After reading many online reviews, we decided that it was a 'must try when in Taipei' place. We caught the MRT to the station close by and let Google Maps show us how to find it, it wasn't hard. We went on a week night...More

The restaurant is located in a department store and is crazy busy but we booked ahead and only waited for a couple of minutes when we arrived. You are meant to pick your food while you wait but we did not have time as we...More

Ok, let me just start out by saying it was really good. By the looks of the crowd we saw outside everyday, you would think this is the most amazing restaurant in the world. Well, according to The NY Times it was in the top...More

There are other SLB places in Taipei, just as good but not as well known. I just don'T want to wait on the street with the crowd of tourists who come for just the name!

I wanted to like Din Tai Fung’s food after reading all the reviews. But the quality and taste is just okay, nothing extraordinary. I feel like it’s too expensive for Taiwanese food, and I can get the same or better quality food in other places...More

We reached before 6 still It was a long queue, almost an hour. Even tours came to line up. Service was good, hygiene perfect, food was authentic! If the xiao long bao here scores 10 I would rate the outlet near me, KL, an 8.

Think this restaurant is one of the tourist attraction as I saw tour guides bringing tourists here for lunch. Always long queue and be prepared to wait for about 45mins if you come at lunch or dinner timing. However the food is good and the...More

Xinyi Branch is the closest, taking the red line can get you there, you are very close to the restaurant exiting the best exit. Taxi is not too bad, from Taipei Station is about 110-120 NT.
