Reliably excellent!

This is a great chain, consistently good food, service and atmosphere in all the restaurants I've visited. Don't miss the truffle and pork dumplings!

In my visit to Shanghai it became impellent tasting the famous Xiaolongbao. These delicious dumplings are available in different recipes. But all of them are delicates, wet and well stuffed. You can order several other traditional dishes and beverages. Very good.

Clean restaurant, good food but a little bit expensive compared to the restaurant you can find in the street. Convenient for people who want to approach asian food (it is not only local chinese food) without taking risks.

There are many restaurants now in China that have opened in many cities from Beijing to Guangzhou, to Chengdu, etc. This one in Shanghai was the first to open in mainland China by the mother company. This remains the best in terms of taste during the 12 years I've spent in Shanghai and travelling around China. Dumplings are tasty, noodles... More

Always good food here. The kids love it and I enjoy eating here. A far better fast food than any fast food burger bar. Can be busy at times and sometimes you need to wait for a table, usually no more than 30 minutes.

Have visited this restaurant in different countries this one is the easiest to get a table. Relatively pricy like their other restaurants. The good thing is the food quality is maintained at consistently high level. As there are not a lot of customers we can stay and chat much longer than in their other restaurant without feeling guilty of delaying... More

Din Tai Fung is a delicious and a great choice for a very good meal. They serve a version of Shanghai's famous xiaolongbao that is better than most other options in Shanghai and worth the trip. (I recommend the pork chop with fried rice, it is exceptional.) The service at DTF is always good and I have not experienced any... More

Neighborhood Profile
Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle pockets that have their own unique attractions. The schools have formed pockets of international communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang. Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have built up over the years to cater to these communities. While living here means you are relatively far away from Shanghai’s usual hot spots, the large parks, spacious homes and proximity to great Japanese and Korean food keep the neighborhoods popular.
