I absolutely loved this restaurant. The soup dumplings are to die for IMO. They were so good I went back again the following day. During a recent trip to Japan I made a point of visiting a couple of Din Tai Fung restaurants throughout both Tokyo and Kyoto. My only caution would be a eat carefully as the soup inside... More

I have eaten at many Din Tai Fung locations across Asia, and this one in Yuyuan Garden is convenient and has excellent food. As a vegetarian, I find they have good choices for dumplings and vegetable side dishes. Service is quick and it's an easy place to grab a good meal. They are on the second floor of a larger... More

We have eaten at their restaurant in Sydney and Hong Kong and always enjoy the meal. This was no exception. We had a selection of dumpling including their soup dumplings, Xiao Long Bao. Excellent meal. Recommend if you like a dumpling.

The restaurant is just outside an exit (#8 I think) from YuYuan Garden complex, and across the street. It's set back from the road & we missed it initially, looking only at the "old" side of the street (it's on the new side). It's upstairs and has its name across the front. We arrived a bit before noon on a... More

Showing my friends from oversea, we recently visited Yu garden and had tried Shanghai dim sum in this restaurant. Although it's a bit noisy, the shao long bao was delicious and the hosts are friendly and attentive. We ordered different kinds and every kind has the character. Nice lunch

On a cold rainy day while showing YuYang Gardens to some friends from California, we decided to find someplace warm for lunch. The dumplings were excellent... Definitely try the Siew Long Bao with hairy crab, we had seconds! The portion sizes were good, small dumplings absolutely fresh. No roving carts, but they delivered your order as the dishes were ready.... More

We ate here with a group and our tour leader ordered for us. The chain's specialty soup dumplings were delicious, and everything else was also of very good quality. Din Tai Fung has a lot of locations in Shanghai, as well as some in other major Chinese cities. We were looking forward to this and were not disappointed.

It was a pretty nice lunch - not as great as the Michelin star place in Hong Kong but good place to go for a nice lunch and right in the heart of Old Shanghai

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Shanghai’s original walls live on in the curve of the streets that serve as the border to the old city. An aerial view shows a clear circular outline and parts of the original wall are preserved as monuments to the ancient past. The main tourist attraction of Yuyuan (which means Yu garden, though it is often redundantly referred to as Yuyuan Garden) draws hordes of tourists every day, but wandering the streets around the complex reveals more exciting attractions such as food and antique markets. There are also streets lined with shops peddling everyday wares such as Chinese dining ware and craft notions that can be even more enticing to visitors uninterested in the usual tourist fare.
