First stop in seoul as it was just below our hotel. Great dumpling, we had the different sampler each in which you get 10 of them, and some grilled dumplings with two beers for 30 euro. Did notice any difference to the other din tai restuarants as we tried a few of them. We had to wait 5 minutes for... More

From the get go we should have left after having them bring us three different teapots because the tea was merely lukewarm. As the meal progressed, it was more of the same. The food came out warm but not hot! I have eaten at the Bellevue, Seattle, Los Angeles and Australia outlets and all were far better than this one:(... More

I just love Din Tai Fung. The dumplings are great as well as most of the other dishes. It's nice that you can see them make the dumplings 'live'. Only downside when your eating there alone: they don' t have a solo menu. Since I want to have dumplings but also veggies and noodles I always end up with way... More

Beware! For those who know Din Tai Fung from Taiwan (or HK, S'pore or China) this one is a very pale comparison!! So disappointing!! The ambiance is not there, the staff is poorly managed and the food is definitely not like the others! A terrible franchise.. The Taiwanese owners should take back this franchise and put the magic back into... More

Had a late lunch at 3pm and the place was empty. I tried the Xialongbao sampler, Spicy Cucumber, Shrimp and Pork shumai, and the Spicy Pork Wonton, washing it all down with Peach ice tea. Everything came at once, and some of it was not very warm. The Xialongbao were way below standard in both taste and execution. The shumai... More

A group of six of us stopped into this well-known franchised dumpling restaurant on a hot summer Sunday. We waited about 10 mins for a table, but as we departed the line was much longer. The food was plentiful and very tasty, without being expensive. We sampled Dim Sum dumplings, wanton rolls, fried rice, and kimchi cucumbers. The service was... More

Before my visit to here, I had tried many Din Tain Feng branches in Taiwan, China, Hong kong and Singapore. To be honest dumplings are better in Taiwan, but the atmosphere here was better to enjoy and the staffs were both friendly and helpful. Quality of food was also good and tasty especially loved the fried rice and chinese cold... More

Excellent dim sums. The fried rice and spicy fried chicken are brilliant as well.We visited it twice on our ten day visit to Seoul.

Whenever I am sick I go here and order the spiciest soups. For some reason the broth heals me when I have a cold. The red paste Korean soups don't always do that for me. So every time I catch a slight cold or feel fatigued, I come here. Of course, it is better in Taiwan, but I'm not trying... More
