Outdoor seating: no
Food Quality: 4.5 out of 5
Service: 5 out of 5
Recommendation: High-Value Teppanyaki with wide menu selection.
Chamonix is a chain teppanyaki restaurant run by the Wowprime Group. They are known to deliver high quality dining experiences at each of their restaurants. Chamonix is no exception. At the flat rate of 980 NT a person, you can enjoy a full 6 course meal: appetizer, bread and salad, soup, entree with sides, and dessert with beverage. At under 1000 NT, it is a fair value for the meal you are receiving. You can also choose from a different combinations of entrees and sides, that a return trip could offer a whole different experience. It would be difficult to exaust the menu in few trips. I recommend Chamonix as a safe bet for quality teppanyaki at a bearable price. I have yet to find out if the Taipei 101 teppanyaki priced at 2k+ is worth its weight. For now, Chamonix is high up on the list, their food paired with their excellent service makes this place a solid leader in Taiwanese Teppanyaki restaurants.

When you sit down at the Teppanyaki tableside, you are greeted with this ambient tablespace. The soft blue glow makes it seem modern, sleek, and mesmerizing. You are given a side of butter for the bread, chopped onion, mayonaise, and salt to use as condiments throughout the meal.
I got the mediterranean salad, which I did not know which part of it was mediterranean. They did not even use roman lettuce, goat cheese, or goat cheese. They had two pieces of seared tuna, which was pretty nice, but the rest is that underdressed big leafy mess you usually are served as a "salad" in Taiwan.
