What can I say, affordable, consistently good with amazing staff. I always grab a lunch here when I'm Taipei & it never disappoints.

A big group of us were here for a lunch meeting. The queue to get in was that of a rock concert - INSANE. but our advance booking certainly helped in getting us in a lot sooner. food wise - being Muslim, i thought my lunch would suck as i obviously can't consume any of the dumplings with pork but...

There are so many dumpling places in Taipei but every time when I visit, I always go back to this one as it has the best dumplings. Not just Xiao Long Bao, the hot and sour soup and other appetizers are all so good! And in response to the health food trend, they now offer chicken Xiao Long Bao!

This is my first time in Taipei but I had read about this restaurant. We arrived near 1:30 pm, but still the board showed a 45 minutes wait (they do not take bookings). We registered, got a number and placed the order. We had crab dumplings, chicken dumplings and shrimp dumplings. I liked crab the best. We also had a... More

We went there at 4:00pm and get a table right away. Yet the restaurant was still half full. The restaurant is tourist-friendly -- menu printed with English & Japanese, also individual waiting staff speak English, Japanese & Korean. On each table there is a card teaching foreigners how to eat dumplings in a Chinese way ! Place is clean yet... More

We went there at around 2 pm but there is still a queue. We waited for 45 minutes but its worth it as the food is excellent. The service is great and they will show you the right way to eat xiao long bao. The place is easy to find as it is near Dongmen station exit 5.

The food was excellent. I have been there many times and have not been disappointed. The kids love watching the cooks make dumplings through the glass. These would have to be the best dumplings I've ever had. Regardless of what you order the food is great. They also have dessert dumplings which are special. Don't miss DTF it is a... More

It took us more than one hour to be seated but it's not a big deal since it gave us a chance to shop inside the Taipei 101 mall. A must try is the famous xiao long bao (steamed dumplings) - if it's your first time here, just like us - make sure you read the instructions that comes with... More
