Homestyle taiwanese

WELCOME

Zai Lai is a casual Homestyle Taiwanese Spot serving Family Favorites including Rice Bowls, Noodles, Street Eats, and Taiwanese Breakfast. We are located underground near Columbus Circle. Look for entryways at the corners of 57th St and 8th Avenue.

Chef Edward Huang serves homey, soul-satisfying Taiwanese food inspired by family cooking and his adventures in Taiwan. Each dish has a history, telling a story and conveying life. “Read Our Stories.” Traditional recipes demand traditional flavors, which is why Zai Lai sources its ingredients conscientiously. “Read Our Philosophy.

Zai Lai was named after a common Chinese farewell, meaning “come back soon.” As a child visiting Taiwan, Chef Edward would hear “Zai Lai” at the end of the night after savoring the richness of family time and the delight of home cooking. “Zai Lai” represents how a simple meal served with love and care can nourish our lives.

Homestyle food is best eaten within a family environment. We’ll give you a smile when we see you. We’ll do our best to remember your name. We’ll make you some nourishing food. And we hope you enjoy and come back soon.
