One of the few places that still makes dumplings with broth inside them which just makes them that much better. The other food was good however a bit of waste if you can have such wonderful dumplings. It is a chain however been to 2 and been impressed both times in different cities. Worth a visit

Since the time we moved to Shanghai, we were looking for Asian (Chinese) restaurant that would suit our palate. Afterall, Chinese cuisine is most popular after Indian cuisine in India. Serendipitously, we walked into Din Tai Fung, and viola, a whole new world opened in front of us. Food is GOOD. The spicy noodles are GOOD and so are the... More

Good place for lunch though crowded. One thing that I would like to point out is that the cold beverage does not come with a straw as usual unlike other branches in Shanghai. You need to request for straw.

Din Tai Fung is a must in Shanghai! If you like dumplings, you just need to go there. They have a very big variety and they all are very tasty, vegetables are nice too and my kids love the noodles with scallions and soy... It's good and fun and for a very good price.

Great place, especially with kids, and there are a lot of dim sum options, and pictures make it easy to order. Service friendly and efficient. Great if you're not feeling adventurous enough to eat on the street. I'd go back!

I have eaten in this chain several times before, and really enjoyed it, but this time I was a little disappointed. We arrived (Shanghai Centre) at about 8.30pm to find that many of the dishes had already sold out. Maybe because it was a little late the dumplings seemed a little dried out. Choice also seemed far less than I... More

This is an incredible place for all things Dim Sum and related. The staff here are so dedicated to their craft, to their customers and to the culture. Watch the team talks if you get there early enough. Do try as many different options as you can. Siu Mai divine as are Xiao Long Bao, duck especially. Fried rice was... More

First time in Din Tai Fung, but not the first time I've eaten in Shanghai so I have a reasonable frame of reference. And I'm going to say very good good service and food. You'll have to be a fan of dumplings though - having said that the rice was also very good. The hot food was hot, fresh chillies... More
