We went there for lunch and took some different dumplings and pork with fried rice.
The food was really tasteful, the service was nice and the price was reasonable.

I love Din Tai Fung, there dumplings are great. I visited several venues, the original one in Taipei is still the best. In Shanghai I always go to the restaurant in Super Brand Mall. However, last time I got there I noticed a new item: Dumplings with Shark Fin. I think there is plenty of awareness not too eat shark fin anymore, yet this company decided to put it on the menu. Just plain dumb. I am not going there anymore.

Went for lunch. The mall setting is modern and pleasant. The wonderful array of dumplings present the problem of overeating. It is hard to resist trying everything, and you can't go wrong. It's all great. So go, and stuff yourself, you'll love it.

Inside a mall in Xintiandi, a very fun, touristy area, Din Tai Fung is awesome. Menu is great - wish I could have tried everything. Tried several types of dumplings, all were excellent. Service is outstanding - they serve drinks while you're waiting, they cover your belongings w/ a cover when you sit, and they are constantly coming by checking on you.

Thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Best meal of the trip, and a great area to shop and walk around before and after dinner. Lots of shops and bars nearby. Highly recommend spending a night here, centered around dinner at Din Tai Fung.

The fact that scores of people line up to dine here says something. Better to go very early or late to avoid the queue. Delicious food beautifully presented. We were amazed at the number of chefs in the kitchen & everything looked to be scrupulously clean.
