We have tried din tai fung in taipei, manila and seoul. This outlet is just okay. Although the food is good, there is no wow factor from this outlet. The taipei outlet in shin kong mitsukoshi outlet is the best we tried.

Great place in any country to visit for a delicious dinner on dumplings, seasonal vegetables and rice. The place is so efficient for service, and the price is also very reasonable. The Seoul Restaurant is in a central location as well. Highly recommended and I...More

I admit, I am an addict. Good dim sum is like good sex, or maybe being addicted to drugs or alcohol. This being said, I always end up at a din tai fung when there is one near me. This trip was no exception and...More
