This place is amazing! Highly recommended the chicken and the pork bao! Both equally delicious! Service is super friendly and you can choose which things (pickles, peanuts etc) you want on your bao.

This is the best lunch in Exeter. Great service, friendly feel, fabulous food, reasonable prices. It suits meat eaters, veggies and vegans. The tofu bao bun is delicious, the curries yum and filling and salads seriously tasty.

We had bao buns (chicken satay & tofu) with a salad. Both buns were delicious, and the salad was really nice and very fresh. Very reasonable prices too; we’ll definitely be coming back.
