Clean, delicious and in good locations!
The dimsum of DingTaiFeng, especially dumplings, are one of the best choices around.
It is said that chef Albert Adriá, from ElBulli (Spain), cried of joy after tasting these dumplings.
Whether this is true or false remains to be seen, however, I helped myself to a second serving!
It is a little pricy though...

There is a great variety for all tastes. Typical restaurant prices in comparison to street food, but with an excellent casual atmosphere and great staff. Had some noodle soup which was very tasty in addition to a variety of dumplings. Recommended!

Went to the Din Tai Fung along West Nanjing Street for dinner and it was fantastic for dumplings. Amazing how they encased all that delicious soup in the dumplings. Restaurant was clean and pleasantly decorated (not garish). You can watch as the chefs and cooks work in the kitchen.

The best xiao long bao we have tasted. The service was also excellent and the place very clean. We went to the branch in Xitaindi.

We had crab (the best), chicken and truffle (great if you like truffle) and scallop. We only had xiao long bao.

The staff were excellent. They even had a little card with english instructions to eat it (it does taste better if you eat it the right way).

Its not cheap, we spent around 400 rmb for 20 dumplings, one plate of veges, two beers and one pot of oolong tea. But it was well worth the money.

I believe they have 3 Din Tai Fung Restaurants in Shanghai, China; and we went to the one inside the Super Brand Mall (168 Lujiazui Lu), near the Oriental Pearl TV Tower.

We were there at 2pm; so there was no line and service was excellent. Upon our request, they gave us a window seat...great view of the Bund. They also have private rooms in the back.

We tried 6 different xiao long bao and dumplings; they were all delicious and the best I have ever tasted. The chicken soup was so good that I ordered one to-go for my mom. It's a little pricy comparing to other dumpling houses in the area. But for the quality, it's all worth it.
