    It was short of staff but with many customers and we had to go out of our way to find someone to place an order. Choice of food was not similar to the restaurant in Taiwan. Quite disappointed

    Unfortunately, I am no longer living in Melbourne. I always try my best to eat here when I come to Melbourne CBD. Best Chinese food in an affordable price in the heart of the city.

    The staff were indifferent and cold, and the food was nothing special. Lots of choices in Melbourne city for such quality and service at much lower cost.

    Good food and service. Although it is a bit pricey for what it is, I always enjoy the food there. The xialong bao are always a winner. If the portion sizes were a bit bigger, I would definitely give it a higher score and go there more often.

    Good food and quick service, but desserts had run out by 8.30pm. Atmosphere is fun and staff are reasonably attentive. Booking was easy - too busy to just walk in.

    We went on a day where there were no wontons or noodles. Apparently their machine had broken down. This was actually good in a way so that we could try different dishes. I must say the crumbed chicken was crispy and well seasoned however the meat used was very uneven and some pieces had just crumbled skin. It’s not what I expected it to be. The egg fried rice, hot sour soup, prawn pancake, steamed dessert buns were yummy as usual. Staff were very apologetic about the limited menu. Service here is very very good compared to other Chinese restaurants.

    I booked my table through the folk (even received a confirmation email) however the restaurant wasn't aware of my booking! Luckily I could get a table but if this booking system is NOT recognized by the restaurant then what's the point booking through your website!! Very disappointed! I would rather give a call to the restaurant directly!

    Food were great as always. The price was towards high side for dumplings if not using the promo from the fork, wish to have more promo and festival in future.

    Love the venue, with air con and soft relaxing jazzy music. Food was very good, normally $$ as you're paying for atmosphere, but 50% off is awesome!

    3W: Delicious, Fast, Good experience The service was fast. Food was delicious as always (they also have new menu), we had Xiao Long Bao (must try if you haven't so), spicy noodle with chicken is also great, spicyness is not too spicy and give distinct flavor, aroma and numb sensation. The place has nice ambience, music and lighting. Overall, had good experience.

    I’m a huge fan of DTF, have been to several branches in Taipei, Singapore, China and now in Melbourne. It does not disappoint. Beautiful Xiao Long Bao. All other dumplings delicious too, as well as beef and prawn. Tried the dessert this time it was good too.

About the restaurant

Dumpling destination

The Emporium is so hot right now - especially with Din Tai Fung in the building. That’s right. dumpling devotees gather round because the renowned dumpling house has set up comfortably on the fourth floor of the popular shopping centre, accommodating 235 die-hard dumpling fans in the large venue. How many folds does the signature xiao long bao soup dumpling have? 1, 2, 3, 4? Wrong. There are 18 folds in this bad boy, each one folded with mathematical precision. It’s a work of art, not simply a dumpring. Bring your friends and family and get ready for a full on feast. Din Tai Fung dumpling style.

Best dish: xiao long bao soup dumpling
