Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I ordered the pork dumplings for quick lunch on a work break. They were the best dumplings in Dunedin by far - hand made? with a fantastic wrapper and flavoursome inner. Piping hot and on the table in less than 10 minutes. I can't wait...to bring friends back.More

First time here for dinner with two friends in this unpretentious eatery. Really loved the pancakes, get a plate to yourself as you won't want to share! Generous servings for the meals we had, lots of veges in the handmade dumpling soup which was really...tasty and too much for me to finish - you get souped out by the end! Would definitely go again as there was so much more to try on the menu. Only niggle was that the door took ages to close and as it was a cold wet night and our table was near it we found it cold. Lucky we had coats to put on.More

In a city where vegetables are not cheap or readily available this restaurant shines. Portion sizes are large and you feel better after eating here for some reason. Will definitely come again.

A very tasty, healthy, satisfying, lunch with simple but interesting flavours. Highly recommend. Cafe is small but warm and clean and inviting, right in the University zone.

The place is clean and inviting with a large outdoor deck. The menu offers a variety of Chinese and Taiwanese dishes though the curries don't exactly taste like the typical Oriental curry and resemble rather Indian curry. The pork mince with stewed egg rice meal...is a perfect comfort dish and the egg tarts are great too considering that there aren't many establishments offering the same kind of food.More

I always feel like I am treating my body well when I go to Formosa. Service is fast and friendly. Their food is delicious, fresh, sooooooo tasty and nutritious. I love their kale dumplings, in fact I think I am addicted.The pork belly is a...favourite too. And the Garlic parcels and kale parcels. To be honest I am going to take my time and work my way through their whole menu!! Gluten free and tasty vegetarian and vegan options available.More

I eat at Formosa at least once a week - it's my favorite place close to Campus because the food is excellent (and healthy) and the staff are lovely. Favorite dishes are the small stewed pork belly (not actually small, wonderful in winter), the summer...noodle with chicken, and the delicious chive crepe (either with or without salad).More

We arrived here just before closing and the owners were very gracious, offering us a variety of vegan options. The locally grown veggies and attentiveness to healthy cuisine made this a delightful find. Delicious Asian food!

We chose this restaurant on impulse as we passed it. There are plenty of vegetarian options (we're not always given an actual choice of dishes!), as well as inviting carnivore selections. The menu makes a point of using fresh, organic and healthy ingredients, and the...salad included grapes from the vine we passed under as we entered. The food was delicious, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals, which including some interestingly (in the best sense) unusual components. The nori-wrapped potato parcels were a real find. Our bill came to under $60 for three, including drinks, which we thought was excellent value for such good food.More
