“Din Tai Fung at par with Taipei Shops”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

We went to Xin Tian Di on our last night to check the place and have our dinner. We didn't find any restaurants to our likings and as we were walking towards the mall, I saw the Din Tai Fung signs from the second floor. So we decided to check this place. When we got there which is already past 8PM, the place is full and there were several customers waiting to be sit in. Luckily for us since we were a big group, 6 adults and 1 kid, we were immediately given a table, a private room. Inside the room there is a dedicated service personnel waiting for our orders and other needs. She was very friendly and immediately offered to take our group picture. She also molded some small animals using mixed flour and gave it to our kid.

Comparing the menu against the one in Taipei, they have more choices but a little bit pricey.
We ordered the famous Xia Long Bao and some dimsuns. Although, plain rice is not in their menu, we were able to order cooked rice.
We enjoyed the foods and have a great time in our own private room.

We had a really hearty meal here. Outstanding Dim sums and Egg friend rice... Everything we ordered was excellent... Quick service. Went there twice in our 3 day stay in Shanghai.

“Overpriced and missing flavor.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

I have lived in Shanghai for 3 months now, and was very disappointed about the food. The price is double compared to any local dim sum place and the flavor was very doll. Can see it's a safe choice for tourists but I will recommend to go somewhere else.

“Good dumplings in a nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

I have been there several times and I've never been disappointed. The prok dumplings, the fried rice and the soups are excellent. More expensive than other places but the service and the quality of the food is good. Sometimes, too many people and you have to wait a long time.
