Very Good and professional, although is not high class as it look like but is quite good. Have tried the dumpling and is very good.

The original Din Tai Fung and the best. Much cheaper than you will find in the overseas franchises. The Xao Long Bao is sensational, and to be honest really shines over everything else on the menu. The wait can be 15-30 minutes so pick your visit time wisely and push through the crowd right to the counter to get a... More

The food is good but did not meet the expectations. Do not take reservation .I did not enjoy the food, after long time (One and a half hours ) waiting for table and spent an Half hour eating in the very crowded and noisy restaurant.

If you want to taste the famous xiao long bao you will have to wake up and go camp in line in order to eat the xiao long bao which I personally think is slightly overrated, people all around the world say that you have to try it but I say that it is just mediocre and over hyped

The xialongbao, the shuimai..... it never disappoints. Big branch int eh basement of 101. Be aware that it is crowded and there are often lines. If you are a party of 1 or 2 you'll be in good shape...Groups, check in and take a walk. For as busy as it is, the DTF staff always delivers quality and pleasant service.

You have to take a number and wait some 45 minutes to get a table. It is worth the wait. The food was well prepared, quality was maintained. Service was good. Not to worry, they have an English menu. You can tick your orders while waiting in queue. Excellent place for a meal.

The food was excellent but the only problem is the long waiting times. The first time we were told it would be an 80 minute wait and so we gave up. The next time we went very late in the afternoon after 3 pm and then only had a 10 minute wait.

To start on a positive note, I think the service was great and although I knew based on customer turnover that the staff were keeping an eye on the clock to get us out ASAP (as it was so busy), I never felt like they were trying to force us out. I must give them a lot of credit for... More
