We have been going to Din Tai Fung ever since they were down the street but the current location is pretty great. Prepare yourself for a long wait at certain times but best times to go I found are when they first open and about 2 or 3pm. The crab Xiaolongbao, BBQ ribs, noodles with spicy sauce and the spinach are our regular go-to items but really everything is wonderful.

This is an interesting place- the dumplings are very good- subtle, delicate and steamer hot. The staff on the night we went was attentive, thoughtful and efficient. Only one item we wanted was off the menu- they taper production of some dumplings towards closing and they only offer some items on weekends. The atmosphere is clean and sexy modern- and the place is PACKED- people were waiting for over an hour to get seating. What makes it interesting is not the food (the food is very good), it is the elevation of something that is a street snack and generally priced accordingly to a higher price point- let me be clear the quality of the ingredients made it worth it. Very very impressed.

If you are in a hurry, this is not the place for you. Invariably, there is a long line of people waiting to get a seat, no matter what the time of the day. However, their waiting list management is very efficient, so go reserve your seat and then go do some more shopping - you will get a text on your mobile saying it seems time to return and grab your table. I met there with a friend - we had both lived in Shanghai and wanted to relive the experience. She traveled for 3 1/2 hours and I for 1 1/2 hours, we were that keen on tasting some authentic dumplings! the food was wonderful, the kitchen where you can see how these dumplings are made is fun to while away your waiting time. The service is lovely, if you are other familiar with the food and how it’s is eaten, you get an introduction so you won't burn your mouth with the hot broth inside your dumplings. Of course, there is more than just dumplings, and we so enjoyed our nostalgic lunch!

Even though this restaurant has noodle soups, fried noodles, fried rice, etc on the menu, this food joint is known for XiaoLongBao and Dumplings. In particular, I like the Snow Crab & Pork XiaoLongBao ($14 for 10) and Sweet Taro XiaoLongBao ($8 for 10). It is definitely pricey but the the light steam bun texture combined with the tasty filling makes it worthwhile. Be prepared to wait for seating.
