    Don't come if you are famous world class DIN TAI FUNG. This is a copycat restaurant. It's a 3.5 star of of 5. The food is so so. But definitely shameless for copying the real one to make money.

    Steamed soup dumplings with pork fillings (Xiao long bao) is my fave💗 Best fried rice ever is the fried rice with egg, shrimp, and ham🍤🍳

    "I always make sure I get the soup dumplings. They're affordable and obviously made in-house. Finish off that meal with a Coke Plus over ice!" - Chef Matt Blondin Read more

    Dimsums (particularly Xiao long bao) are superb. Other dishes such as noodles or Kung pao weren't as great as dimsums but still nice. Worth to visit.

    These are alright but definitely not as great as some places downtown! It just misses the taste of real Shanghai xiaolongbao

    Not the famous Din Tai Fung but their soup dumplings (xiao long bao) is surprisingly comparable! We also loved the fried pork buns, onion pancakes, and the hot and sour soup. Fast service too

    In my top 5 list for dumpling rest is in the Tdot, to be fair the list probably only has 5 in total. Not as good as Xiao Long Bao in Scarb and a far cry from the namesake in Asia!!!

    Sprinkle a bit (or a little) shredded ginger and red vinegar to every bite. So good w/ dumplings/xiao long bao and the pancakes! Also agree that the braised noodle soup is super delicious. Share it.

    Little dragon buns are a must. For a unique dessert, try the black sesame dumplings, kind of like a luxurious ball of peanut butter in your mouth (but better!)

    Growing up, I've always had the double-boiled chicken noodle soup here...the broth is so flavorful. And the xiaolongbao is so yummy as well! My sister and I fight for it everytime!

    The minced beef pie tasted just as great as the xiao long baos (similar filling). Beef Pancake wrap is okay... I'd skip it. The shrimp dishes are great tho!
