You'll really never had a Chinese dumpling, or Xiaolongbao, until you have tried the Din Tai Fung xiaolongbao. Every time I am in Beijing, this is a must destination for me. My favorite is their steamed pork - I can eat two baskets of this luscious, juicy, dumpling in one sitting. Originated in Taiwain, Din Tai Fung branches from New... More

Din Tai Fung delivers. Their hot, delicate, meaty dumplings arrive fast. We had shrimp/pork and mushroom, plus a side of cucumbers with chili, though the chili was sweeter than it was spicy. I also had their recommended double boiled chicken soup. The flavors are simple but the chicken falls off the bone - a great lunch accompaniment. The prices felt... More

We were in this restaurant based on recommendation from our guide book and tripadvisor and it was definitely worth it. Dumplings but also the wonton soups are amazing, service is good (was our first waitress speaking good English!) and the experience is rewarding. Try if you can!

We found this place by accident when we went exploring Shin Kong Place (which by the way you should definitely visit as it is one of the biggest malls i've ever seen). You have to go all the way up to the top of the mall and there are many nice restaurants. We happened to see that this place was... More

Went here for dinner and loved it! We didn't make a reservation and didn't have to wait for a table. The good was all delicious. It's a very clean and busy place and the staff were all great.

When they lived here this was my kids' favorite restaurant, and when they come back to visit it is the place that all of them want to return to more than any other. They love the dumplings that much. Yes, as other reviewers have noted, the other food is good too, but for kids -- up to teenagers -- the... More

This Taiwan institution now has outlets in Beijing and Shanghai. It serves classic, perfectly prepared dumplings in tempting varieties. Friendly service, bustling atmosphere, peek at the busy chefs. Try steamed soup dumplings; xiao long bau (pork and goose liver); shredded hairy gourd and jelly fish (MUCH nicer than it sounds). Finish with special shaved ice with mango and condensed milk....

Din Tai Fung at Shin Kong Place is an Oasis in Beijing. Service is excellent and the food is simply up to perfection. Don't just try their dumplings. We all know it is so good but it will be a crime if you do not order their mushrooms, pork chops with fried rice and sauteed vegetables. Din Tai Fung puts... More

Like TuCan Sam, we followed our noses to this place. Literally, we were starving and needed to eat. We were able to pick up the delicious smells coming from DTF from the street, outside of the mall. It was the best find. The dim sum is incredible. The signature crab dim sum and sweet and sour spare ribs are delicious.... More

We have Din Tai Fung back home in Seattle but the wait is over an hour for a table so we decided to go while we were in Beijing! The atmosphere was great and the food was as amazing as ever! The juicy pork dumplings are THE BEST! My kids enjoyed it so much we went back 2 more times... More
