The Baobao restaurant provides an interesting interior that fuses traditional Hungarian designs with Chinese elements. The result is a minimalist and modern restaurant interior. The central focal point of the space however is a collection of basket-weaved lanterns.

The dim-sum-themed restaurant has walls adorned with large illustrations of various dim-sum offerings, providing both a simple menu and captivating wall art. The woven basket pattern seen in traditional dim-sum containers is repeated throughout the space's tabletops, wall decor and in each hanging lantern. The hanging woven panels and lanterns were made by artist Éva Székely, whose specialty is basket-making art. The dark red graphic floor also blends oriental patterns with traditional Hungarian designs to execute a truly unique look.
