We enjoyed our visit and had the traditional dishes of Xia Long Bao - accompanied by the combined condiments of soya sauce and vinegar. Service was brisk and the queue management was quickly effective. This was enjoyable during the end December cool and rainy weather.

We were already familiar with Din Tai Fung from a prior visit to Hong Kong, so when we decided to visit Taipei we were looking forward to enjoying their food again. Since they are based in Taiwan, they have several locations in Taipei, including this, where it all started. This is one of three locations we visited during our stay... More

The only reason we went was our travelling companions were keen to go given the name. We waited 1:30 hrs for our table (after being advised it would be an hour). The food was good however our Taiwanese hosts advised there was another dumpling restuarant nearby that was better, cheaper and no queues. We will visit it next time

As soon as we decided to add Taiwan to our 2016/2017 vacation this place was added to my must visit sight. We went with a local company who helped us with our orders. The service is fast and spot on, the food exceeded my expectations. I wish there was one of these closer...but then I'd probably weigh 300lbs.

I love Xiaolong bao and my anticipation to DinTaiFung was very high. The restaurant was huge, staffs were serving promptly, food was decent. We ordered pork, pork and crab Xiaolong bao, mushroom and vegi, pork and shrimp dumplings, beef noodles, and Shaohsuing. In general, the food was decent but not exceptional considering its reputation. I am not a chinese but... More

We were there at 9am and fortunately there was no queue. So we managed to get a table for 5 easily. It was a different story when we left. The queue was easily 1-2 hour wait. So the trick is to go there before the restaurant opens at 9am on public holidays and 10am on weekdays. We ordered the usual... More

Just went back to this location several days ago with big expectations. This property was once my most favorite restaurant for dumplings in Taipei. After a few years of absence, I expected the same food quality but I left the shop with BIG disappointment. It is becoming a tourist trap! Service inside the eatery is still very nice but they...
