Best dumplings I've ever had. A sort of fast food vibe, with excellent service, amazing menu selection and really excellent food, it's no wonder these guys are opening up all over the world.

Having been our first meal in China, I thought it was good but was hard to tell given the context of being the beginning of the trip and we hadn't obviously tried any other places. A "local" who's pretty up on the scene confirmed it's a good place to try though. GREAT location in proximity to the Ritz-Carlton. Otherwise hidden... More

After visiting one of the Beijing places tried this one. Beijing one was a lot more like a restaurant and this a railway station. On TA DTF generally gets a very high score, but this restaurant gets more local traffic than the shopping mall it is established in. So the locals seems to appreciate the quality or the deal. Dim...

I came here for lunch with some colleagues. The dumplings were uniformly excellent and the service prompt and attentive. I was gratified to find a number of vegetarian options on the menu.

Ding Tai Fung has always been my favorite restaurant. Dumplings, chicken soup, and deep fried pork chop are all on my must order list. What I like the most about this restaurant chain is their consistency; no matter on foods or services.

A great place to visit after having been to the Observatory in Shanghai World Financial Centre. You can watch your Dim Sung being prepared from your table as the kitchen is in full view. The food was fabulous. Service efficient and quick. Go early as very popular and queues build up quickly.

The place is loved by foreigners - all super easy to order and good hygene. However as they are mostly basic dishes - it is rather over rated and a little on the higher side of the price points. But to get used to Chinese Food and for the convenience and stable performance is a recommendation.

Yes, it's a chain restaurant but the food really is terrific. It's quick, and there's a lot of variety for both vegetarians and meat eaters.

Staying in Xintiandi

Neighbourhood Profile
The refurbishment of a block of old shikumen into a carless entertainment center called Xintiandi, filled with restaurants, shops and bars, turned this area below South Huangpi Road into one of Shanghai’s most fashionable areas. Luxe condos house people who can afford the high-end brands that fill the malls and shops along Madang Road. The pleasant Taipinghu Park provides the area with green space and is also home to Shanghai Fashion Week twice a year. It’s not all glitter and glamour, though, as the rise of Danshui Road has given the Xintiandi area a shot of toned-down character. Small bars and cafes, mostly owned by locals, have people hanging out in a formerly quiet, unassuming part of the neighborhood.
