Asked locals and ex-pats alike, and most said that Din Tai Fung (Taiwanese!?) was the best in the city. Was not disappointed...exponentially better than what is available in San Diego. Fun place, great staff...will definitely check out the LA location next time I'm up the road.

Open kitchen allowed one to view the creation of the wonderful dumplings. The dumplings were the best I have tasted ever! We kept ordering another 10. Service was good and attentive

It is another outlet I went with my friends. Good food as always and the environment is better than some other outlet. We ordered a bottle of yellow rice wine which wnet very well with the dishes we ordered. Good as standard Ding Tai Feng.

I can't believe none of my friends told me about this place. Thank you trip advisor and your reviewers. This place has great Taiwanese dumplings, I am told it is a huge international restaurant, but being Australian I had never heard of it. Well worth the visit, it gets busy, but the staff are great, the service is brilliant and... More

Din Tai Fung is an international restaurant with locations all over the world but I'd say compared to the one in California and Washington, it's on another level in Shanghai. With dozens of different kinds of dumplings it's fun to order a bamboo steamer of every kind and be able to taste all of them and then of course order... More

This restaurant offers the best dim sum in town. Here and at the rest of its locations. Apart from this speciality of theirs they serve excellent Chinese dishes and an awesome rice. The price is good for the standard.

Love the food, service is good, atmosphere is family oriented and enjoyable. Food servers have a bit of English, enough to get by. Can't wait to go back.

Exactly what you'd expect from a dim sum restaurant in China. Very clean and efficient. Little English spoken but that's not a problem. Food quality was very good and tasty. Kids in our group loved the experience as well.

Staying in Xintiandi

Neighbourhood Profile
The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park provides the area with green space and is also home to Shanghai Fashion Week twice a year. It’s not all glitter and glamour, though, as the rise of Danshui Road has given the Xintiandi area a shot of toned-down character. Small bars and cafes, mostly owned by locals, have people hanging out in a formerly quiet, unassuming part of the neighborhood.
