Get there early and bring cash -- Bao Bei does not take reservations or credit cards -- and you will not be disappointed. Creative cocktails, delicious dumplings, marvelous mantou all add up to a delightful and delicious dining experience.

A very innovative take on Chinese cuisine. Taking from various regions and making it their own, the results are pleasantly surprising: subtle and flavorfull. It was also one of the few restaurants offering non-BC wines by the glass that paired well.

A small bistro Chinese restaurant. Here are some of the firsts for me: 1. No Asian service staff; 2. No Asian ownership; 3. A menu with less only 24 items on the menu (not counting sides and drinks).
And now the good stuff. My wife and I had 5 items; Steamed Prawn & Chive Dumplings, Grilled Asparagus in a wonderful sauce with shaved fried shallots, Market Fish (Halibut) cooked to perfection in a light mint sauce, spicy fried chicken wings with a taste of cumin with sliced jalapeno, White rice. Just enough for the two of us with each dish as good as each other. In the heart of Vancouver ChinaTown, this was different but surprisingly good.

Atmosphere is nice and inviting. Service is good. Menu is very limited. Taste is not bad. Quite over-priced for what is served. If you need authentic Chinese food, goes somewhere else.

Ate family style for party of eight. Server was very knowledgeable and took care of gluten free issues. Pork belly with vegetables, and the steamed halibut with green sauce were the highlights. Leftover sauces from both dishes were poured over white rice to finish things off. Highly recommend the restaurant.
