TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Famous Taiwanese dim sum chain, Din Tai Fung (鼎泰豐), is set to open its third restaurant in Dubai, U.A.E. before the end of the year.

The restaurant, located in the Dubai Mall, is scheduled to open its doors for the first time this month, and all work on the site has been completed, reports suggest.

Din Tai Fung has become a smash hit in Dubai, with long queues frequently seen at the restaurant’s two current locations in the Mall of the Emirates and Al Ghurair Centre.

The new location is set to be the chain’s most grand in Dubai, and will feature outdoor seating overlooking the world-famous Dubai Fountain.

The menu is expected to be similar to that at the restaurant's other two Dubai branches, offering a strong selection of Taiwanese fare.

Reports suggest the menu will include one or two mystery dishes which are not available at the two current locations.

Din Tai Fung is undergoing a period of international expansion, with the chain’s first and flagship U.K. restaurant in central London commencing operations on Dec. 5.
