From the rave reviews we thought we must give this place a try... and it did not disappoint. The food was tasty and the service was impeccable... The only disappointment was the wait... we had to wait 40mins for a table as it is so popular, but the food was certainly worth the wait. Its great to be able to... More

Best dumpling I have ever had, especially the juicy ones that explode in your mouth. Well worth the long wait to sit down.

As everyone below has said. Wonderful dumplings, especially the bit when the broth explodes on your tongue.

Best dumplings I've ever had! Don't forget to order the desert buns, the smaller ones, because they are amazing too. Great service and the staff was wonderful!

Din Tai Fung started out in Taipei. I was in the 101 restaurant recently. it was a great experience, not only for the dumplings, but other things like the genuine "earth chicken" soup. This isn't the original Din Tai Fung restaurant - it's still going, I've eaten there, too. Din Tai Fung have a lock on dumplings, you won't be... More

This is a very busy restaurant that does not take reservations, so if you want to visit it be prepared to stand in line. The reputation of the place is based on its dumplings, that are very reminiscent of Shanghai style. They are very good indeed. We tired some 12 different varieties of dumplings, and all were between very good... More

Thankfully we were there on a weekday afternoon. Queue is relatively short. We got in within 15mins. Service is good and proactive. Slight difference in the vinegar used here; rice vinegar with soy sauce in a ratio of 3:1. We just ordered a small portion as a snack and for food taste. The 小菜is served promptly. You can taste the... More

My husband and I stopped here prior to leaving for the airport and were not disappointed! Everything was so fresh and wonderful!! There will be a wait so plan to go early. We arrived a little after 11 and had to wait about 40 minutes but it was well worth it! Wish I was able to eat here every week!!!

You can always expect a good meal there. This place is already known for good tastes and good quality, which is no surprise in Taipei. What is uncommon is the management of the restaurant. You can witness their efficiency before you get seated. The waiting order is categorized in three classes, 1-2, 3-4 and 5 & up people, and you... More
