Tokyo Curry & Bar 東京咖哩林森店 Review

Japanese curry is one of my favorite foods. It can be thick, spicy and full of flavor. Tokyo Curry&Bar 東京咖哩林森店 has absolutely the best Japanese curry in Taipei. I’ve tried about 20+ different places in Taipei and it’s the best curry by far.

My favorite here is the fried chicken curry. The chicken is hand breaded, seasoned and then deep fried. When you bite into it, the chicken is super crispy, yet light and juicy. Probably one of the juiciest pieces of chicken I’ve ever had.

The curry comes out thick, flavorful and a little sweet. They offer a special hot sauce that they make themselves that mixes in perfectly with the curry, but is extremely strong so should be used cautiousuly.

I’ve tried the non-fried curry here, and it’s not the same experience. You’ll want that extra crispy texture that brings that additional layer of deliciousness. Everything here is made fresh and all the fried food is breaded in this restaurant which is why everything is extra crispy and delicious (not pre-made supermarket quality).

If you come here with bags, you can store them in the metal lockers located directly behind the seat.

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.
