If you are a dumpling fan, this is a great place. But, if you want typical chinese food (Szechuan, Hunan etc..), this is not the place. Choices are limited beyond dumplings.

Despite having to wait 20 minutes for a table on a Sunday night, it was totally worth it. They told us it was a 20 minute wait for a table of 3, and it was. Din Tai Fung is worth it every time, excellent and fast service, dumplings for miles, loved it all.

Despite the long waiting time Din Tai fung worths a visit. Dumplings are hand made and freshly cooked, kitchen is clearly visible as well the dumpling makers at work. Delicious and tasting food, don't miss it.

Four of us shared a half dozen dumpling dishes here and very much enjoyed it. Two of us speak Mandarin and did all of the ordering so I can't provide a lot of specifics other than to say that I really enjoyed every dish. The restaurant is located in a large mall and is quite pleasant. The service was really... More

One of my favourite restaurants in Shanghai, Din Tai Fung is a must if you like good dumplings. Unlike anything else I've had these are just amazing. The pork dumplings are by far the best in my opinion, but they offer several other varieties such as chicken, crap, prawns and veg if preferred. Clean, tidy, good service and great food.

Our first lunch in Shanghai was here, having been recommended by my nephew for the best dumplings. The rest of the family tried them and really enjoyed them.I have never liked dumplings being chinese or English. All of the food was very tasty. We had noodles, pork, egg/ham fried rice, garlic spinach, pak choy with ginger and beef in spicy... More

We were having a bit of difficulty finding Chinese food that the kids liked. I had read about Din Tai Fung in other cities we visited but it was never close to where we were staying. The waitress was lovely, bringing out dough and showing the kids how to make animals out of it. The food was a hit with... More

I'd give the xiaolongbao here (Shanghai dumplings, the claim to fame) 8/10. Tasty enough but not ravishingly good or reason to return, given the spectacular food everywhere in SH. I found many little local storefronts so much tastier. But DTF is extremely clean, organized and familiar to Western standards for the setting and service. And they gave my girls cute... More

We went on Thursday evening and had to wait about 20 minutes for a table but it was well worth. This was my first trip to China and a veteran insisted we to to Din Tai Fung while we were there and I am glad we did. We started with the pork soup dumplings, spicy shrimp and pork wontons, and...

Staying in Xintiandi

Neighborhood Profile
Xintiandi
The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park provides the area with green space and is also home to Shanghai Fashion Week twice a year. It’s not all glitter and glamour, though, as the rise of Danshui Road has given the Xintiandi area a shot of toned-down character. Small bars and cafes, mostly owned by locals, have people hanging out in a formerly quiet, unassuming part of the neighborhood.
