Pan-Asian
Located in the former Michigan Oriental Theater serving exciting shareables in an iconic, historically-rich and high energy atmosphere. PAO is located in the former Michigan Oriental Theater, a space so rich in cultural history, we decided to preserve Detroit’s memories as part of our dining experience. Since 1950, the space sat unoccupied. Today, we reintroduce PAO the restaurant in the heart of Grand Circus Park. The flavors of PAO draw upon Pan-Asian influences, a collaboration of efforts by Chef Alex Farhat and the PAO culinary team. Our drink menu offers approachable, yet rare Asian spirits to be enjoyed as classic favorites. Stop in to sip your favorite handcrafted cocktails or share a meal with friends.

    It was so noisy we couldn't even talk to each other(only 2). For a restaurant who want to look Fancy, it's a mix of sports bar ( why TVs...), loud music like a night club and trying mimic a TAO ambiance, make your choice. Even the food was partially good, dessert cake was over bake.The staff was really nice and competent.

    Noticeable lack of focus on the part of the servers, and indeed in the menu itself. What does this restaurant want to be? It is not really all that Asian fusion given the limited items in the menu, but it doesn’t really make it as a chophouse or steakhouse either. Why on earth would you serve aioli underneath a filet and potatoes entree? To tackle their service problem: we had an inattentive server who confused our order with two entree dishes that were served incorrectly; a server who poured still water into our sparkling water glass-twice! (I swear I’m not making that up) and then stated that the cappuccino with Almond milk - which was clearly on the menu- may not be available because “we may be out of Almond milk”. Really? You couldn’t just send someone to the Kroger to buy a carton? Someone in management of this place needs a reality check. Oh, and I was not fond of the 20% service charge automatically added to the bill without prior notification for a party of four. For the price that we paid, service and quality were lacking.

    PAO Detroit - Modern DiningResponded on January 11, 2023Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are sorry to hear that you experienced a lack of focus from the servers and that you feel the menu doesn't live up to expectations. We are constantly striving to give our customers a better experience and your feedback is invaluable in helping us reach that goal.

    I was meeting someone for a date, and mentioned this. The staff seated us in a very narrow table but far away from the other person. Coupled with loud music, and seated in the middle of the restaurant, it was the worst accommodation. My date and I agreed we would likely never return. Bad experience. Insensitive and obtuse setup to accommodate a 1st date.

    PAO Detroit - Modern DiningResponded on January 8, 2023We are sorry to hear that we did not meet the level of 5 star service we strive for.

    Decided to try this spot after wanting to dine in all summer. We had early reservations and amazing service was provided by Daisy from start to finish. The food on the happy hour menu were small delectable bites from the main menu with a few cocktails. We tried them all. After a few cocktails, we ordered the miso sea bass and short ribs. Both meals were nothing short of astounding! We also ordered 2 sake flights that were good. I recommend to arrive when the restaurant first opens as we left around 6:30 it did get louder and the crowd started to come in. Overall great experience! Can’t wait to come back

    This was my 2nd time here. The menu didn’t have many options. They were all small plate. The lobster roll was bland & unsatisfying. The drinks were great & service too! However cellphone service on the top level was bad. Overall I would go again maybe in a different time of year if they have different food.

    The menu was quite limited, but we managed to fill ourselves up. The environment was wonderful, music too loud and unnecessary since the space itself is lively. We would return with better knowledge of the 'small plates' concept that the menu offers.

    pao was great for an early dinner on my dads birthday, the food was delicious and the drinks were great, however, the service was very slow and scattered, the staff was all gathered at the front hanging out what looked like owners or managers also not really doing anything, they didn’t bring us two of the things we ordered and things came to the table very sporadically. the space is really lovely, however they were playing like top 50s radio pop which I thought really took away from the experience. some elegant or at least well thought out music would have made the meal feel that much more special and elevated, it didn’t feel like it matched the restaurant at all

    PAO Detroit - Modern DiningResponded on December 26, 2022Ale, we want to thank you for your feedback. Pao Detroit is known for having a club vibe. Our dishes are meant to come out sporadically since we are known for our tapas style shareable dishes. We sincerely hope you come out and give us another try.

