The soup dumplings at Din Tai Fung are INCREDIBLE!!! This is the original location (i think), with a cozy and low key setting. The chain has others that feel fancier and more modern, but there is something about the old school vibe of this place that is really charming too. a million thumbs up My favorite restaurant in the world.

Definitely worth going off peak hours so you dont have to wait to be seated. But even the wait is well worth your while.

This is the best restaurant in our opinion in our Taipei trip. Their xiao long bao was the best. The branch we tried was the one in taipei 101 and it is a very decent place but you need to wait in line for at least 30 minutes but it is worth the wait.

We waited for about 30-35 minutes before we were given a table. The server is nice to explain everything and is very attentive to our requests. The foods here are all delicious especially the xiao long bao. Will definitely be back if time and budget permits.

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.
