Ten-Second Takeaway

A new pan-Asian hot spot in Defence Colony, Oh! Bao is Moet’s new venture and as the name suggests, has a menu focusing on Chinese, Japanese and Thai.


Laksa Soup, Prawn & Chives Dimsum, Pork Belly Bao, Chicken Clay Pot


Red Wine Sangria


For the chic interiors and the little bowl of Wonton Kimchi

Soothing Hues

The interiors of Oh! Bao are all soothing pastel shades, with the occasional bright colour pop. The space speaks comfort, and is divided into two sections – a fine dine section, and a quirkier area where you can just lay back and chill.

Bao and Wow


If you are a seafood lover, the Laksa Soup {seafood soup with coconut base served in a coconut shell} should be the first thing you order. It has the right balance of everything – sweetness from the coconut milk and saltiness from the seafood. From their range of Designer Sushi, we tried the Spicy Salmon Roll {salmon, avocado, jalapenos, spicy mayonnaise topped with, again, salmon, and tempura flakes}, which we’re definitely going back for.

Moving on to their baos – the Cracking Pork Belly Bao {slow braised pork belly in Hoisin sauce with scallion and crushed peanuts} is amazing. The pork was super tender, super juicy and flavourful. The Panko Crusted Chicken Bao {along with lettuce and cucumber and topped with spicy Szechuan mayo} is a good option, but a little on the bland side.


Among their range of dim sums, the Chicken Gyoza dim sum was just about okay, but the star, hands down, was the Prawn & Chive. The spinach covered dim sums were interesting, but failed to impress us too much on the taste front.

If you’re looking for a wholesome filling meal, the Chicken Claypot is a great pick.

P.S. We also loved the Kimchi made out of fried Wonton sheet strips and tossed in spices {an ideal snack with a glass of wine or a cocktail}


From wines to beer, they have it all. You can also ask them to prepare something specifically for you. Might we recommend  the non-alcoholic Orange Bloom {Orange + cranberry juice, lemon and loads of crushed iced}.

We’re bookmarking this one for an evening of fine wine and light Asian fare.
