Not as up to par with their other branch (like KL) -it was alright but quite bland. Maybe each chain has different seasoning level (depending on the country they are in). Nevertheless it was still ok and satisfied my cravings.

I discovered this chain in Hong Kong and it's my favorite chain of dim sum places.

The food is excellent. I really love the pork and shrimp and pork buns. The spicy sort of brocolli thing is also excellent.

The food was really good, just not quite as good as Hong Kong. However I still really recommend it.

One thing to note though the entrance is actually not on the Main Street indicated on the map. It's actually round the side. So you have to do a little exploring to find it (it's also up some stairs) however it is worth the effort to go and find it.

First stop in seoul as it was just below our hotel. Great dumpling, we had the different sampler each in which you get 10 of them, and some grilled dumplings with two beers for 30 euro. Did notice any difference to the other din tai restuarants as we tried a few of them.
We had to wait 5 minutes for a table, you get warm tea as you come, and we had a nice table by the window, service was good and fast.

From the get go we should have left after having them bring us three different teapots because the tea was merely lukewarm. As the meal progressed, it was more of the same. The food came out warm but not hot! I have eaten at the Bellevue, Seattle, Los Angeles and Australia outlets and all were far better than this one:( Very disappointed. The dumplings were good. The spicy dumpling sauce good. The green beans were soggy and overcooked in comparison to the other places we have been to. The view was nice on the second floor overlooking the streets but it was not nice enough to offset the inconsistencies of this branch.
