Tucked away in Portland's West end is this little gem of an eatery serving delicious and interesting versions of dumplings. The dumplings are authentic, cooked to perfection, and full of flavor. They have a great little selection of draught and bottled beer, wine, and cocktails to accompany their little packages of joy. Parking can be challenging in this neighborhood, so be prepared to circle a bit during peak times.

We are delighted to have found this small restaurant in the west end. Having moved to Portland from Shanghai, we miss our dumplings. Not any more as this restaurant has it all going on with the menu the quality of the food and the friendliness of the staff. We sat at the bar as the tables were all taken at 3pm on a Friday afternoon. Excellent job well done. We will be back and will for sure recommend to others with a dumpling craving.

Nice looking place. The dumplings were outstanding. The staff were very nice. Margaritas were good. I highly recommend seeking this place out while in Portland.

Have been here many times including with friends who lived in Taiwan for 5 years. Friends said that it is the best dumpling place they have visited in the US.

My heart has been in Portland, Maine for 30+ years, although I am from away. Spending the summer in Portland, been walking by this place for a couple of months without stopping in. Couldn't decide on a lunch choice as it was getting late, but made Bao Bao our destination.

Happened in at the beginning of Happy Hour, which included half price dumplings, so there was an unexpected bonus. The servings were large - all 6 stuffed dumplings. We had the steamed mushroom/spinach, the hake, and the fried kung pao chicken. All were Excellent What a blast!!

Good beer selection. Small but well balanced with the dumplings. The physical layout is done in really good taste. Service was excellent!

Lots of good eating options in Portland. Here's another one
