Food was great, especially xiaolongbao! I recommend going at off peak hours. We went at 8 pm and only waited 15 mins for a table!

Yes! I will keep on coming back for xiao long bao. The chocolate one is the best! Can’t explain how good it is. - Hot, soft, chewy, and soo chocolatey. But, u have to queue before u’ll be seated. Tip: Be there like 15-20 minutes before opening time, and u will get a seat once its open.

The food was absolutely wonderful, had several types of dumplings that our friend who lived in Taipei suggested , service was quick and efficient, super clean restaurant, ordering while standing in line outside can be a bit daunting, try to get there around 11 , if not, the wait will be considerable but worth it

Our family group went to Daan Forest Park and then fortuitously saw Din Tai Fung late morning - with a smallish queue. So we booked our group in and then headed off for a beer next door-ish - perfect!

Our group ranged from 18 months to 60 years, and hey everyone loves dumplings and these were great. We had to climb quite a few stairs to our table, however, once in the place is a very smooth slick operation. I was intrigued to notice the video cameras monitoring all the floors.

We enjoyed it. Tick!

This is a very famous place, so I had to try.
The dim sum was very tasty. My guide book said when you reserve ahead, they have a class to teach you how to make the famous dim sum, so I asked them. Unfortunately they don’t do that if you are solo. It has to be at least two people... :-(
