Well worth the waiting time

Even if this restaurant served nothing tasty but the pork and crab roe xiaolongbao it would still be worth the waiting time. The taste is delicate, the dumpling skin improbably thin and strong, the whole thing mouthwatering. But luckily there are other delicacies - noodles, starters (green beans... read more

I ordered Xiaolongbao, Shaomai, Fried rice and Sauteed Spinach. All dishes are very delicious and price is reasonable. I'd like to visit this restaurant again.

I have tried Din Tai Fung in HK and in Korea but this was my favorite of all. The xiao long bao was great! the green beans is so good together with the shrimp friend rice. I don't recommend the noodles with peanut sauce... it was the least favorite among the orders we've had. The service was great too and... More

Din Tai Fung has always been overrated since it only had a store near Yongkang Street. The steamed dumplings are not as good as other restaurants in Taipei (such as those on Aiguo E. Road). Now all the Din Tai Fung restaurants are so overcrowded and the wait is at least an hour most of the time. The worst part... More

Din Tai Fung is a must visit to any visitor to Taipei. I can't compare to the other branches but this one made for an excellent and yummy visit! All branches are busy but this one can be especially busy with tourists since it is conveniently located at the base of Taipei 101 tower. However, the staff are so well... More

Lots of people and tourist, in addition to conference attendees means long line to get into the restaurant. We waited for 35 minutes to get a table. We tried some signature dishes and they are all very good. Services are good and they have some servers which can speak various foreign languages which will make it easier for visitors from... More

When going to Taipei you really can't skip this restaurant! It has been awarded with one Michelin star and when you enter the restaurant you know right away why; the food tastes heavenly, the staff is extremely friendly and everything is just perfect! If you go in between lunch and dinner the lines are usually a bit shorter than normal,... More

It is exactly like any other Din Tai Fung in the world. The food is good and service impeccable. But if you are already in Taipei, you will find that there are a lot more other local options who serve food which is just as good or if not better at a much cheaper rate. It is overly priced compared... More

This is a chain restaurant; I am very fond of their outlets in Singapore so I tried this one out in Taipei too. The food here is wonderful.Try the hot/sour soup, the delicious meat/fish and soup-filled dumplings. The pork schnitzel is unfortunately without ginger (the ones in Singapore are with the tangy ginger taste, which I prefer), but is also... More
