The wait sucks, but if you go during off hours, it's a fast way to satisfy your taste buds and by North American standard, it is relatively inexpensive for the service and quality of food!
Din Tai Fung constantly delivers highest food/service quality and consistency. The truffle xiao long bao is to die for. It's worth to queue up for 1 hour to get a seat, and it is not difficult to understand why once the food is flowing. I will definitely return again.
This is not where you go for a leisurely dinner. Din Tai Fung has long wait lines but once you're inside the food and tea flows fast and furious. Grab your chopsticks and don't put them down or you'll lose out on that last dim sum. Staff is attentive and everywhere. We preferred our experiences at Howard's and The Bird... More
Lots has already been said about Din Tai Fung so I'll just mention two things about this location. 1) In the mall right outside of the Taipei 101 exit of the Taipei 101 station---very convenient if you're passing through on your way to Taipei 101 or the mall. 2) Very well organized! We actually had already eaten a full meal... More
It's amazing there are many people queue up when we arrived at 11am. So amazing they clear all the queues so fast. Amazing that the service is super good, imagine so many people in the restaurant. And all dishes are incredible amazing!!! It is much better than Din Tai Fung in Bangkok.
I first had XiaoLongBao in Shanghai 2009. It's been hard to find during my travels since. When I hawsers about Din Tai Fung I knew I'd have to eat here. Our host gave it high reviews for quality and service. They were right, everything was excellent. We had a wide variety of dumplings, vegetables and soups. Everything was extremely hot... More
We went at 11am, no wait, empty restaurant and great service. We ordered dumplings, vegetables and steamed rice dumplings (sweet). The food was ordinary compared to other ding tai fung's we had overseas. The dumplings were undercooked. But the rice dumplings were surprisingly good.
..everything is so systematic here, from the tasty food to the service from start to end. Don't be put off by the queue, the place is big enough, so the table turnover is pretty fast. I give full marks to their open xiaolongpao kitchen, and the neat and standardised outfit plus service gears all the waitresses are fitted with. All... More
The queue was pretty much expected even around 2PM. It didn't last that long though and we were seated pretty soon. The food was great-the xiao long bao dumplings, the beef noodles, and many more. Food was served hot and fast, with the staff quickly refilling teapots with a smile. Service was quite impressive considering the non-stop crowd of people... More
