Da Che Lun Sushi 大車輪火車壽司 Review

2/5 Overall
From the price, food quality and service, Da Che Lun Sushi 大車輪火車壽司 disappoints at all levels. You’ll typically see a line out the door with people wanting to eat here. Don’t trust the line. It’s all other tourists.

2/5 Service: As soon as you sit down at Da Che Lun Sushi 大車輪火車壽司they hand you a menu and wait there for you to order. It felt rushed and they recommend their specials. The specials didn’t look that good but we tried one anyway with disappointing results.

2/5 Scallops were overcooked and tasted like rubber. I wouldn’t get it again

2/5 Chopsticks are cheap and had a lot of splints

3/5 Cheese croquettes were okay, but wouldn’t get it again.

3/5 Sushi: The sushi is served with thick slices on a small ball of rice. No matter how you eat it, the sushi will collapse. It’s too big for 1 bite. The sushi at Da Che Lun Sushi 大車輪火車壽司 was straight up fish and rice and you’ll have to add the wasabi.

2/5 Shrimp roll special; it was one tempura shrimp in an egg wrap filled with mayonnaise and lettuce. It was edible but I didn’t like it. It’s too big to eat in 1 bite so it will also collapse when eating.

3/5 Ambiance is fun and lively. The train is a fun touch, but the actual table eating space is very cramped. The restaurant is very tiny so when you go pay the bill you have to dodge everything and everyone.

2/5 Value: It’s surprisingly very expensive at tourist prices in the Ximen area. We spent about 700-800NT per person while you could get a better experience for about 300NT or less per person at Kura Sushi or Sushiro.

Da Che Lun Sushi 大車輪火車壽司 is located in the Ximending walking area and easily draws a crowd of tourists because of their food train. It seems unsanitary since the food is not covered and people are sitting very close to that train.

Money In Taiwan

Tax Is Included In The Price

All displayed prices in Taiwan are the actual price. Tax is already included and for large purchases, tourists visiting Taiwan can get a 5% Taiwan VAT refund at the airport Tax Refund counter. Some shops offer this service too, but they will require your passport.

Taiwan Is Cash Only (For Most Small Shops)

The primary payment method for all transactions in Taiwan is cash. It’s very rare for small shops to take anything other than cash. It’s more common to see places accept the Taipei Metro Card as payment rather a credit card.

Supermarkets and convenience stores in Taiwan (7-Eleven, Family Mart) do not accept credit cards (at least not American credit cards). You can only make purchases by cash or by using your pre-loaded funds on your EasyCard.

Using Credit Cards in Taiwan

If you want to use your credit card in Taiwan, make sure to check if a restaurant in Taiwan accepts credit card in advance. When a place does accept credit card, it will typically be Visa or Mastercard. It’s extremely rare for a place to accept Discover and American Express.UberEats, HonestBee, Deliveroo and FoodPanda are Taipei Food Delivery Services where you can order food directly to your airbnb or hotel using a credit card.

Exchanging Money in Taiwan

You can exchange money at the airport or any bank in Taiwan. The rates vary from bank to bank and it can be a hassle to get a good rate. For additional information, check out my Exchanging Money In Taiwan Guide.
