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.

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.
