“Great food, great price!”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

It was quick service, attentive, and fantastic food. I went with a group of 9 on a Saturday night and we were greeted at the door with an explanation on how you order (at the counter) and found a table for all of us. They even have a Bao and Beer or Bao and Booze option that is quite the deal.
Our food came out quickly and every single one in my party was raving about how delicious it was. Being vegan means I have a hard time finding things to eat when out with a group of non-vegans, but that was not the case at Take A Bao. In fact the non-vegans were eating my Tofu Popcorn. They have a full bar and even had the Dodger game on for us. It was a wonderful experience and I will undoubtedly come back again. And again.

“Great Salads”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

If you're tired of all the bland chain restaurants this is your place. They have a great 8 veggie salad. Truely outstanding, you can add chicken or tofu if you like. They also have great baos as their name suggests. Small valet parking lot so get there right at 1100 for lunch. They serve beer and wine as well.

Chinese Chicken Salad takeout and it was very good, all the fresh ingredients you expect. There is free valet and the staff is accommodating. Go!

“We Came For the Bao!”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

My hubby and I had read about Take A Bao in Westways Magazine awhile back and knew we had to make a stop if we were ever in Studio City. Last weekend, we were passing by Studio City, so made a lunch stop at Take A Bao. We ordered the Bao and loved it! We each had an Original Hoisin Pork Bao. My hubby enjoyed the Pulled Pork Bao and I enjoyed the Thai Peanut Chicken Bao. We also shared an amazing tasting salad.

You place your order at the counter. The food is made fresh and brought out to your table. Everything we ate was tasty good. :-)

Take A Bao is a fun, casual place to dine. The place is clean. The service is excellent. We loved the atmosphere and good vibe of this place.

There is more to the menu than just Bao.

“Extensive Menu”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Clean, modern decor and excellent service. Orders are taken at the counter as you enter, where there is also a board with menu of the day. Everything is cooked fresh. Try the cooked salmon on a bed of rice and vegetables.
