Flavors is the one and only Swedish Restaurant in Taiwan. We loved the food is always great with clean fresh flavour, the decor of the restaurant is simple and warm. The service and the characteristic of the owner is very friendly. We haven't eaten a Swedish foods before, so we try all the Traditional Swedish specialties.
