THE CULINARY LEGACY OF GOUBULI BEGAN IN 1858 BY THE ESTABLISHMENT OF ITS FIRST OUTLET IN TIANJIN, CHINA. THE LEGENDARY GOUBULI BAOZI WAS INVENTED BY GOUZI USING HALF LEAVEN DOUGH, RICHLY FLAVOURED MEAT AND A DELICIOUS SOUPY FILLING. EACH BAOZI IS ELEGANTLY HANDMADE WITH 18-FOLD CHRYSANTHEMUM CROWN AND STEAMED TO PERFECTION. THE FAMOUS BAOZI ATTRACTED PATRONS FROM ALL OVER CHINA AND BUSINESS WAS SOON DOING SO WELL THAT GOUZI BECAME TOO BUSY TO ENGAGE IN SMALL TALK AND PEOPLE STARTED CALLING HIM GOUBULI (WHICH MEANS DOG IGNORES). HENCE THE NAME GOUBULI WAS BORN.
IN 2016, GOUBULI HAS FINALLY LANDED IN CANADA WITH ITS FIRST STORE IN RICHMOND HILL. THE 7TH SUCCESSOR OF GOUBULI, ALSO ONE OF THE HOLDERS OF CHINA’S INTANGIBLE CULTURAL HERITAGE, IS IN STORE TO ENSURE ORIGINALITY AND THE EXQUISITE TASTING EXPERIENCE OF GOUBULI BAOZI MADE ONSITE, FRESH TO ORDER. WE ALSO OFFER TRADITIONAL NORTHERN CUISINE AND RENOWNED TIANJIN SNACKS TO GO ALONG WITH OUR SIGNATURE DISHES.

Very disappointed about the OpenTable reservation as this restaurant told us that they didn’t know about our table for 12 pax yesterday. It ended up that we had to spit into 2 tables and ordered food for 2 diff tables. Not an excuse if you’re putting up your ad and method of reservation on OpenTable and told your customer that your restaurant doesn’t have Wifi to check with the reservation. It’s ridiculous!

Good ambience. Cozy and not noisy like many other Chinese restaurants. Taste is quite authentic northern Chinese. There is room to improve on quality of ingredients. I will go again.

Feel like you were rushed to finish and leave and it wasn’t even one hour for a group of 9. One small group is waiting for table but the table besides us were leaving.
The female manager kept watching our table and cane to ask if we want to pack our foods. My son was still eating!
I guess it is a restaurant for you to eat and go like a fast food restaurant. Definitely not a place for you to entertain.

Reservations on Open Table does not work for Canada location. They do not have access to it despite you receive reservation confirmation from the website.

You will need to call them directly.
