Din Tai Fung lives up to the hype and the Taipei 101 branch is nice and spacious so you usually don't have to wait long. Our kids enjoyed watching them make the dumplings and oddly enough they had a strange obsession with the "dumpling guy" mascot. Worth a trip.

This is one of those "must try" foods while in Taipei. Order the traditional steamed buns. You won't be disappointed. 20 between two people plus side dishes is a nice way to enjoy dinner.

Two locations of Din Tai Fung in Taipei are fantastic for soup dumplings. This is not expensive, is very easy, fun, active eating. Do not miss Din Tai Fung if in Taipei.

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
