The food is absolutely delicious! We once again ordered the spicy shrimp dish which we loved last time and it was just as wonderful this time! Spring rolls beautifully crispy Dan Dan noodles totally different from any I’ve had before but loved them I have...been to this restaurant several times and never had a bao dish! So we got the trip - loved the pork - would only get that next time. The dumpling sauce was too salty but the dumplings themselves were wonderful. The owner is always present and stops at every table all night to greet you and thank you for coming.More

We had a variety of dishes ( roti with curry sauce, bulgogi beef baos, octopus, chicken wings, blistered peppers, and Sichuan dumplings). Everything was delicious. Service is prompt and friendly. The owner makes a point to greet everyone and is so gracious. A fantastic place

I loved this restaurant and so did my family! I studied abroad in Hong Kong and traveled Asia in college, and this is the most authentic food I have found in the area. I loved trying the dishes and I can’t wait to go back....The owner was a sweet and lovely person. She greeted us at the door and took the time to tell us about the menu. In fact, the whole staff was very nice. I am a local and I work with tourists and will be recommending this place to others in the future.More

Place was good and certainly offers a different set of flavors than you’ll find elsewhere in the area however I can’t say it’s quite as good as the reviews I’d read ahead of my visit. Loved Singapore style chili shrimp, I haven’t found that killer...flavor in the states and very pleased to have found it. Pork belly bao was excellent and much better than fried shrimp bao. Rice tots were hyped to us but really just a novelty item with little flavor. Go here if you’re in town but there are better places.More

Seriously, run...don’t walk....RUN to Wicked Bao in Fernandina Beach. This is our first GREAT experience with Asian food in the sunshine state. Chinese, Taiwanese, Korean, Japanese influences abound, so there’s something for everyone. My husband absolutely dove into the Summer Teriyaki Chicken Ramen. The chicken...is teriyaki, but otherworldly! I’ve never had teriyaki chicken so soft and flavorful. We also sampled the Buttermilk Fried Chicken Bao, the Bulgogi Bao (with in house made kimchi) and the Sichuan Dumplings. All amazing! I have no words for how delicious and authentic it all is. Natalie, the owner, greeted us & explained the menu...such hospitality! There is parking outside near this tiny place at the end of a road, which is easy to find, but when you get there, your not quite sure you’re in the right place. You ARE! And it’s so modern & clean inside. It’s wicked good.More

We saw where this was a highly rated restaurant and so we decided to try it. We were very unfamiliar with the menu items but the employee was VERY helpful in making suggestions. We ordered and all three of our selections were beyond wonderful! AND...the food arrived in just minutes of us sitting down. The food was extraordinary and the service was outstanding! Definitely the place to go for amazing food and an unbelievable price!More

So I see I’m just adding to what everyone else thinks is a FANTASTIC place to eat here. The food is flavorful and temp is hot with great variety. Be aware no substitutions but I don’t know why you would do that anyways. It’s perfect...like it is. The owner is so friendly, and came out to talk to us about the menu. You can sit outside, at the bar, or inside at a table. We ordered small plates and bao one night and another night tried the beef soup which was yummmm! You can order a bottle of wine which we did…saved some -$ over separate glasses: we will be back!!!More
