Yelper Liwen X., who reviewed Suzy Siu's Baos on April 8, wrote, "We ordered the pork belly and barbecue beef baos, as well as the kimchi fries. The bao buns were fluffy and aromatic, complementing the tangy and savory sauces of the pork and beef well."

Yelper Hannah P. noted, "These baos are so good! When I ate at Suzy Siu's, it was the first time I tried baos, and I was a little skeptical at first…I tried the pork belly bao, ramen and Korean street corn. The bao and corn were to die for."
