went for weekday lunch at around 1215pm.
Already a queue was forming, but my party had only 3 persons, so I could get a seat pretty quickly.
Ordered the following dishes:
1) Xiaolong bao (the classic little dragon dumplings) - 5 out of 5 stars. I like the soup that oozes out of the filling. This won't disappoint.
2) Crabmeat xiaolong bao - 3.5 out of 5 stars. More expensive than the classic version, but I didn't really like the crabmeat taste in this. A bit too fishy for my liking.
3) vegetables and meat dumpling - 3.5 out of 5 stars. so-so.
4) Spinach with garlic - 4.5 out of 5 stars. Nice garlic taste in the dish. Vegetables were nicely cooked.
5) Stewed beef with noodles (Hong Siew Ngow Yok Mien) - 3.5 out of 5 stars. Ok. Good for a cold day, since it is slightly spicy and is piping hot.
Total bill was HKD 420 for 3 persons and 5 dishes.

There's more than Xiao Long Bao
knowmoreChris (2 Review(s))
Last few months I’ve paid a few visits to the popular Taiwanese chain – Din Tai Fung (鼎泰豐), the restaurant that’s famous for their juicy, handmade Xiao Long Bao (小籠包), in which the popularity of the chain has made the restaurant spawned outlets worldwide.
The Xiao Long Bao itself is best be eaten ASAP, in order to taste it’s full profile of flavor: the great combination of the soup and the pork meat inside, sealed in the tender and fragile dumpling skin outside. Din Tai Fung’s Xiao Long Bao is also available in different, more precious variations: crab oil, black truffle etc.
The default serving of their Xiao Long Bao is 6pcs per bamboo container, which for food hunters like me is not enough, so that I’ve ordered it again and again.
Apart from their signature dish, the restaurant also serves other food including fried rice, dim sums etc, but here’s the other food really catched my attention: Shallow-fried Pork Dumplings (煎餃子).
I liked it’s slightly-thicker dumpling skin and the also juicy pork meat inside, but most importantly is because of the interesting “flat” piece of skin on top, this has made the dumplings has the added crispiness.
After finished the meal, don’t forget to say goodbye with this cute Xiao Long Bao man standing outside this Michelin starred restaurant!

Heaven on a spoon

I am new to Hong Kong and relatively un-experienced with Dim Sum. Over the years I have found dim sum to be unexciting for me and never found a dish I really liked. Until coming here. Now, I'm in love with Xiao Long Bao.
I have been here twice in 1 month, and for good reason. The first time we (my wife and I) went around 8pm and waited for about 5 minutes. The second we went for lunch and there was no wait. The second time I ordered an entire set of Xiao Long Bao pork dumplings to myself.
The hot and sour soup is also very good, especially with a little vinegar added. The greens can be a little bland but worth experimenting with since they are not expensive.
The price is very well priced. Especially considering that you are eating at a Michelin rated world renowned establishment. The service is also exceptional, especially for Hong Kong.
Would recommend to everyone to try at least once. And, please follow the instructions on the card at your table on how to prepare your Xiao Long Bao.

Yummy Xiao Long Bao's
GirlyFoodCritic (12 Review(s))
I had a friend in town who loved xio long bao's so I decided to take him to Din Tai Fung to try out their famous Xiao Long Bao's.
As soon as I opened the menu I saw that they had truffle xiao long bao!!! We proceeded to order 1 regular one and 1 truffle one. the regular one came first and it was delish! The skin was thin and the bao was very juicy bursting with flavor. Next came the truffle ones. I was pleasantly surprised at how good it tasted! On first thought I didn't think Truffle would taste right in the bao's but i am a big fan of truffle so i thought I would give it a try. We also ordered the jelly fish, the duck tongue which was very good. We decided to order another order of regular xiao long bao's and one more order of truffle xiao long bao's. We ended up eating 12 each! I will for sure be going back for more. One thing that I did not like was the long wait, we waited for close to half and hour.... it was very very busy, so in the future I will go before it's peak time or after.

Very Good Dumplings
sloui001 (3 Review(s))
I came here for dinner on a Sunday night and it was very busy! I normally go to the Din Tai Fung in Arcadia (Los Angeles). I love the US location but I was very impressed with the wider selection at this location, especially the truffle dumplings! I don't personally love truffles but they were very good (and quite pricey!!). Regardless of the high price tag (they are truffles after all), I would probably order them again since they are so unique. The pork dumplings are always my favorite. In the LA locaton, each serving consists of 10 dumplings vs the 6 here. That was nice so I could try more dishes. I also had the shrimp dumplings (and maybe pork also?) in special sauce. I didn't love it. I feel like the shrimp was overwhelming and I think the special sauce was mainly soy sauce. The string beans were yummy. My friend really liked them.
Given the huge crowds of people waiting, our wait time was surpringly not that long. The service was excellent but it is definitely on the pricier side. Overall, I had a great meal and I would come back again.
