Nice food, good atmosphere but frankly overpriced. I think $7 a bao bun is a bit rich and although they are tasty and well presented it doesn’t make up for it. There is a lot of choice on King St in Newtown and this wouldn’t...More

We went because it was featured in the good food guide (cheap eats) and maybe our expectations were too high but we didn’t think it was particularly cheap and the food was at best average. The service however was good. My three year old enjoyed...More

Went for family lunch. For 7 bucks u only get one ball. Food is delicious and service it’s quiet good. They also do a great passion ginger cocktail. As usual Newtown parking is a pain

Had a really good meal here with a wide variety of different Baos. So tasty and so much variety that it was hard to choose. The ice tea was brilliant and a really cool spot to go out as a family. Do TRY

We got an Uber from the harbour especially to visit this restaurant, as my daughter had been there on a previous occasion. This is a small establishment, but the Bao are delightful. Very soft and beautifully filled. The meal was lovely but the waitress really...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
