I brought my son in for some noodles for lunch, based on the menu available online. As their actual menu is completely and utterly different, we had to go elsewhere. I wouldn't mind, but the website menu for Sticks and Broth is woefully outdated too, and I suffered there similarly for dinner with friends (it's a sister restaurant ). I'm... More

A super little spot, I really liked this quaint hideaway. From the moment you walk in it's nice the is basic but has everything on it that you need. I chose chicken dumplings, a couple bao buns and a main dish. The food was lovely nicely spiced and tasted genuinely authentic. The only thing I would say is that the... More

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 trying out! Nice food, good service and reasonably priced.

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 sauce and 4 pieces of cucumber. So a single bao, some chicken in sauce, rice... More

I cannot explain how much I love this place and am only disappointed that I never tried it sooner. You really do just have to try it to believe it, you wont be disappointed.

Anyone who knows me knows that if there's an bao shaped opportunity, I'm all over it. The severe dearth of bao-related goodness in my otherwise perfectly satisfying city is something that continues to baffle and upset me in equal measure. Bristol's effort was very good. Not quite Dim Sum Su level. Or Bao in London. But very respectable indeed. Took... More

Came in for a late dinner. Greeted by a lovely friendly young lady who explained the menu. Small menu but a good variety of options. I had the prawn bao and the tofu bao both of which I enjoyed. My partner had a bigger meal with chicken, served in a bento dish. Good portion sizes and we liked the small,... More

This is the second time I have ordered from here and the will now be the last. The chicken is like something my dog ate and then spat out- so picked all the chicken out and was left with a crap green curry with no sauce. Our laksa soup was so bland. Extremely disappointed again. Get some proper meat before... More
