I don't understand why Paupau's has so many outstanding and good ratings. I considered a one star rating, but thought it too severe. I have tried Paupau's twice and been terribly disappointed both times. I won't be back again. The place is not going to...More

I call in and order take out once in awhile. PauPau's special is my favorite, sometimes there is quite a wait, last time was 30 min wait.

We eat here often, best Chinese food in North Idaho by far. Fresh and always tastes great. The war wonton soup, combo fried rice and Kung pow beef is the best. Sweat and sour chicken is great as well.

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...More

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...More
