This restaurant is so crowded but has delicious xiaolongbao, the taste is the best. You can enter without any accompany but this restaurant has only tables (for more than 4 members) as a Taiwanese style! One memo is, this restaurant has many dishes compared to Dingtaifeng in 101 and SOGO. ( I'm not sure but the price could be different...?... More

Oh No - there is a super long line, including tons of tourists (especially from Japan and Mainland China) who flood here to try where foodies call the best Xiao Long Bao in the world But YES!!! - You gonna wait and try it here because this is the "ORIGINAL" store...

The best place on the planet for, uh, dumplings! Get there early and avoid the lines. This place is probably the most popular restaurant in the city. It's a good thing they have 10 locations around town. Enjoy!

Love the Xiao cai, xiaolongbao and hong you chao shou. Pricing is on the high side but still cheaper than Singapore.

A good place for snack and light meal. Decor up to date and clean. The service is excellent and food is very good. If you are elderly there is no elevator going up to narrow steep stairs to the second and third floor.

First of all, go before 11am or be ready for a 90 minute wait.. (at all locations) We spent 60 dollars (American) for dim sum and ate until we were silly. The Xao Long Bao soup dumplings were very good (each one has 19 pinches on top.. count them.) The Char Siu Bao buns were also very good, as was... More
