Once again the best dumplings I ever had

I've been twice to taipei and 4 times to Din Tai Fung. The food is excellent on a relaxed atmosphere and at the end the price is quite decent. Just go there 30 min in advance to take a ticket since the line can be sometimes very long.

Be prepared for having to wait a long time, we got ourselves a ticket to wait for an estimated50 minutes. After walking around and coming back, 35 min later, our number had passed, but the very firendly personnel managed to get us a table. Food is very good, large choice so you always end up ordering too much. You can... More

I went here with some friends for dinner during a recent trip to Taipei for a trade show. We had seen the reviews and wanted to try this out. We wandered around the basement level of Taipei 101 before we found it. The entrance is near the MRT station exit, so it would have been easier to find if we'd... More

The food in Ding Tai Fung was delicious. The service was good and quick. The only setback is that you have to wait for at least one hour to get inside. Overall, it was good.

Most of the times, this restaurant is busy and would require some 20-40 minutes of waiting period. So when you visit Taipei 101, first make yourself a booking, esp. at peak meal times. This restaurant is always busy, yes, since the food and service is awesome and is definitely worth the wait. The steaming dumplings while check all the boxes... More

This was great for my dumpling making partner. Kids loved watching the experts revel in their craft. It is quite an amazing eat to watch. Their speed and precision makes it look easy, when in fact, dumpling making is a difficult art. The prices are a bit steep comparatively to most Taiwanese spots, but you are at Taipei 101, so...

Always curious to find out what's the rave about the Xiao Loong Bao from original DTF in Taipei. OK, is worth the wait and I have to agree the food taste better than DTF in my country. Service was speedy and food served was steaming hot and fresh!

You can't miss Din Tai Fung as you exit the MRT station to enter Taiwan 101. It's located right at the building entrance. This restaurant has achieved legendary status primarily due to its Xia Long Bao. Other items on the menu are delectable as well, so it's worth the trouble to return several times. Avoid the large lunch crowds of... More

I would recommend xiao long bao, other types are normal. The queue is very long so come early and take the number first. The menu is available in English too. Staffs are friendly
