“XIAO LONG PAO!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Their xiao long pao was divine! I really loved it. Although it was a bit pricy it was worth it. I loved every bite of it!

“Very Nice Xiao Long Bao”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012 via mobile

We tried the popular starter Oriental Salad in Special Vinegar Dressing, then the signature dish xiao long bao, Fried Rice with Shrimps & Eggs and Noodle soup with beef.
Efficient service and the price are reasonable for a Michelin star awarded restaurant at Marina Bay Sands Mall.

“Fresh fresh fresh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

Amazing dim sum, great service. Went to this restaurant twice in a week and wasn't disappointed either time. Try the Shrimp pancake, Dan Dan Noodles, Steamed shrimp & pork dumplings and the Dumplings in the vinegar and chili sauce. You won't be disappointed.

I might even go so far to say that iDin Tai Fung was better (in what they do) than Jumbo Seafood out on the East Coast Parkway... ;-P

“Good value and delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Din Tai Fung originated in Taiwan and I had the pleasure of trying this in Taiwan and Singapore (Paragon branch 5-6 years ago).

So was pleasantly surprised to see this at MBS. They are famous for their Xiao Long Bao, and rightly so. I cannot have enough of it! Also tried their Century Egg with Garlic, and was very delighted in how it tasted, as they sort of put it in some kind of sweet sesame oil that matched the tastes perfectly.

As with Taiwan food, they are famous for their fried pork chop, so ordered the Fried Rice with Porkchop and was not disappointed!

If you are a fan of Xiao Long Bao, you should never miss this while in Singapore. They have branches all over the island.

As I was getting ready to leave, I also saw they had on offer Xiao Long Bao infused with Truffle Oil. They said this is the Xiao Long Bao variant that they use to serve foreign dignitaries and important people in Taiwan

“Great food in informal setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

This is a successful chain of restaurants that unlike most chains keeps quality high! In fact it even got a well deserved Michelin star. You can watch the cooks prepare dim sum through a glass window, half a dozen guys working feverishly to roll, fill and steam the stuff. We were lucky to get seated fast but be ready to wait especially on a weekend night. Drunken chicken was good, but crab cake was excellent. So was everything else really. Service was fast and efficient. At some 40 $S per person with beer this was money well spent.
