I stopped by this restaurant while touring the Westfield Mall. They didn't appear busy at first, but it took about 5 minutes to take my order once she called to confirm an online order. Once I placed the order, I waited an additional 15 to 20 minutes for my meal. The teriyaki chicken with veggies and white rice was pretty... More

The atmosphere isn't the best - in the food court at the Westfied Mall, but the food was FANTASTIC!! The 8 vegetable salad was the best salad I have ever had!! Fresh and delicious! There was a good selection of food and everyone in my party was super happy with their sections. They give you a pager, so you don't... More

Located in the food court area of the Westfield Mall, it offers lots of rice and salad bowl combinations - I had the Asian Cobb Salad which was good

Whoa, awesome food selections in a welcoming little restaurant. Roasted Sesame Edamame and Potstickers to start. Then select a sweet bun enveloped around an Asian delicacy like "Peking Duck". Yum! You think these re small dinner options but you soon realize how you feel full. Nice decor, good mixed crowd of diners and foods that cause taste buds to drool.

I'm a big fan of Take A Bao. I had the cobb salad this time, which was scrumptious, but in the past I've tried a range of their baos and liked pretty much all of them! The staff is typically good at giving recommendations, too.

Grabbed some food really quickly before running to the movie theater. The food quality was pretty good and there are (too) many options to choose from. I'd say good food, okay value.

This place rocks. Great Asian fusion, so don't expect authentic. Try the Thai Peanut and Panko Fish.

There are so many amazing things about Take a Bao. Since discovering it a year ago, we now go nearly once a week--yeah, it's that good! The atmosphere is funky, cool, with a great patio. It's trendy without the scene or the ridiculous prices of other restaurants. So yes, it is a very reasonably priced restaurant. From cocktails to entrees... More

If you like hot Asian buns and casual dining go to Take a Bao on Ventura Blvd. With valet parking and street parking available it has a modern, utilitarian feel with minimalist décor and is clean and light. We went as a group of four people and decided to order and share several items. Looking around the pan Asian food... More
