“Michelin Star Food, Poor Service.”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

This is one of my favourite restaurant when i was pregnant, I always wants to come back for their Spinach Noodle Tom Yummmm! The food is unquestionably good.
We always go to one in Pacific Place, but the service is poor, sadly
they also refuse to delivery even if its only 0,5 Miles (It was when we both sick)
Sadly, i have to give bad review for the service.

“Best Xiao Long Bao - but no pork :/”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

Din Tai Fung always delivers on quality, taste and of course, great Xiao Long Bao! Only, but really sad, set-back is that the menu in Indonesia is halal, meaning no pork. This is an utter shame!

“Plenty of choice but beware of MSG”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

What we like: wide selection of choice in the menu, good prompt service, transparency to see what goes on in the kitchen, which assure the hygiene standard.

But we would like to see more healthy dishes options without the use of MSG, and the use of canola or sun flower oil instead of palm cooking oil.

“The Best Xiao Long Bao in Town”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

I have tried several Xiao Long Bao in Jakarta but for me Din Tai Fung's is the winner. Well balanced taste and texture and the dim sum skin is thin. My favorite dishes in this restaurant aside from Xiao Long Bao are Tofu covered with salty egg yoke, egg fried rice and blackpapper beef. Some dishes comes in a small portion but they have options of sizes on their menu.

Several branches in Jakarta and we went to Pacific Place mall. It has bright ambient and an interesting mezzanine designed like bird's nest. Table for two to ten and high chair for children are available so couples to families can enjoy this restaurant.

“Nothing can beats great food”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Always my choice to eat in this restaurant once for every month. The sauce, the crispiness of the pork chop and just the right spiciness of the spicy dumpling. Over all, nothing can describe the food as great Chinese food you want to eat for at least once, every month.
