This restaurant serves the best dumplings in Asia. They are light and tender, served in an exceptionally clean environment. All of the kitchen staff are dressed completely in white, everyone is very friendly and conscientious. The bathroom is the nicest, cleanest in Asia. Service was great. Loved everything.

Very clean, even the bathrooms! Of course, we came here for the food. Arrived near opening time we had a 5 minute wait for them to set up the table. We had a party of 12! I've only been to the ones in LA and HK. This one is better than those. Finally tried the truffle xlb. Everything was good.... More

This is THE dumpling experience. First time I tried Din Tai Fung was in Kuala Lumpur and I couldn't believe how extremely delicious the Xiao Long Baos were. Next I tried it Beijing. Same thing! Then I had the chance to try them in their original inception restaurant in Taipei and didn't hesitate. Boy, what a delicacy! I recommend the... More

I think we have a few DTF's in the states now but I've only been in Taiwan. The xiao long bao is good and unlike many Chinese restaurants, you get the same product every time since everything is measured with precision. Service is top notch, they even make sure the change they present customers are all new crisp notes and... More

This is the older location and feels more local than the much more commercial 101 location. Dumplings are amazing here and at the 101. Prepare to wait 50 minutes in either location.

I've been to a few din tai fung restaurants around the world but I have to say this original one is the best. Expect a long wait sometimes two hours or more but I think it's all worth it. Every time I'm in Taipei I would come to this restaurant. After dtf, we would make our way to a very... More

Having tried Ding Tai Fung in Singapore, I was curious to find out if the standards differed between the Singapore branches and the original Taiwan outlet. I was not disappointed! We went early, around 11+ am on the weekday in order to beat the crowds - we didn't have to wait for a table! We ordered the usual - Xiao... More

This is the original Din Tai Fung restaurant and I only go there for the experience is the best among all the locations. Be sure to go before 11:30 am if you can for the line and waiting can get pretty long. Go with friends so you get to try all kinds of dishes.

We had to wait 20 minutes, apparently it was a quiet evening! But there's plenty of shopping to do in the same building or you can watch the preparation and cooking and be grateful you are not in with all that steam. Excellent service and, when something was being lost in translation, the waitress went to find help. First-rate food... More
