服務氣氛普普,食物有相當的水準,小籠包不枉盛名的確入口生香!永遠的排隊是挺匪夷所思的現象,不知是不是朝聖效應~ 小籠包與眾不同,值得一嚐再嚐! Always a queue, quite a sight. Service and ambience is average at best, nothing special and certainly don't expect anything too fancy. Food; however, is indeed its best feature and I suppose is what draws crowds after crowds to this place. The famous...More

Being famous is not by accident. This one is original. There are many other restaurants under the same name all over many countries. Some of them are not as good as the original one. The dumplings are perfectly done and other dishes are very good...More

It may look intimidating as you approach this restaurant, but the line moves fast and it is worth it. Order the original Xiao Long Bao (pork). Cash only. Hands down best soup dumplings you will ever eat in your life.

This is the original store and despite visiting ding tai fungs in singapore, hk, sydney, melbourne, this one is by far the best tasting. The xia long baos are better than shanghai ones. Even their fried rice tastes amazing.

This place is akin to the original Starbucks by the Market in Seattle. It is always clogged with people outside. You can't reserve here; strictly first come, first served only. The wait is worth your while. Apart from its world renowned dumplings, it is known...More

Visited this branch the second time! The waiting time is different depending on the group size. 1-2, 3-5, or above 5 pax. We (8 pax) waited 15 mins and was given a room to enjoy our food!Price wise I think is comparable to Singapore's.

I have eaten in 3 of their restaurants, the main one in Taipei and the 2 in Arcadia California, just outside of Los Angeles, and I still prefer Taipei over the other 2 that are ALMOST as good, but the Taipei restaurant taste just a little bit better. Its probably the Taiwanese homeland ingredients thats not available in the USA. Is this possible?

I was told by our tour guide that Taipei locations use fresh not frozen ingredients hence better tasting XLBs. Crab XLBs are absolutely phenomenal.
