I came for lunch with a work colleague. Naturally we ordered the Shanghai soup dumplings along with a beef soup. Both were simple yet tasty and delivered to our table in short order. I've naturally had better dumplings in HK but this place is decent to get your fix. I find it humorous that in SoCal, one has to wait... More

This center is simply too pricey even for quality brand goods. You can bargain the price and get discounts but still you have to pay much more than elsewhere in Shanghai. If you anyway find something you would like to purchase and have negotiated a resonable price, be lucky if they accept a credit card. They did not take Visa... More

We have had lunches and dinners at many Din Tai Fungs in many cities, and we all agreed the one at Xintiandi is still the best of all! Their Soup Dumplings is simply the best, and so are many if not all of their cuisines. All service staff are well trained to provide excellent service. Pick the less busy time... More

I was treated to lunch here by the agency that I booked my travel plans with. The food was yummy, but comparatively expensive for the portion size against other traditional Chinese restaurants. For the price at this restaurants you would have been able to feed three pepole. Having said all that, the presentation, service and quality of the food was... More

I have been in asia for years way before Din Tai Fung became famous. I dont know what they did or who they paid to get NY times to review them so high but its by far over rated and exaggerated. There are many better places to eat dumplings and Dim Sum. This place aint cheap and really the food... More

We are DTF fans. Had a quick xiao long Bao (10) and fried pork fried rice meal with son. Can't go wrong with these. It cost me 135 RMB. Tip- for tourists this is a great place as their staff always understand English/ menus are in English as well

I like this brach in HK and I wanted to try it in Shanghai. Everything is the same. Only difference is that in Shanghai there is an option to have 6 or 12 pieces. I can be sure in this place. Food is always good. It's also not a cheap place.

The service is great and the place is very clean. The dishes are well done, xian long bao and noodles with spicy sesame paste are my favourites. But prices are too high for a traditional dim sum meal, in others places you can eat the same things with the same quality for less. For me is too touristic and "fancy"... More

Staying in Xintiandi

Neighbourhood Profile
The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park provides the area with green space and is also home to Shanghai Fashion Week twice a year. It’s not all glitter and glamour, though, as the rise of Danshui Road has given the Xintiandi area a shot of toned-down character. Small bars and cafes, mostly owned by locals, have people hanging out in a formerly quiet, unassuming part of the neighborhood.
