In February 2018, I wrote a review of this place, called "Seriously disappointed", with **, and although I had clearly been, I got a mail from tripadvisor that they had challenged it. I'm not sure whether deflecting reviews like that, rather than improving food and...service, is the way to go for quality, but Baojaam has its fanbase and so, as a business enterprise, it seems to work. After more than three years, I tried it again - it's still the same, but the steak bao I chose this time was better, although the beef was chewy and the sauce still seemed very generic. But the mayonnaise with it was great and the fries were very good as well, and the bun in itself was fine. Still not related to Taiwanese street food, but if they continue on the current path, maybe by 2024 they will be. :-)More

Nice bao buns, quite tasty and filling not saying that overly cheap though - if you have that notion that street food is cheap - yes we've taken most expensive baos with pork belly but they are only EUR 1 more expensive than other options....So to put you into perspective it was EUR 21 for two sets of baos (each set consist of two buns) and one side of fries, without any drinks. Buns were good, but still you can have lunch for two for similar price, even with drinks if you lucky, and with more choices what to eat, even in super touristy old town. Also waiting time as for street food was a bit on the longer side. Anyway if you like this type of food and not too tight on budget would recommend this stall to check out.More

Waybeyond Baos, this place definitely worth a try. Free range beef is a must, those flavors..the best in Tallinn. Yummy!

Nowadays Baojaam also has restaurant in Old Town, so street food may be wtong thing to say. But originally they had and have this little kiosk/stall in Balti Jaam, near Telliskivi and from day one they have served absolutely delicious Baos. I heard that in...their restaurant they are making even their noodles themselves, but Crispy Chicken Bao is the reason I must go to Balti Jaam everytime I am in Tallinn. Everything is made in front of your eyes, so you see fresh ingredients they use.More

You can't go wrong with BGE! Baobaos filled with charcoal grilled incridients sounds good and they serve it with a smile. Worth queueing.

I love bao buns but sometimes they are hard to come by. As soon as I seen these on offer in the market I knew they would be my first stop. I opted for the steak ones and they were delicious, packed with flavour. You...also see them cooking everything fresh right in front of you. Definitely worth visiting the market just for these.More

We ate all of them and could not decide which was the best. Also the ramen and bisque was of the hook. Definitely worth a visit!
