I went to this restaurant several times while studying at NTU in Taipei. Din Tai Fung is the reason I started loving dumplings. Every piece is handcrafted and the large selection of different flavors is exceptional. The reason dumplings are not that popular in Germany or other parts of Europe is that they need to be particularly well made in... More

Their food is delicious and restaurant is very clean with good service. If you only can try few restaurants in Taipei or Taiwan, this is one of them you must try.

While this is a noted landmark in Taiwan/Taipei (several places ion the franchise) and the dumplings are usually quite good I would suggest travelers to look for alternate places to get the Taiwan style dumplings. The service is mechanical and rushed with more focus on throughput in a very large dining floor rather than enjoyable meal experience. I will agree... More

One thing about Din Tai Fung: they are consistent and well trained in their locations, both in their food and in their service. Having said that, their restaurants in Asia do offer a better experience than the ones in the US. We have tried their locations in the LA areas and also the one in Seattle and those locations do...

This is where I have my family gathering since childhood, even before it became international well-known, already so popular. Now, you need more patient (because you definitely need to wait on line) to get in there. Even though, there are many branches in Taipei right now. This is the original one. It is in Younkong district. If the line make... More

The food here is absolutely delicious. The flavors are so unique and delicate - there's no way you'll be disappointed. It is questionable whether a 90+ minute wait is worthwhile, though.

Not many people inside when compare with other branches. Waiting time took about 10 minutes for us. We went there during non-peak hour as advised by many comments in this page. The food are good with good services. Inside is clean.

This restaurant always has a wait. The weeknight wait wasn't near as bad as the weekend wait looked to be. The food really is worth it. The restaurant offers a range of dishes, soups, buns, dumplings and noodles. We had a wide variety across the group from vegetables to desserts and each item was extremely tasty. It is best to...
