Din Tai Fung is situated at B1 of the Taipei 101 Mall. The first time we went by, there was a long queue outside the restaurant. We thought there is no chance we get to eat here. We were a party of 12 people. But on our last day in Taipei, we went to the restaurant about 16:30. It was... More

I came around 4 pm for late lunch and was happy to wait only 10 min, as I was told that the waiting line is usually longer, around 1-2 hrs sometimes. The hostess are very friendly and effective. You have to register at one counter where you will be given a menu, there will be another person to help you... More

This place gets very busy with an indicator outside of your waiting time, but if you time it right, you might just be able to be escorted to your table immediately (like us on our second visit) The dim sum are all prepared fresh by a large group of chefs and are delicious. There are other branches as well, but... More

I had the world famous Xiao Long Bao and the hot and sour soup. It was every bit as good as I was led to believe based on the reviews and the hype surrounding this restaurant. The wait was only about 10 mins to get a table and the service was very efficient. All servers were well versed in English.

The service here is good. The food here is very good and has more variety than Singapore. Recommended to try when in Taipei. This branch is the nearest if you are staying at Grand Hyatt Taipei.

As a solo traveler who does not enjoy waiting in long lines, I opted for the much faster option of ordering take out (10 min wait versus 90+ minute wait) and ate them in the adjacent food court. The price was fair for a Michelin starred restaurant (about $8 for a half serve of soup dumplings and a half serve... More

Went there at 3:30pm to avoid the line up and was seated within 5 minutes. Service was prompt and tea was poured as soon as the cup was empty probably because there is a automatic 10% service charge added to the bill. Food was dis-appointing, bland hot and sour soup and no salt on the table for me to add.... More

Got the highly recommended dumplings and some other food. Service was very good and food was fresh but my dumplings weren't very juicy. Arrived at 11:15 on a Sunday and although there were about 50 people in front of me, we were seated within 15 minutes. You write down your order while you're waiting which helps speed up service.

Love this chain of good quality dim sum. The food is utterly stunning, every time we have visited. Not surprising it is always busy. Go at an unusual time to avoid long queues. Highly recommended.

What can be said that hasn't been said? Just go here, and the one must-order (there are many great things on the menu) are the Xialongbaos (XLBs). Had the pork, chicken, shrimp XLBs and were all fantastic. The 101 Branch is at the bottom of the Taipei 101 tower, so if you are short on # of days as we... More
