    Wow. This is what Chinese food is supposed to taste like. Definitely try the wontons and the beef wrap. Amazingly fresh ingredients.

    Lovedddd this place. Went with a big group, so we ordered pretty much everything. The tofu dish, forgot what it's called, but get it! Delicious and great atmosphere!

    What can I saw that hasn’t already been said. The Dan Dan Noodles are amazing. I love the beef roll. The cold apps are amazing. Oh! And great bev selection whether you drink or not!

    Authentic Taiwanese food! I'd highly recommend this place. It can get busy for parking but it's a great area to hang out especially during the weekends when there's outdoor farmers market.

    One of my favorite places in all of LA. For vegetarians - must have the Dan Dan Noodles, the scallion pancakes, the 5-spice bamboo and the potstickers. All delicious!

    Bc of COVID, we ordered takeout. Tasty: beef roll, shrimp wontons, and dumplings. Pass: dan dan noodles were soggy and sauceless. Three cup chicken, minced pork and wood ear mushrooms were average.

    Highlights: pork minced bowl, spicy wontons, dan dan noodles, beef noodle soup, and eastern beauty tea. Skip the mapo tofu and scallion pancakes. Long line and bad parking situation.

    The service is fast-casual, which translates to unfussy food in a modest, minimalist setting. The spot-on Chinese options mean legit dan dan noodles and pork dumplings. Read more

    I’m always skeptical about eating braised chicken at restaurants, but Pine & Crane’s three cup chicken is soft, tender, juicy AND flavorful. For appetizer, don’t forget to add the beef roll.

    Beef noodle soup, dan dan noodles, and mapo tofu are all flavorful and delicious. Panfried pork buns are disappointing. Great loose leaf tea selection!

    Really enjoyed the Trumpet Mushrooms with the 3 cup rice. The mushrooms were earthy and meaty which paired with sweetness of the whole garlic cloves. The chili peppers added a hint of spice.

    Delish Taiwanese food. Get take out, drink a beer at the bar while you wait and then eat outside in the courtyard to avoid the line.

    Great ambience. Delicious beef roll. Spicy wontons, Dan Dan noodles and 3 cup chicken were all passable but not the best. Do not order the boba - it's watered down and not very flavorful

    Silver Lake is probably the hippest hood in LA. There's probably a huge overlap between the folks who are always at Intelligentsia who are also here.

    Dig into a spicy bowl of Dan Dan noodles and finish off with a soothing taro-milk tea with boba. Read more

    I'd go back for their dan dan noodles, cold appetizers, and sea salt cream jasmine green tea.

    Definitely good and would eat again but not necessarily must-have. Great selection of teas and drinks for an afternoon treat.

    It has a wait but expect nice staff and a lively atmosphere. I’d go again cause it was fun and good enough, but don’t expect to be impressed if you are used to these dishes in its native country.

    I loved, loved the spicy peanuts with it's chopped green onions and peppers. I could have easily eaten the entire bowl by myself.

    Minced pork on rice!!! DOOO IT!! I love everything on their menu, but the pork bowl is epic. Wait times are kinda crazy though.

    Haven't had Taiwanese food this good outside of Taipei. Ridiculously tasty mapo tofu, san bei ji, and pork pancakes.

    The spicy shrimp wontons could have been a bit spicier, but I liked how delicate they were with shrimp that were plump and juicy.

    The weird seating after you've ordered setup is a bit off putting put the food is amazing! Try the Mango Shandy.

    The three cup trumpet mushroom is so delicious - vegetarian savory dish that isn't over-loaded with sauce.

    Best Taiwanese food in the area without having to drive out to 626, but c'mon, $2 for a bowl of rice? Not cool.

    The beef roll and the mapo tofu were great. The rest of our food was mediocre and slightly too expensive. But the friendly service makes this a place I'd return to.
