Daddy Bao offers a fantastic Taiwanese-inspired menu of steamed milk buns, soft as pillows, wrapped around everything from pork belly to ice cream. The food is complemented by cocktails, beers and specialist aged teas brought in from Taiwan. The menu is succinct, with an extra board of specials on display each week. The dishes come as small tapas-style plates so it is suggested that you order two to three buns per person and then a couple of sides as well. There really are some great flavours to be discovered.

The food is exceptional! Fantastic flavours, quality ingredients and you can feel the love that Daddy Bao put into their food. The customer service is second to none. The Management and every single staff member has a beautiful energy about them and they are just lovely people and the atmosphere of the restaurant is lively but never too loud. The music choice is Brilliant and the restaurant interior is delightful. I've been in London for 35 years and I've never had Taiwanese food until I came to Daddy Bao and had my first experience and I was hooked!!! Believe me I won't go anywhere else in London except for Daddy Bao!

The food at Daddy Bao is excellent value and very tasty. Our aubergine dish seemed a little undercooked but the brisket, pork and prawn bao buns were delicious. The ambience of the venue was nice but the tables are a little too close together so coupled with a high turnover of tables we often had our neighbours bottoms brushing past our faces and into our eating area. What really let the venue down was the service. We only received half our drink order and had to flag down the waitress to get the second. We were served much much later than other diners who arrived at the same time with no explanation as to why our food/drink had taken longer. And certain food dishes didn't turn up and again we had to chase them down. There seemed to be only one or two wait staff for the whole place who were clearly working hard but with a regular busy crowd perhaps the business needs to think about getting extra staff in so that diners have a more pleasurable experience and actually get what they order.
