    Where it all began! The discerning Din Tai Fung fans will definitely agree that the food here is of slight better quality than overseas branches. Go for the xiao long bao & fried rice! #ThomtoriEats

    Din Tai Fung will always have my favorite soup dumplings. The Xinyi Rd. location is the original and the wait can be very long. Favorite soup dumplings are the shrimp with loofah. Try fried rice too!

    Worth the wait in line! We were two persons and had to wait for 90 minutes (just go to a cafe nearby) at around 12 pm but it was so worth it! Best xianlaobao are the pork and shrimp ones.

    The original Din Tai Fung store. Be prepared to wait at least 45 mins during lunch hour to get a table. XLB's are a must as well as other non dumpling items. Such as fried rice and Taro buns.

    The Xiao Long Bao is divine! My friends and I also ordered the 红油抄手 and we left satisfied. The service in this place was superb and almost every waiter/waitress spoke English/Korean and Japanese.

    The original location! Get the original dumplings, spicy pork and chives dumplings, and some fried dumplings of your choice! The line goes by pretty quick even with the queue.

    Go before 11 to beat the lunch and tourist rush. Try the shrimp and squash xiaolongbao and the taro desserts xiaolongbao.

    Food asides, Din Tai Fung is famous for its bathroom which is exceptionally clean with seats that warms. Complete your experience with a rare opportunity to enjoy this highly sought after facility.

    The original Din Tai Fung. Get here early on a week day (10am) and you must get pork soup dumplings, spicy shrimp and pork wontons, and the chocolate dumplings. Enjoy!

    I've always avoided the original location due to the crowds, but there's no line if you get there right when they open! (a few minutes before 10am on weekdays) XLB breakfast ftw.

    Try coming here during off-peak hrs. But if you visit while there's a big line...the wait is worth it. Enjoy walking around the area a bit during your wait, and the number system is helpful, too

    Besides their famous soup dumplings, you should try their chicken/beef soups, pork chop noodle soup, zhajiang mian, fish dumplings, shrimp & pork shumai, mini black sesame bun, mini taro bun

    The legendary xiaolongbao are worth a try. This is the original Din Tai Fung that started the famous international chain. It's a bit pricey but worth to check it out. Staff speak many languages.

    They have a waiting app which will send you 3 push notifications prior to your number being called. You do have to physically go and get a number first tho, then just scan the QR code in the app.

    Original xiao long bao restaurant. Come a bit late and you don't need to wait that long. Staff are just too fast that might stress you a bit and you would eat it faster than normal. Worth to try once.

    Waits range from 50-150 minutes. Get your number and take a walk down Yong Kang. Better than HK and Japan locations; worth the wait

    If you come to Taiwan, you must come to this restaurant! For my friends&I, it's worth to wait 20 minutes for a table. I think Taro xiao long pao is so yummy!

    If you are in Taiwan, you have to eat at Din Tai Fung! Its the most famous restaurant in Taiwan. Their specialty is xiao long bao (小籠包), soup filled steamed dumplings.

    It's packed during lunch hours, be prepared to wait. After trying this and Malaysia's Pavilion Din Tai Fung, I'd have to say I prefer Pavilion's version of the xiao long bao which has a thinner skin.

    If there is a long line and you are a party of 2, hang by the menu boards and if you are willing to share a table with others the hostess will grab you!

    The original Din Tai Fung, home of the xiao long bao / soup dumpling. Long queues but ask for a seat at one of the communal tables to skip the line!

    Original location. However, everything tasted just like the one in HK. I guess it's great they try to have the same standards & quality worldwide.

    Stuffed. Love everything everytime. Better with a big group. Although i do prefer other locations instead of this one.

    we "waited" two hours, but got to walk around da'an district in the interim--the xiaolongbao are probably slightly overrated, but it's a fantastic experience!

    Long queues. Expect at least 1 hour wait on weekdays. This is where it all started. Must try the staples and definitely recommended.

    Really fast and efficient! 小笼包 is freshly made ( and juicy ) and so is their 蒸饺! Two thumbs up for Din Tai Fung.

    Try their truffle xiao long bao. You can order per piece since it's more pricey. But it sure is worth-it!

    The best 小籠包。and they should have credit card payment instead of cash only.
