Taiyo Tomato 太陽蕃茄拉麵 站前本店
Taiyo Tomato Taipei Station Restaurant 太陽蕃茄拉麵 站前本店 Review
Taiyo Tomato Restaurant 太陽蕃茄拉麵 站前本店 has several locations in Taipei. There’s one by Taipei Main Station, Zhongxiao and another by Taipei City Hall Station.
What I like about Taiyo Tomato 太陽蕃茄拉麵 站前本店 is their broth. If you enjoy a delicious tomato bisque, you’ll enjoy eating at Taiyo Tomato in Taipei.
Secondly, they have tofu noodles that are actually really good!
I ordered the tomato ramen with cheese and chicken for NT$240. I added on a honey yogurt which was pretty good.
The honey yogut at Taiyo Tomato Taipei 太陽蕃茄拉麵 站前本店 comes up as regular yogurt, topped with honey. I tried it and thought it was really tart. Then I mixed the honey in to the yogurt and that made the dessert really good.
On my second visit, I was blow away by how good their tofu noodles are! It’s healthy and delicious so I had to upgrade my review from 4 stars to 5 stars because that’s how good the tofu noodles are! If you’re looking for vegan friendly restaurants in Taipei or gluten free restaurants in Taipei, you’re going to love the tofu noodles at Taiyo Tomato!
Quality: Taiyo Tomato Taipei 太陽蕃茄拉麵 站前本店
The overall quality of the tomato ramen was good. The restaurant was very neat and organized. They even had hair ties available at the table for people with long hair. Just so you can enjoy eating ramen and not worry about “ramen hair.”
I got the chicken tomato ramen with cheese. The meal had your choice of noodles, but those weren’t translated in English. I heard they had tofu noodles but I ended up just getting the standard ramen noodles.
Inside the tomato ramen was a delicious tomato bisque style broth, noodles, cheese, chicken and some green vegetables. The overall proportion of the noodles to anything else ratio was about 80-20. I would have accepted less noodles for more balance but overall it was still tasty.
The chicken was okay (3/5), I liked the cheese (4/5) the broth was amazing (5/5) and the greens were good since they had a crunchier texture (4/5) that contrasted the rest of the meal.
Service: Taiyo Tomato Taipei 太陽蕃茄拉麵 站前本店
The service was fast, helpful and polite. I felt welcomed as soon as I walked in. The waitress spoke enough English for me to order, but there was difficulty when trying to select the type of noodles.
Most of the menu had English translations with the exception of your preferred noodle type. I wanted try the tofu noodles but I ended up getting the standard noodles. If I had just pulled out Google translate it wouldn’t have been an issue. On my 2nd visit I just asked for the tofu noodles and I’m glad I did. They tasted even better than the regular noodles and they were healthier!
After ordering my food, it was at my table in less than 10 minutes! The food came out fast, hot and delicious! This speed may have been because there were only a few customers in the late afternoon but I was still impressed.
I’ve uploaded a photo of the Taiyo Tomato Menu Taipei 太陽蕃茄拉麵 站前本店 below for you to check out. You can translate the noodle part prior to going if you’d like to try it.
Best of all, they are very considerate! if you have long hair, they have hair ties at the table. If you don’t want to get your clothes dirty, they’ll provide a paper bib.
Value: Taiyo Tomato Taipei 太陽蕃茄拉麵 站前本店
Everything was reasonably priced and you’ll spend less than NT$300 on your meal. I really liked how this place was right next to Taipei Main Station (the touristy area) and didn’t have a 10% service charge. Even though they didn’t have a service charge, the service was still great!

Overall Impression of Taiyo Tomato Taipei 太陽蕃茄拉麵 站前本店
I enjoyed the meal and gave it an overall rating of 4/5. I will definitely be back to try more of their food and will update this post. Be warned though, the tomato ramen is very acidic and may cause acid reflux. I’ll roll that dice to eat here again.
They also run a promotion where you can win a ramen voucher for leaving feedback. Even though I’m leaving this detailed review, I

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 tax 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.
