pricey and doesn't tastes at all great, staff weren't really friendly as well. Wouldn't recommended it to friends

Dated 05.10.2013 at about GMT20:00. We thought would like to have dessert after dinner. So first thing we thought of Old Tree, 26 Rupert Street, London W1D 6DH, England (China Town) as tried to their take away cakes and drinks. It's really nice from first visit with the customer service. This time we sat down for their dessert and have no idea they served warm food too which we thought maybe next visit will come for dinner then dessert after. But after a BIG unwelcome service from this waitress (obese woman) who work at Old Tree. She was so ruled and told us that if you not ordering warm food, you guys shouldn't sat down for just dessert. and minimum spent per head for sitting down customer it's GBP15.00. and told us that if we insisted to occupied their table and not leaving will charged us 10% per head. 10% to us it's nothing but got annoyed with the waitress (obese woman) impolite service. So we decided to leave because one of the waitress lady came by to apologised and being polite. so we being professional decided not to argued with the immoral waitress and just left. Sorry that they will lost a bunch of customers as we thought will always visit the restaurant and recommended to our friends/relatives/colleagues. but with the bad experienced. A BIG NO to visit Old Tree ever again. There's many restaurant served good food with excellent service. so won't regret to crossed this Old Tree out from our list.

Went here yesterday, wish I went to Silk Road in Camberwell instead. BIG SIGH. Dan dan noodles were made with store-bought flat flour noodles that were super soggy, in a TOO peanuty sauce. Amiga's deep fried tofu was also very rubbery. Granted these are not traditional Taiwanese dishes, I'll give em a pass. But then we had the steamed sticky rice and pork starters (mee gow) and they just were a massive fail. Not enough rich, savory pork goodness, too much sweet red sauce, and also about the size of a biscuit. Not 4 pounds worth of food! I am sad. So so sad. The people around us who ordered some real dishes looked plenty satisfied though. 2 stars, for the superb pearls in the bubble tea!!!

Many night market street stalls in one little shop, just a short walk from Piccadilly Circus tube. Authentic taiwanese street food. Personal favourite: Taiwanese Beef noodle soup, Stewed Eggs, Oyster Omelette. Shop is small and need to share table, but quite delicious if you are looking for real taiwanese taste. Bubble Pearl teas are brewed not powder premixed.
