Perfectly average overall and very underwhelming. The food was dull, dishes we chose lacked lightness of touch, a little stodgy and ‘brown’. Best dish was the pak choi with garlic ‘bits’ on top. Service was friendly enough yet lacked professionalism and personality. It clearly is a chain of average restaurants.
It wasn’t good value.

An overall experience that wasn't terrible by any means, but the food not really up to the modern standards I would have expected. Was anything horrible? No absolutely not. Could I have got better roasted meats in a variety of locations in Bayswater or China Town for less money? Yes absolutely.

Some of the dishes were better - The dan dan noodles, and the wood ear fungus were both tasty. Service was friendly. the space pleasant, but it's not quite enough to have me racing back.

If you really love Chinese food, then I suspect you would likely be disappointed by this place.

This was our first time at Baozilnn, having dinner for my partner's birthday. We had an absolutely wonderful evening! The food was stunning (especially the duck! cooked to perfection) and we were super impressed with the service.
Great food, great service, great vibe! Thank you for having us! We will be back for sure.

Great variety (although not quite as good as the Soho outpost). The only thing I'd say was that it felt a bit atmosphere-less not helped by the fact that the music was too loud and dreadful (who can enjoy themselves with Coldplay and Sam Smith in the background). Soho one better for decoration, atmos and menu choice but this one is good if you want Chinese food in the area.

Average food - dumplings good, roast duck and pancakes not great, prawns ok. Service ok, very overpriced. Could have eaten at Yuatcha for the same money and a much better experience. Overall average with a premium price tag

The dumpling starters were good. The two main dishes awful! The roast duck (£26) was mostly fat that hadn’t been rendered or crispy. The pork noodles were sweet and tasted terrible. Came with a ‘soup’ which tasted like fishy water. Stick to what you know with the dumplings. And stick to the original branch. The London Bridge outpost isn’t working.

The food is interesting ...but the service! The food was generally good though pricey (£6 for a small bowl of celery with some tahini paste?) The menu was not as it appears on the Top Table site so I was disappointed to find no hot pot skewers which I was looking forward to trying. The service was friendly but desperately inefficient. Waited 20 minutes for someone to come to take a drinks order. Waitresses did not seem to know what was on the own menu and struggled to find things on the iPads that they took orders on. They also managed to lose some orders we made. It's a shame, as with better management this could become a pleasant dining experience which I would recommend.

I was wanting to go to this place for a while after hearing of the new opening, but was surprisingly disappointed. I had high hopes and I felt everything just lacked flavour and seasoning.
We studied the menu and after deciding that we wanted the crispy belly pork when ordering.. we were told not available. Would be nice to tell your guests that when giving the menu...
We started with a chilli cucumber which was not hot at all, until I asked for chilli oil which was nice, but at nearly £7 for a cucumber side dish... that was expensive!
The dumplings were nice, but again bland.. the XO sauce one was better.
The noodles was probably the best thing there... but then again at £12.50 it was expensive.
Noting much to say about the service... but you can see there was an inexperienced waiter working in the room.

Overall, wouldn’t return to this branch but will try one day the other branch that does dim sum in soho.

Food wasn’t good which is a real shame as we were big fans on Baozlin’s dum sum restaurant. We ended up sending a few dishes back as they were so bad. On the upside the staff were really nice and dealt with issues well, the venue is nice.

Some of, if not the best dumplings I've had in London. Would definitely go again

Great food. The staff was flagging a bit in taking orders but the food came quickly after that. A few dishes were not very hot as they should have been but on the whole a great experience

As a big fan of BaoziInn in Soho and Market Halls in Victoria I was really interested to see what might be different about the newest branch in London Bridge. The answer was: quite a lot! It's much bigger than the Soho branch and feels more upscale and luxurious, so it's more of a date/sepcial occasion place than the others. The menu is also longer, presented in a really well-produced book format with great photography makig it really easy to order. There's a whole new section of roasted meats available as sets with pancakes, vegetables and sauces, or with rice or noodles. We had a roast duck set and it was fantastic. We also had jaozi in XO sauce, large soup dumplings (one pork, one beef), cloud ear fungus with pickled chilli (a favourite dish, exhilaratingly spicy), king prawns in delicious, sticky Capital sauce and dan dan noodles, which I always order and which were excellent. We sat in the lounge area upstairs at a low table, perfect for date night, although you could also choose a regular table or to sit up at the bar. Overall we really enjoyed the new BaoziInn and will definitely go back.

Tasty food, great for sharing. Reasonably priced. Some of the staff are really friendly, others seemed to ignore us. Despite having cocktails on the menu for some reason we weren’t able to order any at 9pm on a Friday night.
