Great food and fantastic service

The food was top class and the service was excellent. There was quite a huge crowd and we had to wait about 30minutes outside. Definitely worth the wait though!

Had Din Tai Fung in many places and this was truly the best. Dumpling skin had a chewy texture. Food not greasey and not msg loaded. The wait time was 2 hours on a Monday for lunch. Lunch turned into afternoon tea by the time we sat down. While great as it was, will not go again for the wait.

Michelin 1 starred, long wait, waitstaff with walkie-talkies, all smart and upmarket. And yet - I was underwhelmed. I had the xiaolongbao etc. Maybe my taste buds are jaded so it was too subtle for me - but it was 单调 (bland). Now I will be red arrowed like mad (If they had that function here). I enjoyed pot stickers... More

I've been to a number of DTFs in many countries and the queue is as iconic as their xiaolongbao, so no surprises to see a large crowd outside the small entrance of this flagship outlet during lunch hour. We had lunch twice at this outlet during this Taiwan trip, so going with a small party (just the 2 of us)... More

This is the first original Din Tai Fung Store. We tried several different places in Taipei, Singapore and LA. This place somehow is still the best. If you craving for great dumplings, you need to go to this place. We also ordered Siaomai, those consist of dumpling with a piece of shrimp on the top. Yes...that is their version of... More

Probably the best dumplings I have ever had. The ginger and soy sauce on the side is fantastic. Actually ordered a second dish

On a recommendation from a friend, I made a stop to eat here. She highly recommended the soup dumplings. I was by myself and the wait was real long for a table. Especially around lunch time. So I decided to get them to go. I wasn't disappointed. They were very tasty. I got a few of the pork and the... More
