About Bando Banquet

The traditional “Bando” banquet is one of the ways Taiwanese entertain guests. Nowadays, this traditional banquet is the standard fare in weddings, religious ceremonies, housewarmings, and other important celebrations. The banquet is usually at least a 10-course meal, including appetizers and deserts. Drinks include soda and juice, but guests are free to bring their drinks of choice. Additionally, “doggie bags” are provided to take home any unfinished dishes. In this situation, it is customary to ask other table guests if they are interested in taking the dish first.

Bando banquets are usually held outside, on streets or in front of temples, and can range from a handful of tables to hundreds of tables. The food is cooked on premises. While there are variations of dishes, they almost all include an appetizer, seafood dish, fish dish, ham hocks, soup, sticky soup, sticky rice, and desert. They are normally accompanied by traditional opera performances or karaoke singing.

A full time Chinese/English guide will be present to introduce about the Bando dishes.
