    We generally regarded Pao as one of our favorite restaurants downtown. We've been there 6 to 7 times in the past 6 months . The recent menu change was a surprise, but ok, we understand the need to simplify. We were celebrating a friend's birthday, she was visiting from Florida. We had reserved a booth. We had good choices from the menu, appetizers, pao shrimp, ceasar salad, seasoned fries, main course, lamb chops and filet Drinks, martinis. Food and drinks were good. The issue , is about 70 minutes into the evening and celebrating, the server told us we cannot be served drinks anymore. Remember, we've been there 6 times before. That was completely inappropriate to say to our group. No one was intoxicated or acting ridiculous.. 6 times before, there was never a problem with our $600 plus bill. The place was 50% empty at 10pm in the evening.. Then the manager, completely full of it, comes over to explain absolutely nothing. 6 times before you didn't say anything, we had exactly what we've always had.. We will not be returning anytime soon to a restaurant that treats patrons with this level of disrespect , in a place half full.

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We value your feedback and will discuss this matter with our management team to better understand the situation. We appreciate your past patronage and hope to serve you again in the future.

    It is a Detroit Gem! Come and try it, you won’t disappoint! It was our second time here. The last time was before pandemic, so I was really concerned if the business could sustain, but I’m glad that I’m back and the food is still as good as I remembered, if not better!! I definitely recommend the dessert! The amount is perfect for after a satisfying meal, and the food presentation is artistic just like this unique place which was an old theatre before. Highly recommend!

    Prices and portion sizes don’t make any sense. For example fish tacos. Also, the music playing by DJ Is way too loud for anyone to hold a conversation with anyone else.
