I am cheating a little with this review as nothing actually passed our lips at Baozi Inn the other evening. However, our 5 minute experience compelled me to write a few words. The place was busy but there were a couple of free tables. A rather gruff waiter pointed to a table right by the serving area so we asked if we could have the free table in the corner. Apparently not; strange considering we'd just heard him tell a couple of other customers that they seated everyone on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. A couple of menus were plonked down on the table and as we struggled to find anywhere to put our coats etc. a rather surly waitress came over to take our drinks order. I requested a glass of water; “still or sparkling” was the immediate response, which rather amused and annoyed me considering the informal surroundings. In the meantime, my fellow diner had been bumped three of fours times by passing staff so we decided to leave. If you're in Chinatown and want a cheap meal with rather more pleasant service, then I'd highly recommend Leong's Legends Continues on Lisle St where we had an excellent meal instead.
