Love this place. Such a nice little restaurant . Food is always good here, loads of vegan options and good service. Price is reasonable. Standout dish for me is the onion noodle dish- so delicious!

Went to this place with a friend and decided to share a couple of these Bao's. We got the pulled pork and soft shell crab. OMG they were divine. I wanted to eat a dozen! I am going back next weekend to try more flavours....More

We ordered nearly every type of bao on the menu and they were all delicious. When the first plate came out there was a small bug on the plate from the lettuce, but our server dealt with it so well and took the dessert off...More

Trendy hotspot in Newtown that deserves to be. Love the crispy pork and soft shell crab bao. Fast service but go early on Saturday evening as you have to queue from 6 ish onwards.

When I heard this place had finally re-opened at 184 King Street Newtown (the old N2 gelato location), I jumped on it. The website said they're currently BYO, and as there are a few bottle shops in the main street, I grabbed an IPA from...More

Reminded me of Yum Bun only with considerably longer wait. Food is cooked to order which really detracted from my 'eat-and-go' intentions. As its new I'm sure they are ironing out their processes so I'd definitely return.

pork is too hard to chew, and pretty oily, one of the bao is good , but the other is overcooked or kept for too long

The first time I tried Belly Bao was amazing and ever since then I've been coming back so many different times. I have nearly tried everything on the menu and can say that everything is tasty and would not disappoint at all! I'd recommend getting...More

One of my absolute favourite finds. I'm not huge on Asian food and don't really have anything to compare it with but this bao is to die for!! My favourite is the chicken with the pesto sauce. It's not too expensive either. The staff are...More

Its a shame to say this-I really really wanted to love belly bao, having tried bao several times in London, but it just didnt hit the mark. We tried all the bao on the menu, and found the buns not fluffy and soft enough, and...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
