Awful food. Overcooked noodles, uninteresting sauce presented with no care and soup, that was both bland and faintly unpleasant. The staff were cheerful enough but the food was so poor I could barely bring myself to leave a tip.

Chinese restaurants don't get much more ‘revolutionary’ than this. By revolutionary, I mean the decor which looks like a room in a Northern Chinese village pasted with red lanterns, propaganda music and newspaper cut-outs. In fact, not even in Beijing you will find a restaurant that transforms you 50 years back. The main review is only half right about the food. Most of the dishes, like the Baozi meal deal and porridge (小米粥) are Northern Chinese dishes. Because of the cold climate in the north,...

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’...

Went here for lunch on a Thursday. Restaurant was half-full when we arrived and almost full when we left. Decor is a little dark and the tables/chairs are a little low for my liking (I'm tall) but overall it is fine, and does achieve a sort of ‘chinese inn’ feel. I had the stir-fried pork with dried chillis and sauce on noodles. The pork was very tender, the noodles were nice (though a fraction too soft for my liking) and the overall taste was delicious. The spiciness was just about right – hot...

Awful Chinese restaurant — but successful with people (most are tourists and kids) that have no clue about authentic Chinese food. The noodles are mushy and the soup was bland — and super sodium enriched (plus cold tea was full of sugar). The service was also pushy — they asked us several times if we wanted another drink, and constantly annoyed us while eating. This place is taking us for a ride — but do Londoners really care about good Chinese food, or just to fill their stomach after a night out?

The restaurant offers a much more limited menu than Bar Shu but the quality of the cooking is very high. It's a great place to get a quick and inexpensive meal. The service was great and it has a very friendly atmosphere. This is also a great place to eat if you happen to be on your own.
