Whilst much quieter thanks to COVID-19, lovely food and service. Slightly overpriced but still great food. Baos and dumplings were great, as were the Dan Dan noodles.
Lovely food, as always.
The service was really good and attentive here.
Unfortunately, the restaurant was very quiet, like the rest of central London this month.
Dim sum was delicious. We thought we should have just stuck to the buns rather than moving onto mains as we enjoyed them the most.
Very good chinese with a bit of a kick. Only complaint would be that £5.90 is a bit steep for a plate of cucumbers with chilli oil, particularly when your mains are, by contrast, so reasonably priced. But it was described on the menu as cucumbers with chilli oil so really it's our mistake for ordering!
Very tasty fried rice and dan dan noodles and the mixed dim sum platter is excellent value.
Arguably one of the best restaurants in London for dumplings!
Excellent food and very attentive service. They were helpful when choosing and attentive.
Nice decor and location as well.
We used to like this place but last visit has been really disappointing! Super poor quality food (cold fried platter, cold noodles), smaller quantity than before and we had to chase them to even order... the final touch has been one of the waitress suggesting us to have the braised pork belly with steamed rice and then bringing what apparently was fried rice - overpriced considering it was a small bowl of rice with a little amount of vegetables - £11.80 instead of £2.50 for a side dish! I think we would never come back, it's not worth it...
Rebranded and with a new menu, Bashan is Baozhi Inn now. Still excellent but considerably more expensive - I would still recommend it any day.
Food used to be authentic and good value for money. Now the food isn't authentic and it's way overpriced! For example, inauthentic fried rice (people complaining about why it had chili powder on it) that was a small bowl for over £11!! Reminded me of Chinese tapas - small portions, huge pricetag. I won't be going back. :(
Apart from not confirming our attendance with Open Table, we didn’t have to wait more than a few minutes to be seated upstairs, We had a window table with a great view of Bar Shu on the corner of Frith St and Romilly St. which had a Chinese red lantern in every window! Our waitress was attentive, although our last dish did not arrive. We understood, as it was Chinese New Year, the kitchen was very, very busy, and we had already enjoyed Dim Sum and Salt & Pepper Squid. All in all, a great experience.
Excellent as always and our friends loved it as well.
Great location, service and food. But it’s very expensive for what it is.
I have come a couple of times and decided to booked it for my birthday dinner, they were all wonderful, even though I hadn't told them it was my birthday (as I don't like the fuss) they realised it was a birthday and brought us out some buns with a candle in! Incredibly thoughtful! I don't live int London but always make a stop to Baozi Inn for dim sum when I am over and I have never been let down. Great quality food and service!
Extremely delicious dim sum and amazing Chinese dishes! There were lots of vegetarian and vegan options - the fried oyster mushrooms and mapo tofu were a particular highlight. Really quick service too - ideal for a pre-theatre dinner. I'll definitely be back again.
Slow but pleasant service. Flavours a little bland. Seating uncomfortable.
The food was really good but the menus could have more detail to help understand what you are ordering. Sadly the staff were not really helpful. They even got one order completely wrong bringing 2 non veg meals when one should have been veg.
Excellent service and food. Very good value for central London
Great food and service
Food was not very good plenty of garlic to cover any flavour. Very expensive and the wine was really poor quality too. Overrated place.
I have no idea about Chinese food generally even though I have travelled through China. But I enjoyed the experience of meeting a friend in Baozilnn, the staff were extremeply pleasant and helpful and the food was good, the price "normal" for central london, the menu was clear and advice on what to order hellpful.
Despite an amazing menu and great food quality this place deserves a poor rating due to the horrible service...
Interesting range of dim sum. Reasonably prized. Helpful staff. Benches rather narrow and menus need a wipe/clean/replace.
The restaurant was not what I had expected. I had booked online. However, this was a good thing. The restaurant was lovely. The service was excellent and the food was really lovely. We were surprised the rice appeared first but then shortly after all the other plates of food appeared. It was a bit like Chinese tapas.
Overall the food was delicious and we would definitely return.
We focused on the dim sum options and were very pleased with our choices. The food was vibrant and presented nicely. It’s a small place but one would think it large for the quality of food. When in London, we will seek it out again.
The food is just stunning. A lovely spot.
Great restaurant, went for a quick lunch and such delicious food and many options. Highly recommend.
Really lovely food and atmosphere. The restaurant is very small but has a nice feel to it. We felt comfortable and enjoyed our lunch. Would have preferred more of a choice of tea and perhaps not just a teabag in a mug. Apart from that the dumplings were delicious.
Overall, the food is fresh and tasty and good value for money. The place is quite small and perhaps a little disorganised. The only reason for not giving 5 stars was the slightly slow and chaotic service. In the end, we were offered a large table in a private alcove...a luxury for 3 for Sunday lunch. £75 for the three of us including tip for dim sum. I would go again, but not if I was in a hurry.
