Square Meal Review of Baozi Inn ?

‘Harsh’ service from ‘unpleasant staff’ can be a little off-putting, but Baozi Inn’s ‘blissful’ food and low prices means it’s always busy with punters clamouring for a quick, fiery bite. The best advice is to bypass the doughy ‘baozis’ (steamed savoury buns) in favour of more flavoursome treats – from appetite-whetting pork wontons or crescent-shaped cheng du dumplings doused in chilli oil to the house special of spicy beef noodles or one of the cold vegetable dishes such as a salad of spinach and beans or spicy cucumber. The restaurant’s two low-ceilinged dining rooms, garlanded with Mao-era bric-a-brac, evoke ‘Communist kitsch’, while brisk table-turning ensures the ever-present queues keep moving. It’s no longer the only Szechuan joint in Chinatown, but this noodle and dumpling specialist is still a welcome change from some of its tired Cantonese competitors.

  1. Small stopover at Baozi Inn in Chinatown.
    This small restaurant is very nice, it plunges you into a kitsch Communist atmosphere.
    Dumplings were fantastic, very tasty and had a good texture...
