Very busy restaurant. Reservations recommended. Well above the typical Asian food restaurant in terms of food quality.The fried dumplings and the “Oriental” fried rice are especially good.

Although I've reviewed this wonderful little place before, reviewing again because our last visit was so good, I felt compelled to comment.
The waiter we insist on eating with is "George" he's used to ordering for us, always offering up his favorites from the kitchen that night.
Last visit we dined with h friends who have eaten there prior and they had no idea the dishes we were served were even offered! Yep, all dye to George! If you are open minded and trust him to make all the choices, you'll enjoy a great inning experience! Give it a try, but most importantly, give this great place (byob) a try, bet you'll love it!

We had reservations that were made last August and acknowledged as the first they received. When we arrived at 7:15 for our 7:30 New Year's Eve dinner we were told to wait until the party sitting at the table assigned for us left and that the round table would be converted to seat 9 by placing a topper on the table. After waiting 20 minutes we were then told an additional table needed to be added. Not good! This would have made dinner very uncomfortable and disjointed. This once a year opportunity to join friends at what should have been a festive celebration was ruined. We left and were lucky to find another restaurant. Off our list regardless of the fact we like their food. No way to treat good customers.

We were joining a birthday party in this restaurant. The experience was unique. Some of the dishes were not in the regular menu. The owner/chef was able to come up many special dishes that were not easily find in Chinese restaurant in this area. Service was excellent. I loved the desert of black sesame soup. It was freshly made that day by the owner for our table. The amount of food was generous besides the good taste.

Please note that I have only ordered take-out from this restaurant with no complaints ever!

For the past 2 years, I order from Oriental Pan Asian Restaurant roughly 1 or 2 times per month. Special requests such as no salt, less oil, white instead of brown sauce are done with no problem.
Good value, good quality, tasty food....is there a need to say anything more?
