    Terrible Experience: Very Expensive; Definitely Not A Good-Value Restaurant


    This was the worst restaurant experience we had in Taipei. The food tasted so-so at best; the wait time was unacceptably long for the food to be served; and the price was the most expensive (comparing to all other restaurants we have dined in Taipei, which were all Michelin 3-, 2-, or 1-star), i.e. we spent US dollars $225 for two persons without ordering any alcohol, drink, or dish with expensive ingredients. We also noticed that one chef on the ground floor, after touching the trash can, didn't wash his hands, and went back directly to his dough-rolling tasks. We really don't know why this restaurant was rated so well. We had a number of amazing meals in Taipei. This one fell incredibly short of expectations. We definitely will not go back to this restaurant again and do not recommend it.

    Superb food and excellent staff.


    It's understood that this chain is consistent and solid. The ingredients and execution of each dish are fantastic, the broths are full-bodied and flavorful, the meats and seafood tender and juicy, and the dumplings are absolutely heavenly. Expect to pay around NT2000 and up for 2 people.

    Something good for all


    Booking is recommended. We were very lucky a table for 2. The special appetizer on the 1st photo superior fried small fish, wine chicken, and cold cut. The fried small fish was crunchy and sweet. The wine chicken just right, and the cold cut meat like melted in your mouth. The XLB the skin so thin and juicy. The fried radish cake so tasty just wanted more. This squash soup so refreshing you more to take home. I'll sure to book this again if when I'm in Taipei.

    Excellent food and staffs


    Food was doubtlessly perfect, but the most important was the staffs. I had been treated well when I stepped in the restaurant, and the lady who mainly serviced our table was super great as well. Delicious food with wonderful staffs make the restaurant the best. 食物好吃也要有優秀的服務人員才成就完美的一餐。當天坐二樓圓桌旁,所有的服務生都很好,而服務我們桌的主要女服務人員更是超級棒!色香味及服務都是一流的!

    Very delicious Xiao Long Bao


    I've tried quite a few Xiao Long Bao restaurants in Taipei, and I think Dian Shui Lou has the best tasting Xiao Long Bao. The size was just right and each flavour really stands out. They have many different flavours, and now they have added the new eight styles Xiao Long Bao in one order, so you can try eight different flavours at one time. The service of this branch was excellent and very friendly staff. I will try the other dishes when I am in Taipei.
