“Food and service were superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Big space in a touristy area of Shanghai. Went there for lunch. I was there by myself but they managed to make my experience very warm and welcoming.
I tried 3 different steamed dumplings and the fried rice with pork cutlet.
Food flavors were on point, very clean and delicious. And I think it was very affordable.
Excellent experience and would definitely go back any given time.
The only thing is that I would come with friends the next time, in order to be able to order a variety of their menu offerings.

“Nothing very special about this Ding Tai Fung”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

The food is what you expect from Ding Tai Fung. What was slightly disappointing for us is the shabbiness of the place. Almost every chair at our table had a split seat cushion.

“Good Xiaolongbaos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

I tried 5 different places that day, and Ding Tai Fung was around #3. Great dumplings, great soup, a little more gingery compared to the Nanxiang ones nearby.

BUT it's much more expensive, and I would skip it if I were on a budge.

“Fabulous food, exempary service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

Our lunch at this restaurant was certainly one of the best we've eaten in China and was recommended by our local guide who also arranged the selection of foods for us. It seems that Din Tai Fung has about fourteen outlets across a number of Chinese cities and at least one in Sydney, that I'm assured has a similar menu of the same high standard. One of the highlights of the Yu Gardens outlet, apart from the amazing soup and dumplings is the viewing room where you can watch a number of highly skilled staff rolling out the dumpling dough and fashioning it into the dumplings that will soon be served in the adjacent restaurant.
