  • Gaston M.We got told.to wait for 15 mins and when we finally got in we were told that they were out of around 50% of the menu, which would've been good to know before the wait. Nothing special

  • Marc S.Fantastic service, amazing food. Good choices for vegetarians.

  • Atef SSmall plates are a bit on the overpriced side and not too tasty. Fried chicken wings were surprisingly good however.

    55555 by Atef S

  • Rachel Vwhen in doubt just order everything on the menu...

    55555 by Rachel V

  • Curtis S.It's good but not quite amazing? The upscale Chinese food tasted good. Clean flavors and high quality but the more experimental "fusion" stuff falls flat.

    55555 by Curtis S.

  • Natalie V.Everything was good, but especially loved the omelet, pork belly, fried chicken and mantou. Also their homemade chili oil is clutch! Get here early though, we had a 40 min wait at 6pm on Friday.

    55555 by Natalie V.

  • Dexter RWorth the hype. Great service. Amazing crispy chicken schnack.

    55555 by Dexter R

  • Jon B.Both the kickass fried rice and Shao Bing were excellent. That being said, the pea tips were the real shocker. Whatever they were stir fried in; YES! I ordered a plate as a side, yet ate them solo!

  • Nely ReyesAsk for the Jasmine tea pot, really nice tea :)

    55555 by Nely Reyes

    55555 by Nely Reyes

  • Lynne QuWonton and shao bing 烧饼 are amazing! The "green acres" tastes great! Fairly long wait though.

    55555 by Lynne Qu

  • Kevin S.Everything we tried was pretty awesome. Can't miss this spot.

    55555 by Kevin S.

  • Little ImpertinentSharing style dishes. The fried rice was surprisingly spicy (the way we like it)! ❤️

    55555 by Little Impertinent

  • Martin PAsk for recommendations from staff. You might find a new favorite you would not have otherwise tried on your own. The Shao Bing (Lamb Sirloin) and Shan Tofu (chickpea tofu) are two must trys.

    55555 by Martin P

  • Bryan C.Fairly racist, tho. With items like "flied lice" and "oolong you long time"... then when I said something, they said "oh, flied lice was a typo". 😒

  • Alexa (@ladylexy) A.I haven't been here, but it's frequently recommended for dim sum.

    55555 by Talya Saada

  • Ben L.The shao bing is shao BAM! Bartenders are super friendly. Bradley is nice, helpful, and super cool. And devastatingly handsome.

    55555 by Ben L.

  • Duane B.Amazing food. I'd eat here again in a second.

    55555 by Duane B.

  • Eric T.Bao Bei is one of Chinatown's late additions to a community losing its heritage character to new gentrification. Add your name and patience to a wait list for tasty fare. Bao Bei is worthy of a book.

    55555 by Eric T.

  • Miroslav KaděraReally enjoyed it. Crispy Pork Belly was superb, other meals perfect as well :)

    55555 by Miroslav Kaděra

  • NancyI like the sturgeon dish. Great cocktails too.

    55555 by Nancy

  • Fatima B.Great ambiance. Chickpea tofu was melt in your mouth delish. Veggie potstickers and fried rice. Subbed tofu for the duck in the fried rice dish as I'm vegetarian.

    55555 by Fatima B.

  • Angela ChangEverything is either spicy or too salty. Portions are small for sharing, the recommended is 2 dishes/person. The dumplings are pretty tasty though!

    55555 by Angela Chang

  • EaterThe decor may be modern but the technique is traditional at this popular Chinatown brasserie. Excellent cocktails, generous sharing plates and "Kick Ass House-Fried Rice". [Eater 38 Member]

    55555 by Rachel K

    55555 by Veronicahhh

    55555 by Nathan M.

    55555 by Milun T.

  • Dominique RobitailleIl faut absolument essayer le mantou, et les " prawn dumplings"... accompagnés d'un verre ou deux de Gerwurstraminer de l'Okanagan... Simplement jouissif!

    55555 by Dominique Robitaille

    55555 by Sotheby's International Realty Canada

    55555 by Doug D Styles

  • The ProvinceHere's a restaurant worthy of trekking into Chinatown. This serious cocktail territory offers creative "schnacks". Also try the slow-braised pork belly and a Shao Bing variation with pork butt.

    55555 by The Province

  • Kim ALove the interior design and the classic cocktails.

    55555 by Kim A

  • Eric T.Echoes of Chinatown's past infuse an intimate space with lively diners mingling over dumplings, noodles and cocktails. Owner Tannis Ling delights with an atmospheric homage to her mother's heritage.

    55555 by Andrea Semenik

    55555 by Wellington W.

  • Metro NewsFinally, Chinese food in Chinatown that can challenges Richmond's offerings, in an upscale setting worthy of a coctail hour. Try the mantou with shortrib, fish noodle bowl and shao bing pork sammies.

    55555 by Metro News

    55555 by Clement M
