Reserve in advance...

the waiting queue may be long, peak hours in the evening will let you wait 30'. Phone in advance, if you speak Chinese.

This is my favorite place for dumplings. My favorites are the truffle dumplings: expensive but definitely worth it! It's typically very crowded: expect to wait 50 mins to eat during the weekend, 20 otherwise.

As a western businessman, I found the menu plentiful, and the service excellent. The items described as spicy were perfect.

We have lots n lots of DingTaifeng restaurants in Singapore (19 outlets in SG vs 10 outlets in Taiwan) so one would think we will try other restaurants since in Taiwan. But No! Ding Tai Feng is from Taiwan & hence it's always become a must go, "must eat at least once" whenever I'm in Taiwan. Taichung being a big... More

Din Tai Fung is the pride of Taiwanese cuisine. Its high quality dishes and its carefully selected flavours make it one of the world's most well-renown restaurants ever. The one in Taichung continues the tradition of delivering high-quality dishes, especially with its Xiao Long Bao 小籠包, but fails to live up to the original branch in Taipei. That said though,...

Don't get me wrong: Din Tai Fun is a great restaurant. They have delicious food, a really nice atmosphere, and it's one of those "famous" places you need to go when here. But it's not worth it to most. I've read that they wrap their dumplings with a thinner and more delicate wrap, but in practicality, it's unnoticeable. They taste... More

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.
