The Xioalongbao (soup dumplings) are probably the best in the world. If you have never had them before, be careful but definitely have them. Everything they do at Din Yai Fung is perfect. I go whenever I can.

Everyone needs to try this place. I am from HK and the din tai fung is not even half as good as the shanghai one. The variety is unparalleled and the staff and ambience are wonderful. Book in advance as it is usually full. I went 12 times in the month I was there. It is that good.

I was dragged by friends to dinner there. I don't like the ambience nor the dumplings served, always leave a very thirsty dry feeling in my throat afterwards. MSG should be banned!

My daughter and I visited with our private guide for lunch while touring Shanghai. Excellent dumplings!! Fried rice, spring rolls, and noodles were also delicious! Friendly service, clean restaurant, and delicious food!

We ordered 5 or 6 orders of dumplings for the two of us. Sufficient, but portions are small. Quality and variety: amazing. Really fine and flavorful; you can definitely tell the difference when you compare to "lesser dumplings". All said this place is excellent, but quite expensive.

Went there a few weeks a go with a group of four. All the Chinese dishes we got where good and well served It is quite popular chain so do not expect restaurant like experience. The food there is cheap for what you get though wine is expensive (100 CNY / head excluding drinks) We could not get a reservation... More

I knew about this place, before I visited Shanghai, it did not fail to disappoint. I went back 3 more times. The Xiao long bao really live up to their hype. It's really really a must-try. We ate 20! The service was exceptional!

Although it's originally from Taiwan, I found this is the best Shanghaiese dumpling Xiaolongbao in town! The skin is thin but it hold the juice/soup in the dumpling perfectly! It's juicy and tasty, perfect for lunch or snack anytime in the afternoon.

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.
