TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Michelin-starred Cantonese restaurant Three Coins in Taipei City became the latest establishment to be affected by the coronavirus pandemic, as it announced Thursday (March 26) it would close for two months of redecoration work.

Numerous hotels and restaurants across Taiwan have suffered because of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, announcing early repair work, temporary closures, or even a complete end to business.

Three Coins, located in the capital’s old city center on Hengyang Road, was due to celebrate its 50th anniversary this year but decided to go ahead with a major redecoration project lasting from April 1 through May 31, CNA reported. However, the report added that on May 9-10, Mother’s Day weekend, service would be still be provided, as many reservations had already been made.

The establishment, marked by calligraphy on a large transparent panel covering the front of a six-floor-tall building, has received a Michelin star two years in a row. Cantonese cuisine and Hong Kong-style dim sum are its specialty.
