Fill that belly of yours with our house made baos, baogers, bao noodles, fried chicken, desserts and more. Rehydrate yourself with our cocktails, mocktails, jugs and beers.
Our lively yet cosy restaurant awaits good-fun-having, paired with friendly service, and good vibes!
Although the fillings were great, the bao themselves were really thin. Overly priced. Some staff were very friendly, but the maitre d was very rude. Drinks and dessert were excellent.
We had lunch at Belly Bao and loved everything we ordered,. Very tasty and delicious food!
So delicious! Everything was so fresh and yummy! Staff were all also super friendly. Overall great place. Will be back!
Belly bao never disappoints. It’s one of my favourite places to eat. 2 people can eat for $50. It’s consistently good.
The curry cheese fries are to die for.
I tried the cheese baoger and liked it. I can’t go past the crispy pork belly bao, it’s so delicious. The pork is cooked perfect every time.
The staff are all really nice, I love that you can write your own order down. It’s perfect for a quick bite to eat.
High recommend this place.
Great food, fast and full of flavor. Service was great, good atmosphere.
Belly Bao is always delicious. I just felt that only allocating an hour to my 5:30 reservation was a little stingy. We were quite rushed.
I think for christmas when people are booking Christmas dinners it's bit disappointing to be rushed out.
Belly Bao never ever disappoints. The food is always incredible as is the atmosphere and service. One of our favourite restaurants 👍🏻
Some of the best bao I’ve had, very tasty, good menu! Would be good to see more spicy options.
It was so good! For $55 my friend and I ate varied, delicious and plentiful dishes, we were stuffed! Cool vibe too. Would recommend.
Tasty. Create way to make burgers. Going there quite a lot. Just the chicken wings is a little dry and oil😅. I love all other food in the restaurant.
The food was really nice and service was lovely. Would definitely go there again
Food was good but nothing more. The issue was that there was an authenticity lacking. Appreciate it was a modern twist, or different way of executing Bao et al but it still needs to cover all flavour notes which traditional Bao do. For example there was a lack of sweet, salt and acid which is where the main flavour notes normally come through. A spicy mayo, lime and seasoning is simple but would've been welcomed.
Food was great, however they had forgotten the rest of our order 😁
The wait staff were exceptional!
It was a shame because our booking wasn’t on time. There was a stuff up with their booking system so we had to wait to be seated for a while.
The wait staff gave us free desert to apologise which was lovely.
But it was disappointing. The prices were also quiet high for the value and the amount of food.
Excellent service. Food came quickly. Food was delicious! Definitely going back again!
This is the second time I’ve eaten at Belly Bao and it was just fantastic once again! The service is amazing, the food is divine and it is reasonably priced. we ordered so much food and an alcoholic beverage each for $100. We are not vegans but wanted to try the vegan baoger which was amazing!!!! Can’t wait to go again and again! I really can’t fault Belly Bao
Great noodles, attentive staff but the bao buns where dry and not fluffy, all of the buns we had broke apart at the base.
Belly Bao is good for quick eats with a small group. They do try to rush you out, and while they say that larger bookings get more time, this wasn’t the case for us. Also, their ordering system is challenging for big groups. Additionally, ordering drinks was difficult. It would be ideal for two to four people- anymore and maybe head somewhere else.
Music too loud.
Very good food. Service was underwhelming though, I never got the drink I requrested and my friend thought the server had a BO problem.
Never disappoints, one of my favourite spots, great food, great service and vibe.
Best Bao's ever...all dietary requirements covered and the desserts were yummo....will definitely go back again....
Best place to eat in Newtown.. nice service and friendly
Very creative recipes and flavors! The blend of Western and Asian flavors is a unique experience. The baoritto was our personal favorite
Amazing food, drinks and service
Cosy little place
Always full of customer so highly recommend making a booking to avoid disappointment
Consistently excellent on all fronts. Relaxed vibe, amazing food and sharp friendly service. My go to for impressing interstate/overseas visitors.
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!
This place always delivers the goods!!! The orange chicken is a must try. Good vibe, great staff & all round excellent experience every time.
Great service from the staff. Food and cocktails were beautifully presented and tasted really nice.
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.
Great to come later in the night; less noise and no wait for tables!
Amazing food and service - will definitely be visiting again! Would love a bit more air con as it was very warm 😊
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. Will be back ASAP. Vegan menu is wild! Love it
Belly Bao, if you do plan to change, chnage for the better. Otherwise keep and maintain the star levels that you have. Amazing job and amazing food, as always. Love you guys! 👍👍
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.
Absolutely loved the food and service was fantastic. Great range of food catering for vegans too. I will definitely return! Amazing
My favourite restaurant! Recommend to everyone and visit at least once a month!
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.
