Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I've been to this jewel of Markham more than once and I keep coming back. One virtue that Ding Tai Fung has that keeps it on my favourites list is the consistency. Every time I visit I have the same great experience, right from the caring and attentive staff, who greet you warmly as you arrive, to the servers who take their time to explain the food and recommend items, to the food itself which is always fresh, and great tasting. This is a classic dim sum joint that pays homage to the Shanghai Style of cooking. On this visit for the review, we came on a busy day, waited only ten minutes as we did have a reservation but also know that this is a busy place. I do recommend a reservation as I've had people tell me they have waited a long time in line. This was a group visit so we ordered a plethora of dishes some common and some new. The servers brought the food out slowly, which was great as we had little room on the table to put many of the dishes. It also gave us a pause between dishes so we could actually enjoy it hot and right from the kitchen. I have been to so many Dim Sum places that just simply pile the dishes on the table and then take off and leave you in an uncomfortable situation and afraid you'll spill something. All the dishes that came out were of high quality and a good standard of presentation and flavour. I really enjoyed the soup-filled dumplings, the stir-fried lamb and the shrimp fried rice. I typically enjoy most of the dishes at this restaurant. I highly recommend this place and I will be back.

Was here 20 years ago visiting Toronto. Food quality is still excellent and consistent. Have not had the authentic Shanghai hot and sour soup for years since there is no restaurant in Calgary can make any. Probably pricey compare with other Shanghai restaurant, but the food quality worth the price. This Ding Tai Fung offers more food selection than the ones in Taipei (mainly for tourists, not for locals due to high pricing).

We keep going back to the restaurant because it offers tasty, no-frills, very reasonably priced food. It is a must visit when we have out of town visitors craving dim sum. They have plenty of menu options, but we usually just stick to the dim sum. Nothing more to say: good food, fast service, and reasonable pricing.

I am well aware that this restaurant is not associated with the Taiwanese based chain sharing a similar name. However, they aspire to serve the same type of broth filled dumplings. There is no comparison between the two. There is a very limited selection of dim sum served here. Almost all are pork based. No shrimp or beef dumplings. At least the dumplings were edible but not great.The Shanghai Noodles were very bland. The stewed beef pancake wrap tasted odd and was not edible. The dished were quite expensive considering the size and the quality.

Second visit and amazing as the first. The level of consistency we have experienced here is unlike any other restaurant. The dumplings are perfect every time. The wood ear mushroom salad is a must. Wontons in spicy sauce are fantastic. This is now a must on every trip!!

Took my family for the first time for Dim Sum. Great selection, almost too much to choose from. Dishes are large so be careful. We ended up packing half of it. Bit tough to find with so many little restaurants in the same strip. Great spot!

Been to this restaurant many times for years. No disappointment although no surprise. If just for food, this restaurant won't be wrong.

Do not hesitate! This place is excellent. The best soup filled dumplings I have ever had. Also - ask for the snow pea leaf, it’s so good! Everything we ordered was delicious and we had great service.

Being a person who would travel miles to taste the genuine cuisine, many years ago we did travel to the origin city of soupy Xiao Long Bao (the city of Nan Xiang, just outside Shanghai) and had tasted the real ones, and then tasting again of the soupy Xiao Long Bao and other dishes, many more times in the old city of Shanghai. We would like to say they are very genuine here in Markham. I saw some reviews below that it was fake here and would like to comment that the dishes were very genuine to the real Shanghai taste, to be fair to the wonderful chefs here. The restaurant, although not particularly spacious, especially for couples, would be comfortable enough for a small group of 4-8. The couple tables are quite tightly close to each other but still by the window so if you come here for the real Shanghai taste and atmosphere (but not quiet romance), it should fulfil both your stomach and your mind well. For the two of us we ordered one basket of the soupy Xiao Long Bao, the fried dumplings, some buns and a dish of vegetables and it was around $50 tax incl. so it was ok consider the food was really yummy. Next time I would come with a group so we could order many other dishes too, which we saw other customers happily enjoying! Tips to eat soupy Xiao Long Bao without ruining it: use your chopsticks to lightly hold the top of the bun (the knot) to secure it. Then gently remove it from the steamer. To tell whether the chef is good or not: if you do it gently, the bottom of the bun will not be stuck to the steamer and break, thus releasing all the soup inside. Advice from a gourmet lover who did line up many times to get in the best bun restaurant in old Shanghai!

Don't let the non-descript strip mall location fool you - Ding Tai Fung serves up excellent dim sum with great service. You come here for the dumplings and they are excellent - be sure to order the Sticky Rice and Meat and Steamed Chive and Meat options. The wait staff are very knowledgable and will guide you through the menu if you're not sure what to order. Prices are very reasonable and the dishes served quickly.

It's been a long time since I last came here for lunch. The beef noodle soup was good. Beef was well made, no fats. The dumping is OK too.

We loved the soupy dumplings here although they are a bit pricey! I recently went to the San Francisco branch of the famous Din Tai Fung chain of restaurants & thought this was part of that franchise but it is not ... and the soupy dumplings here are much tastier!

This is a little off the beaten path and very hard to park anywhere close. It frankly is not my favourite style of food but everybody else raves. There is no rhyme or reason how the food comes out and I don't know what to recommend. The kitchen is immaculate!
