Always enjoy the meal here, and the decoration of this 101 branch is brilliant.
Every time you visited here every spot is clean and you can especially check the pendant light cover if crystal, I check every time and yes, it is.
The dishes you...order will please your stomach and feel satisfied with the flavor, the taste and the display. You are highly recommended to 101 for shopping and great meals.More
With many branches all over the world, is Din Tai Fung is really that good? We headed for Taipei to check out their Xiao Long Bao.
Din Tai Fung, Taipei 101 branch accepts reservations for tour groups only with everyone on a first come, first...serve basis.
Outside the restaurant the excitement grows and the large crowds of friends and family gathered. The queue zigzag back and forth in front of the store with a ling wait. We had a short wait of 15 minutes. We were a tour group.
Once inside the restaurant, the atmosphere was calmer as diners concentrate on ordering the large variety of dim sum menu.
The decor is basically white walls and ceilings with recessed lighting and naturally wood paneling. It represents a professional atmosphere and clean look.
Food & Beverage:
The tour group has a pre-set menu included (1) Tofu & Seaweed Salad, (2) Sweet & Sour Soup, (3)Spicy Wonton, (4) Xiao Long Bao, (5) Fish Dumpling, (6) Shrimp Dumpling, (7) Vegetable Dumpling, (8) Fried Egg Fried Rice, (9) Chopped Pea Shoots, and (10) Red Bean Dessert Dumpling.
Xiao Ling Bao lived up to its reputation. The dumpling skin was delicate and thin with the 18 pinch folds trademark. Delicious soup inside the dumpling and the meat was tasty.
The were sufficient dishes for the vegetarian in the crowd. Vegetable Dumpling was excellent and tasty.
Since our party was 16 in our tour group, we had several pots of tea as well as boiled water.
Once everyone was seated, the procession of the dim sum came out so fast and the lazy Susie serving table was spinning even faster, one blink of an eye and the food passed you by. So the only picture I was able to get was the world famous Xiao Long Bao.
The servers would announce the dish aloud. The severs came around frequently to refill the teapots.
While the Hong Kong branch of Din Tai Fung was awarded the Michelin star, the Taipei 101 branch had good quality control and standards. So many varieties of dumplings it was like a DUMPLING DEPOT ... at Din Tai Fung (Taipei 101 Branch).More
This is a great place for dumplings! Food tastes great! Service is like no other! Reasonably priced. Get there early for dinner if you are hungry! Suggest around 4:40-5 for the shortest wait time. Once you get past that time, plan on being in queue...for at least 30 minutes depending on how many persons are in your party. Would recommend to try!More
I had Xiaolongbao and Shrimp Xiaolongbao for lunch here.
1. Guided in various languages
I had to wait because there were so many people. But maybe because the store was big, I could get in quickly!
And it was good that the order was called...in Korean and the menu was well explained in Korean!! Most stores in Taiwan had only English or Japanese explanations, but this place also had good Korean explanations.
2. Good tastes
I couldn't forget the taste of Shrimp Xiaolongbao.
If you come to Taiwan, you must try Xiaolongbao here. I'ts so delicious!
I was so happy that the staff were so kind. But there were so many people that it was very noisy.
It was expensive compared to other foods in Taiwan. But overall, I think it's a reasonable price. It would be good to try it at least once.More
You can never go wrong with DTF. Food is consistent and delicious. We always order the dumplings, veggies and appetizer. Food taste the same at every location but I prefer 101 because it is spacious and you can shop after. Service is excellent.
This was indeed one of the best meals we had in Taipei. From start to finish, service and food was nothing but great. We expected a long wait, but their system is so efficient which makes it not so bad. We ordered a little bit...of everything, highly recommend sharing everything. Prices were so reasonable, and please note they only take cash. The highlight of our meal was the spicy wontons. The wonton meat was perfectly seasoned and that sauce was exceptional. I had spicy wontons at many places before, but this place makes it the best in my opinion. The sauce is not super spicy either, so don’t worry for those that are not into spicy food. Its just a small light kick of spice. We also got the soup dumplings (crab and pork), pork chop, the dry noodles, and the shrimp dumpling. Everything was really good, not one dish I dislike. Service here was great too, staff spoke good English.More

That’s right, only the massive tour groups get to reserve. Most of their branches have a system where you put your name down, and then they’ll call you when there’s a spot (but all members of the party have to be there or you go back to the queue). Shouldn’t have to wait long - get the menu and start deciding what you want in the mean time and ‘people watch’ :).
