    Hands down the best dumplings in Sydney. Pretty much all their noodle dishes are also amazing. Good service, clean visible kitchen and large seating area with nice decor. I find this place much better than their other locations as well.

    Went here last night. I don't see the fuss either. It was very busy and the waiters seemed very caught up in what they were doing than actually looking after the customers. I tried to get the attention of staff on a number of occasions. My dish was nice not too spicy but deffo have a kick however the dumplings we not great I got pork and veg and there was no pork that I could taste even asked if I got the correct ones. the response I got was that it was correct with 10% pork. Really 10% in a dumpling is ting no wonder I couldn't taste it. When the staff were rude and handed us a receipt and didn't even look at us. Wouldn't be rushing back to this place. Plenty of dumpling places in Sydney that are friendlier and have better Dumplings.

    This was my first experience at a dumplings restaurant.

    I honestly don't see what the fuss is about for a restaurant that is purely dedicated to dumplings. If you want to have a coronary over dumplings then this is the place for you but if you are like me and get bored of one thing and need a variety other than dumplings then don't go here. Otherwise you will eat dumplings til you are blue in the face!!!

    I guess you just have to be a real foodie and a trend follower of food crazes such as what some ppl are with this place.

    Din Tai Fung is undoubtedly the best dumpling joint in Sydney and perhaps the world! I can easily consume a dozen of their Xiao Long Bao with its delicate thin skin and warm porky broth on the inside. I have tried my share of these soupy dumplings across Sydney and have yet to find one that betters DTF's thin delicate dumpling wrappers. The pork dumplings are not cheap at 4 pieces for $5.80, but they are a worthwhile treat. My other favourites are the crab meat and roe with pork dumplings and shrimp and pork shao mai. Be warned though - it can be pricey to fill up on just these dumplings.

    It can be quite a wait to get in but the dumplings are ohh sooo good. The xiao long bow are the best I've had - in fact, this was the first time I've experience dumplings with soup on the inside... that's right - the inside! The restaurant has a card on the table showing you how to eat them with step by step instructions beside the vinegar and soy sauce. Delicious!

    A couple colleagues and I went to Din Tai Fung for lunch last week. It was my first time and after all the rave reviews I had heard about this place, my expectations were pretty high. I can confirm that their signature dish, xiao long bao (pork dumplings) is an absolute winner - hot and fresh, soupy and tasty. Another winning dish was their vegetable and wonton with tangy sauce - loved the sauce. I think the prices are slightly higher compared to other similar restaurants and the range is more on the limited side. The next time I return, I'm quite certain I'll just order a heap of pork dumplings and make a meal out of it.

    I am always allured by the promise of fresh, soupy dumplings and this is one of the most popular franchises in the world. However I always leave a little hungry as the portions are small and the dishes are quite expensive. We came here with an e-book and we were only told when we were paying our bill that the 'special' dishes weren't eligible for our 25% off voucher. I didn't mind paying but I felt this should have been stipulated up front.

    Din Tai Fung is pretty much the global trendsetter for the latest high-end Shanghai craze, and what makes it long lasting is their ever consistent and always delicious food offerings.

    You can almost never go wrong with your order. Their xiao long bao (pork dumpling) is globally known and has won many awards, so you cannot go pass it. Also, a lot of my friends like their fried rice with chicken fillet which in itself can serve as a simple lunch meal.

    On my last visit, my friend asked me to try their spicy noodle and it was delightful it has just enough hotness to make it exciting yet still gives the other flavour to work towards a distinctive taste.

    If you are a food adventurer, try the drunken chicken served cold as a beautiful entre and great opener for your palate. Also try the silken tofu and century egg served with pork floss and soya sauce this dish is as authentic as you can go with its full-on strong flavour, and even made better with high quality tofu and beautifully prepared century eggs that just melt in your mouth.

    Please be aware that they have strict booking and seating policy (you will need everyone in your party to arrive before they take you to your seat). Also ask for a basket to put your things to avoid the strong vinegar smell on your belongings.

    One of the best place in town for dumplings!! Go the xiao loong bao!!! Quick and fast service. Great!
  • bondisurfer   8 reviews
    Love it. They can be busy at lunch, meaning you might have to share tables, although the dinner wait is not too long. Lovely xiao loong bao and all varieties of dumplings. Has to be once of the best dumpling places I have been to in Sydney. For dessert, the red bean and taro buns are also warm, sweet and soft - all good things.
