This is not at all indicative of the famous global franchise originating from Taiwan. This location's menu is much smaller and the soup dumplings (xia long boa) is very mediocre. The quality of food was so much better when it first opened in its previous...More

Great dumplings - decent service. We asked for things to be made a bit more spicy and were not disappointed. I would happily go again. A limited wine and beer list, but more than adequate for our needs. Plan to wait at least 15 minutes...More

All I can say is that if there is a Din Tai Fung in a city I am in, I WILL EAT THERE! The dumplings are great both taste and value. I always order the porkchop with fried rice too.

Taking into account that it is almost impossible to find a decent place to eat in Seoul, it was a real luck to find this place. Dim Sums were excellent, beer was cold, tables were clean. But it is hardly a place for dating or...More
