Seems like the Chinese food is ok but the dining area leaves a lot to be desired. Lot of local people do like this place so my opinion might be a bit unreasonable as I like a nicer looking place in addition to quality food.

Pau Pau is by far the best Chinese restaurant in the area. Food is always fresh and the flavors are authentic and unique to their restaurant. I love the service by a traditional Chinese family. We have been customers for years, always enjoyed quality food...More

Paupau has a decent menu, the food is standard Chinese fare, sauces seem to have a lot of sugar. It is the only Chinese restaurant in the area and works well for that occasional urge.

The food is always amazing and they make it to order so you know it is fresh. The staff is attentive and friendly. Love Pau Pau's!! They are cash or check only but don't let that stop you.

We eat at Paupau's at least a couple times a month. So good, veggies are always crisp and the meal is filling. Always a ready smile and fast service. Not a fancy place, just filling, good food served with a smile.

Great food. Don't let the outside looks fool you. Also this is a cash only place and no ATM inside. You won't leave hungry.

Didn't La Choy have an ad in the 60's that said something like La Choy makes Chinese food swing American? The Good: -The restaurant is very clean, however it has no ambiance and the wait staff was very standoffish. -The ingredients are fresh. No question...More

I quit going to Paupau's six months ago. I have tried there food at least twice in the past five years. Each time I said I would not go back. I gave it one last chance. The food is all the same, just different sauces....More

We moved out of Hayden back in 2010 and have not been to Paupau's Kitchen since then. We just came back this summer and ate there the other day and nothing has changed. The food is excellent, made with quality ingredients. We love the owner...More
