Been there more than ten times, mostly with my foreign friends (Asians, Euorpeans, and Americans) and honestly every one loves it-especially the signature dish! So if you are a tourist visiting Taiwan and have limited time, and/or mostly stay in Taipei, you can pick this as your must-go restaurant. But if you have more time and are more into local... More

This restaurant is always full of people, waiting at the front entrance. I guess 30 minutes is probably the average waiting time. If you have a reservation, it will help a lot, but still, they will wait till all your group members arrived, then arrange the table for you. The food is excellent, not just delicious, you don't have to... More

We went dinner here in Taipei and we waited 25 minutes before being seated. We had several dishes and with around 1000 NTD we had dinner (2 people) with a good amount of food. The place is very simple and the service is quick, maybe too quick. There is a little bit of wait. The food is very good, amazing... More

Part of the novelty of dining at Din Tai Fung at this location and going out of the way to do so was because it is the original. Nothing too special about the place. It was great being able to see inside the kitchen where you could see the masters at work. Didn't necessarily seem to be the cheapest place... More

There was always a line outside of this place, except in off hours like late lunch/early dinner. The night we went had a 40 minute wait listed, but it only took 20 minutes for us to be seated. When you put your name in they give you a menu (they had lots of English ones) and an ordering ticket so... More

This place is the Original/ Big Daddy of the Din Tai Fung's globally. Din Tai Fung is a world renowned Michelin Star restaurant, the moment you step in and taste their food you will know why. There is ALWAYS a huge line to get here, without a reservation it is almost impossible to get a table. So get yourself one... More

There may be a line out front, but don't fret. It should be quick and there are many shops nearby that you can kill some time. Also, it's OK if you don't speak Chinese or English here as most of the employees speak other languages as well. For instance, our hostess spoke Chinese, English, Japanese, and French. This may be...
