Excellent Asian Street Food! The bao was divine! Asian greens and tofu salad - perfect! Great service, great staff! So worth the drive! Lucky Coolum!

Bao Down has brought a new, modern, funky and authentic atmosphere to the Mount Coolum community with an alluring menu of the best Asian meals on the coast. Having been to many Asian restaurants along the Sunshine Coast, Bao Down definitely stands alongside some of the most prestigious and expensive restaurants including The Spirit House.The prices are amazingly cheap with a large amount of food served in each meal. The atmosphere is great, and staff are extremely friendly and happy to help with any queries of the best dishes. This restaurant is one where the whole family can find something to please their taste buds.

Went here with a friend and ordered reasonably well, as we always do when we go out, not afraid to spend money on food, but the bill to fill us was $90 opposed to our average $65 when dining on the coast for this kind of food. On top of which, it didn't meet the standards of other asian restaurants around the coast, even Junk. was better and it has been the bottom of my list for a while. Also for its namesake, the bao are overpriced and not worth it. I've had better at 'cock and hen' down the road and for a better price($7 each opposed to $10 for 3) and it's not even their main point of business.
If you are looking for good asian food don't go here. On top of all this, it's the only restaurant I've been to that makes their so-called guests cop their card transaction charges, 1.9%, not much but a gesture that leaves an impression, they don't care about you, only about your money.
If you care about food quality and service check out any other asian restaurants on the coast, e.i, Rice boi, Umami, Ikko Japenese kitchen, food markets,.. hell, even your local chinese takeaway will leave you with a more satisfying experience..
good eatings fellow foodies, you have been warned.

2 stars because I didn't get sick, I guess that's a plus.
