Reviews for The Bao

Somewhat upscale Chinese spot that is pretty intimate. The soup dumplings were great and my favorite part, the service was fine and accommodating. The wontons in chili oil weren't very spicy so I'm not sure if the Chinese food was more Americanized to appeal to more customers. The powdered sugar on the meat we ordered was a bit strange and the meat was dry so I definitely don't recommend order the sweet rib. Highly recommend the xiaolongbao!

Orange Chicken was all white meat, tender. Sauce not overly sweet, mixed with a subtle spice. Pork Baos were the best, with hint of vinegar on side. Good balance of soup and substance. Chili Fried Chicken was a bit dry and the small cuts although flavorful might have been cooked a bit too long.

On a busy street with lots of other places to stop. This place has a black awning and you walk up a couple of stairs but easy to get into. It's a small spot but they have lots of seating that's pretty close together and a quick turn around. All the dishes were coming out of the kitchen pretty fast. We got there at just about noon and there were plenty of seats but it filled up soon. We ordered the King Fu XLB, string beans, Shanghai noodles, and chili chicken. We also tried full review
