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

Big space in a touristy area of Shanghai. Went there for lunch. I was there by myself but they managed to make my experience very warm and welcoming. I tried 3 different steamed dumplings and the fried rice with pork cutlet. Food flavors were on point, very clean and delicious. And I think it was very affordable. Excellent experience and... More

The food is what you expect from Ding Tai Fung. What was slightly disappointing for us is the shabbiness of the place. Almost every chair at our table had a split seat cushion.

I tried 5 different places that day, and Ding Tai Fung was around #3. Great dumplings, great soup, a little more gingery compared to the Nanxiang ones nearby. BUT it's much more expensive, and I would skip it if I were on a budge.

Our lunch at this restaurant was certainly one of the best we've eaten in China and was recommended by our local guide who also arranged the selection of foods for us. It seems that Din Tai Fung has about fourteen outlets across a number of Chinese cities and at least one in Sydney, that I'm assured has a similar menu... More
