“Consistently excellent.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We have eaten here plenty of times and on each occasion it has been excellent. The dumplings are particularly good, but give the pork steak a try as well - you wont be disappointed.

The service is as consistent as the food, the prices are very reasonable and the restaurant is spotlessy clean - there is a reason that this place is so highly rated....

“The best Xialongbao”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Although a chain, this place has the best Xialongbao (dumplings with soup inside) I have ever tasted. Go early (before noon) or th queue can be quite long. The service is also very good. Try the sweet dumplings for dessert if you not totally stuffed.

“The one and only 小笼包 place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

In Shanghai, there is only one place necessary to go for 小笼包 (Xiao long bao), Din Tai Fung! These soup filled dumplings are heaven sent and a must try on a visit to Shanghai. Not going to get into the fact that it is a Taiwanese restaurant and so on, this place is simply the best.

“Best Dumplings ever...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Great place to have dumplings, they are made fresh and you can see that... and taste that. The dumplings are very tasteful and it's worth the wait, because it's always busy. Also nice side dishes; like noodles...

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Visited with four work colleagues on a Friday night. Service was excellent and the food was great. I think that all of the dishes that we had were enjoyed by all. Everyone enjoyed themselves.
I would certainly return on my next visit to Shanghai.
