My two favorite foods in China are Peking Duck and dumplings. Din Tai Fung is the gold standard for dumplings. This is the second time here and again did not disappoint. We ordered a wide variety of dumplings (pork, seafood, vegetarian) and they were all delicious. Piping hot, tasty fillings, and filled with juice. YUM! We order some sides that... More

A place is up to date decor and cleanness, service is excellent. Popular location the wait time is to be expect. Overall the food quality is not so bad, but little pricey for simple meal and snack. Of course compare to original Taipei Din Tai Fung this place is lack of technique and quality.

I'd had better meals for the price that we paid for 2 orders of Xiao Long Bao and 1/4 steamed chicken. Definitely not worth the hype as we waited forever to have the food come out! And when it did, it was cold and lost its flavor. I don't even understand why it's part of a destination!!

Much like Din Tai Fung anywhere in the world, the quality and taste are very good, but the price matches if not exceeds this. The price of the Shanghai branch is the same as those back in Australia (in terms of AUD) even though in terms of local currency it is massively priced (think about how much a plate of... More

This Ding Tai Fung offers a Shanghai perspective to the menu. Besides local flavour, it also has a lot more cold dishes (appetizers). The prices are similar to other outlets... a family of 4 would spend about RMB 500 to 700 (dependent on what you order of course).

This is a nice restaurant to get some famous soup dumplings but don't forget to try some of the other nice local dishes they serve. This is a bit cosier branch than the one over in Pudong. Better suited for a nice dinner.

This could be the shortest review ever written: "A-mazing soup dumplings. Go. Eat. Repeat!". That being said, Din Tai Fung is more than some of the best soup dumplings in town -- although if you're craving dumplings, you've arrived home. Unassuming, delicious food served steaming at your table. The menu - although purposefully dumping-centric - has a wide variety of... More

It was worth our day going over... eventhough the place is not the fanciest, the food is remarkable. Authentic, not pricy and delicious.

We went to this restaurant twice to enjoy their delicious dumplings. We never ate such tasty ones. They offer a wide range of dumplings and other excellent dishes. The restaurant is very comfortable and the staff extremely kind. The bill is fare.

Staying in Jing'an

Neighbourhood Profile
Jing'an
The heart of this neighborhood is the Jing'an Temple, while the main artery of excitement and entertainment is West Nanjing Road. Close to the Former French Concession, the area has a similar draw for foreign residents but displays a more commercial character. Large, flashy malls, luxe residential high-rises and trendy nightlife areas can be found along West Nanjing Road, but areas off the busy street have the same quiet cafes and independent boutiques that many people think of as distinctive of the Former French Concession. Jing'an is less encased in amber, though, and it's possible to immerse yourself more fully in the energy of China's most bustling metropolis here.
