If you’re a fan of Din Tai Fung’s dumplings (Xiao Long Bao), then a visit to the original Din Tai Fung in Taipei is a must, because you get to brag to your fellow Din Tai Fung fans that “Yes I have been to the original Din Tai Fung!” We arrived at 6pm sharp on a Saturday night, I took... More

I love Din Tai Fung and have been to a few in different countries. The original of course has great dumplings, great service, and is worth the small wait!

The dum sim melts in your mouth with that burst of liquid as you bite in - and their dipping sauce of vinegar and ginger is perfect. The red bean dessert takes like red velvet!

I am from Malaysia and I had very high expectation of the Xiao Long Bao there because Din Tai Fung has a lot of good feedback. So, we took a very long queue (45mins) to get our seat. We ordered Xiao Long Bao (Soup Dumpling) and two others. Me and my bf was so disappointed of their Xiao Long Bao.... More

We have Din Tai Fung restaurants in my country but it was nothing when compared to the original Din Tai Fung in Taipei. Was on holiday in Taipei for 4 nights and have lunch at Din Tai Fung (Xinyi Road) twice. The "XiaoLongBao" dumplings were really good and my recommendations are the Steamed Truffle Dumplings and the Steamed Taro Dumplings.... More

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
