It’s all about the buns at this basement Chinese street-food restaurant, a little sister to the Newport Court BaoziInn round the corner. The bao as they should be: soft and fluffy on the outside; deliciously warm, sweet and sticky on the inside. Take a date for pre-theatre beers and bao, and you’ll do very well here.
From Sichuanese to dim sum and beyond, there’s so much choice that it’s hard to know which one to plump for. But Time Out’s food reviewers have eaten at all of them – many times, over many years – to produce this definitive list on the best places to eat in Chinatown, including traditional dim sum parlours, stalwart Chinese joints, eateries doing modern takes on classic Oriental cuisine and a few fine non-Chinese options (including – gasp! – Spanish tapas).
