Great food, as expected

We arrived for dinner at 7pm on a Saturday night and faced a 60minute wait. No problems because there are heaps of shops to check out nearby. We returned after 30 minutes and our ticket number was almost up! The staff gave us menus so we spent 5 minutes working out our order and then (perfect... read more

I do not find the food here special as compared to other branches worldwide. A very long queue for seats and order. Not necessary to have it in Taiwan. Original Xiang Long Pao is my favourite

We were there before 10am and waited for about one minute only. After we had our meal, the queue got longer. Food was very nice and the service was indeed very good. Went to the washroom and it's super clean. We sat and chatted for a little while after our meal and were not rushed out by anyone. Very good... More

Whether you are in Taipei or any one of the other world-wide locations of Din Tai Fung, you owe it to yourself to eat there! The soup dumplings are a classic. While you wait for your table, you can watch them being made to exact specifications. Learn how to hold them in a spoon and savoringly draw the liquid into... More

The Dim Sum and service was very good, try and get there early to avoid the tour bus rush as this is a very popular place. Would eat there again on my next visit.

I got there around 1700. The place wasn't very full. The food is very good and the service even batter: when I ordered too much food, the waiter asked me if I want to have only small dishes instead of big ones. All in all very good experience !

The best surprise was "No Queue" - we opted to share a large table (12 seats, 4 separate parties) and waited less than 5 minutes. Impeccable, super friendly service, delicious dumplings and very reasonable prices. We'll be back!

Long que but short waiting time before being served varieties of gourmet din-sum at very reasonable price.Place looks timid but clean and service is polite and efficient. Recommend and worth a try if you are looking for delicious traditional chinese breadfast in a fast lane!
