Super refined food

Been there several times over the last few years. Each Din Tai Fung in Taipei is stunning, really fine food with GREAT service. Just go!! You can trust my opinion, I'm married to a Taiwanese and spend 3 month a year in Asia. I know about Asian food

The original Din Tai Fung. Home of the xiaolingbao which earned their Hong Kong branch a Michelin star. Amazing. The food is fantastic and the logistics are very well handled to make the entire experience fantastic. Since Din Tai Fung is so popular, they've created a great waiting/ticketing system. You'll get a number, as well as a menu and order... More

This is probably one of the most consistent experience you will get regardless of which Din Tai Fung you visit, and the Xinyi one is no different!

If you love dumplings, you can't go wrong with any of their locations! Remarkably efficient staff--we had to take a number & wait (we went looking for a nearby bar to have a beer while we waited, but couldn't find one), & staff actually took our orders out on sidewalk before we sat down. May need to climb several flights... More

My friends and I decided to try out the dumplings at ding tai fung. we had to wait quite a while and finally were seated in a kind of rush. The waiter seemed indifferent to our requests even though we tried to speak Chinese, and had to keep asking for water, a forgotten dish, etc...the actual food was nice, but... More

It is a must visit, even just for a photo. If you intend to eat at the original (the first) Din Tai Fung restaurant, expect long wait times for a table. Especially so during a) weekends, b) meal times. The lines never, ever subside and this applies to all of the Din Tai Fung outlets. Food wise, it is the... More

While not inexpensive, especially in comparison with street/staff food, the xiao long bao are exceptional. Although originating in Taiwan, Din Tai Fung is now found also in the US (California and Washington State) as well as Australia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, and Thailand.

the wait is very long during peak hour but it is ok since there are 6 levels of shopping to walk about. Serivce is fast. Staff attitudes are not bad. Food quality - Excellent! Anytime better than the quality of Din Tai Feng elsewhere.

The Xiao Long Bao there are just amazing and the variety on offer superb. The best by far (but also priciest) were the truffle ones which even had slices of truffles inside. Amazing. The Crab Roe and pork ones were excellent too. Overall what a treat but ate too much!
