We visited here as the neighbouring 'Sticks and Broth' was full and they recommend we try here. I thought they might have the same owner as Bao Wow doesn't have a toilet, so we were told we could the facilities in Sticks and Broth. My...More

I think they're owned by the same folks as Sticks & Broth across Baldwin Street. Fluffy buns stuffed with all sorts of fillings, like roast pork, chicken, beef and tofu. My favourites are pork belly with peanut sauce, and the kimchee with tofu. I'm a...More

I went here today on my lunch break. Ordered a chicken katsu curry for the not so modest sum of £9.50! I expected great things. The sauce was way too salty, and the chicken was very dry. As a "salad", I got 3 slices of...More

I have walked past this place so many times and the food always looked good so we popped in here for dinner before going to the hippodrome. Fast and friendly service, good value for money and delicious food. Would recommend and definitely go back again.

The staff were super friendly, the food was delicious and I loved the Bao. the Chairman Bao was awesome! This is a cheap eats quick food place not a posh night out. The food was great and we enjoyed our time here

Good Asian street food is hard to come by and I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of this place. Service is on the slower side, so going for lunch may be tricky but where time is less of the essence this is certainly worth...More

I've eaten here since it opened. Was a big fan of everything they have on the menu. After a 2 month break, I had lunch there today and was disappointed. The Bao lacked ingredients and was bland, the Terikaki chicken came with rice covered in...More
