“Good food, good service with a pleasant view of shanghai”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

First time to visit this restaurant during my short visit to Shanghai. Besides being in a big shopping mall, this restaurant has a very good view overseeing the Bund of Shanghai. This chain restaurant is famous of its good food and service and this one I visited surely represented the high standard this brand is famous of. The service there was also good, its staff members were polite and professional.
There is an open kitchen where customers can see their cooks making their famous dumplings.
I am sure I will return to this restaurant when I visit Shanghai again.

“Food is good with great view.”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

Food was ok in Shanghai standard, probably overpriced. You are paying for the view.
Very crowded at lunch time

“Great Dim Sum with a view”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

For a fabulous view of the Bund from the Lujiazui side and great dim sum without having to deal with difficult translations at a local restaurant, DTF is a great option. DTF is an international chain covering most of SE Asia, and maintains a good quality everywhere. I have eaten in several of their outlets in various countries and they are all good. But to call them the KFC of Dim Dum is not doing justice to them
The one at Super Brand Mall has one of the best locations anywhere. I never tire of going there, and have been there a dozen times already.
Best time to go there is for lunch or early evening.

“The view!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Loved everything about this place, it's better than the Taipei original. The river view to the Bund is awesome, service extremely attentive (thank you, Coco!), food quality exceptional, and overall, a great meal that cost nothing. Loved the chicken truffle dumplings, and the soup choices, too. A winner!

“Melt in your mouth dumplings”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Each dumpling is so perfectly assembled and just the right balance of everything. There is a half-life with them though, If you're too eager to pop them in your mouth, you end up with a throat full of scalding lava, too late and the precious juices start to coagulate and it loses much of it's flavour.
