This place is the xiao long bao standard everyone else compares to. The restaurant is very clean and I loved that you could see into the kitchen and watch them preparing the dumplings. I'm a chef, and I've never seen a kitchen as clean as theirs, it was commercial production level clean. We had the crab and pork soup dumplings,... More

I went there to try the famous dumplings and I really liked it. The restaurant is inside a mall and the atmosphere was nice. The service was very fast and they also have some traditional tea to drink. The price is not high but usually dumplings are less expensive. Worth a visit!

Soup dumplings are outrageously good. I usually order (3) types of soup dumplings along with the Hot & Sour Soup, asparagus with crab meat and the ultimate desert cold rice balls or beads in coconut milk. I can't visit Shanghai without a fix at Ding Tai Feng !!!

We have dinner frequently in this restaurant and is still our best choice for dumplin: various choice, any taste, well organized (you can't book, but arriving the booking is efficient), clean and with efficient personel. I recommend dumplin selections with taste mixing shrimp, pork, crab and chicken

We had lunch here yesterday and it was wonderful. The dumplings are just wonderful, especially the Shanghai Soup Dumplings. Service was slick and professional and the beers cold!!! Not the cheapest dumplings around but some of the best I've had. Well worth the money.

I agree with all the visitors and writers of Tripadvisor which said that the dim sum are good. I ordered crab and pork meat dim sum. They melt in your mouth. Besides I ordered some chicken noodles and vegetables. Everything was delicious. Besides you are in the Xintiandi area so later you can enjoy the ambience.

I always bring visiting friends here in Shanghai. It is a chain restaurant that is consistently high quality and delicious. The menu is extensive enough to cater to anyone- with plenty of vegetarian options . I always order the signature dumplings, Dan Dan Mian, and dumplings in spicy sauce...Phenomenal!

Staying in Xintiandi

Neighborhood Profile
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.
