I came here for lunch with some colleagues. The dumplings were uniformly excellent and the service prompt and attentive. I was gratified to find a number of vegetarian options on the menu.

Ding Tai Fung has always been my favorite restaurant. Dumplings, chicken soup, and deep fried pork chop are all on my must order list. What I like the most about this restaurant chain is their consistency; no matter on foods or services.

A great place to visit after having been to the Observatory in Shanghai World Financial Centre. You can watch your Dim Sung being prepared from your table as the kitchen is in full view. The food was fabulous. Service efficient and quick. Go early as very popular and queues build up quickly.

The place is loved by foreigners - all super easy to order and good hygene. However as they are mostly basic dishes - it is rather over rated and a little on the higher side of the price points. But to get used to Chinese Food and for the convenience and stable performance is a recommendation.

Yes, it's a chain restaurant but the food really is terrific. It's quick, and there's a lot of variety for both vegetarians and meat eaters.

With a window to the kitchen area you can see how they making all these lovely dumplings. Try out a few different but still pork is a favorite. Small dumplings in a soup is a good one and the spicy cucumber as a start. Friendly staff and will help you out with how to eat. Have a chain of restaurants.

My two favorite foods in China are Peking Duck and dumplings. Din Tai Fung is the gold standard for dumplings. This is the second time here and again did not disappoint. We ordered a wide variety of dumplings (pork, seafood, vegetarian) and they were all delicious. Piping hot, tasty fillings, and filled with juice. YUM! We order some sides that... More

A place is up to date decor and cleanness, service is excellent. Popular location the wait time is to be expect. Overall the food quality is not so bad, but little pricey for simple meal and snack. Of course compare to original Taipei Din Tai Fung this place is lack of technique and quality.

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
