Dim Tai Fung

I have just found out about this chain and am thinking of going to the one in Canton Road Kowloon is this one better or the same as the one on Hk Island and how long are the queues likely to be and would it be best to book or is that not possible.

Dim Tai Fung is pretty good. I think booking is a good idea. Each time I went to Dim Tai Fung(Qingdao), it was full, I needed to wait for long time.

The name is actually Ding Tai Fung. The one at Canton Rd is always crowded. Do they take reservation? If so I'd definitely make one.

I think the location at Tsim Sha Tsui is about the same as the one at Causeway Bay. I have been to the one at Arcadia, California (Los Angeles area), and the one in Causeway Bay. They are basically the same. (To my surprise.) Ding Tai Fung did a very good job in quality control around the globe.

When I went to the Causeway Bay location (May 2011)... weekday evening. No queue at all. Got seated right away. And... looked around, the place was only half full! At Causeway Bay? During meal hour? (around 8pm). I was surprise again by that. Maybe DTF is not doing as well as they would like. Competition is very tough in the restaurant business in Hong Kong. Maybe its because it was slightly raining.

My favorite Ding Tai Fung signature items:

- Xiaolongbao

- Dan Dan Noodle

- Pork Chop Fried Rice

- Beef Shank

I do not believe Ding Tai Fung takes reservation. It's really not that crowded if you avoid the weekend rush hour. Relative to other similar restaurants, it's not cheap.
