Restaurant Name… Din Tai Fung
Location… Mall of the Emirates, Dubai
Perfect for.. A nice authentic street-food chinese meal
What we Ordered… Juicy lamb bun, mini red bean buns, Szechuan vegetable and chicken wontons
Despite the restaurant being absolutely packed, the staff is extremely courteous, friendly and very helpful. The food was authentic and it was nice to be able to watch the multiple chefs in the kitchen make dumplings at full speed. We do look forward to coming back as we still need to try the Xiaolong bao and other dishes.
You need to wait. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing for the restaurant, but you will always need to wait to get in. Additionally, the juicy lamb bun is not as juicy as it sounds. But it’s not a total deal breaker.
Always remember to tip your server!
