This place, though a commercial franchise, is something special. Its earned its fame in Taiwan. The original pork "shao long bao" are really out of this world. I make a point to take any and all friends and family that come to visit to this joint. It simply can't be missed.

As always the food was great but it is hard to stay in line and wait for a table for almost an hour. The Dumplings are delicious and the Fried Rice just great. The quality of the food is consistent. I have eaten in Din Tai Fung at several places already and you never go wrong with it.

Our must visit when ever we are back, loved the Xiao long pau, seaweed/tofu side dish, prawn fried rice, spicy shrimp wantons. Very good service and hot tea is replenish constantly. It does get very busy during lunch hours go early or later.

The food here is great, always with a high standard and nice service. Prepare for a long wait for a seat, especially on weekends and holidays, more than an hour...

I’ve been to 10+ Din Tai Fung restaurants in several countries. There are few restaurant chains that can maintain consistent quality and great food, but this restaurant chain has their process down.

I have a standard order that never fails. Green beans, pork soup dumplings (Din Tai Fung’s specialty), and fried rice (any flavor). So good!!

This particular store in Taichung is always busy, so be prepared to wait in line for your table. It’s noisy with a ton of people constantly funneling in and out. If you’re looking for a nice, quiet place to eat, this is not the restaurant for you. But if you don’t at least try Din Tai Fung’s 小籠包 (soup dumplings), then shame on you. :)
