A bit of a wait when I arrived at 8pm on a Friday evening but there were souvenir/food stuff stalls nearby to while the time away while you wait. Excellent service and food was delicious and fresh, especially the stir-fried vegetables. They even offered to serve the sweet redbean dumplings later without me asking as they suggested it's best eaten as a dessert. Half portions also available so suitable for small appetites or if you want to try a variety of dishes. And of course, do not miss trying the different type of dumplings including the originals and the one with spicy chili oil that you must try. As I have a seafood allergy, I was especially glad that they had many vegetable dumpling options.

This restaurant is below street level in the Taipei 101 building. It’s down to the right before you enter the 101. We went with a local colleague for lunch and got there a bit before the lunch rush – which is recommended. The space is huge; the area where the dumplings are prepared is enclosed in glass, so you can see them being made. We tried several dishes including the Pork XiaoLong Bao, Steamed Vegetable & Ground Pork Dumplings, and Pork Fried Rice with Egg. It was all super with the dumplings being just amazing. As a westerner, the Snow Fungus Sweet Soup was good, but the texture was between tapioca and slimy. It was really special for our host to pick it out, so I at about half, and it was lightly sweet. The service is super. The staff swarm the floor and simply take care of you instantly – and yet somehow avoid making you feel rushed. The decor is a bit modern and clean, but I thought the place was attractive with a really good noise level considering the hundreds of patrons. All in all, highly recommended!
