We went to Din Tai Fung 3 times during our HK + Taipei trip. I like this branch a little more than the Xinyi branch, though maybe it's because we didn't have to wait too long for our reservation. We came on a weekday around 5pm whereas for the Xinyi branch, we went on a Sunday during peak lunch. I... More

This is a great restaurant that is famous throughout the world. It is one of my childhood memories and the mouthwatering smells of xiao long bao simply makes you want to go in and grab a dozen.

We did the 101 observation deck then went down on a recommendation and glad we did. We waited about 15 minutes to get in but worth every minute. You order while in line and when seated your food starts to magically appear by an army of lovely waitresses. We ordered 2 types of dumplings, soup, green beans and some fried... More

The prices comparatively are very high but michelin star rating and exceptionally hot and delicious pork dumplings worth for it. The ginger and soya sauce goes very good with all dumplings and it is very crowded restaurant because of one of the favorite restaurant of Taiwanese in iconic Taipei 101 building, one might need to wait for couple of min....

When in Taiwan, i would be remiss to not at least give Ding Tai Fung a try. After all, this restaurant is now pretty globalized and widely accepted by many countries. The question is whether the actual restaurant in Taiwan would taste the same or better then the franchises elsewhere in the world? This Taipei 101 outlet is the most... More

In college, a 101 course is an introductory course but at Din Tai Fung at Taipei 101, this is a graduate level education! This was our first stop after checking in at our hotel in Taipei and it was fantastic. We missed going to the Michelin Star rated restaurant of the same name in Hong Kong, but made up for... More

Din Tai Feng is a chain restaurant known for Xiaolongbao dumplings. It's a very popular restaurant for travellers and locals. There's usually a 45-minute wait to get a table, but the wait is worth it. Both the food and the service are excellent. The staff are well trained and seem to enjoy their work. Prices are higher than average. We... More

Not realizing how the extremely widespread nor extensive in terms of branches of this restaurant is, on the recommendation of a colleague we went to the Din Tai Fung at 101 Taiwan on our last night in Taiwan after a most successful 10 day tour of this country, From our point of view it certainly lived up to its reputation....

We came at 11:30am& there's already a very long queue. Average waiting time is about 30min-60min. But once seated, service is prompt and serving of food is fast.