    Food was decent. Service was horrible. Waited forever to have sever even acknowledge we were there. Entrees didn’t come out together. Staff didn’t look like they knew what they were doing, nor did they care and neither did the manager. Worst service at a high end restaurant that I’ve ever experienced.

    Food was good but portions were small. WILDLY unimpressed by the service. Additionally, a 20% gratuity was automatically added and it was a random night in December. I have worked in the industry for a while myself, so 20% is an automatic from me even if you call me names and spit in my food, BUT as this wasn’t a holiday and we were a group of 2, I hardly assume that is restaurant policy ESPECIALLY considering it was not communicated prior to receiving the check as has been my typical experience with automatic gratuity. Overall, I wouldn’t go back and I’d advise others against going with so many other great options in the area.

    PAO Detroit - Modern DiningResponded on December 22, 2022We are sorry to see your 1 star review. It is always helpful and we want you to know we value your feedback and your business.

    When I previously dined at PAO a few weeks ago I had a wonderful experience. I returned and brought 2 other couples with us this time. I was embarrassed by the terrible service and the fact that a 20% tip was automatically added to the bill. When I shared my concern with the manager he was rather ambivalent. Very disappointing!!

    My cousin and I decided to try this place out on 12/16. We both ordered the Wagyu Sliders for appetizers the Mango/Peach Preseco drink. The sliders and drink tasted great. My cousin enjoyed the lamb chops but the truffle fries has this weird powder on the fries that did nothing for the taste. My short ribs were good but way more saltier than I would have liked and for $32 I would have appreciated more than 2 spoons of mashed potatoes. It was literally only 2 spoons and was confirmed by my waitress who stated that the mashed potatoes come in a plastic bag and they literally only squirt a dollup per plate. She also stated that mashed potatoes were not on the menu or sold separately so I couldn't order extra either. This was really disappointing as the potatoe to meat ratio was terribly off. We ordered the cheesecake and butter cake for desert but had to send it back. The cheesecake turned out to be more ice cream and cookie crumbles than cream cheese and the buttercake was dry and crumbly. I would not recommend getting dessert from this place. Overall it was an "ok" dining experience. It was nice experiencing the restaurant but I'm not in a rush to come back. I feel like Coopers Hawk is a far better experience with more bang for your buck if you're looking for an alternative

    Over salted , over sauced food. Odd flavors. Almost like trying to “overdo” it. We have an extensive palette but the “excessive spices” were not complimentary ” Lamb chops over cooked . Ordered MR , served MW. Waygu sliders were tasty but small little dots with 2 x the size buns. Frozen French fries. Server added 20% gratuity for party of 2 , which is probably company policy but we always tip 25-35% so she misses out. Yes we could have added more but that is a turn off if you will, when companies do that for small parties.

    1- Noise level is atrocious; 2- Portions are undersold as “small”, which leads to over ordering (waste of food and my money) 3- My reservation for a table did not guarantee prompt seating at 6:30pm, and the only options were to either take a table for 8 upstairs, or a minimalist sized 2-seater table in the “corridor” downstairs.

    A bit of a typical bar scene. Not sure what the scene is? Restaurant or bar? The outside flashing green lights were a bit of a turn off, not very classy! Service was good, very attentive but not very polished. Again this is a typical bar with an attempt to have fine dining. The food was full of sauces and very basic. The biggest turn off were the two bathrooms that had line ups , and it wasn't a busy night. Beware of the added 20 percent gratuity to the bill. We were only two people and our bill had gratuity and when we questioned we were told that is their policy. It is ok to have that on larger groups, but not for two people. Most likely will never go back. The crowd was very "interesting" !!

    We really enjoyed our dinner and drinks. The only tough part was parking, we didn’t realize there was a red wings game and we had to pay $30 to park in a lot and walk. The valet wasn’t running so that made the experience a little frustrating. We will be back, but parking was tough!

    PAO Detroit - Modern DiningResponded on December 5, 2022We are sorry that our valet service was not available to you. Thanks for sharing how great your food and drinks were.

    Great vibes!! Good service!! Definitely would like to come back and party closer to the dj.. this seemed to be where all the action was... I would have liked a special sparkler or something for our engagement.. would have been a nice touch but service was overall great!!
