Din Tai Fung, 5-6 Henrietta Street, WC2E

Where: Din Tai Fung, 5-6 Henrietta Street, WC2E

When: November 

London has always held a special place in its heart for Asian cuisine of all varieties. Whether you decide to seek out pho in Hoxton, dumplings in Soho or curry in the East End, there are some brilliantly authentic delicious options to choose from. And, this autumn, we can add another entry to that list.

Din Tai Fung is a world-renowned Taiwanese restaurant with 140 branches in 14 territories. It was originally slated to open in London last September, was delayed until this summer and is now due to open in November. Many suspected that the flagship London restaurant would be located at Tottenham Court Road’s new Centre Point development. However, it has now been revealed that the capital’s first Din Tai Fung will open in Covent Garden, at the heart of London’s theatre district.    

The eatery is set to span two levels and will accept walk-ins only - this shouldn’t be a problem for eager diners however, as the restaurant will be able to accommodate 250 people. They will be serving up their signature xiao long bao (steamed soup pork dumplings) and dim sum range that has become famous all over the world.
