Best Xiao Long Bao

We have eaten at their restaurant in Sydney and Hong Kong and always enjoy the meal. This was no exception. We had a selection of dumpling including their soup dumplings, Xiao Long Bao. Excellent meal. Recommend if you like a dumpling.

The restaurant is just outside an exit (#8 I think) from YuYuan Garden complex, and across the street. It's set back from the road & we missed it initially, looking only at the "old" side of the street (it's on the new side). It's upstairs and has its name across the front. We arrived a bit before noon on a... More

Showing my friends from oversea, we recently visited Yu garden and had tried Shanghai dim sum in this restaurant. Although it's a bit noisy, the shao long bao was delicious and the hosts are friendly and attentive. We ordered different kinds and every kind has the character. Nice lunch

On a cold rainy day while showing YuYang Gardens to some friends from California, we decided to find someplace warm for lunch. The dumplings were excellent... Definitely try the Siew Long Bao with hairy crab, we had seconds! The portion sizes were good, small dumplings absolutely fresh. No roving carts, but they delivered your order as the dishes were ready.... More

We ate here with a group and our tour leader ordered for us. The chain's specialty soup dumplings were delicious, and everything else was also of very good quality. Din Tai Fung has a lot of locations in Shanghai, as well as some in other major Chinese cities. We were looking forward to this and were not disappointed.

It was a pretty nice lunch - not as great as the Michelin star place in Hong Kong but good place to go for a nice lunch and right in the heart of Old Shanghai

We recently ate at this Din Tai Fung location. The service was average, rushed and a little underwhelming. The restaurant was a little dreary inside compared to the one on Nanjing Road and the prices were the same. At 7 pm they were sold out of truffle xiaolongbao, their signature dumpling. Never got to try it thus the visit to... More

Chose this particular Ding Tai Fung as it was within walking distance from our Hotel. As with the other outlets this one also excels with its dumplings and wonton soups and excellent service. It was clean and comfortable and is located in tourist shopping area, not too far from the Bund, perfect for an after dinner stroll.

As many below have said, this branch of DTF isn't the one to raise the flag. Check out the ones higher in tge Shanghai trip advisor list, and definitely don't judge until you visit one of the Michelin Star venues (e.g. Taiwan or HK). Dumplings here are as per the standard good quality recipe. Venue not so nice, just passable.... More
