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. This is a 2 star Michelin guide restaurant and as soon as you start to eat your first dish you understand why. The menu offers specialities from the north of China and I must admit I never heard of at least half of the dishes in the menu even if I’m a frequent Chinese food eater. You will find many types of noodles, dumplings, fish and meat skewers, rice dishes and more...

  2. 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...
