Sat at the base of Taipei 101 building the restaurant can be busy but there is a good queuing system. We went at 8pm and there was only a 10 minute wait, it had been 20 minutes 2 hours earlier.
I'm not a fan of Chinese food in the UK so was surprised I enjoyed the meal so much. There is a wide choice of fillings for the dumplings, including fish and a great choice of side orders.
The staff were very helpful, especially the best way to eat the dumplings and what sauces to use.
We were the last ones in the restaurant at closing time but never felt rushed.

Thank Ann W

We have eaten at Din Tai Fung in Singapore, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Costa Mesa, and now in the original restaurant in Taipei. The food is delicious and consistently that way in every branch we have eaten in. Don't miss their Xiaolongbao, dumplings filled with broth and pork or shrimp, they are wonderful and very fun, if somewhat challenging to eat, it is their signature dish. All of their other dim sum and chinese style dishes are very, very good as well.
It's a restaurant not to be missed.

Can wait up to an hr if in large group of 3 or more as smaller 2 pax is easier to get seats. The restaurant very spacious and not so noisy. Always order the dumplings and fried rice. they will also refill chinese hot tea for you and i think is free. they have 2 sizes for the dishes - half portion and full portion. they can advise you to take which size.

It took us around an hour to get a table for 3 people at 9pm. We ordered xiao long bao as recommended by our local friend, some chicken, small dish of noodle. Overall everything is good, but the portion is quite small for 3 of us.

The highlighted of this restaurant is service, as long as we get a table, the process from order to serve is really quick. The food is hot và these waitress is so nice.
