I ended up there completely by accident, but what a pleasant surprise. The dumplings were to die for! The service was great, and very child friendly - my little one got the cutest cutlery set. My favorite ones were the barbecue pork.

I was excited to read all the great reviews for this place. I did not realize that it is in a mall!!! We don't have food like this in US shopping malls. I love dumplings and these were the best I have ever had. I live near San Fransisco and have had dumplings in Vancouver, Montreal and Hong Kong. These... More

Just watching the chefs preparing the dumplings its worth to going there. Be prepared to queue for some time because this place is highly frequented. The handmade dumplings with various fillings are delicious. The service is efficient and rather to quick to enjoy all the different flavors. The secret star is the fried rice. A must try. Its good to... More

Service was efficient, but I couldn't say friendly. Service was quick and the Xialong Bao good but it wasn't so amazing I have to go back. Ok for a quick pit stop of Xialong Bao and be on your way.

My colleague told me this is his favorite place to dine. I thought it was fantastic. I was staying at the Marriott Tang Plaza and after a long day of work we wanted to get a decent dinner. My friend suggested Din Tai Fung and we walked over from the Orchard metro stop. I let my friend do all the... More

Din Tai Fung is a Taiwanese Michellin star rated chain that specialises in Xialong Bao (soup dumpling). The most widely known DIn Tai Fung in Singapore with tourists is the Marina Bay Sands shopping centre branch. The average wait for a table there can be upwards of 45 minutes. The Paragon centre in Orchard road is just as good usually... More

Dinner last night at DTF in the Paragon Mall in Singapore, and while the meal was "good", the food had little character. The xiao long bao were lacking in flavor. Soups were good, but overall it was a very average performance.

This Paragon branch is much better than others. The restaurant itself has a much better ambience than others (especially Serangoon Central which does not resemble the offerings at other branches). The XLB are big, juicy and with light skins. The Oriental Salad was really tasty and so were the Oriental Wontons with Black Vinegar. We love coming back here again... More

Locals love Din Tai Fung Restaurant because you can never go wrong with its concise menu and consistent food quality. Most popular here is the xiao long bao, filled with a light soup and fresh succulent pork, wrapped in a beautifully thin skin.
