We were greeted at least 4-5 by any staff as we made our way to and from our table. Their smile was sincere. There seemed to be a supervising manager watching over the waitresses in every section and he would jump in if he felt the attention to service was lacking. We took a number at about 6 but was...

This place has non stop ravings of their epic Xiao Long Bao so we can't miss this during our last travel to Taipei. We're prepared to wait as Din Tai Fung is famous for the long queues thus waited for nearly an hour at the waiting area. Doesn't feel that long as we walked a little around the mall before... More

Food is nice though waiting time may be long during peak hours. Try to go there earlier. Otherwise, remember to get a number for the queue, select the food and submit your list to counter.

You need to get yourself here right now! My only problem was that, as a solo traveler, I wanted to order everything... so I did. And then I ate it all. Oops. I had a little trouble locating it at first, but it's a giant restaurant, and as soon as I asked someone they pointed me in the right direction.... More

Din Tai Fung is always a good (and cheap!) option when in Asia. The Xiao Long Bao is wonderful, as well as the fried rice with shrimp and egg.

If it is your first time visiting Taiwan and would like to try local food. This is the place you can go. Din Tai Fung has the best steamed dumplings and noodles. They offer other Taiwanese dishes such as drunken chicken, fried A vegetables, fried shrimps etc. It's not expensive. The only thing is you have to queue up for... More

We had to wait about 80 minutes to get seated but during that time we just visited the mall. The service and food was really good but I felt a bit stressed because of the atmosphere. It was very crowded and loud.

You will probably have to wait a little while before being seated but the staff take your order at the door and the service is very fast. Good quality food, friendly service. Definitely the best food we had in Taipei. Not a cozy or relaxing atmosphere but the food makes up for that.
