Not only do I love Paupau's my entire family does as well! It's always made to order with fresh and cooked perfectly ingredients. We order to go at least a couple times a month! ! It's perfect for every occasion and finicky tastes. My Favorite!

Although PauPau's is a small restaurant, the food is excellent. The ingredients are always fresh and everything is cooked to order. My family, friends and I have never been disappointed when eating there. Whenever out of town people come to visit, PauPau's is where we take them for Chinese food.

Paupau's is a very small local place. The food is outstanding. The atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired. Just a small well lite place with paper pictures of Hong Kong on the walls. I always get my order to go. The Chinese food can't be beat always fresh and flavorful. One of my favorites.

It's like Chinese home cooking. Small place, low overhead. Doesn't take debit or credit. Checks okay. When I'm sick I love getting the vegetable soup in mass quantities and adding the chicken curry dish in it to spice it up. The curries are really good. Also good the Bokchoy chicken, egg drop soup, and the noodle dishes.

Tucked in a small strip mall this is an Idaho gem you don't want to miss. For over 15 years I have enjoyed their wonderful food and friendly staff.

I agree with another reviewer that the setting is plain but don't let this stop you from trying the food. The food was very good. We enjoyed it this summer and then went back this winter when we were passing through. Also, it's not on the main road through Hayden.

My family loves the pork fried rice. The rest of the food is good. I like the beef with broccoli too. Reasonably priced.
