“XLB in Myeongdong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Loved Xiao long bao , the first time I tried it in Beijing, so glad Ding Tai Fung opened a branch in Myeongodong so I can try it again. A bit hard to find, XLB was ok , more tasty in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.

“My first din tai fung experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

This restaraunt was pretty good. Looks like others have been to other chains in different countries but this was my first. The beef soup was ok. Creamy shrimp was good but a little to sweet. The dumplings were very good though. This is what the restaraunt is known for..

“Good food, reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

We arrived during the lunch hours on the weekend. We were told the wait was 10 minutes, however we only waited for 5 minutes or so. We had dumplings since two or three of the other items we asked for was not available. Thats was fine since they turned outto be delicious. The decor in the restaurant is very interesting and nice. The service was fine, no issues. I think we ordered 3 trays of dumplings and 2 meat dishes and with drinks for 4, I think we payed less than 20,000 wom each. I would definately go back despite being out of several dishes.

Have eaten in a lot of din tai fungus from Seattle,Taiwan,hongkong,Bangkok but this branch is nothing compared to the others.suggest owners visit this place as it should not carry the name of such a great restaurant
