Sydney's first dedicated home of Bao, we specialise in hand made Bao creativity. It's important to us that you enjoy our love for food paired with great drinks and friendly service in our fun, casual restaurant that offers a hint of old Chinese restaurant nostalgia.
Taking from the traditional chinese pork bun (pork bao), we pride ourselves on our hand made bao, and introducing our asian heritage to our Australian home.
We hope you enjoy our love for Bao as much as we do.

The baos were great! Everything else was average. I’d recommend exploring the baos 😊
Great friendly service, great food, good cocktails and good value for money considering the food quality.
The food at Belly Bao is incredible and there are lots of vegan options. The overall atmosphere of the restaurant was very relaxing and ambient.
Some of the party arrived late which was our fault however only 1.5 hours to eat drink and leave. We ordered a bottle of wine towards the end and forgot that we only had 1.5 hours. Would have been good if the waiter/waitress reminded us that we only have 1.5hours. Would be good to extend to 2 hours if possible.
Great food, the espresso martini is a must-try. Worth it.
Every dish we had was delicious. Also so great with the amount of vego options!
Awesome everything! Food and drink came out in a timely manner. Social disntancing rules limit the interaction between staff and guests to keep everyone safe but didnt affect service or ambience.
Very awesome staff. Not just waitress, also the host and bartender. You guys have a great team. Food was also excellent. Drinks superb. Overall, will definitely be coming back and have no complaints!
With the post Covid 19, only 1 hr allowed per booking which is a bit too quick. I think need to be at least 1.5 hrs...
The food is amazing, as always Sylvia provided phenomenal service, she and her staff were attentive and helpful. Great food, great atmosphere.
Great food, nice small restaurant. Food tasty and quick service.

Belly bao is our go to restaurant, we travel from the Blue Mountains just to have it! Absolutely delicious food, especially the pork belly crackling bao and the chopped cheese baoger!
So good to be able to eat back at our fave place.
Belly's is one of my favourite places to eat in Newtown!
The orange chicken and spicy noodles are incredible. The bao was fresh and soft, and the staff were professional and helpful as always.
Amazing food! Have been a fan of belly bao for awhile now ordering their delivery. But finally made it into the restaurant for full menu and no regrets! The cheesecake spring rolls are to die for!
The food, service and value was amazing. I can’t wait to come back
Delicious, produces food quick and at a consistently high standard. Love the ordering system where you order never gets messed up!
Absolutely in love with this place! The food expects aalll expectations and the vibe at the restaurant with its lovely attentive staff and great beats is all you could wish for! 100% my favourite place in all of Sydney! Each new item on the menu I've tried blows my mind ever more, its unbelievable. Love it!
It's the second time we've been. The food is great and the prices are pretty reasonable as well. We'll be back again.
Great food, friendly service, booking was done without a hitch
The ambiance and the decoration of the place has an 80’s vibe, you can pick between table or bar sitting.
I’ve been to Belly Bao many times and I’ve tried most of the items from the menu. Do yourself a favour and order the cheese and curry fries as an entree, the baos are to die for and also the baogers are my my all time favourite (try the chopped cheese). The BBC (fried chicken lol) is one of the best I’ve ever had.
The staff is always friendly and the food doesn’t take too long to arrive at the table after you order.
They do have specials every now and then, you definitely have to try the desserts while you’re there, they’re unique!
Food and service was exceptional, the variety on the menu was excellent.
Best very good food was awesome came straight out ms
Great service, quick food delivery & a nice atmosphere
The foods are fabulous and staffs are nice and friendly.
I'm not vegan however I would highly reccommend their vegan bao burger. It's absolutely amazing! Was a bit disappointed on the gaytime bao dessert, due to the size and that it was literally a gaytime icecream in a deep fried bao, however still delish!
loved everything , food was fresh and on time. Would 100% reccomend
The food was exquisite and very reasonably priced! Thank you for an amazing dining experience!
The food is consistently fresh and flavoursome. Staff and service are always lovely. Great value. It's wonderful to have such a variety of delicious vegan options.
Although the fillings were great, the bao themselves were really thin. Overly priced. Some staff were very friendly, but the maitre d was very rude. Drinks and dessert were excellent.
We had lunch at Belly Bao and loved everything we ordered,. Very tasty and delicious food!
So delicious! Everything was so fresh and yummy! Staff were all also super friendly. Overall great place. Will be back!
Belly bao never disappoints. It’s one of my favourite places to eat. 2 people can eat for $50. It’s consistently good.
The curry cheese fries are to die for.
I tried the cheese baoger and liked it. I can’t go past the crispy pork belly bao, it’s so delicious. The pork is cooked perfect every time.
The staff are all really nice, I love that you can write your own order down. It’s perfect for a quick bite to eat.
High recommend this place.
Great food, fast and full of flavor. Service was great, good atmosphere.
Belly Bao is always delicious. I just felt that only allocating an hour to my 5:30 reservation was a little stingy. We were quite rushed.
I think for christmas when people are booking Christmas dinners it's bit disappointing to be rushed out.
Belly Bao never ever disappoints. The food is always incredible as is the atmosphere and service. One of our favourite restaurants 👍🏻
