Bao is actually husband of one of my university's MBA graduates; thus I admit, proudly, some bias, up front. But only in the sense that this was a fact leading to the discovery. Now, the food and service: Excellent, personally prepared from a select menu of Beijing edibles. We have visited three times, and each time we witnessed Bao's personal... More

This place is rather small and gets busy almost every evening. Me and my have been there a few times. The food was always good and the table was always greasy and sticky for some reasons. It's a place for a quick Chinese meal but not good if you want to spend some time with friends or family as it... More

It's a place you easily pass by walking around the Pannekoekstraat. But definitely worth it to stop by and try some of the Beijing dishes on the sticky(literally) tables. I was amazed by the pork leg (huge!), also the vegetarian and lamb dishes are well prepared and tasty!

We took the sweet and sour pork and coriander pork. Excellent combination to share with two, really filling and had the left-overs for lunch the next day. We also had the beef dumplings, those were standard good. The sweet and sour is not like the typical touristy version of it, we couldnt seem to agree on what the difference precisely... More

Visited this place for 2 reasons: good reviews on one the local foodie review websites, plus the place was pretty much packed (we had the last table). The interior is spartanesque. Which is no problem, in the Far East the best food can be had in places that will never win prizes for interior decoration. In Beijing Bao the menu... More

Here we found real Beijing food. Finally not Cantonese / indunisian food as in most of Chinese restaurants in Rotterdam. Dishes are served pretty fast and the price is quite reasonable for us. Personal favority from today's dinner: seafood dumplings, spinach egg Beijing pizza, toufu Chinese cabbage soup, long stew pork with sweet potato noodles and the green bean drink... More

Always fresh and delicious food. Not like your typical Chinese food restaurant in The Netherlands, in a good way. Simple but cosy place. Don't expect the tip top service but I guess that is also part of the charm.

The food in this Chinese restaurant is above my expectations. However, matching this with the pricing, it is quite expensive. In the area, I could easily mention a few Asian restaurants that do better. We ordered dumplings, which were nice but for sharing the portions were really small (price equalled 11 euros). Furthermore, the service was average and the toilet... More

This small restaurant serves north Chinese dishes. The excellent cook is working hard. The open kitchen, together with the clean, bright diningpart with the slick furniture creates a nice atmosphere. They have an extensive menu. We had delicious porkbelly bacon and a tasty lamb dish. You can find a good amount of delicious and spicy dishes. They serve only white... More
