Your Neighborhood Taiwanese Style Food


Every time we walk into 5 Joy Restaurant, we feel like we are going over to our aunt’s house for dinner.

5 Joy Restaurant is a small restaurant in the Beach Park plaza strip mall bordering the San Francisco Bay in Foster City, just south of the Highway 92 San Mateo Bridge. 

They serve Taiwanese style Chinese food along with some Shanghainese.

Do not let this seemingly unremarkable, noisy restaurant fool you. It is a popular get together for family and friends where people exude joy and embrace the culture. If you are hoping to have a romantic date here, be prepared to turn your date off with deep fried Stinky tofu.  This place serves up tons of it and wrecks of it when you walk in sometimes.

Our absolute favorites are:
Fried chive “ravioli” is like a Scallion pancake with chives, egg and rice noodles stuffed inside. Served very hot out of the fryer. Yum!


Scallion Pancake is super-hot and full of scallions.  Crispy crust and subtle flavor made it good.

Dry Fried String Beans -Simple, fresh and good veggies. Not too greasy and just enough flavorings.



And much more! It’s delicious food which guarantees ultimate comfort!
