Everything we have had so far was amazing! The staff was very helpful and they spoke many languages, like Japanese, Korean and english. Definitely can cater to foreign tourists. Always a favourite when going back to Taiwan.

This is the second of three locations I've been to this trip. Not too long of a line up and service was efficient. Food arrived within minutes of me sitting down. Xiaolongbao was delicious. I can never have enough of it. I also tried the Chinese mustard greens and pork noodle soup. It was also very yummy.

This place has become an institution but I still can't get why so many tourists make the pilgrimage and brave the insane queues to eat what is basically the same food you would get at any other Din Tai Fung. Still, don't let me stop you.

This is a really amazing restaurant and the queues are the first clue to how good the food is. Everything we tried was absolutely delicious. Their franchises are spreading quickly around the world and if they can maintain the efficiency, friendliness and unique qualities we experienced here in Taipei it will be a huge success. Highly recommended.

The original Din Tai Fung and the best. Much cheaper than you will find in the overseas franchises. The Xao Long Bao is sensational, and to be honest really shines over everything else on the menu. The wait can be 15-30 minutes so pick your visit time wisely and push through the crowd right to the counter to get a... More

The food is good but did not meet the expectations. Do not take reservation .I did not enjoy the food, after long time (One and a half hours ) waiting for table and spent an Half hour eating in the very crowded and noisy restaurant.

If you want to taste the famous xiao long bao you will have to wake up and go camp in line in order to eat the xiao long bao which I personally think is slightly overrated, people all around the world say that you have to try it but I say that it is just mediocre and over hyped

The xialongbao, the shuimai..... it never disappoints. Big branch int eh basement of 101. Be aware that it is crowded and there are often lines. If you are a party of 1 or 2 you'll be in good shape...Groups, check in and take a walk. For as busy as it is, the DTF staff always delivers quality and pleasant service.
