Very creative recipes and flavors! The blend of Western and Asian flavors is a unique experience. The baoritto was our personal favorite

The boas were soft and nice. But the fried chicken not so wow. Also order a drink never came chased up on it and when the bill came noticed they charge for the drink that never came and my chase up drink was charged. Lucky got I saw this before paying as 1 drink was $18.

Absolutely delicious food, service staff were very friendly & knowledgeable. As we were first time diners there, we asked a lot of questions regarding the menu & staff were always happy to assist.
The dining area was very roomy with the music not too loud, so we could still have a conversation. Great value for money and would definitely visit again!

Love the fusion take on the dishes - it works rather well. Unfortunately the music level meant that we had to eat, then go somewhere quieter for dessert and conversation.

The food was absolutely amazing, I can't get enough of this place. I have been here before with my boyfriend and we loved it. I brought my best friend last weekend and it did not disappoint. Could not recommend this place enough, I will be back for sure!!

Straight off the bat the staff were lovely as they showed us to the table in a quiet corner of the restaurant. We got the curry cheese fries to share, which was a lovely way to start the meal- perfectly seasoned and the curry sauce was super moorish. We then got the Beef Short Rib Bao and the Pork Belly Bao. Both were amazing, the meat being super tender and the bun soft and delicious. The standout was the Pork with the crackling, which added a crunchy element that took it to the next level. Finally we got the special to share- Bao noodles with mushrooms and pecorino cheese. I was blown away- the salty pecorino cheese sauce with the mushrooms, noodles and Chinese sausage were a perfect match made in heaven. Could of had 5 servings of the noodles and been absolutely over the moon. Overall an amazing experience and would recommend to anyone in Sydney!

Amazing order system. Brilliant service, outstanding food and top notch menu. Second time on Sunday eve but will be back. Also brought a few couples and they would be going back as well. Must check this place out. Baos were 10/10 and fried chicken was just as good.

Food is definitely great! I felt sad as I took the last bite of my crackling pork bao. I didn’t want it to end! :(
It was so tasty! Vibe is also outstanding - a lot of Instagrammable decor and furnishings.

I will come back soon.
