After the meal, we were too full for dessert. It was a nice treat and most of the dishes were tasty for Asian fusion but not outstanding. I will however come back for the Shao Bing and the fried rice (didn't get a picture of this).
Bao Bei was already full and bustling when we were seated at 6. When we left, the queue was out the door. They don't allow reservations unless it's for a party of 10. Best to eat early to avoid the queue or have a drink at the bar while waiting. I hear their cocktails are pretty good.
There is also the Chinatown Night Market in summer which has started up so if you get fed up of waiting for a table - try out the chinese street food outside to satisfy your hunger in the meanwhile.
