Great food, great ambiance, excellent service and fabulous drinks (try the Guizhou Donkey for a refreshing drink) Everything tasted so fresh and it was truly enjoyed. The restaurant had some really cool re-purposed decor and very clean. It was worth the wait and I will return for sure. They have a great sense of humor and their full menu is... More

This was one of the best Chinese fusion restaurants I have ever been to. I was overall impressed with every one of the dishes we ordered. It is a MUST try for anyone who enjoys Chinese cuisine!! Go early, we got there when it opened and it filled up fast. I will definitely be returning with my fiance.

We ate at Bao Bei on a Sunday night. We had no trouble getting a table. I have never tasted this level of inovation and quality in Chinese food. Every morsal of food was incredible! This is a must try.

I frequently visit vancouver and always plan a stop at bao bei. I'll be brief as it's rather simple - every dish I've ever had was great, the cocktail list is inventive, ever changing, and some of the best stiffest in the city, the pork belly buns are off the chart, and the staff is friendly and inviting. I've eaten... More

We have been attempting to indulge at this classy Chinese Brasserie since it opened in Chinatown. But the waits have always been in excess of 45-60 minutes. We passed the restaurant on a Sunday night and OMG there was no wait. We were not disappointed. We ordered veggie pot stickers, Chinese cukes marinated, lamb sandwich with cilantro, kick a--fried rice... More

This was the best meal we had in Vancouver. I am singing its praises to everyone I talk to about my vacation. The food is inventive Chinese. We had sturgeon rolled out, steamed and served with a broth. It was out of this world good. The pickled vegetables were great, and I hate anything pickled. My wife couldn’t believe I... More

We really enjoyed being at Bao Bei. It was lively with a long line outside the door and we took the last two bar seats. The music was good and although the bartender was swamped with a full bar and server line, he was in good humor and we didn't feel neglected. The food was awesome. We ordered lots of... More

Well.. We ordered several things from the menu trying to find a weak point, but we couldn't! All the food here is great and very well made.. The service was great and they were very nice with our daughter too (even if she did her best to scare other customers, and destroy the place..). I will definitively go back whenever... More
