Food is nice though waiting time may be long during peak hours. Try to go there earlier. Otherwise, remember to get a number for the queue, select the food and submit your list to counter.

You need to get yourself here right now! My only problem was that, as a solo traveler, I wanted to order everything... so I did. And then I ate it all. Oops. I had a little trouble locating it at first, but it's a giant restaurant, and as soon as I asked someone they pointed me in the right direction.... More

Din Tai Fung is always a good (and cheap!) option when in Asia. The Xiao Long Bao is wonderful, as well as the fried rice with shrimp and egg.

If it is your first time visiting Taiwan and would like to try local food. This is the place you can go. Din Tai Fung has the best steamed dumplings and noodles.

We had to wait about 80 minutes to get seated but during that time we just visited the mall. The service and food was really good but I felt a bit stressed because of the atmosphere. It was very crowded and loud.

You will probably have to wait a little while before being seated but the staff take your order at the door and the service is very fast. Good quality food, friendly service. Definitely the best food we had in Taipei. Not a cozy or relaxing atmosphere but the food makes up for that.

I won't say much more other than if you look for delicious Taiwan dumplings this is IT! Can't be better, you can't go wrong. It is a culinary experience outside anything you could even dream about, IF you have a deep rooted desire for this kind of food. As I do. I visit maybe 3 times a month, here or... More

The dumplings here are probably the best we have ever had. The dumplings themselves are like a work of art and they taste great! The place runs like a well oiled machine. Be ready to wait 30-50 minutes for a table, but it is worth the wait!
