Must eat when in Taiwan. Best Xiao long bao. Go early as there is a long line. Reasonable price and great services

Had DTF all over the world but Taiwan is the homeland of this chain . On our way to sun moon lake and dropped by this restaurant. Had a private room which had a minimum order. Ordered most of their specials and they tasted as nice as the others in Taipei and the rest of the world. The dumplings are... More

I enjoy the extensive menu, the reputation of the chain and the visible kitchen. I've dined at the largest restaurant in Taipei as well as a newer location in Taichung.

I had the chance to eat at Din Tai Fun while I was in Taichung (visiting a friend). I was in heaven. Never had such good dumplings as the ones eaten there. I tried different varieties (even some with black truffle) and all of them were superb. Also the noodles soup was good and full of flavor. The price? considering... More

Please go to any Din Tai Fung you find in Taiwan or elsewhere. Ask for the shrimp or truffles xialongbao and the seaweed with the sliced tofu! Their cuisine is so delicate and tasty for a very reasonable price!

Don't get me wrong, Din Tai Fung has some of the best dumplings around. They're a very famous restaurant in Taiwan. I'll usually go elsewhere for dumplings, though. The prices at Din Tai Fung are about 3x what they would be at smaller shops, which also have really good food (for the most part). If you want to go on... More

Been to bin tai fung a few times now. Staff & service is quick & efficient. Can't make reservation on weekends, but can during the week. The pork dumplings are awesome - so is the baby bamboo & the pork with rice. Actually.... Everything here is good! Even the tea looks like roses!

I was taken to Din Tai Fung in Taichung, Taiwan. The meal was glorious- the special dumplings were truly special. The other dishes were also good. The waitstaff was fast. I especially liked the Chef window- with the workers creating the dumplings onsite. The food hall atmosphere in Top City was great, too.
