There was a long line because this was the original place where Din Tai Fung started but they have a good system so wait did not take long. The staff are all courteous, friendly and wearing a good smile. Food came fast. I tried Din...More

Even on a Saturday morning I had to wait 15 mins before entering, saw 100-150 people queues on other days. Worth waiting entirely! Awesome dumplings! Service like a machine but very friendly. I tried some of the China DTF branches before but the real thing...More

If you love soup dumplings, Din Tai Fung is a must. You can't go wrong with any dish. The service is fast, and the staff speaks multiple languages including Mandarin, Japanese, and English. The line can be long, but if you go during off-peak hours...More

Have tried many DTFs and thought the original in Taipei would be a "wow" - it's not. Be prepared for huge crowds (even at 6pm for an early dinner), if you want to wait less, go between 2 to 4 pm. Food was not fine...More

Everything here is good. We came during off-peak hour so we didn't have to wait long. Best choices are still the xiao long bao's. Their shiu mai was also really nice. The fried rice was surprisingly good as well.

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.

昨日101のディンタイフォン行きました。噂通り美味しくて小籠包、エビチャーハン、スペアリブその他色々とビールを注文したところウェイトレスさんが多すぎるのではと注意して下さったのでスペアリブはライス無しの単品に変えました。とにかく美味しかったのでまた食事の為に行きたいです。ありがとうございました。
