Locals love Din Tai Fung Restaurant because you can never go wrong with its concise menu and consistent food quality. Most popular here is the xiao long bao, filled with a light soup and fresh succulent pork, wrapped in a beautifully thin skin.

Dumpling Fast Food of high quality!

The place is great and fascinating. Always a long queue around dinner time (5-7.30) so be prepared for some waiting time (10-15 mins.. the place is big and efficient). You will be deciding from the "fill out your self" forms which is also the menu when your waiting in line, and order when its your... read more

You need to go in with an open mind when you first visit DTF. When busy (which is frequently) you go into a bizarre queuing system where you are handed a paper order form and advised of your approx seating time and food service time. In most cases, this is conservative, and you get seated and served much quicker. Once... More

Just like the Din Tai Fung restaurants in other cities, this one lives up to its promise. Meticulous preparation and clean facilities are evident in the glass window that shows the kitchen workers creating dumplings and cutting vegetables and other ingredients. The shop is in the basement level of Paragon along with other restaurants. Service is quick and polite. The... More

Being Chinese, this place rocks with their simple fare. Nice environment in paragon but the waiting time is a killer so please plan in advance to wait. Try the pork cutlet and dumplings for sure

I like the variety of food they offer and the fast and professional service. Must have is the "Noodles in special sauce", some dumplings and a fresh lemonade.

First time I've been, as there is always such a long line. Was early this time and tried it. Wonderful food and pleasant surroundings. When I left, I noticed that the NY Times had once declared it one of the best ten restaurants in the world. Makes sense.

Omg- this place is amazing, and confusing. You get a little workbook basically when you request a table and check off all the different dumplings and sides you want. We had multiple greens, fried rice, pork, pork and shrimp and pork and vegetable and dumplings and every single one was delicious. The whole place is an experience- highly recommended!

We ordered the steamed pork dumpling and shrimp/pork dumpling. The taste of steamed pork dumpling may be 50% level of their Taipei headquarter. The stuff must practice more to make the inside of dumpling softer instead of hard. The shrimp/pork dumpling was OK. The service was good.

We decided to go native and try the local food. Whilst visiting the huge paragon center in Orchard street we came across this fine establishment and were very surprised at the quality and cost of the food. We had the shrimp soup and dim sung which was excellent. Take a tip and go for it.
