We Chose that Dumpling Restaurant for our Last evening as we like Chinese Food. We had to wait a Few Minutes but it was well Worth it. The Fried Greens, VEG Dumplings, Fried shrimp with pineapple were Great. Short Waiting Time for meals. Tea for free. Prices ok. A Reccomendation !

Just had dinner there with my family on the recommendation of our hotel but was really disappointed. The xiao long bao was decent but everything else we ordered was no good. The prawn shao mei had tasteless prawns and meat that doesn't taste fresh with very thick skin, the pork chop egg fried rice is flat with no fragrance, the... More

Some excellent tong bao. They come in 10, so if you want to try the oolong tea tong bao, you'll have 20 baos to contend with. Excellent cold dishes too, which are not on the menu, so ask the waitress. Lunch closes 2:30pm, last orders 2pm.

If you don't have too much time, I would recommend this place over Dingtaifeng. The main chef used to work at DTF, so you can expect the same quality, and cheaper as well. It may be a bit hard to find, but it is worth the walk.

Jin Din Rou opens late, as matter of the fact, it's where the night life is. Nearby there is also a movie theater so we went there for dinner before going to the movies. We ordered the hot and sour soup with dumplings pork chop noodle and some veggies. Overall the service was good, and the food were all right.... More

The main dining space located in the basement. A real attraction to Japanese but not local people in Taipei. The steamed dumplings taste good but are still not so good as Din Tai Fung. However, the good point is that you don't have to wait long before having Xiao Long Bao. If you do not like waiting, this is the... More

Almost exclusively catering to Japanese tourists Jing Din Lou serves impeccable Xiao Long Bao, in clean facilities, attentive staff. A Chinese family was being served in a separate room, to prove that it is not exclusively supporting its restaurants located in Japan. To my taste the famed grean tea Xiao Long Bao did not live its expectations but don't miss... More
