The best hot and sour soup on the planet. You have to spurge on the truffle dumplings. They're to die for. Their fried rice is also excellent. Only problem was waiting to get in.

101 Branch continues the same or better quality food than its mother restaurant. A long wait for 2 is expected during dinner hour (90 min), but the food was excellent. "Made-to-order" dumplings and buns. Be sure to try the house special spicy sauce. The taro buns were so light, hot and tasty. Better than the mother restaurant in Xinyl. Need... More

The best Din Tai Fung I've experienced. The xiao long bao here definitely tastes much better than at other locations, but the star of the show were the spicy dumplings. Try combining that red-hot sauce with XLB... and you get a party in your mouth.

We were here for a dinner. How come you visit Taiwan without a meal at Din Tai Fung which originated from Taiwan. We were during weekday. Long queue yet the queue is fast. The service is fast.

I loved the xialong bao the most. It was so much tastier than the one in Singapore in my opinion. However, if you plan to eat here, better go a bit earlier for dinner rime as the place is always packed and you will definitely have to wait.

Average wait of 45 to 60 mins. Food was fairly good with XLB being average and the fried rice very fragrant. In our opinion, the truffle XLB is not worth the dime at NT450 for 5 pieces. Service was excellent though, our tea was promptly topped up throughout the whole meal. Wait staff are mostly young, pretty and energetic.
