Restaurant description

A quaint little cafe seating just 15, Dumplings & Baos is a stone's throw from Clapham Common, and offers an inventive pairing of irresistible French pastries and beautifully presented modern dim sum, with outside seating for when the sun's shining.

The selection of dim sum delicacies on the Dumplings & Baos menu use both seasonal UK produce, and ingredients from Asian suppliers. There are gluten-free steamed dumplings with aromatic fillings like salmon, Thai basil, homemade tofu and Thai green curry paste, and Chinese steam bao made with savoury dough, filled with free-range chicken and shiitake mushrooms. Indulgent light bites include fried salt and pepper squid, and there are wholesome soups, as well as rice and noodle creations.

French patisserie treats at Dumplings & Baos Clapham are artfully crafted, and include choux buns filled with cream and additions like red fruit and hibiscus, while the French tarts come topped with colourful fruits and salted caramel. The drinks menu includes a variety of healthy, fresh juices, as well as exotic teas.

Also offering pastry-making classes, and offering a BYO alcohol option, Dumplings & Baos London is a charming and inventive blend of European and Asian dining. Clapham Common Tube Station is only 2 minutes' walk away.

    The food was great, especially the bao buns and because it’s BYOB the whole meal was very reasonable. Will be going back!
