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.

I took my foreign friends and clients to there every time, and they all gave high evaluation of this restaurant. They can see the steamer chef how to make Steamed dumpling, and enjoy the friendly service there. Also they prepare the English and Japanese vision menu for foreigners!

Is it a branch of a famous chain ? Yes..and its Ok. Is there a huge wait...of course..its one of the few clean, well staffed, and quality Chinese eateries in a town of hundreds of "all you can eat" hot pots, endless noodle stands, and other palate numbing volume establishments. I have been here many times and have always had... More

I first went to Din Tai Fung in July 2013 and have probably been to din tai fung about 10 times now. It is a michelin 1 star restaurant and at the price with that in mind, it is very cheap. The soup dumplings compliment a meal very well but my favorite is the spicy dumplings and the sauce is... More

We had our dinner during our last day at Tai Chung. It was an unforgettable experience (we have been queued for about 30 minutes, but no worries, the staffs are very efficient!). The specially recommended long xu cai taste great. Other food recommended are: Xiaolongbao, Guotie (Potstickers), Jiaozi (Steamed Dumplings)! I personally like the Jasmine tea.

Over priced but did keep their standard. I have tried branches in Taipei, Singapore and Hong Kong and found their standard much better than the Taichung branch. The stemmed dumpling was hard and try. Tast was bland.

You come all the way to the home of soup dumplings (Taiwan) and you go to the branch that is everywhere. You can find dumplings as good or better all throughout the city in little mom and pop places. Not to mention for a fraction of the price and wait time.

Ironic system of ordering but the process is more streamlined to get customers in and out quickly. Put your name on the list. Grab a menu with pictures and fill out your order sheet while you wait for your table. I don't speak or read Chinese so the pictures on the menu correspond to the numbers on the order form.... More
