We've taken a lot of out of town guests here by now...even the finicky "I don't want Chinese food" guests...and they all LOVE Din Tai Fung. Who doesn't? Coming to Shanghai without going to Din Tai Fung is like coming here without seeing the bund. It's a great place for kids, as well. It's loud with plastic-ware, so my kids are right at home here. :) They even have kids' chopsticks if you ask. That might be kind of tricky, though, if you don't speak Chinese...they don't have much English speaking staff. (Normally not a big deal, since you just point to pictures to order.)
