Try the pork wonton dumplings in black vinegar. We ate at the Marina Bay location and the Paragon in Singapore. it is quite a show to watch the chefs making the noodles and dumplings . First class operation. There always seems to be a lineup.

This is a chain you will find all over Singapore, but the food is healthy and reasonably priced. They are located in the mall "hawker stalls". You will be so grateful for the cleanliness and air conditioning.The service is good but you may have to wait at peak times. Perfect place to eat when you are jet lagged and want... More

They should advertise the Din Tai Fung as a Singapore attraction, rather than as a Restraunt. Every time I am in Singapore, I head for the nearest Din Tai Fung for lunch. This time it was their restaurant on Orchard, in the Paragon mall, right across the road from Ngee Ann City. Like all Din Tai Fungs, there is always... More

Part of a chain the "original" of which in Taiwan is regularly voted amongst the best in the world. I certainly wouldn't say that, but for a small restaurant buried in the food court of a shopping centre, it is incredible. Pork and Crab and Pork Dumplings that are so light the dumpling seems to explode on the tongue. Inside,... More

The food was tasty, I wish they have more variety, though. Especially for the dumplings. I like their shrimp fried rice, shrimp was really tasty: fresh & plump. Service can be a bit spotty during peak hours, & a lot of the wait staff don't speak English so it's difficult to communicate. Tip: avoid coming here at peak lunch/dinner hour.... More

This restaurant is one where you have to wait to get in but its worth the time spent waiting in line. The Shiao long bao are best here. no one comes a close second. The steamed dumplings in XO sauce are spicy but very tasty. The joy of eating here is in the fact that everything comes straight from the... More

Its the dimsum place with a lot of reviews. The dimsum is very good and the xiao lang bao is good. Its the dimsum with soup inside it. Don't forget to order the chinese noodles as they apparently make their own noodles. The price is very reasonable and you can get a good fill for a decent price.

As commented by other reviewers - expect to wait (but for us only 15 mins on a busy Saturday evening) but be rewarded with excellent noodles and dim sum, very fresh and hot, and good value. The nicely hot tea comes for free, and regularly. But its the bustling atmosphere, and the cooking-as-theatre apparoach that makes this a great experience.... More

A regular favourite of mine when in Singapore. Delicious food in a very hectic environment, and great value for money. Be prepared to wait to get in, however this place is 100% worth the short while that you do have to wait. Will definitely be returning to this amazing place; a great location also right in the heart of the... More
