Trust the reviews. Food is tasty & affordable even though mine (chicken kage) was quite cold. Our group of 9 all loved their meals though, myself included. Delivery wasn’t available.

Enjoyed the food from the food truck. Hot and tasty and reasonably priced. Highly recommended. It would have been perfect if we were able to dine alfresco but the weather was too cold and windy to do so.

Good street food for the adults and kids. The kid who doesn't like spice was dipping her dumplings in the "spicy" (maybe just a little chili oil with some soy sauce) and kept going. Places to sit outside and seemed to busy at tea time,...although was closing up by 7PM as it got dark. Mind you, they'd been open since early in the morning.More

Great food - more than just the bao (tho' they're v v good). Enjoyed the sushi dinner boxes a couple of nights and then the dumplings ... plenty of variety in flavours across the choices - very friendly staff!

After reading the reviews we decided to try here and Im pleased we did. Great tasting bao bun just packed with flavour. Can be messy to eat so sending them out with a serviette would be a good idea.

We didn't know about Bao Now before we got to Te Anau but have since found out it's very well known and can see why! Wish we had this in Nelson!! Awesome food - we tried sushi, bao and the dumplings - even had a...few meals there during our short stay.More

Fussy eaters looking for food! This was an absolute gem of a find. Fresh, yummy flavors and gluten and dairy free options. Were accommodating for our 4 year old and not annoyed by my endless questions lol. So good thank you!

Came with high hopes after recommendations. And while delicious I couldn't find any coriander or okonomiyaki in my pork Bao. I didn't question however as still delicious. Yummy chips too. Fusspot teenaged boy wanted to go back again!

Absolutely delicious. Friendly service, very fast service and the food was really high quality and so so so tasty. Good coffee too, and paywave friendly.
