The nu-e-bar electron elastic scattering cross-section was measured with a CsI(Tl) scintillating crystal array having a total mass of 187~kg. The detector was exposed to an average reactor nuetrino flux of 6.4 X 10^{12} ~ cm^{-2}s^{-1} at the Kuo-Sheng Nuclear Power Station. The experimental design, conceptual merits, detector hardware, data analysis and background understanding of the experiment will be discussed. We will present final resuls with 29882/7369 kg-days of Reactor ON/OFF data, on the measured cross-section, the standard electroweak parameters sin^2 theta_W and (g_V,g_A), the test on charged-current neutral-neutral interference, as well as limits on neutrino magnetic moments and charger radius. We will also present constraints on non-standard interactions based on this data set.
