Just as with the other locations in this city, it's best to go at an odd time to beat crowds. We were there around 3 and only had to wait for about 10 minutes. Stellar food

I have been eating here since I was 8. The quality hasn't changed. The best quality restaurant I ever been too. Nothing much else to say except for there is a long line.

Somehow the original Din Tai Fung manages to taste better than all the other excellent branches! Maybe it's the humble beginnings but it just works!!
