Nice food

Visited this branch as I heard it's better than the original one at Yong kang street. I find it to be as good as the original shop. Q is quite long but the service is efficient and friendly. Xiao long bao is very nice.

To be honest, I had been trying out DTF over the world. Every time when I eat there is that the time I have no better options. Do not mistaken here, their dim sum is far more better then the one you had in Shanghai. The Shanghai one really sucks, My concern is that, you couldn't taste the spirit of... More

I enjoy DTF no matter which location in Taipei I have been, however there's something extra special about being at 101. Take the red line MRT, pop up above ground and you see 101 right above you and Din Tai Fung in front of you! Highly recommend

It was my first time in any Din Tai Fung branch and the experience was well worth the short wait (originally indicated as 40 minutes, our group of 4 got in probably in 15-20 minutes. Going in a group has the advantage that you can try much more food while still leaving the restaurant stuffed. Between the 4 of us,... More

4 stars for overall ( price, quality, atmosphere...) but the food here is quite bland to me, just like most of Taiwanese food I tried in Taiwan or other places. However, if you are visiting Taiwan, you must try it once.

When in Taipei I always go to one of the Din Tai Fung restaurants as my daily staple, I had to be in the 101 area so I went to this location 2 times during my week long stay. We have a Din Tai Fung in Bellevue WA but still not as good as any of the locations in Taipei

I visited Taipei for three days and I had dumplings for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It couldn't get enough. Now out of all the places that I ate dumplings Din Tai Fung was definitely the best. However I hate you now Din Tai Fung, I all dream about is dumplings.

With good feedback from everywhere, I have decided to try out the Ding Tai Fung here and compare the difference with that in Msia. It wasn't a great dining experience for me. I find the place packed with tourist and not locals. The food taste rlly basic, nothing special. The food were a bit plain for me. The dumpling at... More
