First it was opening in the Centre Point development, then it actually opened in Covent Garden and now over two years since the whole saga started, Din Tai Fung is finally coming to Tottenham Court Road this year. The Taiwanese dim sum restaurant, which has over 160 sites worldwide, will be taking over the former Vivi site, which’ll have 290 covers, rather than the rooftop space it was originally eyeing up.
There was massive hype surrounding the Covent Garden opening back in 2018 (remember the predictions of five-hour queues) so it’ll be interesting to see how mad everyone goes for the xiaolongbao this time around.
