The dumplings are superb!

We ordered three x5 dumplings: prawn, prawn with "hairy crab" and chicken. All delicious!

We were very keen to order the fried fish but it had sold out as very popular

We also ordered to share the wonton soup, fried rice and prawn with "hairy crab". All incredibly delicious! Our food was quite randomly staggered (up to 20mins) so be aware things might arrive at different times.

This restaurant is a chain and is popular with locals and tourists.

DTF is THE typical restaurant for foreigners .... but start to see Chinese. It is simple, clean and the service is at western standard. DTF sell Xia lampao about 5-6 times the normal price ( it is usually 1 rmb per piece and here it is 6-8). But the over all remain an affordable restaurant. What makes this DTF different from all others is .... THe view. Having such a view for dinner and paying only 600 rmb for 4 persons is .... the deal of city....

DTF, a now globally operating chain restaurant, offers a range of Chinese dishes, including their signature xiaolongbao. The reason I return again and again to DTF -- mostly for lunch -- isn't that I believe their xiaolongbao are the best or the range of dishes is the biggest & best, rather it is the consistency and quality of the dishes, as well as the service, which generally doesn't vary much. Yes, it's pricier than other Chinese restaurants offering similar fare but you pay for the consistency and general quality of the food. It's a safe place to take out of town visitors and tourists as the menu is pretty straightforward and I haven't had any surprises where anyone was disappointed. This specific location is quite a bit smaller than the one in the Super Brands Mall and without a view but worth a visit if in the SWFC or nearby.

Note there are not that many tables for larger groups (> 5 people) as in other locations and this one offers mainly tables for 2-4 guest plus a couple of booths. The spicy shrimp wontons are my favorite and highly recommended.

This place is for tourist only. Yes their dumplings are good but not exceptional ! Come on if you are ready to spend that much for dumplings you might either be a tourist who just stay one week here or someone who only eat at fancy places just for sharing it after on weibo or weixin.

every time I am in Shanghai I pay a visit to this restaurant as I loved their dim sum for years , Still this last experience was not at the precedent level, some dim sum were too dry , service was terrible and too quick, you need to eat at light speed and that s not good for digestion, the vegetables , though pricey, not well cooked , so this time only three stars and hoping that next visit will be as good as the one made in 2015
For te same money you can get better options for sure , as prices are raising continously
