Though we've eaten in other Din Tai Fung locations around the world, we HAD to visit the famous 101 branch. Quality was excellent, as expected. We'd known of the long wait time: 70 minutes was the projection when we arrived. The kids were hungry so we opted for their take-out counter instead and took our food back to our hotel... More

Got s to do the truffle ones. Da bomb. Very clean. Go between lunch and dinner on the weekdays. General no wait. Weekend at lunch... Forget about it. Over an hour wait.

We purposely made a trip to the restaurant as we have din tai fung in Singapore, so as to make the comparison. The food was indeed more delicious and the service was good. The waiters/ waitresses were very attentive to our needs.

Had lunch on a weekend which means the restaurant is very packed. but the service and food quality is still good. some menu items taste slightly different from Singapore's DTF but it might be due to local cultural differences. Overall, it's a great place still. DTF is still DTF.

If you plan ahead, arriving early you can avoid the first come, first served queues that grow quite lengthy. This great restaurant with branches now even in Bellevue, WA, our other home town, is renowned for its delicious dumplings. Also good soups, vegetables, and chicken/pork dishes that you'll enjoy. Super efficient service makes the meal enjoyable but the tables and... More

The restaurant is fairly big, with lots of seating, but with their worldwide popularity, the place is packed before 12pm. Luckily we came earlier so there were no queue. There are even 6 private rooms in the restaurants. Service was fast and the waitresses were attentive and accommodating. When seated, the waitress gave us the menus and served us tea... More

While waiting (15 mins.) to get in I placed my order (stir-fry water spinach, fried rice with prawns and egg, 5x steamed vegetable and ground pork dumpling, 5x green squash and shrimp xiaolongbao (total 528NT$ = ~13€)). Only one of the dishes was disappointing - not bad but quite average. Others were delicious and totally worth the money! It might... More

Famous for their xiao long bao and Shanghainese cuisine. They serve varieties of Shanghainese cuisine, dim sum, desserts etc. The price is reasonable and top notch for their services.

I found this to be very good. We went at 5 pm just to put our name on the "list" because we had heard that an hour wait was the norm. They called us in about 10 minutes which was really surprising - and threw us out of synch with colleagues who were due to show up at 5:30. Regardless,... More
