Ever wished dumplings had exteriors to match their mysteriously exciting fillings? Then head to Baoyuan for a healthful rainbow of dumplings, their dough dyed with vegetable and fruit such as spinach, carrot, blueberry and grape. The dumplings are wrapped in a yuanbao (silver ingot) shape, and are larger and fuller than crescent-shaped dumplings. An order of six dumplings is generally under RMB 10 – and scrumptious. Particularly creative vegetarian options pack in smoked beancurd, celery, mushrooms, eggs, chives, cabbage, carrots and cellophane noodles. Tables are often full but turnover is high, so you won't have to wait too long. Traditionally dressed waitstaff are a bit overly attentive, but accommodating.
User reviews of Baoyuan Jiaozi Wu 宝源饺子屋
We come here almost every month with our kids and we all love the dumplings. But there is other food which is very tasty aswell, e.g. Gong bao ji ding and the vegetables are very good. I hate to pay the overpriced restaurants for not really delicious food here it is the other way round, great food and really cheap prices.
I've spent a lot of time eating jiaozi. First when I was in Shanghai and now here in Beijing. For sure, the dumplings from these places aren't the same but I've come to love those from the north more. And, IMHO, there are no better dumplings in this city than than those at Baoyuan. Yes, the dumplings at Xiao lao man are also very good. But they don't have the variety, customer service and thin dumpling skins that Baoyuan does. Baoyuan also feels more family run - something I definitely appreciate. Truth is, both places are great but to me this one is better.
It s a typical chinese restaurant with AWESOME jiaozi, there s plenty choice of taste for the jiaozi, the best for me is the mushroom and beef, yummy! Alsoo just for the fun, u can choose the color of the jiaozi...
you can book a table in a private room, it s better if you go with a group of friend.
Price are very correct for the quality and more, each dishes has the cooker's number for any complaining or felicitation.
I recommend this to everybody.
Over the years I have become friends with the waitresses here. Astonishingly, most have worked for this tiny jiaozi restaurant for over 5 years – an unheard of amount of town given how hard it is to attract and maintain staff. All along the way I have enjoyed their service, many times their humor and most of all the fantastic food. Although this restaurant bills itself as a jiaozi restaurant there are other foods one can order. And many are very much above average. But when in doubt stick with the namesake. There isn’t any better jiaozi in the city. Period.
I went to Baoyuan Jiaozi Wu a couple years ago based on positive reviews, and it was fantastic. Novel fillings (including vermicelli, eggplant, etc.), colorful wrappers, affordable pricing, and cheerful service. I particularly enjoyed the lamb and carrot dumplings. It was delicious.
However, the second time I went, it was during rush lunch hour, and a couple of the batches were overcooked--the wrappers were soggy. Still tasty, just not over-the-top awesome.
I went a couple months ago, and I swear to god there was MSG or something funky in the filling. I have a very specific reaction to MSG, and left a bit flummoxed...Hmmm.
Bottom Line: It's worth it if you're in the area, but it's not a destination spot IMHO. The shuijiaozi (dumplings) at Shun Yi Fu in the APM mall were better than those I had in my last experience, and Tian Jin Bai Jiao Dian in Xidan is a highly-rated option by local Beijingers if you're in that part of town.
Everything on Baoyuan's menu is good not just there Jiaozi but that is what i usually go for. Been many many times and will be many more. Their staff are friendly and quality never drops no matter how busy they are. if you haven't been yet you are missing out....
I like this because its filling and healthy .
The price is right for me and I love the colours.
There is a lot of variety is another reason to be here.
Have not been disappointed. Visited atleast 3 or 4 times.
