The food was really great and I got lucky with the wait - only 15 minutes. Can be much worse apparently but that for me reflects the quality of the food. Really is worth the wait - best dumplings I've eaten. Really recommended

Din Tai Fung is a restaurant originating in Taiwan, specializing in xiaolongbao (steamed dumplings). We ordered seven Chinese foods. All were very delicious. The price of the meal was quite reasonable. Often, you have to make a reservation for a seat. Electric bulletin board displays the approximate waiting time.

This was my first food stop. I was lucky. I arrived and I had a table. Be prepared to wait for one to two hours. So plan your day, rock up to get your name down and go and shop while you wait. Words cannot describe both the food and the service. It is definitely worth the wait. It is... More

We had already visited Din Tai Fung's Zhongshan location on a prior day, but when we strolled by the 101 branch we did not resist and went back. As much as we like to explore new food, we kept coming back, it's that good. The menu classifies the dishes -- particularly their signature dumplings -- into different categories, includes a...

I just love Din Tai Fung food. It's always fresh and delicious. The quality never disappointed me. All things are even suitable for western stomach. I brought there some colleague of mine, which don't have much access to Chinese food and they loved all the dishes we had. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The waiting line might be...

Incredible, efficient service balanced by perfectly made soup and savoury dumplings. Pages of options. Highly recommend the string beans with pork, all of the soup dumplings and the noodles with the spicy house sauce. Arrived shortly after opening and did not wait.

We visited the Zhong shan branch. There's was a queue when we arrived at the restaurant but there was a system. W were given a number and the number being served was flashed at the entrance. We were willing to wait because my 2 girls didn't want to leave Taipei without tasting the authentic Xiao Long Bao. The restaurant is... More

All I can say is that service is 👍👍👍👍👍👍. I usually don't like the idea of 10% surcharge for service, but for this, I'd gladly pay for it It's crowded, I suggest going there for late lunch, so the wait won't be long
