Been to Din Tai Fung a few times in KL and in singapore and they're consistently good!

Very tasty dumplings that's made in a glass covered kitchen in the restaurant so you can see they make them fresh right there and then.

Food is very tasty and it rarely takes more than 10-15 minutes before the dishes starts getting served.

Try the hot and sour soup as a appetiser, really good and perfectly made. Order the small one though, as the big one is a main course in it self.
Another recommendation is the Pork xiao longbao, just roll it over in your spoon so it doesn't burst and the soup comes out.

Ps: their take away is as good as the food in the restaurant.

What a great experience.
Nice place, clean and well organized.
Food is lovely with many options.
English menu available.
Really worth a try.
It's a big chain spread all over the east but still tastes like real food.

For a one star Michelin place, the atmosphere is really disappointing. Hard chairs and small tables placed very closely together. Plus the service is a bit hit and miss. You order your own food by ticking the sheet with the food descriptions and you are given a menu with pictures if you need extra help. Food comes amazingly quickly and you can see the chefs working n a glass room with face masks on!
However, the quality of the food is great. Very clean and healthy. For a one star Michelin place, very affordable.
Worth trying if you like dim sum/ yum cha delicacies.

Since discovering Din Tai Fung, I have enjoyed its food in at least 3 different countries in Asia. Their Xap Longboa is excellent and so is the fried rice with shrimp and egg.

Be prepared to wait to get a table the ambience here is not to my liking its too busy,noisy, crammed with patrons -
The food was ok loved the hot n sour soup
The tables are too small - if u ordered many dishes there is no where to put them all - maybe thats why after placing ur order the food doesn't come at the same time .. Drips n draps
Service is good
