Come get some tasty sanks from this great teahouse. It's weird how a restaurant will spend literally millions of dollars on decor and architecture, but when it comes to written English in the menus, on the walls etc, no-one seems to give a rip whether or not it's even remotely correct! My sense of humour for these kind of mistakes is waning... I'm starting to get the impression that English isn't very highly regarded in Taiwan. That's a shame when you're an English teacher :( Posted by Hello

compared to the translation in that hospital pic above (about x-rays), the menu translation looked excellent lol

I would love to Anonymous, but the problem is that they prpbably wouldn't care. It's like the Chinese T-Shirt craze that South Africa went through a few years back. If you had a misshapen character or bad grammer on your T-shirt, no one would notice and no one would care!
